How to Easily Sell Items from your Blog or Facebook!

So, as you know I have an etsy shop where I sell a bunch of crafty odds and ends. And then recently, I started selling wood mounted rubber stamps via a page on my blog. Well. Let me tell you about a new and super incredibly easy (and attractive!) way to sell things directly on your website, blog or Facebook page - it's called ShopLocket.

Seriously, this is so incredibly easy and I will be posting different items for sale here and there because of how simple (and how cute the widget is)! And besides how easy it is, it's even nicer because you don't have to go through setting up an online shop if you are not wanting to do all of that at this time. You can sell as many or as few items as you want. You just sign in with your Facebook account, or simply your email address.

When you sign in, you are taken directly to this simple page. You can list an item by filling out the product name, description, and price, and by adding at least one photo.
Click on Advanced Options where you can track number of items in stock (so you don't sell out without you knowing! :)), add shipping costs or tax and other options.
Once you click Publish (or update if you are making changes like I was in the above photo ;)), you can easily share and promote your product through Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or even email! To put it on your blog, just copy and paste the embed code into the HTML of your blog post. Super simple!

So, how much does this cost?! 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 - which you would be incurring with an online marketplace anyways). So if you’re selling something that’s $20, you’d pocket $18.62
Seriously ya'll. You can be selling products in minutes. To sign up, just go to ShopLocket.com and you can be selling almost instantly :)
