How much does it cost?
It only costs £24 a year to set up a shop and there are no other fees or a contract. However if you close your shop, you will not get a refund. We have set up an affordable, responsive and well optimised selling platform so that any creative business can start selling quickly and effectively.
The only fees you will need to pay are your Paypal or Stripe fees which are taken at the source and not via Shop Handmade.
What are your subscription packages?
We have two subscriptions:
Annual - £24 per year
Monthly - £10 per month - this is our membership which includes your shop, monthly training, a private Facebook group and Canva Pro (this is a group account which will be used for your training and for promotion).
You will receive an email (please check your spam) to inform you that you need to verify your account. There is a link to click on and you will then be congratulated on setting up your account.
You will find lots of information on setting up your shop within the Shop Handmade Help group, with videos and PDFs.
