How it works
Selling – creating a shop is easy, fast and free. The seller can have an unlimited number of listings, but a minimum of four items. The prices of products are set by the shop owner, but the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce takes 10% per item and 4% for virtual goods such as gift certificates. Sellers can choose which payment options to offer buyers, including credit cards, debit cards, and PayPal, among others. Sellers will need to have a PayPal account to be reimbursed immediately. Sellers are in charge fulfilling all orders. Sellers are responsible for all City and State sales tax. Seller can choose between store pick up and shipping options with their established shipping rates.
Sellers need the following to set up their profile:
- business logo size 165 x 165
- business profile images size 185 x 185 and banners sized size 900 x 225 pixels
- merchandise photos must be 1024×1024 pixels (less than 15MB)
- synopsis of your business 50-75 words
- seller policy
- Paypal account
Buying – On the homepage, potential buyers can type a “product description” into the search bar, or, alternatively, they can “browse” through a list of options on the left side of the homepage, which includes Art, Home & Living, Jewelry, Women, Men, Kids, Vintage, Weddings, Craft Supplies, Trending Items, Gift Ideas, Mobile Accessories, and more. Buyers can also see the different stores on a Seller Tab and review all products a Seller has to offer.
