Gone are the days when it took an arm or a leg to create an online store to sell your products. The internet has evolved and now there are a plethora of options to choose from. Some of which are free and some you’ll need to pay for. In this guide, we show you how to create an online store using Selar in 4 simple steps.

Step 1: Sign up on Selar to create your online store

To get started, you need to click the sign up button at the top right corner of the website and fill in your details. You can also sign up using your social media accounts. Either of these options will take you less than a minute.

You’re live on Selar

Now that you’re live on Selar, you have a dashboard displaying your username and unique store link. After you’ve added your product(s), you can send your store link to customers on social media, email or any channel you want.

Next, click the ‘add a product’ button and you’ll get the prompt to set your bank account details.

Step 2: Set up your bank details for your online store

Enter the bank account information we’ll use to make payouts when you make sales on your Selar store. While Selar supports over six currencies today, all you need is your local bank account, and well convert the funds and credit that account using very favorable FX rates.

Step 3: Choose your product type

After saving your account info, now it’s time to add your products . You have quite a selection of product types to choose, ranging from digital downloadable products, online courses, subscriptions, tickets to physical products. Simply select the type of product type you’d like to add to proceed. In this post, we’ll be creating a physical product.

Step 4: Add product info

Upload the product image, fill in the name, price, description and other product information customers will want to see. You can add details like striked out prices to show price discounts.

Handling digital products

If you’re uploading a digital downloadable product, you’ll have the option to upload the file directly, so users get to download the file immediately after the purchase. Sweet right? No more trying to send digital content to your customers after they pay via bank transfer.

There are also a lot of customizations you can make to your product, e.g making it a pre-order product, customizing the URL, setting a redirect URL (perhaps you have a click funnel like process).

Once you’re done entering all the product details, click the “Post product” button, to publish the product. You’ll also have a direct link to the product, so you can share that product link or your general store link.

With these 4 easy steps, your online store is up and ready to do business. From your dashboard, you can make changes to your store however you want. After you create your online store, you can start selling online immediately, and also receive payments from customers all over the world in the supported currencies which includes United State dollars (USD).
