How to presell products on Selz
If you want to hold a pre-sale or pre-order of a product in your store, here's what we suggest:
- Create an item listing and choose the item type (digital, physical or service)
- List the item as a pre-sale / pre-order item by adding these details into the title and description of the item
Pre-Selling Physical Products
If the item you want to pre-sell is a physical item, you would need to include:
- How the buyer will receive their product on the launch date. This information should always be listed explicitly in your title and description so there is no confusion.
Pre-Selling Digital Products
If it's a digital product you want to pre-sell, it's even easier: upload a PDF or other easy-to-open file type that includes the details of the pre-order. We would suggest including:
- Launch date
- When to expect the book
- How the product will be received
When the launch date arrives, update that item file with the file (e.g. your ebook file). Then, choose to update all previous buyers.
It's a bit more manual, but it does the job and we see sellers do it with success.
