If you make beautiful hand-crafted goods and would like to generate an income from them, we’d love you to join us at 3friends.
We 3friends are crafters and artists ourselves and when exploring the idea of having a website on which to sell our creations we became aware of just how much admin and expense is involved in setting it up. There is the time that is required to design, market and keep a website current, not to mention the admin involved in packing and sending your goods to customers. Setting up e-commerce – is it worth it for just one product? What happens when there is a complaint or question about your product? – You would have to handle that too. That’s when we decided to do all of this for you so that you have more time to do what makes you happy –creating your beautiful goods.
You’ll find there are a few sites out there that promise you the world and fantastic sales for your goods for free, but you’ll also find that all the administration, delivery costs and queries are over to you and that is really what takes up most of the time, right?
So, here at 3friends, this is our pledge to you:
