So You Made Your First Sale — Now What?

The notification that you’ve made your first sale can bring on a wave of emotions — excitement, pride, and yes, even anxiety — just ask any shop owner in Kidizen! After you’ve thrown your celebratory confetti, however, it’s time to take a deep breath and get down to business. Asking yourself “Now what?!” now that you’ve sold a listing or two? These tips are for you.

Verify Your Items
Cross-check the items in the order with your inventory, making sure the purchased pieces match the size and condition of your listing. 

Package It Up
Placing the verified items in their packaging as soon as possible guarantees they won’t get mixed up with the other orders; we recommend two layers of bagging in case your outside mailer gets damaged in transit. 

Grab a Shipping Label
This can be done right from the order screen in your Kidizen app.

1.  Go to Me > Orders > Sales
2.  Tap on the order
3.  Tap on Purchase Shipping Label

Print and Place Your Label
Like packaging items as soon as they’re ready, placing your label on the correct mailer (instead of setting it aside or doing it at the post office) helps minimize the chance of paperwork getting lost or mixed up. 

Schedule Your Pick Up
Or drop it off at any USPS location — any packages under 16 ounces can be placed in a blue bin.

Do a Happy Dance
You’ve successfully sold, packaged, and shipped your first order. A happy dance is definitely required!
