Sales are a great way to draw attention to your listings! Please give us as much lead time as possible, two weeks minimum, to allow time to prepare proper promotional materials and announcements.
There are three ways to run a sale in Quiltster.
1. Coupon Code Sales
A coupon code will be provided to you. Coupon Codes encompass all listings within a category. Marketplace Sale Form is required.
2. Targeted Sales
This option requires you to edit pricing for individual listings via the Seller CMS on your own. This is a reasonable option if you’re offering sales on specific listings within a category and need to exclude others in the same category. Marketplace Sale Form is not required. However, if you would like Quiltster to promote your sale along with you, this form will be necessary so we have all the correct information.
3. Gift with Purchase Sales
Offer shoppers a “gift with purchase” that you will manage on your end as Quiltster orders come through. Marketplace Sale Form is required only where a minimum order amount is required to get the gift with purchase or if you wish for Quiltster to promote your sale along with you. Otherwise, the Marketplace Sale Form is not required.
Get the Word Out!
Share your sale information on social media, a series of newsletters, and even on your website to reach as many people as possible. Make it easy for shoppers to find your listings by including a direct link to your Quiltster Shop in all advertisements. Coupon codes must be entered into the shopping cart before checking out so it’s nice to mention that in your advertisements as well.
