So you're interested in selling in the 3WW Parts Shop? Great! Here are a few things you might be wondering about before signing up -
So, here are a couple compelling reasons you should consider:
If you've sold on other websites before, or a big name auction site that begins with an E and ends up with a Y, you can definitely list products here. Our seller listing interface is totally mobile compatible, you can list items from your cell phone or tablet if you wanted to. The product fields are a series of text entry fields, drop-down boxes with designated answers, and a drag and drop photo upload process. It really does not get a whole lot easier! In addition, all new products are qued and reviewed personally to see if they might be able to fit in multiple categories, and review your description - you'll have a free second set of eyes on every product listing. See the example screenshot below of part of the product listing page:

We've got a pretty wide array of categories and places to put items, but feel free to give us a shout and discuss what your needs are and we will talk about where it can go or possibly creating a new category. If the namesake didn't make it clear, we're looking for 3wheeler specific parts and products. For our used section, that can be stuff you've had laying around in your garage or shop collecting dust. Maybe your a dealer for quality aftermarket components that fit and have a use on a vast array of different three-wheelers, perhaps you're offering a service that other trike riders would find value in. Perhaps you're like most of us and found necessity to be the mother of all invention, and just figured you'd make everyone elses lives a little bit easier too with your solution to a discontinued component. Or maybe you've just found a way to do something better. We'd love to have you here.
So here is where the rubber meets the road. There are no membership fees. No product listing fees. No residual or monthly costs for adding your products to the shop. You are only charged when your product sells. The fee is 6% of your total received payment. This model puts zero overhead on you as the low volume manufacturer or reselling vendor, and its still considerably cheaper than pretty much every other online shopping portal you'll encounter.
The site is designed exclusively around the PayPal payment platform. It uses a unique and relatively new checkout process PayPal introduced call "Adaptive Payments". Adaptive payments allows one checkout from a customer to split the payment to several different receiving vendors. Until just a few years ago, this technology did not exist - all customers would have had to provide individual payment and checkout data to the seller for each specific item they were buying. That's why this "group marketplace" concept has not really been seen very much around the internet and certainly not in our little niche before!
The above is an example of the system and is not a complete description of the fee system required. Graphic compliments of PayPal.
In a nutshell, the customers add the products they want to their cart, they checkout. You get paid instantly - an order confirmation email is sent to you and any other sellers, as well as the customer. That's it. No net 30 terms or waiting for a payout from a middleman. It sells, you're paid instantly via PayPal, you ship. That simple.
