Congratulations! You're now an official Department Store vendor. Below you'll find all the information you'll need about how to get your items up on our store, terms and conditions ( which we advise you read through thoroughly ) and additional tips and advice on how to boost your sales.
How to get your items up:
1.) Go to: https://peopleofprint.marketplaceadmin.com/reseller_admin/ and click Register and fill out all details. Click 'save' and wait to be approved.
2.) Once approved you’ll receive an email, then log into your account here: http://peopleofprint.marketplaceadmin.com/reseller_admin/ (Where you registered).
3.) Go to ‘Products’ and click 'Create Product'.
4.) In ‘Categories’ tick the category your product fits into. (Select up to two)
5.) Next, fill in the details of each product, add title and description. Please add your email address in the description of EACH product. This is so customers can get in contact with you regarding issues with shipping and won't have to go through us.
If it’s a print please format as below:
Size- A2 (594mm x 420mm)
Paper- Heritage 315gsm heavyweight smooth Edition- 35
Process- Hand screen printed
6.) Please add product photos, 3 is the minimum, the more, and the better quality, the more likely it will sell. Longest side should be 1024px minimum, preferably square images, as they look best. Make sure you first select how many you’re going to upload.
7.) Enter variants if necessary.
Note: If you are a shop or gallery that is on the annual, bi-annual or monthly payment scheme, please add each variant as a separate product. This is due to the commission settings that we are working with our developer to fix.
8.) ‘Price’ is how much you want to sell it for. ‘Your Portion’ automatically deducts fees and our commission.
Note: Again if you're a shop of gallery, this will not apply to you as we take no commission from your sales. Our system will work out our usual 20% commission, which we then have to change manually from our end once you have uploaded the items.
9.) ‘Compare Price’ lets you set a higher price if the product is on sale. However if it is not, please do not put any value in the box.
10.) ‘Weight is how heavy it is, make sure this is not set to 0.0kg, otherwise free shipping is automatically applied.
Shipping. Now this takes a while to fill out, but it is very important, please make sure ALL countries are checked and filled in.
First make sure you check ‘Require Shipping’, then fill in ALL the country shipping costs and delivery time.
Please do not fill in the Expedited Delivery options (you have to un-click them manually, we know... we can’t change this currently, sorry).
If the countries costs and delivery times are not filled in, then they will all get set to £0.00 and 0 days.
11.) Check the Exclusive button only if your artwork is not sold anywhere else.
15.) Click Save and it’ll pop up on Department Store! :)
