Frequently Asked Questions

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • How many orders will I get?

    This turbocharged e-commerce platform is mighty powerful, but a lot of that depends on you. We’ll be bringing you millions of potential customers, but how you harness that audience lies in the work you put into it: thoughtful pricing, tempting photography and descriptions, and your own imaginative marketing and promotions. We’re here to support you through the process, to share what we know that works for other Makers, and to offer optional services to help further grow your business.

  • How will you promote me?

    Not only is the platform powerful, but the industry-leading marketing professionals behind it are best in class. You and your products will benefit from our investment in a wide range of digital promotion, award-winning social media, and national and regional campaigns that will introduce you to new fans from all over the region and the country. The spotlight will shine especially brightly on the most compelling Makers and products.

  • Shipping is not my specialty. How can you help?

    Totally. First, we have a great Maker support program called Trade and Prosper, which is designed to help local and small businesses develop and grow. We also have market managers in our regions who love supporting their local Makers. Our platform also has all the gizmos and wizardry you’ll need to automatically calculate shipping rates and print shipping labels. Just select your preferred shipping carriers  such as USPS, FedEx, and UPS, and off you go!

  • Why should I sell on Doorstep Market when I already sell on my own site?

    If you already sell on your own site, then you know how important it is to reach more and more potential customers each week. It takes considerable time, commitment and investment to reach a larger and larger audience. We do much of that work for you. So much so that in fact many of our Makers will see the value in selling only on Doorstep Market so that they can focus on what they do best: Make!

  • How do I get paid?

    First you’ll need a Business PayPal account, which you can sign up for here. We love PayPal as our payment processor because its secure, brand-recognized, cost-effective, and fast. Every time you make a sale, your funds will be transferred directly to your Business PayPal account.
