Yes, you can sell your merch with Beacons eCommerce social media tools.

Pick and choose from different blocks to encourage your followers to buy from you, or ask for donations through a donation block.
Is eCommerce a good way to make money on social media?
Yes, eCommerce is a great way to make money on social media. Your audience likes to feel connected to their favorite creator, and buying your merch is one of the ways they can do that. Your merch can be anything you want as long as it makes sense for you to sell and for your customers to buy.
Advertising is key to selling your merchandise. This hasn’t changed since people started buying and selling products, but the internet changes how you engage in eCommerce advertising. Instead of taking out an ad in a newspaper, you need to take advantage of your position as a creator by telling people about your site, putting a TikTok link in bio so people can shop during a TikTok feed, and adding links in your video or podcast descriptions, and anywhere else you might be able to get it in front of your audience.
You can use Beacons’s website builder to customize your landing page, promote an event, accept donations, monetize downloadable files, images, videos, and more.
How do you optimize your social media accounts for eCommerce?
There are multiple ways to monetize social media accounts. This can include asking for donations, developing an online course to teach something you create, getting sponsors or affiliations, creating a product to sell, writing a book, and using selling tools such as the ones offered by Beacons. With our eCommerce tools, monetizing your talents has never been easier.
Can audiences send you donations through Beacons social eCommerce tools?
Yes, your audience can send you donations through the donation block on your Beacons eCommerce social media website. You can customize the block and have it link to any donation site of your choice.
How much does it cost to use Beacons’s social media eCommerce Tools?
Beacons offers a free and paid plan to help you get started and grow your merch sales into a robust business. The free version lets you get started selling merch at no cost to you, and it will always be free. Beacons takes a 9% commission on store transactions to pay for the service.
The paid plan is our Entrepreneur plan, which is $10/month. It gives you more control over the sale of your merch with a custom domain, 0% commission on all sales, and no Beacons branding anywhere on the page. Both options give you access to a website builder that is intuitive and easy to use.
