Hey everyone! Just wanted to get you an update on Sonlet Shops. We’ve been working really hard to get everything together and we are very excited to launch!
I’m sure you want to know a little bit about what you can sell! Right now we have about 7 suppliers that are confirmed partners. We will be adding more and more, 3 more specifically in November. Each supplier includes thousands of unique items. We have the most beautiful women’s clothing: dresses, shirts, pants, rompers, sweaters, all of that, and they are coming from the same suppliers that sell to big brand stores. And in addition to that, we also have athletic wear, shoes (From Sole Society which is a major supplier for Nordstrom!), handbags, hats, jewelry, and sunglasses. You’ll be able to put together complete outfits, head to toe, pulling from all different suppliers. You can really make this your own shop, name it what you want, make it your style, sell whatever you choose. We also have officially licensed product. Now you each have the license to sell great clothing & accessory product from Disney, Star Wars, upcoming movies like Venom, Harry Potter and your favorite musicians like Rolling Stones and the Beatles.
It’s very easy to set up a Sonlet Shop. It will be just like setting up a Party Page except you don’t have to take pictures or add inventory first. All of the items available to be added to a Sonlet Shop are already there. If you’ve never used Sonlet before, then setting up a Sonlet Shop is about as easy as setting up a Facebook page, where you name your shop, add a cover photo, and contact information, and add the products that you’d like to offer in your Shop.
You can set up as many shops as you’d like, they are meant to be light and easy to setup so that you can create themed shops or specific shops for events, customers, or parties. You can become a personal shopper for a customer and set up their own private shop full of clothing hand picked just for them. You could set up a shop that is Halloween specific. It’s all up to you!
You’ll earn 30%-35% of the retail price of the item. You’ll also be able to clearly see how much commission is available for the sale of each item when you add an item to a Sonlet Shop.
Your customers will be able to pay with any credit or debit card right on Sonlet. Sonlet will collect the funds and distribute your commission to your bank account. You don’t have to invoice or collect any payment. That will all be done for you.
Something else that will be done for you is shipping. The order will go to the supplier, they will pull, package, and ship all from their warehouse. You won’t even need to handle the inventory at all.
We’ve created a simple and beautiful design for Shops that we think you’ll love.
We’ll start adding people to our Beta group in the next few weeks and will be slowly rolling it out to more users until about mid November when we will have full availability.
We are really happy with the way things are turning out and can’t wait to launch. We are happy to answer any other questions you have, feel free to send an email! Thanks for watching!
What will the cost be to me for selling the items? Will I purchase the items first then sell or how will it work?
Hi Holly, great question! As long as you have an active Sonlet consultant account, you’ll be able to offer the items for sale on a Sonlet Shop without paying for the items first. Once the customer checks out on Sonlet, we’ll automatically pay the supplier for the item, the supplier will ship the item to the customer, and we’ll deposit your commission directly to your bank account. You won’t have to put any money upfront to purchase inventory, unless you’d like to order items for yourself to show off during a facebook live or to offer home parties or events.
Hey Holly, great question. Sonlet Shops doesn’t require any buy-in, meaning you don’t pay a fee to Sonlet and you don’t have to pay for inventory (unless you want to order some things for yourself to model for your customers). You’ll be able to add new products to sell right to your Shops. When a customer purchases the item, we’ll automatically pay the supplier on your behalf from the funds collected from the customer and ship directly to the customers. We’ll then deposit the profits right to your bank account.
How will you decide who gets to sign-up first?
Great question Jen. We’re open and we are allowing everyone to signup now. You can get started by following these instructions.
A few questions- if we want to order items for ourselves (ie to show customers pieces in a live, etc) will we receive a discount, or do we pay full price and order from ourselves? How long does it take to be paid once a customer completes a purchase? Who handles returns/exchanges? What is the cost of having a sonlet account- if we already have a sonlet account, will this be included as part of our money fee?
Hi Keitra. Great questions. You should check out the Sonlet Shops FAQs. We answer most of those questions over there. Sonlet Shop’s is included with every consultant account (no need to pay extra). You can enable it on your account here.
Hi! I believe I filled out an interest form or something similar. Will we receive an email when it’s ready to launch or will we be notified in Sonlet? And it’s still looking like a launch in just a couple of weeks? I’m definitely very interested.
Hey Dawn, yes, you will receive an email update from us when it’s ready to use. We’ve had lots of interest (thousands of ladies are on the waitlist), so we’re working as quickly as we can to get everything in order to launch before Thanksgiving.
How are returns handled? Like if one of my customers purchases something and then returns it, how does that work on my end?
Hey Michelle, great question! With Sonlet Shops, you are responsible for handling returns from your customers. Your customer can request a return from you right on Sonlet from their Purchases page. You’ll see the request come through right on your Sonlet Shops Sales page. You can approve or reject the return. If the return is because of a manufacturing defect or a mis-shipment, the supplier is responsible for the wholesale cost of the item, and you should refund the customer the price of the item plus the cost of shipping right from the Sales page. Your Sonlet account will only be deducted the amount of your commission. If the return is for some other reason, you can provide refunds or handle the return according to your own policy, any any refunds come directly from your balance on Sonlet.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to our customer support team at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll add some more how to’s to the knowledge base for handling refunds in the next few weeks 🙂
