Have you heard of ShopLocket yet? It’s an online marketplace, but unlike the ones you’re already familiar with, only you can sell your ‘old but not yet vintage’ goodies! I’m thinking of using it for a little ‘shop my closet’ store to get rid of the still-cute things that I just haven’t worn in ages. It’s great for handmade and vintage, too, of course!
ShopLocket is also neat because you’re not sending your blog readers to an external site to shop. You can sell right on your own blog. Don’t have a blog? You can even sell on Facebook! Instead of drowning in the masses on a big online marketplace, you can sell to the audience you already have without sending them somewhere else and just hoping they only look at your shop. You still have the option to just link to the site, too.
It’s really simple: go to the website, sign up, put in a few details about whatever you’re selling (name, description, pictures, etc.), and then you can share it. The image above is an example of ShopLocket on somebody’s website.
The pricing in simple and straightforward. Instead of up-front or monthly fees, you only pay when you sell. When you sell a product, you’re charged 2.5% plus any payment processing fees from PayPal or Stripe. Example: If you’re selling a dress for $20, you’d keep $18.62 after fees.
If you want to give it a try, it’s super easy to sign up, and since there aren’t any up-front fees, there’s really no reason not to try it out! Because it’s so user-friendly, you can be selling your wares within a few minutes. To sign up, just go to ShopLocket.com and you can be selling almost instantly!
As an added bonus, ShopLocket is going to be randomly giving out FIVE $100 gift certificates to Michaels to people that sign up in the next two weeks!
