We personally have been selling online for over 15 years on various platforms including several of our own websites so working with a team that know various platforms including Etsy, Amazon, Ebay and our own domains.
We get to know all of our sellers, we can’t possibly talk about you if we know nothing about you. We are here to build a professional platform for handmade and vintage items focusing on our customers giving them a seamless experience when shopping and our sellers to help their businesses grow.
We optimise every single product and shop using our experience with keywords over many years, our focus will be getting us and you seen on Google and other channels.
Every product added will automatically be pinned to our Pinterest board using our own unique code that enables us to do this. This enables our sellers to really focus on their business and gets you seen.
We follow all our sellers social media pages, we build relationships and we drive orders to you in any way possible.
We charge no Commission Or Fees, you simply pay an annual fee to stay with us and you can choose when setting up your payments if you prefer to use Stripe or Paypal and the frequency of your payments.
To help us begin this unique journey we are allowing all shops to come onboard for one year in blocks of 100 at a time so we can speak to you all and ensure your smooth process on listing with us.
After this, all future shops will be a very simple and affordable £95.00 per year with no add on costs.
We have a Private Sellers group purely for the Beautifully Handmade teams and its sellers, this enables us to keep you fully informed of what we are up to including statistics so you to can see our growth, we can’t do this without you after all.
We’ll blog about your shop deciding with you which keyword you wish to focus on for Google Ranking, we will ask you to write a blog and will assist you with this, these will then be scheduled in order, let’s get you and your business known! Please bear in mind blogs take 6-8 weeks to get any traction however the power of them is huge.
Every single seller has a live chat facility which you set up in your shop when listing with us, this enables buyers to speak to you instantly when you are online! Quick responses builds relationships and sales in an instant, we are the first to offer this as a marketplace.
Alongside this you will also have a send enquiry button under all your products.
All sold out items we ask you do not remove, instead they will filter to a specific area of our site to ensure you do not lose ranking for that page and keyword.
You can upload a CSV file to import your products, that is no problem at all.
Our website is available in multilingual and multi currency.
Each shop will have their own analytics page and reporting system.
Buyers can review products and sellers. In our experience more people are quick to post a negative than a positive so we will monitor this.
Instead of our shops having the opportunity to list featured items or even pay ads to boost their products, we believe that working with all our sellers in a fair manner is of utter importance, therefore everyone gets the opportunity to be on the first few pages in categories as they auto rotate throughout the day. We are here to work with all of you.
We only allow UK Sellers on our website. Our aim is simple to help businesses grow and we are very proud to support the UK handmade industry.
To ensure our loyalty to our shops, we have decided to cap the limit of shops that are allowed onto the platform at 20,000 active shops compared to the over 3 million on Etsy, this ensures consistency for our sellers sales and enables us to continue to provide direct support and growth for those that believed in our platform. When this active shop level is reached, those who wish to join will be placed on a waiting list.
