Dropbox has announced that U.S. individuals can now begin using the new Dropbox Shop app to sell their digital content, such as art, plugins, and music.
The new Dropbox store allows creators to sell digital assets
The store is still in beta, but you can create product listings and customize your store, as well as track the performance of your store and product with detailed sales, revenue, and customer action data. The store also has a secure payment processing and automatic delivery system.
How Dropbox Shop creators can use it
Dropbox has made it easy for creators to sell their digital content through the store. Just add your content from Dropbox, set a custom image thumbnail, video or audio preview, and then set the price with the option to enable the tip. Dropbox then creates a link that can be shared or embedded so anyone can buy your products.
Your store account includes up to 50 GB of images, audio, video, and documents in each listing, and each item sold will be delivered automatically after payment. You can paste your product list links into social media posts, emails, and web pages to share directly with customers, or you can alternatively insert tabs on your own website.
Dropbox is partnered with PayPal and Stripe, so there are several payment options, including major credit cards and Google Pay.
You can also create your own e-commerce store in the Dropbox store, as well as edit your profile and customize your store URL to display your products with a branded theme.
Analysis tools include the ability to review aggregate and list-level sales, as well as visualizations and total revenue. Creators will also be able to view customer information such as the source of traffic, detailed actions, and historical transactions.
A flexible digital sales experience
A Dropbox statement read: “Content creators have long used Dropbox to store and share their digital work. And that need has only grown during the pandemic, as more and more people seek to make a living doing so. With Dropbox Shop, we’ve designed a more valuable and flexible digital sales experience for creators, streamlining the process of sharing (and monetizing) their content, all within Dropbox.
“This new platform allows creators to easily sell content, from ebooks and recipes to prints and training videos, directly to their customers, so they can spend more on what they like: creating.”
Dropbox store user Sally Schönack, fitness trainer and influencer of Fit With Sally, said, “What I really like about the Dropbox store is that it’s very easy to use and you can create a store very quickly. It allows me to focus on what I’m good at instead of figuring out the logistics of a new platform. “
Dropbox Shop waiting list for computers
The beta version of the Dropbox store is currently only available to people in the United States, and computers still need to be on the waiting list. Creators outside the U.S. can also sign up for the waiting list, and Dropbox will notify everyone on the list when it’s available for use.
