If you’re not sure yet if it’s right for you, this useful information may help:

DO I MEET THE CRITERIA TO APPLY?

Our aim here is to support start-ups, micro and small businesses who specialise in selling letterbox gifts*. That means if you run a business (sole-trader, ltd company or partnership) with between 1 – 50 employees and you sell products and gifts that are the right size for letterbox friendly delivery, then we would love to have you on board!

*By letterbox gifts we mean gifts that fit the measurements of a Royal Mail large letter, or small parcel no bigger than 38mm deep to ensure they can be delivered through the average sized letterbox. You can sell slightly larger items too but you will need to make it clear on the product listing that the item is larger than letterbox sized and may not fit through the letterbox. We would recommend not selling any products that are larger than 80mm deep.

WHAT FEE'S ARE INVOLVED?

For small businesses, every penny counts! And so we’re proud to offer a competitive fee structure, as outlined below:
  • No listing fees.
  • We take a 6% commission from each sale.
  • The payment processing fee is 1.4% +20p (we use Stripe as our payment processing provider and this is their fee that is applied to each transaction made)
That means for example on a £10 sale, we will take 60p, Stripe will take 34p and you will be left with £9.06.

DO I HAVE TO SIGN UP TO A MEMBERSHIP?

UPDATE: FREE MEMBERSHIP AND UNLIMITED PRODUCT LISTINGS FOR ALL UNTIL AT LEAST JANUARY 2022.

We do have paid membership options available BUT you are more than welcome to choose our free membership option which allows you to sign up and start selling up to 5 items in your own personalised online shop front. Our free membership is a great way to get started and see if selling on our platform is right for you. If you love it and want to start adding more items to sell, you can simply upgrade to one of our paid membership options at any time, with no minimum term commitment.

I RUN MY BUSINESS ALONE, AND SOMETIMES I AM NOT AVAILABLE TO TAKE ORDERS - WOULD THIS BE A PROBLEM?

Absolutely not! We know exactly what it’s like trying to run a small business on your own, whilst also juggling a million other things and quite frankly, sometimes you need a break! So if you need to switch off your shop at any time that’s OK – you can simply put it into holiday mode, leave an away message and take the time you need. All we ask is that you fulfil any open orders and mark them as completed before putting your shop into holiday mode.

We hope we’ve covered any questions you may have had about selling with us, but if there’s anything you want to ask please email support@theletterboxgiftcompany.co.uk and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

If you’re ready to get started you can register to sell with us here.
