Creating Your First Store Item
Your store is the place where you can sell anything digital. Anything from your pre-recorded videos, courses, challenges, workshops, master-mind classes and much more. This article will help you to get started creating content to sell on your digital storefront!
Check out Laurel Marsh's online store for some inspiration!
Navigate to the Store Page
The first thing you need to do is log in and go to your admin portal, which is the backend of your account.
Then navigate to the "Store" page under the "Payments" section and press the "Add Item" button.
Add Your First Store Item
When you are creating your first item, you will see a pop-up that allows you to name your store page. If you use OfferingTree's website, you can customize the page name for your store. You could name it something more tailored to what you want to sell if you choose (.e.g. Video Library).
Fill Out the Basic Information For Your Store Item
Now you'll fill out all the details about your store item. The item name is the title of your store item and will appear on the store page and the store item landing page. You want to pick something short and to the point (.e.g. 30 Minute Restorative Yoga or How to Build an Online Store 101). Then you can enter custom Call To Action text. This will be displayed on buttons in your store page and on the store item landing page. Next, you'll want to enter a description of your store item. This is where you can really explain the value of your content. You want to give people a reason to invest their time and/or money in your content. You can add rich formatted text and embed images and videos as well. You can refer to articles in this section to add those things to your description. You can also add a feature image to your store item. This will be displayed on your store item card and also on your store item landing page. Pick something that captures the essence of your store item.
Setting Up Payment Options For Your Store Item
Next, You'll set up how someone can access this item. Just like your offerings, you can accept payments in multiple forms and even integrate with Memberships and Packages. You can set a fixed price or check the "Allow tiered pricing" checkbox to have flexible payment options. We ONLY accept Stripe accounts for collecting payments for store items, so make sure you have a Stripe account set up. You can also choose to "Pass fees on" which will add our platform fee of 1.9% to the purchaser's total or you can choose to "Absorb fees" and they will be deducted from your payout.
Membership and Package Access
If you have Memberships and Packages you can allow people with those items to gain access by checking the "Allow Membership and Package Access" checkbox. Here you can choose to give access to "All members and package holders" or you can select which membership levels and packages gain access. If someone has a valid membership, they will receive the item at no additional cost. If someone has a valid package, they will receive the item for one credit on their package.
Now It's Time To Add Your Content
Don't forget to press the Next: Add Content button. This will save your store item and take you to the page where you can add content to your item.
Next, we'll talk about the most important part! The content your store item contains. Head on over to the next article that discusses that topic.
