"Our Village™" Offers Online Sellers A No-Fee Alternative To The Online Marketplace Etsy

"Our Village™" donates 20% of its revenues to women-focused, non-profit organizations

PR Newswire

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Our Village™ (https://www.ourvillage.com/) announces it now offers worldwide online Sellers "no listing fees/no commissions deducted from sales" when compared to Etsy, the online marketplace. Etsy charges Sellers listing fees per item and recently increased its 3.5% commission to 5% which is deducted from each Etsy shop owner sale.

The Etsy alternative is now "OurVillage.com"!

The Our Village online marketplace is now the logical choice as an alternative for Sellers who would prefer to keep 100% of their sales.

Our Village was formed by two sisters recognizing the need for artisans, crafters, makers, and family-owned small shops to have an online resource that allows them to keep all money from their sales. Shoppers on Our Village love their ability to select many product categories from which to view the unique items for sale from Sellers from around the world. Those shoppers include art & craft lovers, novel gift givers, impulse buyers, pajama surfers, and others who value buying unique gifts for family, friends, or themselves.

Offering unlimited items for display by Sellers for the monthly price of only five dollars, with no listing or commission fees, "Our Village provides an additional benefit for makers and shoppers: we have a strong commitment to non-profit organizations that make a difference," said Our Village Co-founder, Sara Miller Cross. "We are in a David versus Goliath position, in that Our Village is an option now for Etsy shop owners who are tired of paying listing fees and commissions on every sale. Also, for Sellers the first 30 days for their shop on Our Village is free! Most internet Sellers have regular full-time jobs, supplementing their monthly income for their families by selling their products online. Working from home is an increasing desire for many people. Our Village provides the most economical, internet marketplace for Sellers. It supports the Shopping Small movement."

"The mission behind Our Village is to provide support to organizations that are dedicated to making the world a better place. Twenty percent of our gross revenues are donated to nonprofit organizations that provide support to battered or homeless women and their families throughout the country," Rachel Miller, Co-founder of the majority woman-owned company said. "We believe that is the duty of businesses to give back to their communities and Our Village will exceed all expectations as we grow."

Based on the old African proverb "It takes a village". As the worldwide Our Village marketplace grows, so will their charitable efforts as non-profit organizations across America providing support to battered or homeless women and their families are selected to receive financial help.

As the first recipient of their assistance, Our Village chose an organization from its hometown, Chattanooga Room in the Inn. Its purpose is to empower homeless women and children to become self-sufficient by offering a temporary home while providing programs and services necessary to meet their goals.

Sellers are invited to open their Our Village shop. Read below: https://www.ourvillage.com/customer/account/create/
