Next, fill out the application form and send it too us, if it's approved by us and your college your product will appear on the store ASAP and we'll send an email to you so you can get paid as the orders come in.

Q: Do I have to start a business to use Student Shop or can I sell one off products?

A: While Student Shop provides the support for starting your own business, it works just as well for selling one off items like old clothes, shoes, old textbooks or anything you don't need anymore. 

Q: What happens if my application gets rejected? 

A: If your application gets rejected, it could be due to the nature of what you're selling or because of restrictions at your college. We will make sure to tell you the reason why your application has been rejected so you can make changes or rethink the idea. If you get 3 rejected applications, you will get a temporary suspension from the making applications. 

Q: I want to sell on Student Shop but I don't want other students knowing it's me. What can I do?

A: While you will have to tell us your name, your name or contact information won't appear anywhere on our site so you can be completely anonymous. If a buyer has an issue with a product or just a question they can email us and we will contact you on their behalf so there's no need to worry.
