Selz is a platform that allows business owners to create online stores, sell from live websites, and even promote and sell products through available social media outlets.

Selz allows their clients to try out their product through their free trial options prior to making any final decisions on their online store. However, Selz does charge transaction fees each time a product is sold unless you are on the Pro plan, which has no transaction fees.

The platform is ideal for those who have limited to no coding experience, but would like a professional and operational online store.

The Good

  • Integration
  • Functionality
  • No Maximum Tier Range
  • 24/7 Customer Service Through Live Chat
  • Marketing Features

Integration 

You can link your Selz account to an online store you've set up with Wix, Wordpress or other website builder. You can also add embedded buttons and widgets so customers can purchase through those sites. Because of this, potential customers will be able to purchase without having to leave your site. 

Another impressive feature is the ability to sell directly from social media pages. With these features, you can run a fully functioning Facebook store and handle the sales directly from the Selz dashboard. 

There is also the option to create a new store from scratch if you don't have an existing platform to build on. 

Functionality

Following the free trial (which does limit some capabilities), business owners will find that it is simple and straightforward to build out their own online store. Coding and integration knowledge is not at all required as Selz provides professional templates to use.

Creating a product is quick. It is also easy to add categories and variants, set up a search engine friendly meta description, page title, and URL. Lastly, there is no limit to how many products an online store can feature.

With a drag and drop store builder, it's never been easier to design the store you want. It provides all the features you need to craft the perfect digital store, and portray the design aspect and aesthetic which captures your business. 

It also boasts many templates and professional-looking website themes, all of which are free. After you select the template, you can personalize and customize it further to match your style. You can customize the layout, colors, fonts, and images. 

The product variants include size, color and weight. You can customize further if you have unique products. 

Each store includes a free SSL certificate. You receive the certificate for each one of your web pages, which really helps build credibility and trust with your customers. 

There's also an option for a custom domain name, which you can register through them or import one of your own. This helps promote your brand. 

No Maximum Tier Range

Selz does not have a maximum tier range, making their service available to a wide range of businesses.

24/7 Customer Service Through Live Chat

Selz offers a 24/7 live chat feature. This allows customers to book a set-up session with a Selz team member and provides quick, easy answers to questions. Their website also includes a help center with answers to common questions. This center covers topics ranging from payments to troubleshooting. Selz also sends emails with helpful links and support articles on the basics of setting up a store.

Marketing Features

Within Selz e-commerce software, it offers other tools to help with your e-commerce business, such as: Google Analytics, Mailchimp campaign monitor, credit card processing, unlimited storage, and other small business features. You can also have a custom domain, custom receipts, and other customization options. 

It also boasts an email marketing service which is designed to target potential customers, as well as maintain existing customers. These features simplify the process for merchants or users who want to start selling, but don't know where to begin. They are designed to work for any business, sales or services. 

Selz is confident in their software, which is one of the reasons they allow business owners to test out their product prior to making them purchase it. They offer a 14-day free trial.

The Bad

  • Price/Transaction Fees

Price/Transaction Fees

Following the free trial, business owners have the option to get on a paid monthly plan to keep all of the features that were included in the trial. While there is a free store option (limited to 5 products) if business owners want to maximize their site's functionality, they will have to pay $12.99-$26.99 for their store per month. On top of charging for the template/store features, Selz charges 0-2 percent on transactions depending on the type monthly plan.

The Bottom Line

Those business owners looking to create a professional online store without extensive knowledge or experience will likely benefit from the Selz platform. Their straightforward and step-by-step build out process allows even the most inexperienced person to create stunning and functional online stores. While there are pricing and other limitations to be aware of, Selz is worth testing out.

I have been using Wx for several years and decided to shift when an update got my site upside down, too many plugins to work with without finding the way to get the result I wanted. The new blog system doesn't allow importing old posts, impossible to use... And, the worst part, the customer service would take one or two days to reply, often with answers out of topic or "I don't understand your question"... I tried Selz as they have a 14 days trail, and my life changed. I managed to do a satisfying site over the weekend, and the customer service is online all the time, even on Sundays, so I got my problems solved withing minutes as there has always been someone to answer. I'm only putting 8 so far because I haven't used Selz much, but so far so good!

I find it easy to use. It does what I need. And also very quick and reliable support. I love how they manage to reply very fast in their chat support. Some small details could be better though, like some parts of my follow up mailings to my own customers are impossible to translate in my own language for the time being. But they are working in it, they told me. Overall very good price to quality ratio.
