Become a Vendor on the Proudly Indigenous Crafts & Designs (PIC&D) online store for the opportunity to increase your visibility and reach new customers for your authentic seal products.
Thanks to our well defined online marketing strategy, the PIC&D online store will attract a huge amount of traffic and sales opportunities. Creating an online store and investing in marketing will consume tens of thousands of dollars but you still wouldn’t be able to attract as much traffic.
Small setup costs:
The PIC&D marketplace will save you money by providing administrative, marketing and software development services to you and your customers.
E-Commerce entrepreneurs need to deal with various logistics and shipping tasks, as well as order processing, product information updating, pricing, etc. The PIC&D marketplace helps to automate most of these tasks.
Merchants on the PIC&D marketplace can manage product details, prices, and areas of delivery, make additions, and updates as per their convenience. This flexibility comes along with no requirement of technical knowledge.
Wide field of products available:
The PIC&D marketplace presents seal products made by a variety of Indigenous crafters. Instead of wasting time looking for products all across the Internet, potential customers just browse one marketplace to find all they need within a product category.
Registration is free of direct monthly fees.
Every sale is averaged out by a commission of 13%.
The 13% commission includes: 3% to PayPal (2.9% + $0.30/transaction) and 10% to the Administrator for ongoing marketing, promotion and operations.
