- Enter your basic information and proceed to the seller information page where you will have to select the registered business option. Do note that you need to have your business registration number ready.
- The next page will have you enter your shop information- Shop name, phone number, Pick-up address and your email address.
- The next page is all about shipping and it is necessary to have at least 1 shipping channel activated for your store. Standard shipping is the default setting so do make sure to visit the shipping settings page, if you wish to make more changes.
- As a registered business/brand you will need to establish a strong presence and store identity.
- If it isn't exactly obvious to buyers what your shop is peddling they will go to your shop description for a synopsis of what you are all about. As such it is vital to have a well written and concise description with key information like your main products, brand legacy and whichever other information you think sells your products best.
