We’re always looking for ways we can help our readers make money. That’s why we just launched the MoneyMagpie Marketplace. Your new website to buy and sell locally! Whether you are selling a service, expertise, crafts, or just your unused items, you can get set up right away and start making money in minutes with MoneyMagpie.
What is the MoneyMagpie Marketplace?
The marketplace is a great tool for anyone looking to easily sell online. Don’t use multiple services to buy, sell, and find qualified services and find them all in one place. They also know that everything you buy through the market supports other money stars like you.
The marketplace is an easier way for our MoneyMagpies to make money. Just set up a few offers, enter your banking details and you can see the money come in.
What can I sell on the marketplace?
As long as it is legal to sell in the UK, you can sell it on the MoneyMagpie Marketplace. We have two options for sellers to either sell a service or to set up a “shop” to sell your products. Of course, you can do both if you want. You can also set up multiple stores if you want to create different stores for different product categories. Perhaps you’re an avid handyman and could set up one shop selling your handcrafted items and then set up another to sell used items that were rediscovered in a clearance.
Create a shop
With MoneyMagpie Marketplace you can easily set up a virtual shop online. You can add as many offers as you want to your shop. An entry remains active until you remove it. So if you have multiple copies of something that you want to sell, you can leave the listing until all of them are sold.
Creating each listing for your shop is very easy. Give it a name and a detailed description and also add up to 4 photos. What you want to sell is entirely up to you. Be it art prints, graphic designs, casual cakes, used clothing or used technology. Almost anything you find unwanted at home can be sold online for a little bit of money!
Sell a service
The other option is to sell services, although you can sell both products and services.
However, you can list anything you want, even if it doesn’t fall directly into one of these categories. The services you offer can be anything from babysitting to walking the dog in your spare time to doing DIY and helping around the house. If you are a business professional with skills in a specific field, why not sell them? Many freelancers and businesses need help with SEO, coding, content creation, content writing, website design, photography, editing, marketing … the list goes on!
But if you have a bit of free time or are looking for ways to make money, why not brainstorm areas you are trained in or specific skills that you might be able to use to make some cash.
All you need to do is sign up with an account on the MoneyMagpie marketplace to get started.
Using the Marketplace Channels
We have set up different categories or channels on the MoneyMagpie marketplace to make it easier to buy and sell certain items. If you have something special in mind, or just want to browse, you can find things easily and look at a number of products in different categories.
At the moment we have 4 main categories for the sale of services:
- Health, beauty and fitness
- Business services
- Help around the house; and
- Classes and online learning
And for the sale of products, your offers can be broken down into the following areas:
- Handmade arts and crafts
- VHS tapes, CDs and DVDs
- Old and unwanted technology
- Secondhand and vintage clothing; and
- The sink for everything else
As a seller, the channels can help you earn more. If you make sure you select the appropriate categories when creating a listing, people can easily find what you are selling. You also want to make sure that you include as much detail as possible in your listings. The better your description and photos of your product, the more likely you are to make a sale.
Costs and commissions
As a seller on the MoneyMagpie marketplace, each entry can be published free of charge. There is 8% commission on every purchase, but you only have to pay this when you make a sale so you never lose. However, to celebrate the launch of the marketplace, the first 50 sellers will not have to pay any fees for 3 months! The only fee is charged by the Stripe payment platform we use which charges a 1.4% + £ 0.20 per transaction fee for processing. Unfortunately, this fee is Stripe’s and not ours, so we can’t change it.
In addition to this seller bonus, we’re giving the first 50 shoppers on their first purchases a £ 5 discount. Once you have completed the transaction, all you need to do is email a copy of your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then issue your refund immediately.
The marketplace is a great place to make sales, with very competitive prices and fees compared to other online sellers. So why not start here and start making money with MoneyMagpie today?
