Can you Make Money Selling Online through NuMonday?

What is NuMonday?

NuMonday is a website which markets itself as ‘The Home of British Makers’ where you can sell your handmade and hand crafted items online.

What Makes it Different?

Where NuMonday varies from other websites such as Etsy and Folksy is that the sellers received 100% of the sale price for their products.

NuMonday do not charge commission, transaction or listing fees.

This site and post may contain affiliate links from Amazon, Bluehost, Grammarly, Zazzle, WordPress, Shutterstock, Society6, Teepublic, Redbubble and if you click on a link and purchase a product from that website I will earn a small fee (which will go towards getting me Out of the Office!)


Instead of taking a commission, NuMonday charge a monthly fee for selling on their site. At the time of writing, this is £7.

Also, it’s worth remembering that the payment provider Stripe charges fees which are currently 1.4% + 20p per transaction with European cards and 2.9% + 20p with non-European cards.

How Does It Work

  1. You open a shop on NuMonday.
  2. You list the items for sale.
  3. NuMonday markets the products to customers.
  4. Customers order and pay through NuMonday’s checkout.
  5. You receive payment instantly.
  6. NuMonday email you so you can fulfill the order.
  7. You send the order to the customer.


You can still sell on other sites.

You can sell personalised items.

You can sell digital downloads

You can cancel your subscription at any time.


Unlike Print On Demand sites, you have to handle all the order and despatch procedures yourself.


Have people heard of NuMonday? It you take one look at Facebook you can see that 3.5 million people have liked Etsy’s Facebook page but only 56 thousand have liked NuMonday’s Facebook page.

Checkout the stats on the NuMonday listing pages. They don’t seem to have a huge amount of views, but, on the other hand, you only need one view to make a sale.

Is it Worth It?

It’s up to you. However, I’ve heard of Ebay; I’ve heard of Etsy; I’ve heard of Folksy, but I’ve never heard of NuMonday and probably lots of potential customers haven’t heard of it either. And if they haven’t heard of it, you’re not going to make many sales.

Footfall is everything. Imagine Etsy has a store on the online equivalent of Oxford Street, and NuMonday is perhaps based in a sleepy High Street full of charity shops. Who’s going to make the most sales?


Consider All the Options

You may like to consider selling online at other sites such as Zazzle or Saatchi Art or Society6.

You could also test the water at Teepublic – please note that if you sign up through this link I would get a small commission!

  1. Do you mind if I share another alternative?

    I’ve just launched, a new marketplace for crafters, designers and artists to sell online without the usual high fees or set up costs.

    Simply put, it was made for crafters, BY crafters. No set up fees, no fixed-term etc.

    If you have any questions please do let me know!

      • Thanks Michelle ☺ Let’s see what this year brings! Nice article though.

        I think you’re right – smaller marketplaces will always struggle vs Etsy/Folksy. But then some marketplaces are helping the vendor’s advertise or actively supporting them via groups. One thing I love about crafting is the community spirit behind it.
