Vendors, get help on setting up your store, adding products, managing your orders, shipping options, and more. Simply click the “+” sign to expand any topic.
The first step to selling on our site is to apply to become a vendor. You can apply to become a vendor by completing the vendor application form at the bottom of the “Become a Vendor” page.
From the Become a Vendor page, scroll to the bottom of the page and complete the registration form and click “submit”. Please note that you must include your Shop Name and your email address. You must also provide your PayPal email address as this is required for a vendor to be able to receive payments on our website. If you have an existing store website and/or Facebook page where you sell your products please also include this in your application. If you do not, simply leave those fields blank. We request this information to preserve the integrity of the marketplace and to verify our vendors.
After you have registered for an account, we will review your application within 24 hours and you will receive an email once you are approved. If you do not receive an email, in the vast majority of instances, this is because your email account is either filtering or junking emails from our website.
Please check your Spam or Junk email folders and if necessary add MYEBOOTH.COM to your safe list of domains and email addresses.
If you have taken these steps and still do not see any emails from MyEBooth in your spam folder, it is possible that your email address provider is blocking email at a more basic level. You can ask your email address provider to add myebooth.com to their Whitelist.
If you have completed all of the above steps and still do not have any emails from us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you inadvertently registered for a new Account on the "My Account" page, you have registered for only a customer account. If you want to register as a vendor, simply log on to your customer account from the "My Account" page. You will there see a "Become A Vendor" tab and can click that tab to select the membership that you would like.
Once you have activated your account and verified your email address, you will need to select a membership before you can add products. You will do this from your Vendor Dashboard. We offer 4 different types of memberships:
The Premium and Gold memberships come with a 30 day free trial. Product limit refers to the number of active items a vendor can have in their store at one time.
If you are registering for a Basic or Kids membership, no credit card information will be required of you. If you are registering for a paid membership, you will be asked to provide credit card information. For security reasons, you will be asked to provide your name and address when you register for any membership.
Your membership will be automatically renewed every month until you cancel. If you are subscribed to a paid membership, your credit card will also be charged at that time after your free trial expires.
You will set up your store and add products through the Vendor Dashboard. You can also track Orders, and set up coupons through your Vendor Dashboard. To access your vendor dashboard, log into your account on the My Account page and click on the script/words “Vendor Dashboard.” This will take you to the Vendor Dashboard.
If you are a new vendor, you will set up your store by going to the “Store Setup” tab. Please review the notices for important messages. You can hide the notices after you have read them.
From the Store Setup tab, you will be able to name your store, provide a description of your store, tell people about yourself, and include your store website, if you have one. If you are including your store website, please make sure to include the complete url such as:
If you do not have an existing store website, please leave this blank.
We suggest that when you name your store you leave spaces between the words. This will allow people to search your store more easily.
The store description will appear under your store banner on the desktop and mobile versions of the website. The text that you write in response to the question “Tell everyone about yourself” will appear in the “Seller Info” tab on the single product pages.
You must include your name, and also your store address so that shipping can work properly. These are required fields to be able to sell on our website. However, only the city, state, and zip code will actually display in your store.
The telephone number is completely optional. If you fill in the phone number field, the telephone number you set will appear in your store under your banner.
The store banner is set to a default photo, however, you can change the default photo by uploading any photograph that you would like. The ideal banner size is 1035 x 300. It is very close to the Facebook cover photo. We recommend using Canva and the Facebook Cover template.
You may also upload a store icon. This should be a square image. We suggest that this have the name of your store or be a store logo of some kind. When someone shares your EBooth on social media or by means of a text message, your store icon will appear as the preview image.
If you already have existing social media pages such as Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, or Linked In, you can add links to these pages by going to the “Social” tab. There, you will simply copy and paste the complete url of any social media pages that you have. The respective social media icons will appear on your store banner and when people click on them, they will be directed to the url that you have set.
As a vendor, you can create coupons specifically for your products by clicking on the Coupons tab in the Vendor Dashboard. These coupons will not work on any other products, except for those in your store. You can include only certain products, include all of your products, or even include all and exclude others, or even by category! It can be a percentage discount, or a flat dollar price reduction.
Only items that are “handmade”, “handcrafted”, built, created, made, refinished, or repurposed by a Vendor are permitted to be sold on our website. Art supplies are also permitted. Examples of permissible items:
Items not permitted on our site:
When adding a product, you must decide what type of product it is.
Simple and variable products may also be virtual or downloadable:
You will need to select a category for your item in the Categories section. You will see “All Cities” and “City Pages” as the initial options. Once you click on one of those, you will see additional subcategories appear. Do not just select “All Cities” or “City Pages” You must list your item in a subcategory underneath “All Cities” or “City Pages” or your item will be hidden from view.
If you are willing to ship your item and you want your item to be searchable in the general categories on the Home Page, list your item in the “All Cities” category. Then, select the appropriate subcategory until you reach the bottom category.
If you want your item to be seen on the City Page for your city, and prefer to transact locally, select “City Pages”, and then select your city. Then select the appropriate subcategory until your get to the bottom subcategory.
You can list your product in both the All Cities category and on a particular city page, if you want both local and regional buyers to see your products.
You can set tags for your item in “tags”. Tags are key words that allow your product to be shown when someone conducts a search for a product on the website using particular words. Your tags can have more than one word and can be a phrase. It is not required that you put the # sign before the word.
Set the product price
Regular Price – Your product’s normal/regular price
Sale Price – Your product’s discounted price. This can be scheduled for certain date ranges. The sale expires at 11:59pm of the specified end date. If the product is not on sale, leave this blank.
The inventory section allows you to manage stock for the product individually. Manage Stock must be enabled. Otherwise, you are responsible for updating the Stock Status manually from “in stock” or “out of stock” by editing your product.
Options when “manage stock” is clicked:
Watch the video or read the steps below:
Our website uses flat rate shipping (not table rate). You must set a flat fee/set price for shipping. You can also choose to offer “free shipping" and local pick up for your products.
You can add and manage your products from the "Products" tab of the Vendor Dashboard. When you click the "Products" tab, you will see a listing of all of your products.
To edit, duplicate, view, or delete a product, simply hover over the product with your mouse (or with your finger, if you are using the website on mobile.) You will then see the options appear to edit, duplicate, delete or view the product. Simply click on the appropriate option to edit, duplicate, delete, or view the product.
Please note that your products will also appear on the main page of your Dashboard but you cannot edit your products from the Home page. You must do this from the "Products" tab.
Our website uses flat rate shipping (not table rate). This means that you must set a flat rate/fixed shipping price for your products.
You can set a default shipping rate for your products by going to the Store Setup and then Shipping tab. This will apply the rates you set to all of the products in your store without need for you to set a shipping rate for each product. This works especially well if you will be offering free shipping for all of your products or the shipping rate for your products will be the same for all products in your store.
You can override the default shipping rates by simply going to the shipping tab in a product listing and setting a different shipping rate. When you set a rate/shipping price for a particular product, this rate will be applied if someone purchases that item. If no rate is set and the shipping portion of your product listing is left blank, the default shipping rates that you set for your products in the Shipping tab will apply.
Some additional tips:
NOTICE: Effective August 13, 2020, vendors who want to accept payments through our website must have a PayPal account. If you were a vendor before August 13, please be aware that we no longer use Stripe and that feature has been disabled.
Vendors on our website get paid directly from their buyers via PayPal. You should have inputted your PayPal email address when you registered. If you did not, it is easy to set this up. Simply go to your Vendor Dashboard under "Store Setup" and click the "Payment" tab. You will enter your PayPal email address there. Click "save changes" and that's it!
Buyers on our website will pay for their items by clicking “Buy It Now” and they will be directed to the checkout page where they will either pay for their items by logging in to their own PayPal accounts or if they do not have a PayPal account, they can also provide a credit card, which PayPal will process. When the buyer successfully checks out, the payment is sent directly to the vendor's PayPal account.
A buyer can purchase items from multiple vendors in the same checkout and PayPal will split the payment between the vendors and send the funds to the respective vendors.
If you do not want to accept payments through the website and want to disable the cart system, leave the regular price and sales price sections blank. This will disable the “buy it now” button on the single product pages and buyers will need to message you to arrange purchase and/or pickup of your items. If you choose to do this, please enter the price for your item in your product description, or product title, and also indicate if the item is “local pick up only”, shipping terms, etc.
To make it more clear to buyers that you only accept off-site payments, we suggest that you include this in your store notice. For example, you can state "If you are interested in purchasing my items, please message me. I accept Venmo, Paypal, Square, etc." The store notice appears on all of the single product pages and will be easily visible to buyers. You should also include a similar statement in the item description and can also include this in your "Store Policies" under "Terms and Conditions". The "Vendor Policies" tab is visible on every single product page. There is also a message seller form on every single product page where buyers can easily email you is they are interested in purchasing your item.
You can manage your Orders and see how your store is performing in the Vendor Dashboard. This is a dynamic and always-up-to-date overview of your orders, total products listed and sold, and total sales. You can change the start/end dates at the top to get all your stores sales results or just specific a certain date range. The Order Totals is a bar chart, and on the screenshot below we only had orders for one day, however, it will populate properly for every day of orders for the period chosen. The Product Totals gives you a quick overview of the percentage of sales each product brings to your store’s total revenue. Hover over a slice of the pie with your mouse for the name of the product that slice represents.
To view detailed information for your orders, click on “Orders” in the Vendor Dashboard tab. This will bring you to your orders view where you can see all of the orders that customers have placed for your items. You can add notes which will send an email to the customer, add tracking numbers, mark orders as shipped, and also print a packing slip.
