No it doesn’t. It is FREE to open a shop with us.

We charge no listing fees and no monthly fees!

We have a flat, simple final value fee of only 10% for each sale (shipping is excluded) – so you pay nothing until you sell an item.

All payments are securely processed through PayPal and their transaction fee’s are just 3.4% + 20p

Nearly everyone who buys or sells online has PayPal so we believe it is most beneficial for both our buyers and sellers for us to use PayPal as our payment processor. Sellers are required to sign up for or use an existing free account with PayPal in order to receive payments on our marketplace. PayPal’s transaction fees are very competitive: has no monthly fees, simply 3.4% + 20p (as of January 1, 2017). Fees are reduced if your sales volume exceeds £15,000/month.

With PayPal, you can accept payments from PayPal and pretty much any credit card or debit card, so it is a no-brainer really.

Your shop URL is always: https://www.bettergettothemarket.com/shop/YOUR-SHOP-NAME

Your shop name is the name which you chose when you opened your shop.  If you ever change your shop name on BGTTM, your URL will change to the new name. We strongly urge you not to change your shop name once you have everything set up as any links that we or you create to promote your shop will no longer work.

If you have a space between words in your shop name, then your shop url will have a hyphen ‘-‘  symbol in the place of the space (Your Butcher Shop will be: https://www.bettergettothemarket.com/shop/your-butcher-shop)

When promoting your business you can share this link and send visitors directly to your shop page.
