As an online merchant, you understand the hassles of ecommerce can be costly and take up a lot of time. You often spend a great deal of time finding quality wholesalers, managing up-front expenses, forecasting production, handling fulfillment, providing customer service… and that’s only the start of the list. The logistics and financial responsibilities alone can quickly become overwhelming.

That’s where GearLaunch comes in with our full service platform. Beyond enabling merchants to set up their own branded storefronts, GearLaunch removes the headaches with production, packaging, shipping, and customer operations by including everything with our platform.

Because there is no inventory, no up-front costs, and no risk, merchants who partner with GearLaunch have the time and resources to grow their brands and scale their businesses.

Even with GearLaunch streamlining the entire ecommerce chain for you, running your own business will require serious dedication. That is why many sellers choose to add team members to their storefronts for various tasks. Depending on their role, GearLaunch allows you to adjust permissions for each team member.

Admins have full access and can change role permissions for other team members.

Managers have partial access to all store tabs except Payouts or Store Settings.

Launchers have limited access to Campaigns and existing Promotions. Launchers cannot access the Dashboard, Payouts, or Store Settings tabs, and cannot create new Promotions. All campaign profits are hidden, even on individual campaign pages or launch pages.

Here is how to use these roles:

  1. From your Dashboard, click “Store Settings.”
  2. Locate the “Team” box in the right corner and click “Add team member.” Enter your team member’s email address, and choose the appropriate role from the drop down box.
  3. Click “Save” once you’re done. Repeat these steps for all the members on your team.

Now that you are ready to start selling, it’s time to start thinking about marketing. check out our resources page to get you started with everything from email to social media.
