Frequently Asked Questions


GlowRoad is a one stop solution for starting your own social selling business at zero investment. Social selling means selling on WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram etc. Here’s what you get on GlowRoad:

  1. Products at wholesale rate across 300+ categories, which you can sell and make money
  2. An online store of your own
  3. Payment gateway
  4. Complete logistic support
  5. Cash on delivery across India
  6. Extra bonus and attractive rewards

The money you earn when you sell a product is called your margin. Margin is decided entirely by you. Meaning, you can add whatever amount you want to price shown on GlowRoad app. Margin is the amount of money you would want to earn on the sale of each product. This is decided by you while placing the order or sharing the link. Suppose you are seeing a saree for Rs 500 on GlowRoad – and you sell it for Rs 750, you earn the entire difference i. e 750-500 = 250 Rs. The margin amount (Rs 250) will be transferred to your account after order is delivered.

Reselling is the most rewarding work-from-home opportunity these days. Most resellers make 4000 to 5000 Rs per month by the third month of reselling. That’s quite exciting because you invest nothing, time required is less than one hour per day, and reselling can be done from anywhere. By one year, serious resellers make 40,000-50,000 Rs per month.

If you are new to reselling follow these steps:

  • Install WhatsApp on your phone (if you don’t have it already)
  • Add as many people as you can on WhatsApp
  • Tell people that you have started an online business and will be sharing exciting products from your shop
  • Now start sharing products from GlowRoad app to WhatsApp [Learn more about sharing here]
  • When someone shows interest in buying a product – check for how much you are getting that product on GlowRoad
  • Suppose you are getting it for Rs 400 – quote your price after adding 10-15% margin (Rs 440 to 460 in this case).
  • If customer confirms interest in buying, place the order for the customer . That’s all. [Learn more about placing order here]
  • From here we will manage everything. We will ship the product to your customer, collect cash on delivery, and send you your margin.
  • You can also share and sell on Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp Business. The more you promote your products by sharing, higher is your chance of sale.

We understand how important it is for resellers to keep their source of supply private. The customer will never find the original source and price. The courier is sent on behalf of you and the price shown on invoice is the final price quoted by you.

Your margins will be deposited to your bank account. There is a bank detail section in the app where you can fill all details.

We make sure that products listed on GlowRoad are good value for money. The suppliers are on boarded by a team of people with deep domain expertise and experience in E commerce sites like Flipkart and Amazon. Most suppliers have a proven track record of good quality.

Plus quality is monitored rigorously based on return rates. You will see ratings generated by the system for each product, catalog and for each supplier. In addition, you wills ee ratings and reviews from other resellers.

If your customer wants to return a product, you can easily place a return request on the app. Our courier person will go and pick up the product from your customer and full refund will be issued.

Whenever a customer places an order on your shared link, we will send you a notification on your GlowRoad dashboard plus an SMS and E Mail on your registered E Mail ID and Phone number.

If you are a reseller (you are just sharing products uploaded by other people): Nothing. Just back and enjoy. We will take care of everything. Your buyer will receive order tracking details on E Mail instantly after making online payment.

If you are a supplier (you have uploaded your own products on GlowRoad): Read This. Important!!

The order confirmation E Mail that is sent to you immediately after placing the order has an orange button called View Tracking Details .Click on it and you will be able to see where your order is. You can also track your order by going to My Shop > My Orders and clicking on it. Your customers also get an order confirmation E-Mail on your behalf and can track the order.

Margin is the amount of money you want to earn on the sale of each product. E.g. If there is a Kurti listed at a price of Rs.500 on, but you think you can sell it for Rs 900, then while sharing the product just change the price to Rs 900. Your customers will see a price of Rs 900 = Rs.500 (original price) + Rs.400 (your margin). Don't worry, the customer will never get to know the original price. The customer can pay online and buy from your link. After product is delivered, we will transfer Rs 400 to your account.

Adding margins while sharing a single product: You will see a screen where you can edit the product price. Simply click on this and change the price to whatever you want. Then click OK.

The price of all products in the collection will increase by percentage selected by you. If you want to add a different margin to each product in a collection, share them individually to change prices as described above for Adding margins while sharing a single product.

It is entirely up to you. There is no upper limit. We are the most flexible and reseller friendly system that way. It's not like affiliate marketing where you earn few rupees per sale. Here you can earn hundreds or thousands per sale.

We do not charge any margin. The difference between price paid by buyer and original price on GlowRoad (which we call Your Margin), is fully yours. We just want you to share more and earn more.
