FAQ: How to schedule a store sale and offer free shipping

Why should I put my store on sale?

We boost sellers who offer store sales, so it’s a great way to get extra exposure. It’s especially helpful during the holidays when the highest number of customers are looking at our site.

We’re also offering a special seller contest for Black Friday 2017 – see the details here.

 

What happens when you put your store on sale:

 

  1. It’s more likely you will show up in search. We have built in features that allow customers to search by discount amount and to filter down to products that offer free shipping.
