With a little set up, it is easy to launch and maintain a Teachers Pay Teachers store. While it may not bring in a lot of money, it does allow you to make some cash off of materials and ideas you have already invested time and energy into. My store products have all been developed for classes, so selling them is kind of like getting a bonus. Best of all, products are digitally downloaded so there is no shipping to worry about.
So, how do you set up a page?
After you create a free account, you need to set up a storefront. To do this, you will need an image, a store name, a Paypal account (so the company can send you money), and one product. Your first upload will be free, but it should still be good quality because most people will judge you based on this sample.
Once you have set up your store, it is a good idea to post regularly. Set up a posting schedule, stick to particular themes, and ask for customer reviews. You will be up and rolling in no time.
