start selling your coral frags
1. frag your corals!
If you have been into reefing for a while and your corals are thriving and growing out in your tank, what´s better than making some nice frags and sharing them with other reefing enthusiasts?
2. setup a seller account
In order to sell your coral on the collective you need to register to become a Seller
Once your store is approved, you will get access to your Seller Dashboard. This is a simple way to create your own store where you can set up your details, a logo, shipping and/or pick-up options, and payment methods (which is done through PayPal).
3. create an item
With a Seller account you can now create an item to sell!
Upload some nice WYSIWYG photos of your frags and put in a detailed description about the frag itself, it’s growing conditions, the mother colony, history etc.
4. shipping and pick up
On the Coral Collective you have the option to choose either local pick-up, shipping, or both.
You can change these settings at any time, so if you want to start with local pick-up only and then progress to shipping later that is ok!
If you are planning to ship corals, good packaging and timely delivery is important. No one wants to experience the heartbreak of corals arriving dead.
There are a number of supplies you will need to be able to package and ship effectively. We have collated a list of places that supply the following for our Sellers:
5. get your first order
Congratulations! A customer placed an order for your frags.
You will receive an order email with the details. The customer will pay directly into your PayPal account, and the Coral Collective will receive commission automatically.
In order to keep start-up costs for our Sellers as low as possible there aren't any set-up fees for joining or creating your store on the Coral Collective.
Instead, there is a commission of 15% on each sale, which goes towards maintaining the Coral Collective marketplace, and also to donate to reef-saving projects and organisations, such as the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.
6. send your frags
Book in the courier pick up, package up your corals (with care!), print your shipping label, and let your customer know the shipping tracking number.
Great job! You now have a happy customer enjoying your amazing frags, you joined a community and got in touch with other reefing enthusiasts, and also helped to protect our natural reefs for future coral nerds!
