Product Questions:

Here are some questions to think about before you begin adding up your products.

  • Do any of your products have variations such as color, design, material, flavour, fragrance, size, etc.?
  • Will you be charging sales tax on your products? If so, will you be charging tax on the full sale or just on the shipping portion?
  • You’ll need to enter the quantity you have available for each product you list. Would you want to be notified by email when your stock reaches a certain level?
  • Do you have any products that you would want to sell individually and limit to one per order?
  • Do you have products you want to link together? These can be displayed to the shopper on the product page for cross-selling and at checkout for upselling.
  • Will you be offering free shipping or flat rate shipping? If you decide to use the country table rate to set your shipping, you will need to set prices for every region you select.

Support / Help

This is a very different craft show than what you may be used to. Please do not worry, we have help available should you need it. In an online event we have to set up our booths by adding photos and description of our products. This may seem confusing or daunting at first, but once you add a couple of products you will find it is rather easy. If you have experience with online shops already, such as Etsy or your own online store, you may need no additional help setting up your booth on the CanadaCrafters.ca platform. However, we have help files and can assist you regardless of your level of experience.
