About CommentSold's Free Trial
CommentSold offers a 30-day free trial that allows shops to explore our product features and begin social and live selling without risk. During a trial, shops have access to all features of the plan the shop selected.
To make the most of your trial, we recommend following these steps for your initial setup:
|No.||Action||How it Benefits Your Shop|
|1||Set your monthly sales goal.||If you know your goal, you're more likely to reach it. Add your monthly sales goal on the top-right side of your CommentSold dashboard and see where you are each day.|
|2||Set up your shop details.||Basic details like your shop name, URL, time zone, and business address impact settings throughout CommentSold. Getting these out of the way gets you headed in the right direction.|
|3||Connect your Facebook account.||Once you've connected your Facebook page and/or group, you can start posting items for sale and streaming live sales.|
|4||Set up a payment method.||You'll need at least one payment gateway enabled in order to accept payments from your customers.|
|5||Configure shipping settings.||Set your shipping preferences and costs so you can start fulfilling orders. Learn about our shipping integrations here.|
|6||Set up sales taxes.||We've partnered with Avalara, which automatically calculates sales tax for orders from all 50 states. Set up your account to start accurately applying sales taxes to orders.|
|7||Connect your Instagram account.||Once you've connected your Instagram, you can create shoppable posts and stories.|
|8||Create auto-replies for Facebook and Instagram.||Auto-replies let you respond to shoppers who reach out via Facebook Messenger, Instagram DMs, and more. You can use auto-replies to direct these people to your support email or preferred communication method.|
|9||Enable email marketing automations.||Start reaching out to new shoppers, first-time purchasers, and shoppers who've left a cart behind with these easy automations. It's a great way to build trust and rapport while also driving sales.|
