What is the best thing about having your own Dropshipping shop?
Is it that you can be your own boss?
Is that you can work from home?
Is that you get to set your own hours?
Well, all of these things are pretty great, but the best thing about your Dropshipping shop is when you get paid!
How does it work?
When a customer buys a product from your shop, that payment is sent directly to the payment processor you have selected in your SellStream account.
Sometimes, the payment processor will wait a day or so before releasing the money into your account. Because of this, the merchant will need to fulfill the order using your own money. We recommend that you set up a business credit card to use for making these purchases. You can rack up points, and then pay it off once the customer’s payment is released to you.
But before the money will go into your payment processor account, you need to do something first.
What do you need to do?
It’s quite simple really. Log into your SellStream shop, and navigate to the Payment Settings tab. Select the payment processor you want to use. Currently, the options are either Stripe, PayPal or Square. We recommend that you only select one payment processor, and we highly recommend using Stripe for various reasons. However, if you are going to sell a high risk product, you should sign up to use Square.
Fill out the information needed for the payment processor, and click the “Update Payment Settings” button.
And that’s it. You are all set to get paid!!
