Selling Tips

There are many different ways to go about selling items online. Here are a couple things to keep in mind when selling items on Storenvy:

  • Be sure to select the correct category for your items. A lot of shoppers who come to Storenvy are looking to browse the site and see what’s there, rather than searching for a specific item. If your product is something they would love, but isn’t in the category they’re browsing, they’ll never see it.
  • Don’t steal traffic from other Storenvy users. The Storenvy community is a positive and encouraging place, and leaving links to your store on another store’s page or items, is not appropriate on Storenvy.
  • Keep your customers in the know. Is your store going on hiatus? Only accepting custom orders? Make sure you share that information on your storefront.
