Selling on the Faire online marketplace

Getting started on the Faire marketplace

Faire.com is a fairly new B2B marketplace which was established in 2017. The marketplace is used by over 60,000 independent and local shop owners looking to buy unique and artisan goods on a wholesale basis.

To become a seller, you will apply to Faire to be listed on the platform and once approved, you can create your own store profile page. You will typically be charged 25% on the value of a first order with a retailer and this is reduced to 15% for repeat orders.

There is also the option to set your own minimum order quantities. You're responsible for shipping your own orders but shipping costs are covered by the retailer and there are 2 shipping methods available. The first being you ship your orders, cover the cost and this is then refunded or you can use Faire's "ship with Faire" method. Faire will then provide you with shipping labels to access lower rates with carriers such as UPS and FedEx and you won't have to pay upfront shipping costs.
