http://www.CraftMe.co is a growing collection of small quality NZ art and craft online gallery shops, where you can showcase your art, craft, services and supplies in one location, tell more about yourself, sell your items, accept credit card orders and invoice your customers. Moreover, it is totally FREE to buy and sell on CraftMe.
We want to help our fellow artistic kiwis to market themselves, in a quick affordable and effective way. CraftMe is not another second hand goods market (a garage sale), but a quality premium marketplace for everything unique. It is a place to buy and sell all things unique, handmade, vintage, handcraft and artisan items, home crafts, hobbies and art & craft supplies.
CraftMe is a distinctive art and craft online marketplace, a collection of boutique kiwi art and craft shops. You can shop in thousands of categories, from photography and printed art on canvas, to fashion accessories and jewellery, and even handmade soap and home baked cupcakes. It doesn’t matter what you create- we want to showcase anything but the ordinary!
We want you to share your story with people around New Zealand (we also have international customers), and help us to create this collection of quality vibrant artists galleries and handmade items marketplace. When you shop on CraftMe, you support kiwi artists and craftsmen and sustain our local communities.
With more and more people researching a potential purchase of art online, it is essential that all artists and craftsmen have an online presence and the ability to process online sales for those customers who are comfortable purchasing in this way.
With CraftMe you can have your own online gallery storefront, when you present yourself to quality buyers, with your own logo and information pages that you design by yourself. Then, you can sell your items online, accept visa credit cards straight to your NZ bank account, and invoice your customers directly with your details.
CraftMe is not limited to products only- If you have an artistic or creative service, you can open a store as well. Advertise your studio or gallery, your art lessons, private tutoring, or any other design services. You can advertise examples of your work and show them in your online store gallery. Your name is out there in the marketplace, gaining HIGH ranking on Google, so when people shop for other items they are likely to find you as well, as in the real life.
It is important to recognise that many potential customers use CraftMe to find out more detailed information and then travel to a physical gallery or shop to make a purchase. Consequently the value of branded online store cannot be measured solely on the number of transactions done online.
