Features on Kush.com YOU should be Using
Here’s some of the features we think are important for both Buyers & Sellers to utilize and an overview of how they work:
Click here for a General How It Works Overview
For Sellers: Buyer Prospecting
At the top of kush.com you’ll find an option for ‘Prospecting’. Buyer Prospecting is an easy way for sellers to be proactive, and seek out fitting buyers without waiting for an offer.
Currently Premium Members have the ability to contact 10 buyers per month with the Prospecting tool. Basically, you’ll be able to search through our database of thousands of buyers, to find one that might be a fitting buyer for your products;
You’ll be able to see some basic info about the Buyers History on kush.com, including competed deals, cancelled deals, and the product categories that they’ve interacted with. From there you’ll have the opportunity to reach out to 10 buyers a month with your contact info and a short pitch.
There’s also a Tracker in the top right corner that shows how many contacts you have left this month (resets on the billing date of your Premium Membership)
For Buyers: Sort & Filter Your Searches
Want a quick response time, and some fresh products?? One of the most effective tools a buyer can use on kush.com while searching the products pages is the Sort function at the top of the page.
Once you’ve picked a general category, click where it says ‘Score’ to change how the page is sorted. By Default it’s sorted by a score algorithm that calculates a products score by how many sales it’s successfully completed and other analytics like Views & Clicks.
Change the Sort to Show the lowest prices first if you’re looking for a deal OR sort to Last Updated to see the most recently updated products and get the best response time from a seller that’s been on the site regularly.
For Buyers: Shop a Brands Storefront For Multiple Products
Find a brand you love? Want to try multiple products from the same seller? Find them on the Brands page and you’ll be able to add multiple products to the same cart for easy checkout!
For Sellers: Kush.com Order Process (Marking deals Paid & Delivered)
As a seller you can see all of the sales you’ve made on Orders Received page (even Storefront orders). Until the new Shipping Integrations are finished this fall, you will need to mark deals as ‘Delivered’ once an order is complete. Additionally, if you don’t have DirectPay enabled (or the buyer didn’t pay online) you will want to mark the deals ‘Paid’ once the payment is complete. By keeping your deals up to date, you’ll always be able to login and see the exact status of any open deals.
Didn’t update your deals? Don’t Worry! Even if you forget to mark deals complete an admin from kush will be checking in on all marketplace deals to make sure they go smoothly. Simply answer the check-in messages that get sent every week and we’ll update the deal status from our end if needed, or assume the deal is cancelled if we don’t hear back.
For Sellers: Hit the Repost All Button Often
Though the Age of listings don’t get shown on the general Products pages, it is still important to hit the Repost All button from the My Products page (top right) as often as possible!
Keeping your products with a fresh posting date will help them stay to the top of products pages when users sort for Last Updated or when the default Score system is used to sort the pages.
