So, you’re ready to join Lowkel with your small business? Great! We’re thrilled to have you. Signing up on Lowkel is easy and only takes a few short minutes. On this page, we’ll tell you how to get your business on Lowkel and get selling!

Registration/Sign-Up Process:

First, visit https://merchant.lowkel.com/signup. This is our registration page for merchant accounts. 

Email Address

Enter your email address. This should be an actual, direct email address that Lowkel can use to contact you, and we will send a verification code to verify this email. Please do not use general customer service email addresses.

Provide Your Name

Enter your first and last name.

Contact Number

This should be a cell phone or landline number that Lowkel can use to reach you directly. If you are not often at your retail location, do not use that location’s phone number. A personal or business cell number works the best here.

Select a Password

Make sure to choose a strong, secure password. We suggest using a combination of uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. This password is used for logging into your Lowkel store.

Accept the Terms and Conditions

Make sure you read and accept the Terms and Conditions, and then check that checkbox before clicking on sign up.

Sign Up & Verify Your Email

That’s it. Just press the “Sign Up” button, and you’re ready to go. You will receive an email at your provided email address, Open it and click on “Verify Email” to verify and proceed with the login.

Store Setup Process:

Now that you have successfully verified your email, you can log in and set up your store by providing the details below.

Create Store

  • Click on “New Store” and you’ll be moved to store details page.

Profile Photo

When you’re setting up your store, uploading a picture of your store is an essential step. Your picture will give your store a virtual “identity.” We suggest using your store or business’s logo for the profile photo.

Cover Photo

Your store cover can be anything you want. We suggest using the image of your storefront or a set of your product images/products filled shelf or something that showcases your line of products. It will help visitors analyze what kind of products they can see in this store.

Select Your Merchant Type

Lowkel facilitates 3 types of merchants, you can choose the one that suits you best.

  • Lowkel Merchant: Select this if you are a local retailer with a brick-and-mortar location and inventory; You will prepare orders for delivery team members to pick up & get paid directly minus commissions.
  • Limited Merchant: Select this if you are a local state-regulated retailer (distiller, winery, brewery, etc.) with a brick-and-mortar location, inventory & will prepare orders for pick up by delivery team members. You will be paid 100% of the product price and receive monthly service bills.
  • Hands-Free Merchant: Select this if you are a local retailer with a brick-and-mortar location, inventory, will not handle orders (but can view them), and our shopping team members will fulfill and deliver orders. Our shoppers will pay you in-store, and prices are marked up to account for extra costs.

Store Name and Slogan

This one’s simple! Just enter the name of your store — no need to include any “LLC” or “corp” here. Also, please enter your store slogan as it shows as a short description of your store.

Select Location

Type in your store’s brick-and-mortar location. Make sure you type in your retail location, not the location of your offices, PO Box, or administrative facilities, as the shoppers will visit here and Pick up / Shop items, so this needs to be the accurate location of your shop.

Contact Email and Number:

Email and Number will be auto-added from your sign-up details. You may change here if you wish to but login details will not be changed.
