Thank you for signing up to buyfair.global and registering as a Seller. Once your account has been authorised you are able to complete the following steps in order to create your first auction and begin selling your overstock to business Buyers around the world! Let us get started then, shall we?
To start, add a Stripe Account. Stripe is the payment processing system buyfair.global use. In order to set up auctions and to receive payment, you will need to add or create a Stripe account. To do this go to 'Account Details' in the side navigation panel – 'Bank Details' – 'add a Stripe Account', you will be redirected to a form. You will be asked a few questions by Stripe, this ensures that they are dealing with the right brand, to help ensure your security.
Now add your Shipping Methods. This helps to set out the terms of transactions to the buyer. When an order is placed you should be contacted by the buyer to arrange shipping or collection of their purchase. In order to make this process as easy as possible, we recommend filling out your Shipping Methods with as many details as possible. This should include variations in pricing dependent on weight or the region you are shipping to. You can create more than one Shipping Method if you have variations in weight, pricing, or location you are shipping from. These are created by going to 'Shipping Methods' in the side navigation panel - click 'create' and fill out all the necessary information. This Shipping Method will then appear in the list view. If you wish to provide free delivery or collection, you don't have to fill out any information, just simply tick the boxes provided.
Next, you must create your Stock Location. This also helps with arranging Shipping as the buyer can see where the stock is held before placing a bid. Your full stock location will not be displayed on the auction only the city and country where to stock is held. You create Stock Locations by clicking 'Stock Location' in the side navigation panel - 'Create'. Fill out all the necessary information and the stock location will appear in the list view.
Now all the boring stuff is out the way, we can give you some extra tips to really boost your visibility on buyfair.global and give your auctions more appeal.
In order to make the most of your account, we recommend adding a brand image and profile image to help with brand recognition.
