CRAFT SHOP – information for vendors

The PCAA has been forced to move its activities online. As part of this we are very keen to set up a virtual art and craft shop. The shop has been set up and can be viewed by clicking HERE.

Now all we need is your art or craft creations to sell. There will be no need to “sit with the shop” and we hope that once we build up a good level of stock interest will grow. It is really up to the artists and crafters.

If you are interested in joining this venture please read the terms and conditions below.

Membership

All vendors must be members of the PCAA. Membership is not expensive and has many other advantages. To find out how to become a member please click here.

Commission

PCAA will not take any fee to show the items on the site but will take 20% of the purchase price from all sales as commission.

DISPATCH

We will only accept orders from the UK. It is the responsibility of the vendor to wrap and dispatch goods. You may want to take potential postage and commission into account when pricing your goods. Royal Mail site is easy to use https://www.royalmail.com/sites/royalmail.com/files/2020-12/royal-mail-our-prices-1-january-2021.pdf

The artist must then wrap and send the goods. Postage should be free for the customer at this stage. See above about pricing goods in the shop

Once the goods have been dispatched the vendor must inform the PCAA. This will trigger your payment of cost of goods less 20% commission.
