Seller How Tos

Becoming a seller on DapyMart

You can sign up to become a seller by clicking on this link and checking the “Apply to become a seller?” box. You will also need to check the box to accept the DapyMart Terms and Conditions. Once your account is set up, set up your store and check out the videos below to learn how to list your products for sale. You can also click here to review the FAQs.

Setting Up Your Store

Once you have set up your Seller Account, it’s time to set up your store! Go to your Seller Dashboard and click on Settings:

  • Store tab: This is where you can enter your Store Name (required) and other information about your store. Required fields include your Store Name, Your City, State and Zip code. Without entering these details, your customer will be unable to purchase your items as they will get an error for shipping.
  • Payment tab: You must enter your correct PayPal address here in order to get paid for your sales!
  • Shipping tab: Here is where you would enter your Shipping and Return policy if applicable. If you wish to have a default shipping fee for all of your items, you can enter it under this tab. Also, if your items are not shipping from your “store location”, you would enter the “Shipping from” address here.
  • Social tab: If you wish to add social media links to your store, you can put them in here.

Listing Products For Sale

There are three types of products that can be listed on DapyMart. Simple Products, Variable Products and Auction Products and it is very important to understand what these mean. There are minor differences in listing each of these products but understanding the differences before listing your products and reviewing the related listing walk through information below will make your work so much easier!

  • Simple products: If you have a single product or multiples of completely identical products (same size, same color, same style, same everything), these would be simple products. Most sellers with used items (or non-retailers) will be selling a simple product.
  • Variable products: If your customer is able to select a variation of the product (size, color, style, metal, etc.), then you have a variable product. The options will be listed for the product and the customer will select which option(s) they would like. Most retailers or designers will sell a variable product.
  • Auction products (coming soon): If you want to sell a single product to the highest bidder instead of listing a set price, you have an auction product. You can also offer a “Buy It Now” price for auction products.

Listing a Simple Product

Watch the video and/or download the PDF for instructions on adding a Simple Product.

Listing a Variable Product

Watch the video and/or download the PDF for instructions on adding a Variable Product.

**Side note on variable products – no matter what you enter for inventory, the quantity will show as 1 in the product list on your seller dashboard. Ignore this and check your quantities on the actual product listing.

Listing an Auction Product – coming soon

Because DapyMart is newly launched, we are waiting to enable Auction Products until more traffic is coming through the site.

Watch the video and/or download the PDF for instructions on adding an Auction Product.

Local Pick Up

We are working on adding Local Pick Up as a “Shipping Option” for products, however it is not currently available. In the meantime, if you have a large item to sell and would like to sell it to someone who is able to pick the item up from you, please begin your PRODUCT NAME with *LOCAL PICKUP ONLY* and your PRODUCT DESCRIPTION with the following text:

***THIS ITEM IS LOCAL PICKUP ONLY FROM {enter your city and state} AND WILL NOT BE SHIPPED. UPON PURCHASE, YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL WITH CONTACT INFORMATION SO THAT YOU MAY COORDINATE PICK-UP ARRANGEMENTS***

When the item sells, find the order in your Seller Dashboard and click on “Order Note” to send a note to your buyer with your contact information so that they may arrange for item pick-up. Once the item has been picked up, you should click “Shipped” for that item in your dashboard.

Processing Your Sales

When your item sells, you will be notified via email. The email will contain the product title and quantity purchased as well as the price, shipping and taxes paid by the customer. It will also contain any notes that the customer has added to their order and their shipping address.

You can also view all of your customer order details in your Seller Dashboard under the Orders tab:

Once in your orders table, hovering over an individual order will bring up several links for that order:

  • View Order Details: This will show you all of your order details. [Note that the tax breakdowns under the order are currently not displaying correctly – we are working on this.]
  • Shipping Label: This will allow you to print out an address label and picking list for your order.
  • Order Note: If you need to send a note to your customer, you can add it here and it will be emailed to your customer.
  • Tracking Number: This is the most important item in your Order Dashboard. It is where you will input shipper and tracking information for your item which will be automatically emailed to your customer. The most popular shippers are USPS (United States Postal Service), UPS (United Parcel Service) and FedEx (Federal Express). Typing in one of these abbreviations under “Shipping Provider” and entering the tracking number where indicated will provide your customer with a direct tracking link so they can check the status of their delivery. Entering tracking details here will also automatically mark your item as “Shipped”.
  • Mark Shipped: If you are not using tracking for your shipment, clicking on “Mark Shipped” will send a note to your customer that their item has shipped.

Getting Paid

Currently, you will need a valid PayPal account in order to get paid and you must correctly enter your PayPal address in your Seller Dashboard:

Within two weeks after you have marked your item as shipped either by entering a Tracking Number or by clicking Mark Shipped (see above), your funds (minus your fees) will be released to you via PayPal. Again, it is very important that your PayPal address is entered correctly in your Seller Dashboard! The delay is being used to manually process payments while we are in Beta to ensure that everything is running smoothly prior to setting up automated payments. Once we are out of Beta, we anticipate releasing funds much quicker. To get details on Seller Fees, click here.
