Farmnivorous exists to make local shopping more convenient, and that includes your craft fair and artist market.
Whether it's a one-time event or a recurring thing, we would love to create a marketplace for you. We can also create an evergreen marketplace for local artisans in a given neighborhood or shopping district.
Easily list your creations for sale. Shoppers can browse and buy from all of the listed artists in a given marketplace with a single checkout. Give the public more time to browse and buy.
Pick-up and delivery options are flexible; If businesses decide to coordinate, delivery or curbside services can be managed for the market as a whole. Alternatively, sellers can set and manage their own pick-up or delivery offerings.
The Farmnivorous Marketplace application is very flexible.
We can easily create a marketplace for a group of sellers and list it on farmnivorous.com. The more sellers per marketplace, the more interesting it will be to shoppers and the more we will promote it.
A marketplace can be managed in a variety of different ways. It can collect orders for multiple businesses for pick up or delivery on a specific date. Delivery can be customized in terms of fees and delivery options such as day, time, zip code. A marketplace can also be set up as an evergreen market, in which sellers list and de-list their products when they please and manage their own pick up or delivery logistics for their products individually. Farmnivorous is flexible and eager to support creative entrepreneurial types.
It is very easy to get started. Tell us what marketplace you would like to join or tell us what you'd like to create. We can have a marketplace ready for you in as little as 1 to 2 days. You open a standard account with Stripe.com or connect your current one to Farmnivorous. We help you format your logo. You input your products easily. Soup to nuts, you can be up in as little as 3 days with no up-front cost.
There is no cost to create or join a Farmnivorous marketplace and list products. Farmnivorous will eventually charge a small commission on orders placed of 2-3%, but is waiving this through 2020 at least. Sellers pay their own credit card fees of 2.9% plus $0.30 per order.
Seller's receive their cash directly in their bank accounts by Stripe. Farmnivorous does not manage or have access to your money or banking info.
