Become a TTP approved vendor!

I know how hard it can be to run an online business from personal experience! Sometimes advertising just isn't enough to draw in customers. The Trading Post will be opening an exclusive group for approved sellers. Vendors approved by TTP will receive a special badge to post on their pages to let customers know your products are well made and trustworthy.

How to join:

Vendors must be approved to join this group. You will need to fill out this form:

As well as submit an item to be tested for quality. However, what you send is completely up to you. Vendors will also be asked to provide two sources of feedback (ex Ebay or Etsy.) Once your application has been received, you will receive an email with further instructions.

Once your item is received, it will be professionally critiqued. You will receive an email containing a decline or acceptance to the group. Do not be discouraged if you receive a decline! You may apply to the group once per month and you may opt for a professional and constructive critique to help better your business.

If you are accepted into the group, you will be allowed access to an exclusive group to chat with other approved vendors and exchange ideas. You will also receive the official badge of approval to post on your website, shop or page. I am already planning more benefits for group members in the future!

The badge of approval will be good for one year from the date awarded. Once a year has elapsed, you will have to reapply. However, you will not have to submit another item for approval.

If you have any questions about the ttp approved vendors group or application process please send me a note through the contact tab. Thank you!
