How It Works

Seller Program

Art of the Pet Marketplace and Art of the Pet LOCAL!

Art of the Pet Artisan Seller Program:

Thank you for considering Art of the Pet as an avenue to market your handmade Pet products. Since we are just getting started, we have initially established an application process. We are currently taking Makers of handmade pet supplies and products that are crafted for the pet and pet lover. We are also accepting applications for our Art of the Pet Local marketplace in the event you want to have a virtual store to offer your pet-related services.  Each program is outlined below.   

Advantages of selling on Art of the Pet:

  • 100% Pet Niche Marketplace with handmade pet products | Captive audience of pet lovers
  • AOTP Local will offer pet service providers and local artists and craftsmen the ability to have a virtual storefront at a reasonable cost.
  • Leave the advertising to us! We will be promoting our presence through all digital channels for the widest exposure. Of course, having our artist community assist in promoting allows us to cast a wider net.
  • Ability to blog and write articles to draw more traffic to your virtual store.
  • Manage your own store with the ability to interact with your customers, track the sale, and inventory management with our seller tools.
  • A secure platform that will protect privacy for you and your customers.
  • Shop setup services available for a nominal fee in case you are too busy!

Art of the Pet Marketplace: Program Information and Application process:

Ideally suited for Makers and Artists that want to offer handmade pet goods and supplies for the pets and the pet lovers of the world.

Requirements to qualify for the program -products must be handmade, not mass-produced.

What constitutes handmade? 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 and other tools required to create the goods and supplies are just fine! ☺

How to apply: you can type an email message to get the instructions sent to you automatically: [email protected]  Ideally we like to see pictures of your work if we have not personally reached out to you in the past.
