ONLINE MARKETPLACE FOR SACRAMENTO MADE
We know that e-commerce can be overwhelming, Sacramento.Shop is an online marketplace designed to help Sacramento creatives build their businesses. We want to take care of the stuff that you don’t want to (getting setup, e-commerce, customer service, sales tax) …all the boring annoying stuff, so you the creative, can just focus on making dope cool stuff. We seek to increase the quality and quantity of of sustainable products produced here in Sacramento. YOU MAKE, WE SELL – Woohoo to Creative Freedom.
How does it work and what is the cost for selling on the Atrium Marketplace platform?
We are a 501c3 nonprofit, so we are not like any other regular retail or e-commerce site. Our goal is to help build our Sacramento creative economy and the future circular economy. 70% of the sale price goes to the creative. The remaining 30% goes to cover the costs of service, storage, shipping, customer service, marketing and maintaining the platform. There is no platform fee.
Creatives focus on making great products and we take care of the stuff you don't want to.
We take care of customer service, sales, marketing, distribution, and all the things that suck when it comes to e-commerce. We want you to make awesome products and bring it to us so we can make it look good online, get it seen, and sold.
How did this start?
The City of Sacramento’s Creative Economy Recovery Grant program funded the initiation of this critical program to help Sacramento creatives pivot in this Covid-19 economy from an in-person sales model to an online shared e-commerce platform.
We have received an overwhelming response to this program, and we are working on securing additional funding to enable us to expand our team so we can get through our waitlist a lot faster. Bare with us we are working diligently around the clock, to make this program accessible for our eco-friendly makers, artists, and creatives.
