Guelph Etsy Sellers: Consider joining Guelph Market

Posted by Brian Kwok on

Hey Etsy Sellers!

Are you based in Guelph and only sell locally? 

It's time to look into switching to a more socially conscious platform to sell to the Guelph community! 

Not only does the commission go back to a local small business owner, like yourself, every sale made through Guelph Market helps to fund our monthly fundraisers and gives other emerging businesses the opportunity to start for free.

Unlike Etsy, all vendors on Guelph Market will be featured on the menu, meaning even though you may be competing with other people, customers can still easily find you!

Guelph Market automatically takes care of promoting your products across Facebook and Twitter so that we can get the most amount of eyes on your work. This does not cost you any additional fees. 

 Maybe you saw our 23% + $0.30 commission rate and went... oh my god, how am I ever going to make money?! 

Take a look below at the breakdowns of the fees on Guelph Market and Etsy. You'll find that our rates are extremely competitive and the services we offer better for small businesses like yourself!
