  • When can I go LIVE? What is the best time, and is there a time limit?

The key to a successful LIVE session lies in effectively marketing it to your audience and creating a sense of anticipation. Prioritize generating excitement among your viewers by sharing the link to LIVE on all social platforms. Regarding scheduling, it's good practice to maintain at least a 30-minute gap between your LIVE session and that of another seller, if feasible. There is no specific time limit for how long you can go LIVE, but we recommend a minimum of 45 minutes and a maximum of 5 hours.

  • How do I get paid?

The funds for your first LIVE's orders will be released once the buyer receives their purchases. Once shipping for your orders for your first LIVE are marked as "delivered", you become a trusted seller. Being a trusted seller means you will receive payments much faster once all future orders are marked as in-transit. You can check your Palmstreet wallet balance in your account’s settings, under total balance. Once you add in the proper banking info, you can transfer your earnings to your PayPal, Venmo, or external bank account.

  • How many items should I post for my first live? Do they all have to be plant-related?

We recommend listing a minimum of 20 items in preparation for your LIVE. These can include plants, plant-related materials, accessories, merchandise, and plant care items. If you are planning to do auction style, please set aside the same amount to present during your live.

  • Can people buy items I don't have pinned?

No, people can only buy items that have been pinned at any time during the LIVE. The shop icon inside the LIVE will show people exactly what has been pinned and is available for purchase.

  • Any tips for having a successful LIVE?
    1. Engaging Introduction: Start by introducing yourself and your passion for plants. Share a brief background about your expertise and experience with plants. This helps build a personal connection with your audience. We also highly recommend having a quality cover photo for your LIVE as this helps build anticipation.
  • 2. Appealing Background Setup: Choose a visually appealing background for your live stream. A setup with well-arranged plants and good lighting can create an inviting atmosphere. Avoid clutter and distractions in the background.

    3. Quality Stream: Use a good quality phone and have good Wi-Fi connection to ensure your audience can clearly see and hear you. Blurry visuals and poor video quality can deter viewers from staying engaged.

    4. Interactive Content: Engage your viewers by asking questions, reading their comments, and responding to them during the live stream. Encourage them to ask questions about the plants you're showcasing.

    5. Educational Content: Share interesting and educational information about the plants you're featuring. Discuss care tips, watering schedules, sunlight requirements, and any unique characteristics. This not only informs your viewers but also showcases your expertise.

    6. Showcase Variety: Display a variety of plants during the live stream. Highlight different types, sizes, and colors to appeal to a wider audience. This allows viewers with various preferences to find something they like.

    7. Engage Before and After: Announce your live stream sale ahead of time on your social media platforms to generate anticipation. After the stream, thank your viewers for participating and highlight any successful sales.
