VENDOR PROGRAMME OVERVIEW
Q: What is it?
A: The econovix Vendor Programme allows anyone to set up an own online shop on the econovix marketplace in order to market and sell their products online.
Q: How does it work?
A: Firstly, you will complete the short application form to sign up as a Vendor on econovix marketplace. You will then receive an email from us, asking you to submit the required documents and a logo for your business and to provide your existing PayPal account email to receive payments or to set up an account on PayPal. If your application is approved, you will be sent a username and password to login onto the econovix marketplace and to list your products. These products can be 'packaged services', e.g. accommodation nights, consulting hours, virtual, digital or physical products. Shoppers may purchase your products by placing them into the econovix marketplace shopping cart and checking out. We take care of all payment processing on your behalf and then forward you the order for fulfillment.
Q: How much does it cost to participate in this program?
A: There is no cost to get started. Once accepted for participation in the program, you can list as many products as you'd like. econovix marketplace simply retains a nominal percentage (minimum 15% of your retail price) whenever you make a sale. This is used to cover the hosting costs for your online shop on the econovix marketplace and the payment processing fees. That's it!

A: Your econovix Vendor Account will need to be verified with business identification/documentation. Approvals typically take just 1-2 business days. Once approved, you can immediately begin uploading your products and selling on econovix marketplace.
