Hello there and welcome to this GrooveSell review!
In this post, I’ll be going over all things GrooveSell related, so that you can get an idea of what this software is, how to use it, how much it costs, the pros and cons of it…any other relevant material, that you might find useful.
So buckle up, and let’s go check out! ?
What Is GrooveSell?
GrooveSell is an online marketplace and sales platform, that allows you to sell or be an affiliate for, different online and digital products.
The app was created by Mike Filsaime, and is part of the revolutionary GrooveFunnels all-in-one Digital Platform, and with it, you can create complete product funnels. From checkout pages, up-sell pages and down-sell pages, order bump pages, custom checkout pages…and much more.
Think of it as a shopping cart platform just like PayKickStart, SamCart, Ontraport or ThriveCart.
With the difference that it does not charge you any transaction fees at all! This means that you as a seller, only have to deal with actually getting the product up and ready on the sales platform (which is really easy to do, we’ll go over how to do that in this article)…and that’s about it. ?
It’s important to note:
GrooveSell is NOT for selling physical products though. It’s specifically made for digital “how-to” products. Ebooks, courses, pdfs, video training…and so on.
In case you want to do dropshipping, print on demand or any kind of physical selling whatsoever, you’ll want to check out their app GrooveKart. It’s a great alternative for Shopify, and is also created by the team who created GrooveFunnels (you can actually get GrooveKart an all the other tools through GrooveFunnels).
Who Created GrooveSell?
GrooveSell was built by the company GrooveDigital.
GrooveSell is one of the many apps that is available inside of the GrooveFunnels platform, created by Mike Filsaime who is the CEO of GrooveDigital.
Who Is GrooveSell For?
GrooveSell is perfect for anyone who’s interested in selling something digital online, whatever it may be.
It’s perfect for the “how-to” products: How to lose weight, how to do real estate investing, how to learn coding, how to trade cryptocurrency…and so on.
GrooveSell is perfect for selling courses, ebooks, pdfs, trainings, memberships, coaching and so on. Thus, GrooveSell is perfect for you if you are a:
✅ Software developers
Or are in any one of the possibly thousands of other categories in which you have a product or service that you can deliver through the internet.
Bottom line: If you want to sell your products or services online, then you can use GrooveSell.
How To Use GrooveSell
In this part, we’ll be going over the different sections that you’ll find inside the GrooveSell app, what they are, and how to go about using them.
Before we look at every tab individually, I’d like to mention that when you sign up into GrooveSell, it works very similarly to like a ClickBank account: You’re both a vendor, and an affiliate.
Your “vendor tabs” will be on the top left half of the screen, and your “affiliate tabs” on the bottom left half.
So once you log in to the GrooveSell dashboard, you’ll be able to see the following options, on the left side of the window:
- “Grid Button” (Return to GrooveApps)
As well as the dashboard by default, which will show you visitors, conversions, revenue and more information. As you can see from the image below. ?
With that said…let’s looks t at each section individually:
As A Vendor
This is the basic “home button”. It’ll take you over to one of two destinations: The vendor dashboard (if you’re creating products or have one created) or the affiliate dashboard (if you’re to be an affiliate of a product or have been approved to promote products).
This is the main section to add products to your GrooveSell dashboard.
This is also where you can add specific tracking links, add and create coupon discounts, look at sales taxes and check your vendor settings and have available other options like allow refund transaction, cancel subscription and more.
This is also the tab you have to click on to actually give you the ability to create a new product funnel. You’ll have the option appear to you, on the top right part of the screen. It’ll say “New Product Funnel“. You can click the pink button to create one.
I’ve added a test product to it, and this is what it looks like:
This section of GrooveSell, allows you to see all the information regarding sales transactions.
So, information such as successful transactions, failed transactions, the customer name, the product detail, the product name, the price, and a bunch of additional information.
You can also search through and filter this information, dates and filter out free transactions as well as exporting parts of it, or the entirety of it.
This section has both some of your affiliate information, as well as the information of your affiliates (in case you’re selling a product and have an affiliate program).
- If you’re a product creator, this section is made for you to keep track of who your affiliates are, how many clicks were sent by whom and to which product/funnel, pending commissions, earned commissions, email, refunds, and so on and so forth.
- If you’re an affiliate, this section is also where you can add your personal payment information and tax id through your settings and also see your affiliate payments (how much you’ve earned, refunds, pending payments and so on).
As An Affiliate
The “affiliate dashboard”, is basically the GrooveAffiliate app. (one of the many GrooveFunnels apps) If you were to log into your GrooveAffiliate account, this section is where you’ll be logging into.
GrooveSell and GrooveAffiliate are interlinked and intertwined on the same dashboard. ?
This is where you’ll be able to see all the products that are available to be sold inside the GrooveSell app, that the different users of the platform have listed. You can sign up to promote the products and browse upcoming products here.
NOTE: This feature, is as of this moment, currently unavailable (since the software is in the early stages of development). However, it’ll be available very soon (May or June 2020) and will harbor some high-quality, high-converting products that you’ll be able to promote.
The promo section displays all the products that you’re promoting, as an affiliate. As well as all the starts fore these. The sales you’ve made, the total commissions, the amount of impressions and unique clicks.
After clicking on the “Promos” section each product you’ve been approved to promote will be shown on the dashboard, and there is a section to the right, which allows you to easily grab your affiliate links, add a bonus or look at the “dashboard” for that product.
The “dashboard” allows you to filter the dates on which you got clicks to the offers, see the links, and grab promotional material, that the seller has uploaded for you. Pretty cool! ?
On the left, you’ll be able to see your promotions, see your bonuses, edit your affiliate payments and edit your affiliate settings (like on the affiliates tab in the seller section).
“Grid Button” GrooveApps :
This is the final button, which is represented by 9 dots, in the form of a grid. The function of this button is simply opens up your GrooveFunnels/GrooveApps dashboard.
From this point forth, you can access the rest of the apps, the marketplace, other services and so on.
Here is how the GrooveFunnels dashboard used to look like (don’t worry it looks very similar):
How To Create A Product With GrooveSell
To create a product of your own that you can have up and running and available to sell, with GrooveSell within no time, is actually pretty easy.
- First, you want to head over the “Funnels tabs“.
- Click on the Product Funnels option from the top left section.
- Next, click on the “New Product Funnel” button, on the top right corner of your window.
- The next step is for you to add an internal name, a name and a description to the product. Finally, click on the “Create Product Funnel” button, like so:
- Your product should now be listed. You’ll now see all the available stats. From sales, refunds, revenue, commissions and dates. And you’ll have the option to either copy the tracking link, edit the product details or delete the product altogether.
- Next you’ll want to edit the product, by clicking on the middle option on the right side of the panel.
- The next step, is setting up all of the details for your product: The pricing (free, monthly, one time, etc), the payment gateways, the delivery page for the content, the checkout pages, order bumps (upsells cross-sells and more), refund period, the funnel, the fulfillment, if affiliates will be allowed or not (commission structure, JV page, etc) and more…
GrooveSell allows you to customize the checkout pages to your liking. Whether that be a GrooveSell hosted checkout, a website embed, a pop-up, or your own custom check-out design.
You also have the option to add a specific look and feel to the check-out page, as well as add testimonials, form fields, custom tracking, legal pages, compliance boxes, and much more…which is really nice and also very simple to do.
Once you’ve created the product, it’ll now be available to sell on the platform. All you have to do, is:
- Go to your products by clicking on the Funnels tab and then on the Product Funnels section.
- Set the product to “live” by clicking on the actions tab.
And you’ve now got your product live and ready to be sold! ?
If you want to see the platform in action, check out this video by Mike Filsaime. It’s a bit long, but he goes over every single aspect of the platform, in it.
So how much does GrooveSell cost and what is the GrooveSell pricing?
The GrooveSell app is currently priced at $99/month.
However you can also get GrooveSell, as part of the GrooveFunnels platform, in any one of its plans. It’ll usually come with both GrooveSell and GroovePages.
For that reason, if you’re interested in getting GrooveSell, it might be a good idea to grab any of the GrooveFunnels plans, since you’ll be getting at least 2 other apps for free, on top of it.
Can You Get GrooveSell For Free?
You might have noticed, or read somewhere, that you could at some point in time, get GrooveSell for free.
The truth is that in April 2020, Mike Filsaime and the GrooveFunnels team, made available a FREE account for GrooveSell, GrooveAffiliate and GroovePages lite, as a response to the virus breakout and pandemic.
Now, the offer is not supposed to be around forever (although they might keep it free indefinitely…you never know) but if you’re interested in getting GrooveSell for free, you can get a FREE account here. Alternatively, you can click on any one of the big buttons on this page, which should take you over to it.
If it is, you’ll get GrooveSell, GrooveAffiliate and GroovePages Lite 100% free, without needing to add any credit card information or anything. No strings attached. ?
Can you sell physical products with GrooveSell?
No. GrooveSell is only for digital products. In case you want to sell physical products, you’d probably want to use the alternative GrooveApp called GrooveKart. It’s just like Shopify, but a lot better.
How many funnels can I create with my GrooveSell account?
With the GrooveSell app, you can:
- Create unlimited product funnel
- Create unlimited pages
- Have unlimited affiliates
- And unlimited products
This is essentially, unlimited everything.
Are there any fees involved in GrooveSell?
No. NONE. GrooveSell isn’t like SamCart, PayKickStart or any of these other platforms. You don’t get charged any fees with GrooveSell.
Can I use my own PayPal, Stripe, Merchant Account, etc with GrooveSell?
Does GrooveSell mark up transactions?
Nope. GrooveSell isn’t like ClickBank, JVZoo, WarriorPlus and the likes. No monthly fees either. None of that.
Will GrooveSell have an affiliate marketplace like ClickBank or JVZoo?
Yes. GrooveSell will have (and be) its own marketplace, which will be available somewhere in June 2020.
It’ll become a great place to list your products for partners to promote, as well as being a place to find amazing, high-converting high-quality products to promote, if you want to be an affiliate.
How does GrooveSell’s GrooveSell-Payments work?
GrooveSell Payments is an optional service you get within payment gateways (when creating your product).
It allows GrooveDigital to handle accounting, taxes, affiliate payments and more, making it completely hands-off for you. There are rates involved with this payment option, but they’re lower than sites like ClickBank.
This service is for sellers (or up-and-coming sellers) who don’t want to have to deal with Stripe or PayPal account bans and shutdowns, or for those who have issues getting merchant accounts because of their country of residence, people with credit issues, etc.
GrooveSell Review Conclusion
GrooveSell is an absolutely amazing online tool from the GrooeDigital team that allows you to create host and sell your digital products online, without having to pay any fees and super easily with a few clicks and edits.
You’ll be able to create unlimited product pages and funnels, with different upsells or down sells, at different price points, with or without a trial, with or without an affiliate program and with a customizable sales pages.
GrooveSell is thus, a great alternative to sites like ClickBank, JvZoo, Warrior+ or PayKickStart, and looks to easily be able to replace them (especially if you’re just starting out) when it comes to selling your own products online.
On the affiliate side of things…
GrooveSell allows you to easily create an account, log in to the marketplace (through GrooveAffiliate) and quickly and easily sign up to promote any of the high-quality, high-converting products that are available there.
Mike Filsaime and the GrooveFunnels team, are really going all-in, and GrooveSell looks to be a very powerful tool for marketers and product creators alike.
