Shoplocket Review & $100 Michaels Gift Card Giveaway!


ohhhhh do i have something fun to show you today.  i know there are a ton of you ladies out there who have been pondering selling their patterns, handmade lovelies and more online but have hesitated due to all the work that is involved with setting up an etsy shop etc.  it takes a lot of work and not all of us have time for it.  but guess what?  worry no more m'dears!  check out the new site shoplocket!!!  it takes all guesswork out of selling online and what makes it so unique is that you create your listings FOR FREE and it gives you a sleek, modern listing that you simply embed on your blog, facebook page etc that you can share all over social media to sell whatever it is you want to sell!! and before you ask...it's so easy.  trust me...it took me less than 5 minutes to set up my listing and the fact that i can set it up to sell directly on my blog and have the pdf pattern go instantly to my customer makes me a very happy designer.


i thought i would show you all a bit about shoplocket and what it has to offer...you know....the inside scoop.  i can't wait to see how many of you are going to go "aha, this is exactly what i've been waiting for" and get those awesome patterns up for sale.  have a cute dress you want to sell - boom...list it on shoplocket and you're done.  flash that lovely listing anywhere you please.

want to know more about shoplocket?  keep reading - there's even a fun video you can watch plus you can enter to win a $100 gift card to michael's! say what? yep, you heard me...lol.  $100 buckaroos people.

 

you ready to hear more about how it all works?  well you simply create your listing, then share it where you would like to sell it.  shoplocket does the rest for you.  no upfront fees and no store to set up.  you can embed your listing on your website, blog, facebook...and more! and if you don't have a blog no worries - you can send people directly to shoplocket to buy your item!  you can sell handmade goods, downloads, printables - even used items!

 

the shoplocket interface is soooo easy to use.  literally all you do is write your wee bit of text, upload an image and fill in your info. as simple as that.  you can go from signup to sales in minutes.  you can even set an expiry on your listing, save drafts, and offer advanced settings for your listings like different colored items and more! if you can use facebook you can use shoplocket.  there is no coding required.  excited yet?

 

shoplocket works with paypal and stripe and is integrated seamlessly with it.  your customers can pay right from your shoplocket listing!  easy right?  there is no storefront required and your lovely followers & customers can purchase your item from anywhere you embed your listing!

how much does it cost?  it's absolutely free to sign up and to list your items for sale.  you only pay on the sales you make and even then it's not very much. even their pricing simple: there’s no up-front or monthly fees, you only pay when you sell. when you sell a product, you’re charged 2.5% plus any payment processing fees from paypal or stripe fees. so if you’re selling something that’s $20, you’d pocket $18.62. 

so what do you think?  do you have some handmade lovelies or digital goodies you want to sell this holiday season?  why not give shoplocket a try :)  check out the video below to learn even more about shoplocket.

  5. I am a part-time metalsmith and I mainly focus on jewelry (silver, gold, etc), but sometimes I make non-jewelry items like belt buckles, wall hooks, etc.
