What are the fees for opening an Eatsie.us shop?
It is FREE! Currently for a limited time there are NO fees to open your Eatsie.us shop! No subscription fee or membership fee will be required for a limited time from now until after our initial opening on March 15, 2019. At Eatsie.us there are no fees to start your business, and getting started is quick and easy. What’s even better is there is no minimum requirement for product inventory or product listings. When you sell a product from your Eatsie.us shop, Eatsie.us will receive 13% of your total sales, not including shipping and handling charges. 10% is for providing you a great, easy to use platform for your worldwide shop (that’s an incredible deal), and the additional 3% is for card processing and service (totally reasonable considering how much these things cost a business such as this one, and that charity fundraising websites such as GoFundMe charge an administrative fee of 10%, minimum…)
How do I get support for my shop?
We are available for website support. Please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at our office in Bozeman, MT (406) 522-0416, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
What marketing opportunities are available to promote my shop?
Aside from free nation wide targeted marketing campaigns, Eatsie.us offers special marketing promotions on the site that you can choose to participate in. You will chose your budget to promote any particular item(s) you would like to promote. Once you set up your promotion, you will want to customize your campaign in a way that makes the most sense for your business and budget.
In addition to promotions, discount codes will be available for your store upon request so that you can offer limited time discount orders for your store. If you distribute a discount code for your store, the discount will be taken from your proceeds, but keep in mind, when used wisely, promotions are a great way to drive traffic to your Eatsie.us shop.
