Frequently Asked Questions

How does this AdultTurnkeySuperstore work?

We host and set up a full featured, fully functioning eCommerce (shopping cart) retail sex toy website, fully loaded with over 10,000 name-brand, best selling sex toy products (you can add more or subtract less) with their images and descriptions. We also pre-set the suggested retail pricing (so you don’t have to) which you can modify at any time should you wish to through your cart admin control panel. You are in full control of your sex toy shopping cart superstore and all it’s many features.

We have your AdultTurnkeySuperstore eCommerce website fully installed within an estimated 10 business days (not including weekends or holidays. In some cases it may take slightly longer dependent on workloads.) and will be what we call retail ready and ready to process orders at that time.

A customer will come to your site, place an order with you and check out with their credit card which will be processed by your shopping cart with whichever payment options you decide in advance to use.

The two main electronic credit card processing choices are a full merchant account and/or PayPal. with both of those payment systems the monies are deposited directly into your account within 2 to 3 business days of the customer transaction. We have full merchant account services available and can assist you with getting it set up.

There are additional fees involved with acquiring a merchant account. Please see the FAQ titled “Order Processing” for details on the merchant account and other payment options you can offer your customers through your AdultTurnkeySuperstore. When orders come in your shopping cart system will e-mail you a order notification. You will then log on to our whole self-fulfillment site and placed the order with us so that we can drop ship it to your customer.

We will provide you with login and registration information to our fulfillment site when you sign up for the AdultTurnkeySuperstore. The customer will pay full retail price for the item off of your website and when you shop with us, you will pay the cost for that Item. For instance if the customer purchased an item off of your site at the retail cost of $50, your wholesale cost when you purchase that item for us to ship it to them will only be approximately $25. That’s how you make your profit. NOTE: It should be noted that you are always in control of your pricing and you can raise or lower a single item or the entire inventory at anytime you wish.

You will check out with us in our shopping system and use whatever credit card you wish to complete the order with us. On your/our checkout page you will have a text area to provide us with the customer shipping address and we will process and drop ship the order to them within 24 to 48 business hours. Once the order has shipped from our warehouse we will e-mail you with the tracking number for that particular order. That constitutes the complete into in process. For any additional questions do not hesitate to contact us, as we are happy to answer any additional questions you may have.

We are available 10 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday Eastern standard time and we take lunch between 1 and 2 PM. We look forward to working with you!

What are the start-up costs?

Total start-up costs is only: $179.95 (one time fee) includes 1st 30 days of service.

Then, after the 1st 30 days we bill you $79.95 per month (that’s just $2.66 per day) flat rate thereafter with no contract, so you can quit at any time.

So you think you can’t afford to start and run your AdultTurnkeySuperstore business today? Think about this…the AdultTurnkeySuperstore will cost you just $2.66 a day. Think about what else you spend $2.66 on in a day. One Starbucks Venti Iced Latte will cost you around $6.95!

(Remember! All of your start-up costs and monthly charges are tax deductible as business expenses). Always consult a C.P.A.

This makes your financial risk virtually nonexistent!

Do I need a business licenses?

You do not need a business license upfront to have us get your AdultTurnkeySuperstore up and operating online.

Eventually you will need to acquire either a business license, or a tax ID number and/or re-seller permit, but please consult your local city and state requirements as they pertain to operating a home based business, if you will be operating out of your home. But there is no law that we know of that says that you cannot get your website business up and running prior to having those documents in place.

It should be noted we are not and do not give legal advice here, just expressing our opinion on the matter.

In the meantime, all you need to get started with us is to place your order with a credit card now.

Will I have/need my own domain name?

Yes, and you will own and control it once you acquire it. If you do not already have a domain name purchased, you can search for, purchase and register your new domain name at a popular domain name registrar such as GoDaddy.com. You need to do a search 1st (at the domain name registrar) to see if the domain name you want is available.

After you have purchased your new domain name, there will be a text box to add it with your turnkey order when you check out at our website.

If you like, we can acquire the domain name on your behalf. You do not need to have your domain name prior to ordering your AdultTurnkeySuperstore, though we will need it in order to complete your cart installation.

What makes the AdultTurnkeySuperstore different than other competitors?

Established in the year 2006, we have provided the AdultTurnkeySuperstore service for over 17 years and counting! So we have been around a long time, unlike most of our “copycat” competitors who have barely been around a few years. This gives us a superior edge of experience. Experience you can rely on.

Another difference is that most of our competitors offer what is called an affiliate type of arrangement and set up with their sites. Meaning you really don’t have full control of the web site or the money, and they only offer you a commission (typically a measly 20 to 40% revenue share) on the sales that are made from the site. What’s more, they send you a so-called commission check at the end of every month. 

What differentiates the AdultTurnkeySuperstore is that you control YOUR money. When the sale is made from your turnkey web site, the money is processed through your merchant account (additional fees apply for a merchant account) and or PayPal, and the funds are deposited directly into your bank account within two to three business banking days of the transaction, not three weeks or more like the competitors. 

We believe that you should be in control of your money, not someone else. With the AdultTurnkeySuperstore you have full control over your money, pricing, full control over every other administrative aspect of your shopping cart. For instance if a vibrator featured on your web site has a wholesale price of $10.00 and the retail markup to the customer is between $19.95 and $25.00. That markup above the wholesale cost is your profit. No cheesy commissions here, just full-on profit in your bank, not ours!

In addition, our competitors will be hard pressed to match our global shipping and distribution channel capabilities. We have some of the fastest global shipping in the industry. Our efficient global shipping channel will be accessible to you, when you join the AdultTurnkeySuperstore system.

And finally support! Our tech support department is highly skilled, highly able on all aspects of E-commerce systems administration and are ready to assist you with any and all of your questions and/or technical issues. We will never leave you stranded or hanging on an issue or questions and are happy and ready to assist you until your issues are resolved to your complete satisfaction!

Is your company really legit? There area a lot of scams out there.

The answer is yes we are completely legit!

We established the AdultTurnkeySuperstore services back in 2006, so we’ve been around a while!

You operate the AdultTurnkeySuperstore on a month-to-month basis with no contract with our no hassle cancellation policy.

Do I have to sell your products exclusively on the web site?

You are not required to sell our products exclusively.

In fact you may sell products that you acquire from several distributors and manufacturers, and or your own “private label” products, this is totally up to you.

Can I host the AdultTurnkeySuperstore package on my own servers?

Unfortunately no.

The AdultTurnkeySuperstore package must be hosted on our dedicated servers.

The AdultTurnkeySuperstore comes with a full-featured web hosting package and services and we use the industry-standard Cpanel control panel for all your web administrative needs.

You also have full FTP access to upload and download files, 10 free pop three e-mail accounts, and a whole suite of free apps like WordPress blogs chat software, image libraries and more all included.

We have some of the most reliable most advanced backend systems in the business when it comes to our dedicated servers which we own, server management and backbone to the Internet. Our servers are monitored and managed 24/7 365 with a 99.9% up time guarantee.

What's the average income I can make running an AdultTurnkeySuperstore?

There really is no average from one AdultTurnkeySuperstore operator to another simply because everyone is completely different.

No two people are running their business exactly the same way behind the scenes. Nor are two people marketing and promoting their sites exactly the same way. All these factors and various others translate into what one person’s website does as opposed to the other.

For instance, we may have a turnkey operator who do absolutely nothing to promote their site, get the word out, market and really work their site and business. Instead, perhaps they choose to goof off all day, watch television or go play golf, and are just not serious or concerned with focusing on building their business.

On the other hand we will have others who are real go-getters, who are out there making things happen, promoting their site, marketing their site, really out there working it and working hard. As you can well imagine, those individuals are going to have much better results to their bottom line, than the person/s who want to sit around on the couch watching TV all-day and goof off.

So the bottom line is, you get out of your business what you put into it. And this holds true to any business that you own or operate.

So we cannot say, well 90% of our client base does an average of X amount of income per month. What our clients make month-to-month varies widely again based on many, many factors like the ones mentioned above.

So there is no magic bullet. However, when you own and operate a business your income always fluctuates, it’s not like a 9-to-5 job where you get a set paycheck every week etc. If you have run other businesses in the past or currently run a business, you understand what we’re talking about here.

When you run your own business, your income streams vary week to week, month to month, and year to year, this is the life of an entrepreneur.

The most important thing and the good news is, there is no ‘glass ceiling’ preventing you from making as much money on a daily weekly and monthly basis as you can.

But remember, when you run your own business you get out of it what you put into it. There are no magic bullets, and no ‘get rich quick’ schemes here.

The sky is truly the limit on how much money you can earn, but it all rests with you how hard you’re willing to work to build your business!

We provide you with the professional tools, and backend support so that you can get out there, make your best efforts and put your best foot forward to become the e-entrepreneur that you aim to be.

The rest is up to you, with our experienced support!

What is my profit? How much do I make off of one item & what's the markup?

The retail mark-up is between 40 to 100% depending on the product.

For example, if our wholesale price is $10.00, we pre set the retail markup above wholesale costs to between $14.99 and $24.99 retail. This range let’s you remain competitive in the online marketplace.

So if the item wholesales (your cost) at $50.00 the retail costs (what the customer pays on your site) would be approx $100.00. So you would have earned a cool $50.00 profit on that sale. And the customer pays the shipping!

However, the internet and product pricing (from one e-commerce website to the other) is pretty much the wild west (with some exceptions of course) so you can go into your cart administrative back end and adjust your prices any way you see fit at any time you wish. You have the ability to adjust a single product price or all of the products.

The fact that you can control your pricing by either increasing or decreasing them essentially let’s you create your own profit margins. We chose the formula mentioned above simply as a starting point to get you out of the starting gate and into the game without having to go through several thousand products and mark them up from wholesale.

Selling these products off-line (home parties, brick and mortar store fronts etc) you could mark up your items in upwards of 300% above wholesale.

The retail markup of adult novelty sex toys has always been and continues to be excellent!

Who processes the credit cards when orders come in paid for via credit card? Are there merchant account services included?

You will process your customer credit cards when the orders come in to you.

This way the money goes directly into your bank account before you ever have to purchase the product from us at wholesale costs so we can drop ship it to your customer. The AdultTurnkeySuperstore comes with several types of payment options built into the shopping cart system.

So in order to process credit cards you will need a merchant account (additional fees apply) and or PayPal. You can sign up for a PayPal account at: PayPal.com

We have merchant payment services available (additional fees apply) to begin accepting credit cards online immediately. The shopping cart also offers your customers the choice to also pay with a personal check, money order, business check or cashier’s check. You can also control which payment options the customer will see when they check out via your shopping cart administrative control panel.

We can have you approved for a full merchant account (additional fees apply) within 24 to 72 hours, so you can accept all major credit cards. You will need an active checking account for either a merchant account and or PayPal. We provide you with an online application to get your merchant account set up at the time you sign up for the AdultTurnkeySuperstore. Other popular payment options are available upon request.

An application to apply for our merchant account is emailed to you upon completion of your AdultTurnkeySuperstore shopping cart installation. You are under no obligation to use our merchant services as we offer them as a courtesy to you. If you decide to use your own merchant account services please contact us by telephone to check and see if your merchant accounts payment gateway is compatible with our systems.

You can use both a merchant account and PayPal payment options simultaneously. It cannot hurt you to offer as many payment options as possible to your customers, as some people prefer to use a merchant account and don’t like to use PayPal, while others prefer to use PayPal and not use their credit cards through a standard merchant account.

Whether you choose one or the other or both is entirely up to you based on that criteria.

Are there any charges for Drop Shipping?

No, not for AdultTurnkeySuperstore operators.

This fee ($3.00 per address) is waived. We want you to make maximum profit.
