How do I get started?
Sweet! You've made it through the curation process and are ready to become a Cargoh seller. With your valid credit card in hand, follow the basic steps create your store, upload product and start selling in a matter of minutes!
How much does it cost?
At Cargoh, setting up your store is completely FREE! We have tied our success to yours. Only when you sell something do we take a small (8%) transaction fee. You win, we win! No listing fees, no setup fees, no monthly fees. All applicable fees will be charged to the credit card on file at the end of the month.
What can I sell?
Cargoh is a curated marketplace for independent art and design. What does that mean? It means we are not a handmade marketplace, or an hobby site. We are looking to showcase the very best artists and designers from around the world. Great design is what we are passionate about, and we don't believe it has any boundaries.
How many products can I upload?
There is no limit to how many products you can upload, however, we do ask that you consider the flow of your store. Products that are the same, or at least work well together are suggested. Do you have a few different things that you sell? Contact us and we can offer suggestions.
Do I need a paypal account?
Yes. Paypal is the way you get paid! PayPal enables global ecommerce by making payments possible across different locations, currencies, and languages. With 153 million people out there using Paypal to buy things online, it has quickly become the global standard. It is unbelievably easy to get a paypal account. You can do that here. Make sure you sign up in the country that you live in, otherwise it can get complicated.
