Getting Started

Do I need a shopping cart?

NO! Absolutely not! We're all about impulse purchases and incremental revenue at Yapyzal and typically we sneeze in the general direction of carts.

This is one of the things that makes Yapyzal so unique. Merchants are not required to have a third party e-commerce website or any other online service (other than Facebook) to use and earn with Yapyzal.

And, of course, Yapyzal is FREE. If you can find another deal like that we want to know!

  1. Payment Gateway
