The Women in Business Regional Network has launched an online marketplace for those who would like to sell their goods and services online, but don’t have the technology or finances to get an online platform up and running.
Founder Carolyn Jeffrey said the marketplace had been fast-tracked and offered to members with a no-charge signup in response to COVID-19 and the fact that many were impacted by the closure of their physical shopfronts.
“With increasing use of the internet to do our shopping and even to access services, including online appointments, it’s vital for many businesses to adapt to the changes quickly,” Carolyn said.
“The marketplace can be used by members and others to sell goods and services including food, gifts, arts & crafts, consultancy services, downloads, training courses, cosmetics, clothing and more.”
For members, there’s no charge to setup on the marketplace, nor to add products and services, but a 10 per cent commission is charged on each sale to help cover costs.
For non-members, an annual fee of $70 will be charged in addition to the 10 per cent commission.
