Looking for a new avenue to sell your products and expand your markets? Become a Vendor on Everything Bear to begin selling your products online!
Everything Bear is a new venture from husbands Ian Kullhem and Phil Cardenas who, along with friends Brent Gorwin and JD Gipson, have created an online version of the bear event vendor markets. The store is designed so that anyone can sign up, create a vendor account and publish their own products for sale — All through one centralized online store!
Because of COVID-19, numerous bear events all around the globe have been cancelled or postponed. This has directly affected the livelihood of many small businesses that depend heavily on sales from those events. Everything Bear is a great way to still support your fellow bear businesses by purchasing some of their products online!
Everything Bear works on a commission model — they don’t collect any recurring fees to sign up and list your products for sale! You are also able to set your own prices and shipping costs. For this reason, Everything bear is risk free! They only make money when they sell something of yours, with a base commission rate of 10% of the product price. Flat rates may be set in some instances on a case-by-case basis.
Vendors never have to worry about credit card transactions or sales taxes. All of this will be handled by Everything Bear. You just ship your order out and they will send you the funds from the order, minus the commission fee! No muss, no fuss.
The overall goal of Everything Bear is to help vendors get more business. To accomplish this, they have created various ways to help vendors market their businesses, including vendor spotlights and callouts about new products. They also feature vendors and products through social media and newsletters!
Each vendor gets their logo listed on the Everything Bear home page, with a specific landing page showcasing all of their products. All products are categorized together, creating a centralized marketplace allowing customers to browse across various market products at once.
Signing up to become an Everything Bear vendor is a super easy process! A name, an email address and some basic info about your business is all that’s required to get started. They are also available to help vendors get going as well with any level of assistance they may need, including doing video conferencing and screen shares.
Whether you are just starting out and have never sold online before, or you have an already existing web presence, Everything Bear is the perfect place for you to sell your products!
