What are the seller fees

  • Our normal fee is a 10% commission on all sales done through the platform.
  • Pre-launch fee will be a 5% commission.
  • We do have a monthly subscription charge which we use to keep the listing quality high (starting at $3/month for basic seller plan)
  • No charges until all listing are live.

What do I need to do to qualify as a seller?

Just apply and link your website and examples of your work in the application. We do want to interview applicants to make sure out interests are aligned and that you are a fit for this platform.

  • You make the items you sell(small shop..no factory products)
  • Live in the US.
  • Fill out our application.

When will my listings be live?

Listings will be active by January 1st 2022. We want to get a sufficient inventory of goods on the platform before launch so will not subscription fees until after launch in 2022.

Any sales prior to this will be charged a 5% commission to cover our payment processing fee of 2.9%.

How do you determine my initial seller Level

We want to talk to or at least touch base with the majority of the initial sellers to make sure we are doing the best we can.

Our initial plan is to let the established makers and crafters have higher price limits and custom offer availability than the hobbiest who will initially be limited on the price for products.
