|What is the Shop Arizona Marketplace?|
Shop AZ is a one-of-a-kind eCommerce site that will showcase unique products, art, gift cards, and more from small businesses across Arizona. A shopper can pick out a candle for a friend, a gift card for a parent, and treats for a pet, all in one easy to navigate website purchase.
There is only a one-time setup fee of $100 as long as you maintain an active membership with Local First Arizona. Local First will not take a percentage of sales from any purchases. Instead, we will ask customers when they check out if they want to add a donation during their purchase. Local First will use those bonus dollars to maintain the website, staff, and continue providing resources to the community.
List your ten best products! Not only do we want to aggregate your products collectively, but we want to direct traffic back to your website. Start by placing your top 10 selling products on the Shop Arizona Marketplace. You will have complete control of how to present and price your products!
You will be responsible for shipping items, managing inventory, and customer communications. Local First is actively collecting the best resources to provide you with best practices such as shipping, managing inventory, photographing products, and more. We are always available to you as support!
A customer will pay for their purchase, and Local First will receive the funds. Then, weekly on Wednesday, you will receive a disbursement of the orders (including taxes and shipping) you have marked complete.
