How to start selling on Smart buyers Shop - A retailer guide

Do you have a physical store and you want to start selling on Smart buyers Shop? This guide is for you. In this blog article, we are going to work you through the steps to sell online. As a pre-requisite to use this guide, you need to have products you want to sell. In another post, we are going to discuss how you can do affiliate marketing on our platform. To get started, these are the steps to follow. 

1 - Prepare the content of your website

To sell your products online, you need to write content about the products you want to sell. If you have too many products, we will recommend you start with a few ones. You can, for example, select the ones you believe will be easy to sell online. Some of the  pieces of information people are looking for when they want to buy online are: 

  • Product name - A title to your products. Our team can guide you by doing little keyword research. For instance, the name you know might not be accessible online. As such, finding synonyms that have more search volumes can help you sell better. 
  • Description - Your customers might want to know more about the products you are selling. Unlike your physical store where people can ask questions, users can judge your products with description
  • Photos - Make sure to take good pictures of your products. If you can, you can get a design to remove the background. Otherwise, moving your products to a clean environment might not be a bad idea. 
  • Characteristics of your products. - If your products have other features such as sizes, colours, dimensions, it will be useful if you can include that on your product's extra information. 

2 - Prepare your CSV file

Once you have prepared all the content for your website, you can start making your excel or CSV file. To achieve that, you will go through the following steps: 

  • Create your account on https://smartbuyers.shop/ as a vendor.
