Sacramento.Shop was built and designed to help Sacramento creatives easily access e-commerce resources, to get a competitive leg up with online marketing. The Atrium, through Sacramento.Shop takes care care of the boring, annoying stuff that comes with e-commerce, like setup, marketing, storage, shipping, delivery, customer service, and sales tax) so Sacramento Creatives can focus on making really cool stuff.

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 that is needed for humanity to sustain life on this planet. 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.
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.
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.
