Steps to set-up your Booth Bonanza:-

  1. Login to Bonanza.com
  2. Click on the button to Sell on Bonanza, then click the green button to "Start Selling Now."  
  3. Click the green button to "Open your Booth".
  4. Set your booth title, username, contact email and password*.  
  5. Connect your PayPal account to receive payment from buyers. Set your return policy, and enter your personal identification information.
  6. Enter your credit card information to validate your identity and finalize setup.

 

Buyers can submit an offer to sellers and they have the option to accept or deny that offer. If there is a minimum price you are willing to accept, you can set an "Instant offer price" via the item listing page or batch editor so that Bonanza automatically accepts any offers higher than the indicated price, allowing the buyer to checkout immediately without having to wait for your approval.

There are some distinctive features to sell your products on Bonanza are as follows:

a. Google Integration

b. Background Burner

c. Product Sync

d. Top-Rated Support

e. Products out the Door

f. Exclusive Connections

If you'd like to delete items from your booth, you have two choices:

  • If you have just a few items, you can visit your "Selling > Add or edit items" page and click the "More" link on the toolbar above the item you want to delete. Then click the "Delete Listing" link from the menu that appears (see above) .

  • If you've got a lot of items you want to delete at once, you can use the batch editor to do this by going to the  "Selling > Batch edit items" page. You can then select multiple rows of items, select the "delete" option in the top area. Click the "Apply changes" button and all selected items will be deleted.

Through the following steps you can edit an Item in Bonanza:

  • You can access the edit item page by hovering your mouse over the "Selling" link in the upper left corner of any page then selecting "Add or edit items" from the drop down.

  • Once you're on the "Add or edit items" page, simply click the "Edit" link on the tool menu that shows above each item.

  • Clicking the "Add a new Item" button will take you to a blank New Item Form, or "edit item" page, to put in your product information

  • There are many ways to help buyers find your items amongst the millions of items that are available online. Item categories ("Collectibles," "Video Games," etc.) are a great start, but often times a category alone cannot capture all of the details that buyers will want to know when they're searching for an item.

  • For example, say you're searching for a necklace for your niece. You would start by browsing to the "Jewelry & Watches -> Fashion Jewelry" category, but once you were there, you would be presented with green necklaces, red necklaces, gold necklaces, platinum necklaces, etc.

  • Item traits are a way for buyers to dig deeper within a given category. So in the hypothetical scenario above, the buyer might create a search filter so they see only items with a ruby gemstone and a silver band.

  1. Free setup and listing

  2. Low transaction fees

  3. Free advertising until your item sells

Return Policy Management has options to manage the setting for the return orders.

Through these setting, you can manage days and shipping cost of return order.

There are some basic factors to increase your sales on Bonanza are:

Item Title, Product images, Item Category, Condition and traits, Item barcode(UPC/ISBN etc.).

Your products are not able to upload on Bonanza because there must be missing Title(more than 80 words), Inventory, Product Type, Category. You in this case you have to complete the Profiling for your products.

There are four steps to complete the onboarding process of Bonanza Marketplace Integration App.

Variant Products:-Variants are the products with different attributes i.e. size, color and material.

Yes, you can manage order from the app without managing the products, you have Disable- Auto Product Sync in “Settings”.

Threshold Limit is the quantity, when the inventory matches with the threshold value, the seller will not get orders for the same product.

Products will not get uploaded for the following reason:

  1. Duplicate Title.

  2. Title with more than 80 characters.

  3. Booth not Active.

According to Bonanza rules Title of any product, must not exceed 80 characters.

Or the title with more than 80 characters will be displayed up to the limit.

Check for the Login credentials or your account may be suspended by Bonanza because of some reason. In this case you have to contact Bonanza.

  4. Profile Not Set: You have to Update or Add new profile to the products according to your Shopify Store.

  5. Not Uploaded Products: Products which are not uploaded on Bonanza.

Item Analysis is the process that is used to update the Status of a Product on the Bonanza Integration App. To fetch the updated status of the Product from Bonanza we do Item Analysis which will Analyze all the products available on the bonanza booth and their Status then Compare that information and Status with the available product on the App then update the status of the product on App 

The steps to perform Item Analysis is "Home >> On top>> Bonanza Booth analysis.". As a suggestion, I would suggest that whenever you log in to the App you perform Item Analysis so that you see the updated status of the products on the App.
