Setting Up Your Store
What do I need to do to start selling on Jawa?
The first thing you need to do to start selling on Jawa is create a Jawa account! Once you have your account set up, click on your profile picture in the top right corner to open the menu, and navigate to My Products. You should see a button that says “SETUP STRIPE”. You will need to click that button and create a Stripe account. Once you have a Stripe account, you are all done setting up your shop and can start listing products!
If you want to personalize your shop with your own branding, go back into the menu and select Settings. In the Basic Information section, you can change your profile picture and add a banner image, bio, and name for your store. You can also connect your social media accounts from this page.
How do I set up a Stripe account?
To set up a Stripe account, start by going to the My Products page from the main menu. On that page, you should see a button that says “SETUP STRIPE”. Click that button to open the Stripe setup dialog.
To finish setting up Stripe, you will need to give them some information about yourself as well as what you will be selling. If you are having trouble answering any of the Stripe questions, check out the Stripe help center which has tons of great resources.
Some tips for setting up Stripe:
- When asked about industry, buying and selling PC parts often falls under home electronics.
- If you do not have a website for your store, you can add a description about building and selling PC parts instead.
