Buyers can now purchase your products, when new products come in they go in to our Latest Products sections of the website and apps meaning you have an instant opportunity for sales. The Vegan Outlet Editors are always searching for the next Brilliant product, if we think yours is one we may feature it on our home page.

The Vegan Outlet automatically collects its fees upon sale of your products, meaning the final value that you receive from Paypal is your gross income from that sale.
