Selling on Hello Pretty
Smart idea you have to wish to sell on Hello Pretty. We're confident that you'll be thrilled with your choice.
Let us begin by saying this: we are new. We are so new in fact, that you will need an invitation to sell on the site. When you have your invitation and have signed up, you will find that the user experience is still being slickified and frequently updated. Thanks for being patient and understanding that we're working hard to make this amazing.
The way Hello Pretty works is:
- You get to create and control your own store, and every aspect of it
- We don't hold on to any of your stock
- We don't prescribe your policies or pricing
- We don't insist on exclusivity or lock you in
If you're a designer and believe that you're the right fit for Hello Pretty, fill out our application form and let us know about you! We aim to respond within a week. We are extremely selective regarding sellers, as we want to ensure that we are able to promote the best of local design - thanks for understanding.
What will it cost?
Hold up. Remember what we said above about being brand new? This means that we're still figuring everything out, including our own costs, and these prices are liable to change in either direction.
There are two price options: the Starter and the Standard.
|No Setup Fee||No Setup Fee|
|5 products||Unlimited free product listings|
|No monthly cost||R90 per month
- or -
R210 for a 3-month bundle
|15% commission on sales||No commission on sales|
|5% card processing fee||5% card processing fee|
Please note that irrespective of the plan you choose, the 5% transaction charge on sales will still apply, so we suggest that you work that into your products' prices. This is purely to cover the expenses incurred by Hello Pretty from the banks, and unrelated to the 15% commission that we charge on Starter account sales.
How do sales get processed?
When someone makes a purchase from your store, you will immediately receive an email notification of the purchase. It will include all the order details, and give you a link to view the order on your account. At this point, payment has been made (through a secure payment gateway), so you can go ahead and process the order from your side, safe in the knowledge that it's been paid for. Which brings us to...
How do I get paid out for sales?
We do payouts once a week (every Tuesday), directly into your bank account. We charge sellers R8 per payout to defray the cost of our bank transaction fees. Please note that this is subject to change.
If there is demand to support Paypal then we might add this in future.
