Selling Crafts for Free on AFOMA Marketplace

Fair income has been my driving force as a fervent advocate for small business owners in the handicraft space. A recent conversation with a Canadian artisan, forced to transition her craft into a part-time endeavour, struck a chord. It highlights the importance of platforms like AFOMA Marketplace, offering artisans a free space to thrive.

However, as much as we desire to provide a free platform for artisans, it’s crucial to ensure their long-term success while maintaining AFOMA’s sustainability. While AFOMA provides artisans a platform to thrive affordably, it’s crucial they contribute to AFOMA’s growth and sustainability as a business.

In this section, I will share insight into how we plan to achieve this balance. So, let’s explore ways you can list your products for FREE!
