Sell Your Products on Hivelist
Are you a Hive member? Do you have a product to sell? We are now accepting vendors to our marketplace! Start your own store right here on Hivelist! This store uses the power of WordPress and WooCommerce to bring the marketplace alive! We accept a variety of crypto currencies as well as we also have fiat payment options like credit card payments through Square, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.
The Hive based payment solution we offer is Hivepay.io, which we accept a small list of tokens, due to market volume and liquidity. We accept: HIVE, HBD, SWAP.HIVE, SWAP.HBD, SWAP.BTC, SWAP.BCH, SWAP.LTC, and SWAP.EOS, SWAP.ETH, SWAP.USDT, and LEO. More options will be added in the future. Other crypto options are BTC, ETH, LTC, BCH, USDC, and DAI via Coinbase Commerce.
How to Register as a Vendor
How do I register as a vendor? Well, first all you have to do is pay the vendor registration fee via HivePay below and then you will be redirected to the Vendor Registration page. You will then use your HIVE username to sign up. This is VERY important that you use your HIVE username to register with the site. This is how we will pay your when you request a withdrawal from the store. Depending on the level you choose, you may have to stake a certain amount of LIST tokens or delegate a certain amount of HIVE to the @hivelist account. The different levels are based on the amount of products you can have in your store.
Vendor Product Offering
You are in charge of your products that you offer. If you make products, be sure to set the correct amount of supply and also you will want to think about including shipping into your price. We will have 2 different shipping options available to you to offer. One is for inside the US and the other is International shipping. If you are a vendor outside the US, you will want to explore the shipping costs of your products and make sure you are charging your customers accordingly. You will be able to set your own shipping options. Also, please be smart and do not offer any illegal products. If it is even questionable, please do not list it. We are running a legit operation and do not want the authorities snooping around if we can help from it. We are not picky, but if we think we will get in trouble for a product that you are offering, we will contact you to take that product down, or we will be forced to remove it. If you have any questions about the products you are offering, please feel free to reach out and we can make sure you are good to go!
What we do is take the payments made in crypto and convert everything into HBD as long as the peg is at or very near $1, if it is not, then we will pay out in SWAP.USDT. All crypto payments will be converted to HBD. Fiat payments will be used to purchase USDC and then converted to HBD or will be paid out of our reserves. When a withdrawal request is made you will be paid in the proper amount of HBD/SWAP.USDT. Once you mark your order as ‘Complete’, it may take some time for your payment to process and be ready for a withdrawal request. It can take up to 20 minutes for this process to happen in the background. Please allow 24 hours for our team to process your withdrawal request.
It is suggested to set up a line of credit, such as a credit card to pay for your vendor and merchandise fees if you are drop shipping, unless you produce the product yourself or you use our fulfillment service (COMING SOON). We will not police your sales, but if we get complaints from customers, we will have to investigate the issues, and possible pausing/termination of your store can occur. You will also be required to handle your own customer returns, unless using the Hivelist Fulfillment service, then we handle that for you.
Aside from the registration charges and staking/delegation requirements, a 5% sales commission will be taken from each sale on the platform. Compare this with other marketplaces at 10% plus… It’s a good deal. Of this 5%, 3% will be paid out to the affiliates. If an affiliate sends a customer to the store and a product is purchased via that referral code, then that affiliate will receive the 3% commission share. The Hivelist Store will receive the other 2%. If no affiliate code is used for a purchase, then the Hivelist Store will receive the entire 5% commission. This will be used to help pay for server fees, administrative assistance, and other operational costs that are encountered, as well as help grow the service further!
Hivelist Fulfillment Service (COMING SOON)
If you don’t want to deal with production, shipping, and all that madness, we will be offering a Hivelist Fulfillment Service! You do not need to be a registered vendor to sell products through our fulfillment service. If you are a registered vendor, we will add the products to your store. If you do not have a registered Hivelist store, then your products will be listed as ‘Sold by Hivelist’, but you will be given credit.
Print on Demand Fulfillment
With this service, we will offer our Print on Demand products using our production vendors and we will handle the payments and middleman work. So, if you are a designer or artist and want to have your own line of clothing and accessories, all you will need to do is provide the designs and we will do the rest!
Physical Product Fulfillment at the Hivelist Warehouse
We will also be offering warehousing and shipping options for your products as well! We will charge a submission fee for each product or design and then will need to pay the shipping to ship the products to us to warehouse. This service is COMING SOON! Currently getting the space setup to accommodate your items!
Ready to get started?
Pay the registration fee below, which is a one time fee, then you will be returned to the Vendor Registration page. Fill out the info using your Hive Username and email address and we will verify your account within 24 hours! Pay in Hive, HBD, Hivelist Token (LIST), or HiveCommerce Token (COM). If paid in LIST or COM tokens, those tokens will be burned and taken out of circulation. We will also be ‘match burning’ LIST tokens!
