Notonthehighstreet.com list...

...everything ‘from jewellery and clothing to homeware, experience days and more.’ They're openminded about unique product offerings of all types and are constantly looking to further diversify their product mix, meaning you'll find an incredibly broad array of goods listed on their site. So, don't be put off if your product range is a bit niche. If you're an independent designer‐maker, designer‐manufacturer or a small boutique retailer with a vision, you could be just what notonthehighstreet are looking for!

Product Pictures

A picture is worth a thousand words... and Not on the High Street's experts assert that they only work with businesses that ‘knock their socks off.’ That alone is a reason to ensure you include the highest quality snaps you can in your application. While most brands will have product images on their website already, it's worth evaluating their suitability before you apply.

A memorable product image that tells a story and gives an idea of the craft involved is sure to get you noticed by notonthehighstreet's experts. While professionally shot images aren't necessary, good quality pics are a must, so don't be afraid to spend some time getting your image proposition right! If necessary, be prepared to dust off your camera and get creative!

Learn from other sellers

It's a good idea to learn from other companies already on notonthehighstreet. Simply search for your niche or product category on site to get a real insight into the types of images, descriptions, style and feel they're looking for in new sellers. It's also a good way to assess whether your product images are up to scratch before applying.

Application process

Application process

Step Two

Your products are great, your pics are glossy, your pitch is on point; you've been invited to join ‘ notonthehighstreet’... what now?

The next step is to pay a one‐off joining fee of £199. After payment, you have 3 months to get your listings live on‐site. Then, for every one of your products sold on the marketplace, notonthehighstreet take a 25% cut.

Although these costs may seem a little unusual, notonthehighstreet' cut covers the integration of your products into their marketing mix (including SEO and PR) and a range of business guidance and support services to help you succeed is also included. Plus, you're not charged to list new products like on other online marketplaces, so... swings and roundabouts!
