Selling on Hello Pretty - the top online South African design market.

1. Read this!

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 keep any of your stock, ever, or require you to send a sample. It's your shop and you're responsible for quality control.
  • We don't prescribe your policies or pricing
  • We don't insist on exclusivity or lock you in

We aim to be as open and transparent as possible, because the only way Hello Pretty works for us, is if it works for you. Group hug!

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 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 you have any questions or suggestions contact us! We're listening.

What will it cost?

Hold up. Remember what we said above about being brand new? This means that we're still figuring everything out and these prices are liable to change in either direction.

There are two price options: the Starter and the Standard.

NB: on both plans there's an R8 payout fee, only charged once per week. This is to defray the cost of the bank transfer.
