Commissions

When do I get paid?

Sellers get paid after the order is fulfilled and the tracking number is added to the Seller Portal. The sooner you ship, the sooner you get paid!

How do I start selling?

How do I let buyers create a pattern bundle with my patterns?

When posting your patterns for sale, add the product tag 'bundle.' This will add your patterns to the list of all patterns which can be bundled for a discount. You don't need to add this tag to all of your patterns if you have some more valuable patterns.

How do I indicate that my fabric can be cut to length?

Add the product tag 'yardage' to any fabric which can be cut to a length chosen by the buyer. This will add the fabric to the page showing all fabrics which can be cut to length. Be sure to indicate the unit of measurement on the product posting (one yard or half a yard, for example; we recommend half a yard).

How does the shipping flat fee work?

Buyers pay a flat fee for shipping and 100% of the fee goes to the sellerHowever, sellers are responsible for actual shipping costs. Because shipping will often be more than the flat fee, we recommend that sellers add a bit to the price of each product to account for actual shipping costs. 

What is the shipping policy?

Orders should be shipped within 2 business days using 1-3 day shipping, such as USPS First Class or Priority Mail. All shipments must have a tracking number. They must also have insurance if the order is over $10.

What about sales tax?
