We provide the tools to promote our Artisans and their products to your audience

 

We give you your own storefront to our Handmade Marketplace, filled with an unlimited selection of handmade-to-order goods, and customised to your brand to blend seamlessly with your existing website content.

We distribute posters, leaflets, and press releases 

 

We can supply you with a tablet and promotional display stand, encouraging customers to browse and place orders from your entire online store right there in your place of business.

 

Our Sample Product Roadshow keeps your display areas alive and inviting to customers with fresh product samples delivered every 1, 3, or 6 months.

HOW IT WORKS

 

1

 

Orders placed through your storefront come straight to us for handling, and the customer’s payment goes to our escrow account.

 

2

 

Each Artisan works directly with their customer to complete the order and arrange delivery of the finished item.

 
 

3

 

As soon as we receive confirmation that the customer has received their order escrow releases your commission to your payment account.

What does it cost?

Community Partner Account

 

We charge a small administration fee of £10 per month, to manage your account and provide our services – maintaining the platform and producing marketing material.

This fee is deducted from your commission earned – so you’re not out of pocket.

 

Optional extras

 

Tablet kiosks

We provide a selection of kiosk solutions for a small monthly rental fee.  You can choose to rent a stand with or without the tablet (if you already own one) and we will discuss the best solution for your place of business.

ABOUT US

 

Artisan Business is a joint venture initiative supporting small independent enterprises.

Our platform effectively gives Artists and Crafters a nationwide sales and marketing team working for you to promote your business and collect orders for your products while you busy yourself getting creative, – no staff to employ, no wages to pay, just a reasonable – earned! Seller’s commission to pay on successful sales.

And it works both ways!

By putting our marketplace on show with our Community Partners, we’re effectively giving them the biggest and most diverse product catalogue for their customers to order from – with no stock to purchase, store, or handle.

Best of all!

We’re putting handmade goods right in front of our target audiences, and encouraging them to buy from small businesses in their communities, with all the choice and convenience of buying online.  Which means the buyers are happy, and those sales are earned by small, local, hardworking businesses.
