The backend of Selz: sales simplicity

Does the thought of selling online make you jittery? From working with my writing students, I know that the idea of selling online can be intimidating.

However, it’s getting MUCH easier. I recently discovered Selz.

As I said in this post, Aussie Small Business: Buyer Payments Without Hassle:

“Selz — sell everywhere, sell from your blog or even from Facebook

You can sell both physical and downloadable products via Selz. Pricing is easy: it’s 5% plus 50 cents per transaction — no monthly fees.”

I just uploaded my first product, and it’s so simple you can do it in your sleep.

Once you’ve signed up, and have entered the details of where you want to be paid, you’re ready to sell. Selz pays buyers every two weeks. Australians are paid directly into their bank accounts, other sellers are paid via PayPal.

How to sell on Selz

1. Click the “+Sell an Item” button on your dashboard

2. Choose whether you want to sell a physical item, or a digital item

3. Add your item details

Add item details

As you can see in the image above, you can drag in a graphic for your product.

Then add the details.

If you’re selling a digital product, you get another screen so you can upload your item. Selz will accept most digital files, with a maximum size of four gigabytes. Most of your products will be way under four gigs.

4. Sell on your website, on social media, or on Facebook

Sell on Facebook

You can sell via Selz pretty much from everywhere. You can even set up your own Selz store on A Facebook page.

I’ve just started using Selz; I love it. It’s easy, and FAST.

Here’s my store on Selz.

Aussie Small Business: Buyer Payments Without Hassle

Pin Payments

If you’ve got a small business, you know that Australia’s business payment technology is far from perfect. There are endless hassles. Surely it should be easier?

In The future of payment technology: New systems that could help your business Yolanda Redrup said:

Speaking to the Australian Payments Clearing Association last year, Reserve Bank of Australia governor Glenn Stevens said elements of Australia’s payments infrastructure are “a bit dated”.

“It is very clear that both individuals and businesses are demanding greater immediacy and greater accessibility in all facets of their day-to-day activities,” Stevens said.

Dated is right. However, there are new companies which may have payments systems which could meet your needs.

Let’s look at two of them.

Pin Payments — no merchant account required

Pin Payments was founded in 2011. You don’t need a merchant account to use it, and the price is reasonable: $50 a month, plus 3% and 30 cents per transaction. You can accept payments in an app, as well as via your website.

From the pricing page:

Foreign currency transactions will be automatically converted to Australian dollars before being transferred to your bank account. The conversion is completed at a retail foreign exchange rate of 4% on top of the wholesale interbank rate at the time of the transaction.

Selz — sell everywhere, sell from your blog or even from Facebook

You can sell both physical and downloadable products via Selz. Pricing is easy: it’s 5% plus 50 cents per transaction — no monthly fees.

Selz has a Seller Series on its blog, relating seller experiences.

Julieanne Wallace said of Selz:

Selz has been amazing in helping me to sell my products, and I have recommended it to other authors. I spent an entire day researching and investigating the many stores that one can use to add to websites. In the end, Selz was the easiest to work with, saving me a bucket load of time, and the FAQ page answered all of the questions that I had about the Selz product.
