Vendor FAQ

Do you have a business?  Are you looking to generate more sales?  Why not consider adding a great offer here on Happy Mail Deals?

If you have a product you would like to get in the hands of some new and existing customers at a wonderful “deal” price – you can feature your business here!  It can be a wonderful way to introduce your business’ products and services to new customers or offer a special deal to customers who have been following you and your business for a while.  You might consider offering deals if you find yourself with extra inventory or want to launch a new product.  For a minimal fee you can feature as many offers as you like.  Deals will run for 3 days at a time (if you schedule your deal to start at 9:00 am ET on Sunday it will end at 9:00 am ET on Wednesday).

Advertising is also available for reasonable monthly rates.  Packages available for 3, 6 or 12 months as well. *More information available at the bottom of the page as well as links to purchase your ad.

How do I sign up to be a vendor?

Simply click the Sign Up button in the upper right corner and select “I am a seller”.  You can sign up as both a customer and a vendor.

How do I set up deals?

When a new vendor registers on Happy Mail Deals a welcome email is sent with step-by-step instructions on how to set up your first deal.

How do the fees work on Happy Mail Deals?

There are no listing fees.  Happy Mail Deals receives a portion of your sales (product / services only – all postage fees are yours) to cover maintaining the site and advertising.  The split is 75/25 with the vendor keeping 75% of their products which is above the norm for other deal sites.

How do I know if I have orders to process?

The system will send you an email when an item sells.  You must ensure your email address is up-to-date at all times.  All vendors will also have access to the vendor dashboard which will provide reports and information regarding your sales.

How does the shipping work?

Just like having your own website, selling on Etsy or Facebook,  each vendor will ship directly to his/her customers.  This allows you to include thank you notes and coupons to your own shops.

Who pays for shipping?

Each vendor sets their own shipping fees.  You can set up a default rate, and then you can customize it per deal if necessary.  The shipping is charged to the customer at the time of purchase.  Vendors receive 100% of shipping fees.

When should orders be shipped?

When setting up your deal you can indicate in the description if orders will be shipped immediately, multiple times throughout the deal or within a specified number of days after the deal ends.  It is recommended that shipping take place no more than 5-7 business days after the close of the deal.

How and when do vendors get paid?

How do I request a withdrawal?

On the vendor dashboard click “withdraw.”   There is a minimum withdrawal of $25.00.

How are the deals advertised?

Happy Mail Deals will advertise on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as well as via newsletter subscriptions.

How do I offer services at my location instead of a shippable product?

If you have a local shop you may sell discounted certificates to use toward services and/or products at your location.  When listing these items ensure your description is thorough and explicitly explains any expiration dates or requirements for using the certificate.  For example, if you sell a certificate for a massage or facial at your location make sure you indicate the specific service and retail value as well as what is included in the service and any special instructions for booking an appointment using the certificate.
