You
Some of these platforms allow a limited number listings at no insertion fee, however other fees do apply. eBay, Etsy, and Shopify renewal fees are charged each time your listing ends and is relisted. This applies to auto relist items as well, so you are repeatedly paying the same fee on the same item, which adds up over time. For example, if one of your items does not sell for 6 months, you can pay $8.40 just in insertion fees just on that item. Renew, Flat, and Refund fees are all per item.
Note: If you are selling services or handmade items, Poshmark is off the table. They are only listed to compare fees.

Fair Shipping for Everyone

Unlike most other platforms, we do not calculate your shipping cost into our final sales fee because we do not feel that is fair to people who are charging honest shipping costs. As long as your shipping fees reflect your actual costs, you will never pay a fee on them. However, penalties will be applied to those who try to ruin it for everyone else. We are fair, you should be too.

Needle in a Very Large Haystack

You have to do your own marketing to be found on any of these platforms. This means either paying them extra to boost your shop and individual items or you will have to personally find ways to alert people that you are out there selling stuff and where, using social media and word of mouth.

With Shopify, you are a freestanding store. You have to make serious efforts for anyone to find you. If you rely on Google search, you are in competition with ever business who sells anything repository similar to your product.

Etsy, eBay, Amazon are very large companies with thousands upon thousands of listings. Finding your product on one of those platforms is like searching for a needle in a very large haystack. You are competing to be found in the search while the “power sellers” and advertisers get shoved to the top of the search no matter how a customer filters their search. Power sellers and advertisers are usually large companies, most of them are manufacturers from outside the country. This is not fair to the average, everyday small business person.

In Plain Sight

UoS does not allow large corporations to list in the marketplace and everyone is equal. What will determine what the customer finds is what they search for, how much detail you give, your presentation, your price, and your reputation once you start receiving reviews. That is fair.

Your People are Here

You do not need to make any kind of effort to find they kind of people who want your product, because they are right here looking for you. The people who visit our website and become members are YOUR PEOPLE, they buy your kind of products and services. We bring them to you.
