How Does Sellfy Work?Sellfy is an ecommerce platform that makes it easy to sell digital and physical products online. You can either set up a Sellfy storefront or embed a Sellfy shopping cart on your website. Thousands of writers, designers, music producers, retailers, and filmmakers are already using the platform, and it’s ideal for those who already have an established audience on social media or have a blog following. In 2017, the platform scrapped its marketplace along with the Search bar, choosing to focus on gleaning the individual sellers and their stores. Their mission is to build the tools each creator needs to help them foster the personality of their store, and help them grow their business. The platform does all the heavy-lifting of digital goods’ sellers: product storage, payments, and product delivery while providing sellers with tools to create, build and grow their business with ease. If you want to sell physical products you will need to have your own storage and delivery methods. However, everything else is automated the same way as in digital product selling leaving you with a lot of time to focus on your business growth and marketing.
Sellfy Review: StorefrontIf you don’t have an existing website and wish to run a full online store, Sellfy makes it easy to get one up and running. The user-friendly website builder will let you set up in under 5 minutes, and there’s plenty of room to customize the site to fit your branding. From buttons to text, to backgrounds — you can change all of it or none of it. There’s also an option to greet your customers in their language, by letting your customers see your website translated into their language based on their location. Most importantly, all of this comes mobile-ready, with an exceptional shopping experience for your customers regardless of whether they’re browsing on desktop or mobile.
Digital Products & SubscriptionsNow that we’ve established that Sellfy is a platform great for selling digital goods, let’s take a closer look at what that means. The platform supports the following uploads:
- Graphic design
- And more
- Subscription boxes
- And anything else
Reports & Tracking pixelsThe platform comes with powerful analytics and reporting features. You can track where your traffic is coming from, your best selling products, and even where in the world you’re most popular. You can also track social media ad pixels to see data for your Facebook and Twitter ads in one place. You have all the information you need at a glance so that you can tweak and optimize to ensure growth.
Sellfy Marketing & SEOSellfy also comes fully equipped with built-in email marketing and SEO features. This means sellers need to worry less about finding extensions that will work with their ecommerce store. You can start building your mailing list and then use it to send newsletters, thank you notes, product updates and more right within Sellfy. There’s also an option to generate discount codes under the same roof, and boost sales with upsells. You can keep engaging customers with steals and deals, without needing to find a third-party provider. You can also embed the Sellfy shopping cart anywhere on the world wide web. You can add an extra channel by integrating with your Facebook business page or you can add a product gallery on your blog. There is no right or wrong way to persuade people to buy your products, and being available in more than one place may be beneficial. Finally, you can also add cards and end screens (clickable calls to action that slide in and out on your video) on YouTube which will drive traffic to your store.
Sellfy IntegrationsWhatever features Sellfy lacks, you can find it on Zapier — an app store for all your ecommerce needs. You can integrate with thousands of extensions and plugins, designed to automate everything from marketing, to selling, to customer management. Lastly, Sellfy integrates with Facebook Messenger, which means you can connect and talk to your customers live, providing them with top-notch customer service.
Two Payment OptionsIt’s becoming tradition, or almost a no-brainer, to offer the two most common payment options for all ecommerce platforms. At the moment, sellers can either accept payments via PayPal or Stripe. The good thing about this is that PayPal takes payments from almost 200 different countries, and Stripe makes it easy to pay by credit card on your store.
Sellfy PricingThe good news is, Sellfy has a free trial where sellers can give all these features a test-drive before they commit to the $29, $59, or $129 per month subscription fee. There are three plans to choose from, and one caters towards beginners, while the others serve higher volume sellers. So let’s take a look at what you get for your money: Pro $29 – Unlimited products, custom domain, discount codes, advanced analytics, 0% transaction fee, and more features. Business $59 – All of the above, plus email credits and product upsells Premium $129 – All of the above, and priority support, and free migration.
