Basically you set up an event - called a campaign. You add your products with a the price, options, shipping and description. After your products are loaded you schedule your campaign.
When the scheduled time arrives your photos publish to your Facebook page and customers can start shopping.
To purchase, all your customer needs to do is comment, "sold" on the photo and register for your shop. (There is a link published on each photo.) Paypal automatically sends them an invoice and they let you know when an invoice is sent and when it's paid.
You can leave your event up for a few days or delete your photos after a certain a time period or you can schedule an end time for your campaign.
What does it cost? There is a free trial for your first $700 in sales, after that it's 3% of your product price.
It's Easy to use, great customer service and training videos, keeps invoices and sales organized on the app.
Payments are through Paypal only. Customers can register with your shop before an event.
You can only access Soldsie on a browser, not a mobile device. But customers can shop on the mobile device. Customers need to sign up to complete their purchase.
Events work better if you promote them a few days in advance and train your customers about the new way to shop on Facebook. Create an eye-catching graphic and share the basics on your Page a few days before your sale.
What is the advantage to selling with Soldsie? Having invoices automated and a handy way to keep track of those sales helps keep things running smoothly.
I had a successful first run and plan to use Soldsie to sell off extra inventory, for destash events, sample sales and a probably even a holiday stocking stuffer sale.
