    In order to reach even more people (customers!) and get exposure, we have created our Social Marketplace Blomming. Activate this option means enjoying:

    • Social Affiliation. Allow other users (called Blommers) to promote your Shop on social networks. You can create a network of promoters: bloggers, publishers and Social Media Lovers. They will share your products, you will increase your sales. The perfect Social Deal!
    • Marketplace. Your main promoter may be just Blomming itself. If you activate our Social Affiliation, your Shop will appear in search results of Blomming’s internal search engine, in sections of the website and in the iPhone app. Also your Shop could be featured on our Newsletter, Blog or Social Media channels.

    Orders generated on the Social Marketplace are subject to a sales commission. But you get to decide the percentage, starting from 5%.
    This percentage is not added to your plan rate, it is only valid for sales generated by Blommers on their channels or by Blomming Marketplace and its channels.

    Feel free to check further information visiting our Pricing Page and our Terms of Service.

    Note: users registered before April 17, 2013 are subject to the terms described in this article.

  • Edit product, Products 4 July 2012 francesca

    If you want to save time in the management of your Blomming Shop you can use the Mass Editor feature: it allows you to apply changes to multiple products simultaneously.
    Click on “My Shop”, which is the page where you see all your uploaded products. Then just select the desired products by checking the white box in the lower right corner.

    Now you can mass edit the products of your online Shop

    Once you have selected the products you’ll see a new menu at the top of the page, with several options available.

    Select the products you want to edit at once

    How it works:

    • Category. You can select up to three categories. Check boxes can have three different settings:
      1. Empty Check Box: none of the selected products is linked to that collections. If you mark the item’s check box and click on “Apply”, the item will be added to that collection.
      2. Marked Check Box: all selected items are already linked to the collection. Clearing the tick box you will remove them from the collection.
      3. Green colored Check Box: Just some of the items you selected are linked to the collection. The first click on the check box will remove the items from the collection, the second one will add all the items to the collection.
    • Collections and Tags. You can associate the selected items to one or more already existing Collection or Tags (here a quick tutorial about Collections).

    mass edit tool for collections of products

    • Discount. With this feature you can apply the same percentage of discount to all your items (here a tutorial about discount).
    • Shipping. Clicking on “Shipping” you can select from the drop-down menu an existing Shipping Profile to associate to the items. (Here, how to create a shipping profile)
    • Visibility. You can decide to hide temporary items in your store and then bring them back to visibility.
    • Delete. Hey, wait a minute! Are you sure you want to delete items from your store? (We remind you that it is not possible to delete items that have been ordered.)

    Easy, isn’t it? :)

  • Orders, Payment options, PayPal 6 February 2012 francesca

    Choose Paypal is a safe and fast way for your transactions on Blomming (HERE is the tutorial to set up Paypal as a payment method in your shop).

    Furthermore now to pay with Paypal is even easier for you buyers: they no longer have to leave the Facebook page in which you have the Shop! The whole process Cart – Checkout – Confirmation – Payment takes place more easily and quickly, and the buyer can return immediately to see the products again, or to visit other pages. This is thanks to a partnership with PayPal where, you know, millions of people in the world have an online account. If you are a seller, to accept payments with this system is extremely useful to stimulate sales. And if you are a buyer you can shop safely just in a few clicks.

    In both cases, what are you waiting, open an account now!

    Let’s see what happens if you make a purchase in a Blomming shop on Facebook.
