Merchant Newsletter – July 10, 2013

Dear Merchants,

I hope everyone had a great holiday last week! It’s hard to believe we are getting deep into July already. Thanks to all for making the most of your OpenSky Marketplace experience! Here are some updates for this week:


  • Add our NEW Follow Badge – Now you can add an OpenSky Follow badge to your website or blog.
      • What is it? We’ve customized an OpenSky Follow badge for you to post directly onto your own website, blog and email!

    • How does it work? All you need to do is log into your Merchant Toolkit and click “Followers.” Simply scroll down to “Badges and More.” Just click “Copy” and the link is ready for you to paste on your website, blog or email signature!
    • And after they click it? They’ll be taken directly to your storefront on OpenSky and if they aren’t already a member, they can quickly sign up and become one of your valuable Invited Followers. If they’re already a member, they can still show you support be by following you and loving your products
  • Add an Exclusive Product – It’s a simple, easy and effective way to get your brand noticed on OpenSky
    • Nowhere Else: OpenSky members love to find great products that they can’t get anywhere else. It’s an immediate attention grabber!
    • Be creative: Whether it’s a special color way, gift set, or new design- there are limitless options for branding a product as Exclusive, and many of our merchants are already taking advantage of this opportunity. Check these out:
    • YasuJutaro Jewelry
    • Mason Jar Cookie Company
    • Call it Out: Make sure everyone knows which products are exclusive. Be sure to include “OpenSky Exclusive” in the product name
