They’ve bought the product and should have access to it.
With Sellfy you get a 14-day trial before you have to pay for your account. It isn’t a free service. You must pay for using their server. Their basic tier option is $29 per month. From here you’d have to pay $79 or more to upgrade further. This is harmful to new businesses as they simply can’t afford the costs straight up.
Above, you can see the various pricing options. These prices are per month, however you can pay annually or every two years which will decrease the cost overall, but it is an incredibly strong hit. Perhaps large businesses could manage this, but for smaller, independent brands, it just isn’t achievable. A lot of creators struggle to start with.
They require help with marketing their products which they aren’t getting when they’re having to pay out money they haven’t yet earned. Starting out is always difficult.
