There's a new alternative to Tindie
« on: January 09, 2022, 09:50:41 am »
Hi all,

After several months of work, we officially launched lectronz.com, a new marketplace for electronic enthusiasts focusing on the open-hardware and DIY electronics community.

As a start, we are looking for EU-based sellers to join us now, but we plan to open up to sellers worldwide soon.

Try it out: sellers will not pay any platform fees for the first 10 orders they receive!

We decided to launch lectronz.com because we needed some features that we could not find in existing marketplaces for makers today, most notably tools to calculate sales taxes/VAT based on the location of the buyer.

This is a humble start for us, but we are committed to continuing to develop lectronz.com with the input and ideas of the community.
Your feedback is very welcome!

Alain

So Tindie fees appear to be 9%, I assume your goal is somewhere similar?

We take a commission of 5% on sales.
Our payment provider also adds a fee of 1.4% + €0.25 for European card payments and 2.9% + €0.25 for non-European card payments.
See https://lectronz.com/pages/sell for more details.

Right now, we take no commission on sales for the first 10 orders a new seller receives (only card payment fees apply).

so does your service offer deposing money directly to bank accounts in foreign countries like Jordan for example? what fees are expected then?

You'd have to check with stripe.
But, if I need to receive payments in another country I can use Wise, fees are reasonable.

Sellers can be businesses or individuals.

In general, sellers are paid out daily. However, our payment provider may delay the first payout by 7 days or more for security reasons.

Sellers must fulfill the following requirement to sell their products on Lectronz:
    Sellers will need to enroll with our payment provider, Stripe, to receive payouts.
    Sellers must not use contact details and other buyers' personal information for purposes other than the delivery of the product and product support.
    Sellers must own the products they sell. Dropshipping is not permitted.
    Sellers must ship products in a timely manner.
    Sellers must respond to customer requests in a timely manner, ideally within 2 business days.
    Sellers must act in good faith when addressing customer complaints.
    Sellers must accept all terms and conditions outlined in this document, including our refund policy.

You have a Greek flag. I am curious, is this a Greek team that has released this site?
I just noticed they do not have paypal for payouts. That's pretty useless...
Thanks

How is this useless? Doesn't Greece have a modern electronic banking system that's much cheaper than PayPal?

Indeed. Europe has a tightly knit banking system that is much cheaper (like 100 times) compared to using Paypal.
There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.
