Congratulations on deciding to be a seller on SparkleSwap!  Here is a handy guide to step you through the process of setting up your vendor account:

Register to be a Vendor

Register to be a vendor.  You can choose between the Free and High Volume plans.  If you plan to sell a few things here and there, the Free Plan should be a good fit, as there is no monthly fee; just a nominal percentage of the sale paid to SparkleSwap.  The High Volume Plan is great if you plan to sell a large quantify of items each month.

(Note: if you have signed up for the Special Introductory Plan, you will be moved to the Basic Plan after 30 days.  Don’t worry, you won’t be charged anything unless your products sell.)

Seller Dashboard

Once you’ve registered, go to the Seller Dashboard to complete additional information about you, your account, and the products you will be selling.

Store

Tell us a little more about yourself and your products on the Store tab:

    1. Store Name and Description
    2. Store Address – this will be used to calculate shipping costs should you choose to work with our preferred shipping partner, Shippo.
    3. If you are going on vacation or need to post a special notice on your shop page, you can enter those on the Store tab as well.

Payment

We’ve proudly partnered with Stripe for processing payments on SparkleSwap.  Connect your existing account or create a new account for free.  It’s quick and easy.

Branding

Upload a Logo and Banner image.  These will give your store some personal style and pizazz.

Social

Let customers know where they can learn more about you and the products you sell.

Policies

If you have any policies regarding purchase terms and conditions, privacy or returns and refunds, you may list them here.  Note that in some cases, the SparkleSwap terms and conditions will supersede individual seller policies.  Click here for more information and SparkleSwap Terms and Conditions.

Shipping

Select the Shipping method for your store.  We recommend using Calculated Rates, which will automatically calculate shipping costs and allow you to print shipping labels at a discounted rates.  You will be prompted to create a Shippo account, which is simple and free.
