Link Your Domain (optional)

Some ACA sellers have closed their ecommerce stores and are now pointing all customers to checkout via ACA.
Others have purchased their own domain names and are redirecting it to their ACA shop. If this is something you would like to do, please let us know, we can assist.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I enter shipping info?

Shipping must be included in the product price. If everyone had a shipping charge of $10 and the customer purchased five items from five different brands, the shipping charge in the cart would appear as $50. We strongly believe this would result in customers abandoning their carts. 
Please use the free shipping calculator located under the resources tab, in most cases, you won't need to add the entire shipping amonunt to every product. 

Why do product images need to be square?

When product images are uploaded in different shapes such as square and rectangle, the alignment of the website will be thrown off. The customer browsing experience would be extremely poor. 

If you have rectangle images that you would really like to include in the listing, these can be placed as the third or fourth image. The first two images must remain square.

What's the Photobox and how do I join?

The photobox is a collaboration ACA has with a product photographer in Melbourne called Brooke. Brooke has an exceptional eye for product photography and has given ACA sellers a special price to have their products photographed. 

Each month, sellers who would like to have some photos taken, send their items to Brooke with a returns label. Brooke will invoice each seller, take the images and send the items back. 

There is usually a waiting list for the photobox, some sellers have committed to one product per month until they have had their whole range photographed. If you would like to take part, please email us. 

Photobox pricing: 
1 Product: $50 + Shipping

What you get:
1 x Styled or Modelled Image
2 x E-commerce images (plain close-ups, showing off the details of the product)

Can I host my own sale?

Yes, of course! 

ACA generally advises against running sales outside of our main sale events. Each year, we take part in the major sale events such as EOFY, BFCM, Boxing Day etc.

With this being said, if you really want to discount a product, please go ahead :) and don't forget to promote it in the VIP group!
