Vendor Expectations & Agreement

We promise that our virtual marketplace will be well curated, organized and truly community centered.

We will provide a content calendar, with fun themes, segments, and promotions. Including, but not limited to; product and collection posts, maker spotlights, shout outs, collaborations, promos, giveaways and more.

This will NOT be another ISO (in search of) group, but instead will feature an ISO day, ie; ISO Saturdays.

Our dedicated admin team will be there to support you. Not to police, discipline and exclude you. We believe local borders do not end in Durham Region.

Registered vendors have the option to use our online Boutique www.themakershub.shop for checkout. This is not mandatory. Sellers can use their own methods of checkout.

Examples of approved selling options;

  • our website
  • your own website
  • Etsy
  • bill by direct invoice
  • Facebook business page DM's

Examples of non-approved selling options

  • personal PMs
  • Instagram
