Artisans Cooperative has launched a revolutionary new way for buyers and sellers of handmade products worldwide to interact: “a co-op alternative to Etsy.” The marketplace is now open for shoppers looking for authentic handmade goods this holiday season and for artisans looking for a new selling platform.
We’ll say it: Handmade items are Art. And whether they’re functional items (“applied arts”) or decorative (“fine art”), art touches us more profoundly and deeply than most other things. In this post, we’ll explore why that is in interviews with artisans and supporters.
Pricing is one of the hardest decisions artisans have to make. In this post we’ll explain why artisans charge what they do for their handmade products.
In this post, we’ll talk about how we came up with our sales commissions, and what they are.
Sales commissions are the Coop’s primary source of income. When setting fees, it was important for Artisans Cooperative to weigh the marketing and financial risks of high and low fees, for both the longevity of the cooperative but also fairness and transparency for the artisan.
Artisans Cooperative set up a “donation jar” for donations to the co-op, and artisans with their own Shopify store can do the same – for the co-op, for another favored cause, or for their own tips!
