Who can join
If you’re a local Shetland arts & crafts maker, food producer or other local business then we’d love to have you on Shetland Market! You can sell most products on here as long as they’re made by a Shetland business from crafts to local produce. The main no-no’s are services, second hand stuff (except reconditioned) and bought-in products.
How does it work
There are several businesses on Shetland Market. As a business you set your prices and delivery charges. Customers can shop and buy from several at once, and when they place an order Shetland Market automatically distributes the order to each supplier, paying you instantly by Paypal (account required). You then communicate with the customer and send out the order direct to them. The selling “contract” is between you and the customer, not Shetland Market.
What does it cost
Shetland Market charges no registration fee, no listing fees and no commission. You can support the site by paying a small monthly fee to have your products “featured” which means they have prime position on the front page, will be promoted on our Facebook page and appear somewhere on most other pages, too. The site aims to cover costs only. The site uses Paypal to process payment and Paypal charge a transaction fee of 20p + 3.5% for each sale. (Shetland Market do not receive any of this)
Why should I join
Shetland Market is an easy way to get your products online and sell products easily and benefit from all the other businesses already here. The site simply aims to promote local products in Shetland and encourage folk to buy locally, by making it easy for them to do so. As a member, you’ll get your own shop page that you can use on business cards, marketing etc.
