Creating your own Branded Store with Shopify
The most efficient (and cost effective) solution available to you right now is to first launch your own store using the (Shopify + SyncLogic) platform/app integration. This enables you to effortlessly sync our entire product catalog using a one-time Connection Code. You can then add additional Shopify apps to expand and grow your business further.
We enable our branded store retailers the ability to offer a custom branded experience for their customers with branded packing slips, personalised messaging and your own logo printed on the outside of every package.
We recommend the following catalog-connection add-on for your Shopify store;
- SyncLogic (Our recommended integration method)
SyncLogic enables you to connect your Shopify store with our entire catalog of products.
TIP! Though we may recommend that you use Shopify, you are of course entirely free to choose any e-commerce platform of your choice and are not required to use Shopify to sell our products.
What are the benefits of a SyncLogic Integration?
With our SyncLogic integration you can use our Shopify Integration Wizard to easily request a connection for integration with our catalog in just a few minutes. Once approved, you'll benefit from automatic catalog updates including both pricing and inventory updates in real-time. You'll never sell an out-of-stock product, or sell something at a loss, ever! With our catalog integration any updates that we make will be automatically updated on your store instantly!
TIP! Each of our brands has a separate catalog source and each will require a separate Connection Code. You can still connect products from all of our brand catalogs on the same store, and at the same time.
TIP! If you'd like to display custom branded packing slips and have your own logo printed on each of the packages that we send, you'll need to integrate with our catalog using Shopify & SyncLogic. This is an exclusive requirement.
Expanding to Marketplaces such as eBay, Etsy & Amazon
We are currently recommending the following marketplace-expansion add-ons;
These marketplace-expansion add-ons enable you to connect your Online Marketplace accounts with your store providing a seamless way to create product listings on marketplaces, using existing product data held within your store.
TIP! All of our products are eligible to be sold directly on all major marketplaces including (but not limited to) eBay, Amazon, Etsy and OnBuy to name a few.
What does it cost to launch a branded store with Shopify?
A basic Shopify subscription will cost $29 per month (14-day free-trial) plus a 2% transaction fee if you use Shopify Payments. You'll also need to add a SyncLogic integration to connect with our catalog which costs a further $19.99 per month (30-day free-trial) and if you choose to expand to marketplaces using the various add-ons for eBay, Etsy & Amazon, you can also expect to pay an additional monthly cost for access to these services too.
If you choose to sell on marketplaces such as eBay, Amazon or Etsy then you should also factor-in the cost of selling on these marketplaces too. Each marketplace will charge their own rate of fees (these are typically between 10-15% of the sale price) for every product you sell. Some marketplaces such as Amazon have an on-going monthly fee for access to the marketplace itself, so remember to take this into consideration also. Though this might seem expensive we have factored these costs into our MSRP & SRP pricing guidelines, which you can choose to follow if you're new to online selling. Every seller has to recognise these costs regardless of their size or starting knowledge. You're at no disadvantage whatsoever and you'll have more than 15 years of experience at your disposal to help you get a head-start.
Though this might seem daunting, we can guarantee you that it's 100% risk free from our side with no on-going costs or commitments to us, no special terms and no contracts imposed. You're free to choose where you sell, what you sell and the prices you charge to your customers are controlled by you, so you can rest assured knowing that you'll always retain full control of your business at all times.
