Why should you become a Classroom 101 vendor?

We would like to become the biggest “one stop shop” for all teachers, parents and students searching for educational resources online.

We are looking for suppliers of summaries, lesson plans, assessments, excercises, classroom posters, educational toys, textbooks, exam papers and more, for children from 3 years and up.  Anything you have that can be useful for any of these categories – you can sell it here.  You can also use any language for your products, but it has to be your own work.  Using other people’s work will result in a fine of R5000 and you will be banned from the page immediately.

It is expensive to build your own brand.  Building a website takes time and money.  Finding customers is no easy task.  We would like to provide you with an easy and affordable platform to grow your business.

What are the costs involved?

There are two options to list your products on Classroom101:

Basic (do it yourself) – FREE:

  • No registration fee.
  • No monthly fees.
  • 30% commission on sales, deducted from your sales for the month.
  • Note – if you have no sales for the month, you will not be liable for any costs.
  • You set up your own shop and load your own products.
  • Tutorial videos are available and you may contact us for help.

Gold (let us do it for you) – R250 once off* 

  • We set up your store for you.  We will need your logo, description of your shop, list of products to be loaded with details and pricing and documents to be uploaded as part of your product.
  • This fee includes the loading of the first 10 products.
  • *Thereafter R20 per product to be loaded will apply.
  • No monthly fees.
  • 30% commission on sales, deducted from your sales for the month.
  • Note – if you have no sales for the month, you will not be liable for any costs.

 Platinum (advertisement package) – R150 per month

  • Once your shop has been set up and products are loaded (see set up fee of R250 above), we can help boost your advertising for a small monthly fee.
  • You will be able to advertise your products daily on our Facebook page (all posts are subject to approval by a moderator).
  • You will be featured in one of our newsletters every 3 months.
  • We will actively advertise your products in our group listings.
  • You may submit interesting articles or blogs for our webpage as well as Facebook page.
  • This will be over and above any sharing or advertising you or your friends may do from your own personal Facebook page or group listings.

  What will you get out of listing here?

  • Your own shop in our “shopping mall”. You will be able to load your logo, contact details, products with lots of pictures and descriptions.
  • Each product loaded will display and go to a newsfeed on our front page.
  • You can use your shop link to advertise your products anywhere you wish.
  • We will periodically send out newsletters where we will introduce your products to the world.
  • People will be able to share your products on whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
  • Customers can easily purchase from our site and you will be notified as soon as you get an order.
  • Your customers will be able to review your store or products, so you will always have feedback on how you are doing, which may help convince other customers to buy from you as well.
  • You will have full control over your page – you upload your own products, decide on your pricing etc.
  • You will always be able to see how many products you have sold, and what amount is owed to you by the end of the month.
  • You will receive your money earned before the 7th of each month. We will deduct commission and listing fees and you will be paid out the balance to your bank account.

How will it work?

  • First register as a vendor.
  • You will receive a confirmation email as soon as your shop has been approved, and you can now start setting up your shop.
  • Should you wish for us to set up your shop please send us an email so we can send you the banking details and forms to complete at info@classroom101.co.za.
  • Once your shop has been activated, and you will receive your login details via email. You can immediately start customizing your shop, adding your logo and details, as well as your products. As soon as you publish your first product, people can start buying from you.  There are various tutorials available to help you set up your shop.
  • Customers will pay via PayFast, or direct bank transfer into the account of Classroom101.
  • For digital products – customers will be able to download these products automatically after payment have been verified. You will receive a notification of the order via email, and you don’t need to do anything else.
  • For physical products
    • You need to set up your own shipping methods and fees. We recommend you make use of a courier or postnet as they are more reliable than the Post Office, and you will be liable for delivering your product timeously.  If a customer needs to be refunded due to a product not being delivered, this will be deducted from your next payout. 
    • You will receive an email as soon as an order have been placed containing the customer’s contact details.
    • Products need to be sent out within 7 days (1 week) of order. If you cannot deliver within the relevant time, please communicate with us and the customer to ensure they know what to expect and why there is a delay.
    • If products are received that are faulty, or not what the customer expected, you would need to replace them at your own cost.
    • If you have already received your payout for the sale of the product, and a customer wishes to return that product for a refund, this amount will be deducted from your next payment.
  • If you have any interesting articles or posts you want to share, you can send this to us to review and we will load it onto the blog section.
  • Please refer to our “Vendor Help” section for detailed instructions on how to get started.
  • You may contact us at any time if you get stuck – 072 630 0337 or info@classroom101.co.za
