Selling on our website is EASY, QUICK GETTING STARTED, and WE HOPE, IN TIME, TO BE VERY PROFITABLE FOR OUR LOCAL MERCHANTS!
YOU BRING THE MERCHANDISE�. WE WILL LOOK FOR THOSE NEW CUSTOMERS!
Here is the Deal�
THE COST of selling items at shopnorcal.com is 10% of the purchase price plus PayPal fees, AFTER the money is collected for the sale of the item.
We will promote our new online marketplace with:
� A full color �catalogue ad� in every edition of 10,000+ magazines (Similar to a page in the �Airline Catalogue� you might see on a plane.) The better the item and value, the better the chance it has of getting pictured in our promotional ads in the magazine.
� We will promote shopnorcal.com on our website. The online store is available at mountainvalleyliving.com, our ever so popular website, and now, also at our new website which we will be promoting, shopnorcal.com. The site is also accessible at mountainvalleylivingmagazine.com.
Our website gets a ton of traffic, and it will be a click away from this marketplace featuring some really cool items in Nor Cal. We have had as many as 425,000 hits in a single month. What do you have to offer?
There is NO UP FRONT COST to list items in the shopnorcal.com marketplace.
IT IS VITAL to all the sellers that EVERYONE agrees to ship products in a timely manner, and to provide excellent customer service. WE, AS A GROUP REPRESENTING NORTHERN CA, want to receive HIGH RATINGS FOR CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. In keeping with the theme of the site, Mountain Valley Living reserves the right to refuse items. We will accept quality merchandise from established businesses and artists. We are seeking cool and interesting stuff for shop Nor Cal to make the site appealing to buyers who enjoy visiting the north-state.
