Not an expert at this, but a commenter asked for a guide to using Family Mart to sell things. I’ve never sold on the platform, but thought I’d try and help out.
The main website is here.
If you’re selling something, you’ll want to click on 賣家專區 (Seller Section) highlighted in red below:
You’ll get an error message and will be redirected to this page, prompting you to register/login. The page asks you to enter your phone number as below:
Once you enter it, they’ll send an SMS to your phone to prove you’re the owner of the phone, and then they’ll prompt you to set a password for your account.

Then you’ll come to the personal information disclosure screen. It will ask for your name, your email (twice) and at the bottom it will ask you if you’re willing to disclose your personal information. (The first option is disclose individual info, the second is disclose company info and the third is don’t disclose – which will be highlighted in blue and is the default choice):
From here, you can add a store:
From here, you’ll be able to name your store:
