You are a budding designer and/or artist, and your friends are totally raving about your products and are ordering from you to encourage you! They like your FB page and tweet about you once or twice. Some go one step further and introduce their friends to you and try and help you make more sales, but then after the initial buzz, you start feeling its not going anywhere and you aren’t able to scale this up into a proper business anyways?
As much as Facebook and email queries come, the conversion rate into a sale is also not a great number. Starting your own online store in the initial days is way too expensive for you to handle.
There is the money you will have to shell out to the web designer, The server and hosting fees, the high advance to pay the payment gateways, the monthly maintenance fees, marketing costs and everything else, simply end up eating whatever profits you might actually make!
Well, we have been there too and know exactly how it feels! Thats precisely why we came up with Shopo!
Shopo is a marketplace that has zero set up fees and maintenance charges! Yes we have a Transaction fees we take from your sales, but that is about the only thing you will be paying us! Our Fees Policy will give you more details on this!
Here is the best part. Shopo also takes the shipping worry off your head! Once you have opened your shop and made a sale on Shopo, all you have to do is pack the stuff well and keep it ready! We have tied up with Fedex currently and are in the process of adding more logistic partners, who will pick it up from your place and drop it at the buyer’s place in a jiffy! The decision about keeping the shipping free for the product (i.e, taking shipping charges upon yourself) or charging it on the buyer is up to you completely!
However, opening a shop on Shopo is not that simple! We screen every application that comes our way and literally handpick every seller that goes on board! However, once you come on board of Shopo, you join the Shopo family! Just make sure we love your stuff (Oh! this is easy! We are suckers for anything cute, pretty, original, funny, ethnic, beautiful, Indian or anything in between!) and we will take care of the marketing for you as well!
