Currently, PlusBase's Flash Sales events are specially designed to target a wide range of Sellers and products. The products highlighted in Flash Sales events are usually located in some hot categories or are trending items on the Catalog. During Flash Sales events, you can find high-quality products at extremely competitive base cost and import them to your store for sale immediately.

When a Flash Sale is happening, you will see the Flash Sales collection at the top of the Catalog along with a countdown timer and sale off cost.


You can also see the Flash Sale countdown timer and discounted base cost when clicking on the product to view its details.


When a product from a Flash Sales collection is imported into the store during a Flash Sales event, the discounted cost will be applied if the product is sold throughout the Flash Sales period. Therefore, make sure to plan your campaign accordingly to maximize your profit from Flash Sales.

You can still get the base cost discount during the Flash Sales period if you imported a product from a Flash Sales collection before the event started.
