What happens when I'm accepted?

We are thrilled to have you as a seller on SLM! Once you have been accepted, you will receive an email with a link to the onboarding process. 

 

Once we have all your required information, our team will build your initial store.

As soon as your store is ready, we’ll send you an email so you can take the time to explore your shop! Depending on the size and complexity of your catalog this process can take up to two weeks. 

How do I upload my first catalog?

Congratulations on your acceptance to SLM! Now it's time to get upload your products to your seller's portal for review and selection. 

 

Please help your account manager by preparing the following information:

  1. A line sheet of your products containing pertinent information:

  • Product name

  • Product description

  • Product SKU

  • Weight & Dimensions

  • Quantity - We recommend that you do not mix your SLM inventory with those selling on other platforms.

  • Retail price

 

   2. Your high-resolution product photography. We like to receive this content through cloud-based folders such as       

      Google Drive.  

  • Picture files must be in JPEG format (not HTML)

 

   3. Your store and return policy.

 

   4. Any lifestyle photography you have for your brand. Our Design Team will select the best images to feature on our

      site, and even our Instagram account.

 

Our team will do the rest! Barring holidays and other high-volume times, you can expect your products to be uploaded to your profile within 5 to 7 business days.

Can I make changes to my shop before it's activated?

SLM does not allow sellers to make any changes to their store or profile. However, you can make changes to your product listings directly in you seller's account.
