Why should I put items on sale?
Items on sale will appear on our sales page which gives them more exposure. Item pages for items on sale also look a lot more exciting with the sales banners and timers!
Potential customers are always looking for a great deal, over the same period you might actually make more money than you would if you weren't running a sale!
Creating a Sale
When you create a sale, it must:
- Start at least 24 hours in the future
- Not result in your products price being sold for less than £0.49
- Must run for at least 6 hours and no more than 240 hours
- Item must be discounted between 10% and 90% (inclusive)
Once a sale is currently active, it cannot be cancelled or modified. An item cannot exceed 60 days on sale over the last 12 months. Two sales for the same item cannot overlap.
Your sale will not be published or knowledge of made available to the general public until it goes live.
Why not put multiple products on sale at the same time?
Promoting the Sale
Be ready to hit Twitter, Facebook, Googleplus, your email lists etc etc when your sale goes lives! The more effort you put into promoting your sale items the more likely you are to get sales.
We recommend you do not promote the sale before it goes live unless you are 100% confident that you are happy for the sale to run. You can get a bit of egg on your face if you promote it in advance and then decide to cancel or change it!
Please note, custom sales you create do not count towards the sale settings you set in your merchant profile. These are additional sales you can create if you so wish.
