My Community Made does provide all the tools you need to sell your products online, but we’re perfectly happy to allow you to direct users to your own site to finish purchases. Just set up the product as an external product and link it to the product page on your site or the marketplace you’d like to finish the transaction with.
Starting July 7th, 2022, My Community Made now handles sales tax on behalf of sellers.
My Community Made makes most of it’s revenue from vendors who choose to pay the $5/month subscription in order to increase their product cap from 5 products to 50 products.
My Community Made also makes money through the display of Google Ads on the site. As well as from vendors paying to advertise their product at the top of the shop page.
With our team also being made up of artists, we also sell our own products on the platform as well as vendors.
