General Questions

What is MyMinto?

MyMinto is a simple service that enables you to build and promote an online store. It's easy to use and you don't have to be a technical whiz to figure it out. In fact, it's the simplest way to sell online.

How much does it cost?

If you sell less than $25/month, it's completely free! Once you start selling more than $25/month, we charge a 2.5% transaction fee.

Is the free account really free?

Yes, the free account really is free. There aren't any hidden costs or stuff like that. Use it for as long as you wish.

Are there contracts?

Nope. Never. You can enroll into a monthly plan and also cancel at any time.

What kind of stuff can I sell?

You can sell anything you want as long as it's legal and also doesn't violate our terms of service. You can't sell any alcohol, drugs, firearms/weapons, tobacco, pornography, recalled items, real estate, motor vehicles, or any items that promote hatred. You are responsible for all of the items that you sell in your store.

Do my customers need a PayPal account to purchase my products?

Nope. Just make sure that your PayPal settings allow someone to pay with a credit card and you're good to go. However, it's probably easiest to give your customers both options.

Are there any other layouts/customizations that I can make to my page?

Yeah! Just look under the "Themes" section when you're logged into your account. You can change your store colors, upload a band logo, or create a custom header.

Can I use a custom domain?

Absolutely! If you have your own URL that you want to use for your MyMinto storefront, just login to your MyMinto account, type your URL into the Account Settings page, then follow our step-by-step instructions for configuring your URL within your domain host provider to point to your MyMinto store.

PayPal Integration

Do I need PayPal to use MyMinto?

Yes, you must have a PayPal account. It makes getting paid a breeze and automatically integrates with our stores.

How do I setup PayPal with my MyMinto account?

Under the "Account" section of MyMinto (must be logged in), just enter in the email address you use for your PayPal account to the "PayPal email address" text field and click "Save" at the bottom of the page.

Using MyMinto

How do I use Google Analytics with MyMinto?

Signup for a Google Analytics account and you can start tracking where your visitors are coming from. It's free! After signing up copy your Google Analytics account number (you don't need all of the tracking code, just the account number) and paste it into the "Google Analytics" field under the "Account" tab.

What are promo codes?

Promo codes are for when you want to run sales on items. Just create a code and send it out to who you want. When your customers enter the code in the shopping cart, the discount you specify will be applied. Note: Promotions stop exactly on the date you specify. They do not run through the end date.

What about shipping and taxes?

PayPal handles all shipping and taxes. This makes it easy for you to manage your storefront without having to get into the nitty gritty stuff. Just make sure to confirm your shipping and tax settings within your PayPal account.

How do I upload a custom logo or header?

Go to the "Theme" tab within your account and choose an image you would like to upload.

Where can I display information about my company/business?

Under the "Theme" section of MyMinto, you'll find an area called "Custom Pages." Feel free to include information about your company in this section. Whatever you include here will show up in your storefront to your customers.

Account Options

How do I change my password?

Go to the "Account" page within MyMinto and enter a new password, then verify by entering again. Click "Save" at the bottom of the page.

I lost my password, what do I do?
