Check it out!!!
More on the way.
Some of you might be seeing listings in your RankUp feed and when you click on them the product listing is expired.
You might be tempted to be frustrated. Dont be. Message the seller.
Often the seller has access to this distribution channel so you can set up an economy to feed your market(s). Its always a good idea to follow up and say hi :}
WOW what an exciting weekend!!! So much activity!!!
Remember, use the search bar to find all the product requests. Any listing in red highlights is an opportunity for a verified buyer to make a sale.
So this is the best way to maximize your listings.
1. Get verified. Go to your accounts section and select a Tier. It sucks being excited about pricing but not being verified so your options are restricted. Submit your business information so you can play.
2. Go to your profile section and add (or delete) the products you buy or sell. For more exposure, be very specific with the product tags you list as what you buy and sell. You gain (or lose) points based on your activity on Toadlane.
3. See how it changes your rank up feed? Pretty cool eh?
Its all community generated.
Wanna make some sales? Here's a real easy way. Search for "iPhone" on Toadlane, anything highlighted in red is someone that wants to buy. If the buyer is already verified and you have logged into your accounts section and been verified you can make a transaction happen ASAP!
There's people in our community that want to buy wholesale electronics right now. Lets make some money!
The reason we require accounts to be verified is because our underwriters need to know upfront, that you have a real business...real information and its the same process for everyone. So thats comforting. Imagine you are buying from someone new that says that they have great pricing and its a wholesale opportunity. You can potentially make a lot of money, so you get excited and you want to make a move. Dont you want to make sure that you are working with a credible business?
Thats why we have our verification process. You would not believe the amount of people that take that requirement personal. Now on the flip side, if your verified and requesting to buy something....verified buyer and verified seller...BOOM. DONE. Assuming of course the stock is available, we have our updated three day shipping policy...so it just enables things to happen quickly. Refresh the screen if you cant see the image.
So when Toadlane asks you go to your accounts section select a verification level you are really taking our relationship to the next level. We are becoming really good friends. It means our underwriters trust you. It means that you went through the same process every other verified member in the community has gone through.
Here are the benefits:
1. When you create product requests and use the community generated product tags that notify sellers...they can place an offer that you can make an order immedaitely.
2. You can list items for sale or send your catalogue to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will list your entire catalogue for ya quickly. Millions of dollars of inventory you can list for sale.
3. When a verified seller makes an offer and the verified buyer accepts it, they can securely get the deal initiated immediately. You dont have to get excited and not be able to do anything about it because you will have to wait atleast a few hours to get verified. Sometimes it super fast, but would never assume that.
4. We offer the lowest fees and the most value online, its not even close and thats why verification is so important.
The progam is pretty straight forward. We only sell what we have in stock, you have to start with purchasing two units. I know we have some huge buyers on the site but this is for people that want access to the industry but arent really sure where to start building trust. After you recieve the shipment for the two units then you can make larger orders with us.
Start small and lets build together.
Toadane has the right to fulfill, refund, or reject any order placed on the site if a tracking number is not placed within THREE days of the funds in escrow.
This is an updated policy and applies to any pending orders or future orders on the site.
I am very excited to announce that one of my old partners that I used to work with years ago are forming back together to launch a very special program soon. It involves fulfilling orders with stock on hand out of one of our distribution centers. Excited about that but even more excited about this updated policy.
We continue to improve and this policy will continue to be updated. Everything should grow from a relationship of trust and execution.
I was just reading about the Mumbai floods and have been following the Houston flood, I am so glad these floods are getting the support and attention they deserve. I look forward to seeing how we can help provide things that these organizations need to help with this massive disastor.
Alright, confession. I just realized I havent slept for a day. but its okay because our whole team is so excited to launch this request functionality. Its super simple. Just log into toadlane, request exactly what you want and the price you are looking for.
Make sure you add product tags, the more product tags you add the better because that is how relevant sellers are notified.
We worked real hard to make it real simple for you.
Everyday I wake up and before I go to sleep I do the exact samething. And the thing about it is, it calms me down. It helps keep me sane....and its a great way to feel like your,making progress on whatever part of the fibonacci spiral you are in. It also is a great way to figure out the direction of your habits and if they need to be improved to achieve more of what you want etc its a lot of things.
So last night after I finished writing my blog post, I noticed Richard Branson finished his Virgin post not too long after I posted mine. I started reading and thinking to myself...wow that is literally Richard Branson writing a post.....will that be me in 30 years? I remember the first time I read about Richard Branson. I was in Hyderabad, India at the time at my friend Hari's house. If you have not been to India i would strongly suggest you go. Indian food in India is one of the true joys of life. The chicken biryani in india is the best. my great grandfather is from calcutta and i was fortunate to live in the south but also travel up north. I would argue there are certain things like chicken tikka thare way better up north but southern indian chicken biryani......nothing like it.
back to Branson lol........so Im sitting in india, its super fricken hot and Im hungry, instead of food he offered me one of the most entertaining and educational reads ever. I sat down and read his entire autobiography in one read. It felt like my soul needed the read, and my friend gave me the book as if he anticipated my reaction would be just as it was. I thoroughly enjoy Richard Bransons vibration. He's creative, he does what he wants, and during his young years he was a fricken rockstar. He adds great value to the planet and he isnt just some boring rich bloke. I would stronlgy strongly suggest you check out his stuff.
Soooo..........writing posts on the Toad blog just as I am now? In 30 years? I would think that 30 years from now blog posts are gonna be way cooler than just words.
Anyhoo, it has been a fantastic weekend....and I am so so so excited to share these updates with you, because we obsesses about your happiness over here. :}
