Vendor Fees & Stall Etiquette
Vendor Fees & Stall Etiquette
Effective Date: 17 Mar 18
If you'd like to become a vendor/open a stall on this website, and are not sure how to do so, or you have a few questions you'd like answered, then you've come to the right place.
BAREANDBEYOND.COM enables you to have an online presence without the typical costs of running a website. We promise to promote your products online and offline, in line with your requirements, and we currently provide this service for free.
NOTE: We do not partner with businesses that sell High Street brands.
To be eligible to open a store with us, you need to be a niche business selling one or more of the following:
1. 100% Natural Skincare
2. 100% Natural Haircare
3. 100% Natural Makeup
4. Bespoke Handmade Fashion and/or Accessories
5. Books Promoting a Natural and Organic Lifestyle
1. Stall Location
It doesn't matter where you are located. We accept applications from eligible businesses worldwide. However, we reserve the right to reject any application that does not meet our requirements on moral/ethical grounds.
2. The Application Process
The application process involves completing the Vendor Application form, which can be found here. Please include as much information as you can about your business (in the Description box) and then submit the form.
Once the form has been submitted, you will receive a decision via email. We aim to respond within 24 - 48hrs so please be patient.
If you are already a registered user (e.g. you have a customer account) and would like to start selling with us, you will need to complete the Vendor Application form as described above. (NOTE: In the vendor application form, you can enter the same email address you use as a customer or you can use a completely different one)
3. Vendor Fees
We charge 3% commission on the price of each product sold on this website (excluding any payment processing and exchange rate* fees)
At present, we do not charge any product listing fees. This means you can upload as many products as you like for free. Should we subsequently decide to start charging product listing fees or add any other fees, e.g. advertising fees, we will provide you with ample notice of this decision.
*NOTE: Customers are able to view products on this website in various currencies. This means that they can also make payment in these very same currencies. If a customer chooses to pay for a product in their local currency, any exchange rate fees incurred will be borne by the vendor. We will provide complete transparency over the fee amounts as listed in our statements from our third party payment providers.
4. Vendor Payment
Vendors/Stall owners receive their monies within 5 - 10 working days after a customer places an order on our website.
5. Stall Management
Once you've been accepted as a vendor, we will provide you with a guide on how to manage your stall, e.g. how to access your dashboard, how to create and delete products, etc. And if you're not tech savvie, we can help create your products for you, based on the product descriptions and images that you provide to us.
6. Product Images
Product images must be clear and of good quality. They don’t necessarily have to be taken by a professional. A good camera coupled with a bit of creativity (on your part) will do the job nicely! Please note that all product images are manually reviewed before they are published on this website.
