What is the Shopstar Marketplace?
'Dropshipping' is the process whereby you as a Shopstar store owner can offer your products up for sale through the Shopstar Marketplace, and from which hundreds of other Shopstar store owners can sell it on your behalf at a commission fee determined by yourself.
What does it take to become a Marketplace Seller & Supplier?
To sell products on the Shopstar Marketplace, all you have to do is activate your Marketplace profile. Once you're activated:
- You can browse from a wide variety of products and simply add them to your store with a single click.
