In this short article you will read and learn about the initial steps of selling your products via Click2Sell system. The process is very simple, short and costless. So let’s begin:
- Signup to Click2Sell
Signup is absolutely free and you need only one account for both merchant and affiliate activities. There are also no upgrade costs, no monthly fees and so on. Once you finish your registration, you can start using Click2Sell immediately.
- Add a product
After you login to Click2Sell member area, go to “For Vendor” section and then click on “Add product” link in green sub-bar:
Fill in the required fields going through all the necessary steps. If you are not sure what one or another field means, you can move your mouse over [?] symbol and read an explanation. See an example below:
(of course, you can always contact Click2Sell Support if you have any question).
- Get “buy-now” buttons
Once you finish creating a product, at Step 5 you will see such page (you can also find this via: For Vendor -> My Products -> “Buy Now Links” in the table):
“Your direct link:” is just a simple URL which leads to Click2Sell checkout page. There is no difference for your buyers between this “direct link” and scripted “Order Now!” link (the first one with the grey field full of java code), but we recommend using scripted link or button because they gather statistical information about your visitors, views, conversions (and so on) which you can see in your Click2Sell account.
On the left column you can see what will appear in the place where you put the code (from the grey text field): it can be just a simple text link “Order Now!” or a graphic button. Choose the desired one and copy all the code from the grey text field.
- Paste the code into your website
Paste the copied code into HTML area of your sales-page. Be sure that you don’t accidentally alter the code. Check your page via your browser to see if it’s working correctly.
Well, that’s all. Basically, you have done all the necessary steps in order to start selling your product via Click2Sell. Once a buyer purchases your product, Click2Sell will automatically register the purchase and gather all the required information about transaction.
If you need a thorough review of each option and setting in product adding process, please read this article "Everything About Products Management at Click2Sell (Part 1)".
By the way, just make sure that Click2Sell buy-now button is not placed nearby other payment options (for example, Paypal button or your own shopping cart). Potential affiliates who see more than one payment button (e.g. Click2Sell.EU and Paypal) might not want to promote your product, because there are high chances that customers (brought by affiliates) would click on another payment button and the commissions would be lost. So in order to prevent this – always use only one payment button on one sales page.
