How to create your Store

This guide will help you get started with the uksy Marketplace. We will walk you through each step and explain what they mean.

Choosing A Plan

The first thing you will need to do is head to the Vendor Membership page.
On this page you will see three different plans

  • Free
  • uksy+ Monthly
  • uksy+ Yearly

The Free plan is perfect to quickly get your Store online and get your first sales.

The Free plan allows you to create and sell unlimited products with just a 5% commission on each item sold.

There’s no other fees involved. We don’t charge listing fees, transaction fees or final sale fees.

uksy+ Monthly is our paid plan and comes with all the features of the Free plan but we don’t take any commission on your sales. So for £5/Month you get 100% of your sales. We think this plan is perfect if you’re already an established seller or expecting to sell more than 5/10 items.

uksy+ Yearly is uksy+ but it’s paid for in one transaction meaning you can save £10 on the plan for the whole year.

Once you’ve chosen your plan you will be asked to enter your details.

  • Email (If you have a business email, use this)
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Store Name (The name you’d like to appear on your Store Page)
  • Password

Once you’ve entered your details you can proceed to the next page.

The next page will give you an overview of the plan you have selected, if you’re happy you can proceed to the next page.
