Your Caketu Store

Caketu Store Page

Think of your Caketu.com store as your own mini website. You’ll have your own URL like this: www.caketu.com/baker/[yourstorename]. You can personalise it with a logo and banner image, social media links etc. You can list as many products as you like, with pictures, descriptions and ingredients. You can set your own policies, and there’s an About section where you can tell customers about your business and your passion for baking. 

Customers can see your products and order any time of day or night. Less time handling queries means more time for you to do the things you love. It’s your store. You get all the benefits of a regular website, but without the hosting fees or maintenance worries!

Store Setup

It’s fast and simple to get started, using our quick-start wizard that guides you through the process in just a few minutes.

Don’t worry if you don’t have an official logo, just use an eye catching picture of a cake you’ve made! Once you’ve done personalising, you’re good to go. You can amend any details later from your dashboard, if needed.

Listing Products

It’s easy to list products, following our template, and you can list as many products as you like. You set the prices. You upload the pictures. You write the descriptions. You’re in control.

You can list single-priced products with different flavour/colour options.

You can list variable-priced products where the same product comes at different prices, depending on size etc.

You can list products where you offer customisation in the form of name/age/message or decoration.

What Will It Cost?

There are no up front fees for joining Caketu. We think it’s important that we only make money when you do! We just take a simple referral fee whenever you make a sale.

Introductory Offer

7.2% referral fee for 6 months (if you sign up and list at least 5 products within 14 days)

As a thank you to Caketu pioneers, we’re reducing our fees for new bakers who sign up to the ‘Introductory Membership’ package to a simple flat-rate 7.2% referral fee (Minimum referral fee £1 per item) for the first 6 months.

When your Introductory Membership ends (or if you don’t list 5 products by the specified date), your membership will automatically be converted to Standard Free Membership.

We reserve the right to withdraw this offer, without notice, at any time.£

Standard Free Membership

10.2% referral fee on sales

Just a simple flat-rate 10.2% referral fee on sales (Minimum referral fee £1 per item).

Manage Your Schedule

You can control your schedule in several ways.

Firstly, you can set holiday dates for your store. Customers can still browse your products on those days, but they will be unable to book collections for them.

Secondly, you can set lead-in times for all your products, so customers can’t book at cake at midnight and expect to collect it the next day. Each product has its own lead-time setting, so you can keep the same for all, or set longer delays for products with greater complexity – it’s completely up to you.

Thirdly, you control the days when the product is bookable – even how many of that product can be booked per day, if you wish

Lastly, you can allocate availability across a group, or all of your products, by using the ‘resources’ settings, limiting the total that can be ordered for collection on a single day. This way you can be assured that you can handle all the requests you receive, no matter how many cakes you have listed.

Setting delivery charges

If you wish to, you can choose to offer delivery, or stick with collection only.

If you offer delivery, you can set charges priced by distance, according to rules you create in your dashboard.

This additional charge is clear at checkout for the customer to decide if they want to pay for delivery or collect.

Future Plans

We may add further functionality in future, e.g. to take and manage bookings for courses, cake stand hire, invoicing etc. We’re very keen to offer you what you want and need to manage your business effectively, so if there’s something you’d like to see incorporated into Caketu.com, let us know

We’ve set up a private Facebook group for Caketu bakers to connect and share hints and tips. You can contact us and make suggestions for the platform here. We’ll use this channel to keep you up to date with useful data like most popular search terms and emerging trends, so you can see what potential customers are looking for.

This is just for Caketu bakers registered on the platform. You’ll find information on how to join the Facebook group in the Knowledgebase section of your store’s dashboard
