Ideas to inspire
by Tami Nantz | Art of the Pet | 8 months ago
Art of the Pet Marketplace launched in May 2019 and we are actively seeking out quality Artisans and Craftsmen of handmade pet products. Art of the Pet is Live now and you can see the catalog at www.Artofthepet.net

• Read our feature on Voyage Dallas Magazine.
The main rule is that we only want “handmade” pet products for the pet and the pet lover/owner.
Q: What constitutes handmade?
A: Your products must be creative, original, “made entirely by hand, hand-altered, or hand-assembled (not from a kit)” and “handmade by you (the artisan) or by one of your employees. Should not be made on an assembly line, i.e, commodity, mass-produced. The use of sewing machines is just fine!
If you are an Etsy seller you are likely busy! We offer shop Guru setup services in case you don’t have time to set up your own shop. It’s $35 for up to 5 products and that includes setting up your profile and keywords. We would send you the instructions on how to export your listings. Alternatively, you can set up your own shop and we have tutorial videos on our AOTP Youtube channel to help.
We offer commission-free selling for the first month and afterward, the fee would be 6% if you sell something. We currently do not have any listing fees. We use Stripe.com as our payment processor and their fees are comparable to Paypal.
According to Google Analytics, some shops are getting 100 visits per month. The challenge is we need a bigger catalog to get more customers buying! Our platform allows you to blog and write articles to post on our site as well. You can even record videos and post them on our YouTube Channel.
To apply for a seller account send an email to [email protected] ... also, please tell us what you sell and please provide some photos of your work. Due to Insurance restrictions, we are not allowed to sell CBD products at this time.
