Simple setup, powerful sales
Once you create an account you can start selling products on ArchiPal in a matter of minutes.
With ArchiPal, you’re not limited to selling just digital downloads either. You can sell rentals, physical products, pre-orders, membership products that charge recurring fees, and even full-fledged software using license keys.
Customers can buy directly on a single product’s page, or on your Seller Profile page, where they can buy multiple (or all!) of your products at once.
And, as mentioned before, even if you don’t have products to sell, you can use the Audience feature to build a mailing list and generate enthusiasm for your work. When you’re ready to get selling, just publish your product, send out a link to the world, and wait for the sales to roll in.
GROW BEYOND YOUR CORE AUDIENCE WITH DISCOVER
With Discover ArchiPal, we help you grow your current audience, so you can find more people who care about you and your work (and maybe even find your next superfan). Discover works by recommending your products to prospective customers that browse ArchiPal at discover.ArchiPal.io.
Products purchased via Discover will be subject to an additional 2% fee over our usual fee. This applies even if the customer has purchased from you before. If they buy a product from you through the ArchiPal Discover search, or through a receipt link, or via the ArchiPal Library, or through any kind of referral aspect of the Discover feature, their purchase will be taxed the Discover fees.
Understanding your customers
We strongly believe a purchase on ArchiPal is the start of a relationship, not the end of one. When you sell a product on ArchiPal, you’ll be able to access your customer’s email address, as well as where they purchased from. Get yourself an example customer sales CSV here.
We make it easy for you to issue refunds, send updates to your audience, create automated email workflows, offer discount codes, and more. You can read more about interacting with your customers here.
The security of our creators and our customers is our number one priority. All credit card information is processed in a PCI-compliant environment that was certified by an independent auditor.
Every purchase on ArchiPal takes place on an encrypted HTTP Secure connection. We will only store sensitive information if a customer creates an account – and only to make future purchases a snap.
Your customers’ download links are also secure. The download links expire after one use, and require verification before another download happens. We tag customers’ computers to make sure that they only have to verify their identity if they are on a different computer than the one they bought the product with. We offer PDF Stamping feature as standard.
