Frequently Asked Questions

If there's ever a dispute or misunderstanding with a client, do you intervene on our behalf?

We which not to but might.

One month notice.

For payment, can I give you a current account or does it have to be a credit card?

We receive the money from the client and EFT it to your current account.

I see there was something about vat in the contract?

We don’t take ownership of your items meaning you are selling on our platform and must handle your part of tax and vat where applicable. We’ll do so on the 10% part that we receive.

My company is still very small so I do not charge vat, how does that effect me?

Of course yes.

Can I contact the vendor of the product directly?

Yes, you can send the relevant vendor a message from the product page.

How does it work if I order from more than one vendor?

Extra courier costs will be added. Our vendors are located all over the country and they are the ones who will pack and send you your order from wherever they are.

Why must I make use of to advertise my handmade products?

Who and what is

We are a group of people who make different things but sell as one. If you love craft as opposed to factory then you know that the only place to find such treasures is at your local flea market. Either that or try and hunt them down, one by one on the internet. Yes, strolling around at the flea market is super relaxing, but it is not always convenient is it. TheMarketplace.SHOP is convenient and inspiring. We have beautiful stuff and we keep on adding more every week as more vendors join in.
