How do I Apply?
To get your organization featured on CRAFTMERCE , please fill out our Sell on Craftmerce to help us to understand your business. A CRAFTMERCE team member will then reach out with any additional questions or information. We use good faith efforts to review every application we receive. However CRAFTMERCE is only able to accept a limited number of makers at any given time.
Once you have successfully gone through our due diligence process, we will build your CRAFTMERCE collection page, and give you access to your CRAFTMERCE Brand portal to upload your product images, descriptions and any additional company information. Some brands prefer to upload their own images and descriptions while others ask for support. For our team to help we need either (i) your catalog and product images; or (ii) if you have a Shopify website, please download a csv file with image url.

Onboarding to CRAFTMERCE Marketplace?
We try to make the process as easy as possible. Once you have successfully completed our due diligence requirements we:
- Give you access to our maker portal to upload product images, descriptions and additional company information. Our team can help you with this process.
- CRAFTMERCE merchandising team then helps curate your products collection, meaning we may feature some of your products while excluding others
- Once we have at least 12 products from your company we will publish your page
- Through your maker portal you can continue to edit and submit new product styles and variants at any time for further review and posting to your collection page
The onboarding process and the time it takes depends on the quality of your digital assets and editorial content. Our onboarding team can assist you as much as you need.
We believe that makers like you are in a unique position to meet the current needs of retail: unique product development and lower minimum order (MOQs) quantities.
Retailers are encouraged to customize and buy exclusive colors/patterns, sizes/shapes and packaging/labelling for their shop. When uploading your products, we ask that you list all possible variants and indicate if a product is available for customized production. If a buyer is interested in an exclusive alternative, we will contact you immediately to confirm the custom variant or packaging request. We ask that you reply within 48 hours or risk the order being cancelled.
