How to create a Sellfy account

Note: All accounts have to go through the email verification process. If you haven't received a verification email, you can send out a new one in your Account Settings by clicking Resend verification next to the email entry field. If the email still doesn't arrive in your inbox, make sure you've entered your email address correctly and check the spam folders, too.

To create a Sellfy account, follow the steps below:

  1. Click Start free trial on Sellfy.com
  2. Verify your email address by clicking Verify my email address in the email you received from us
  3. After or during the free 14-day trial, choose a Subscription plan to activate the checkout and start selling your products

Important! During your 14-day free trial you can set up a store, upload your products and test out Sellfy's features. The checkout option will remain inactive during the trial period and is only activated once you've upgraded.


How to add information about your store

To add and/or edit information about your store, follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to your Sellfy account
  2. Navigate to Store Settings → General settings

How to add payment methods

Note: Before you can start selling, you need to make sure you have a fully functioning PayPal and/or Stripe account and integrate them into your Sellfy account. Your customers will only be able to purchase products from you if you're able to receive payments using either of the two payment methods.

  1. Log in to your Sellfy account
  2. Navigate to Store Settings → Payment Settings
  3. Select your primary account currency
  4. Switch on the toggle and enter your PayPal email address to add PayPal as a payment option
  5. To offer card payments, use Stripe Connect
