Your WOWTHANKYOU shop features
Don’t just take it from us, let our sellers do the talking! What sets WowThankYou apart from the competition is the dedication and passion that Magdalena shows for supporting the British crafter. I put a lot of care and research into my products and am very careful where my items are seen. I am very proud to showcase what I do on WowThankYou.
Being a part of WowThankYou is made so easy by having access to my own admin page where I can amend my shop. Finally there’s a support team of genuine friendly people only a click away!
The best thing about the site, from a seller’s point of view is being able to list items indefinitely without hoping they sell in a limited time period having been charged to list them as you do on certain auction sites. It’s great to have all handmade items in one place supporting cottage industries.

We work with UK based artists, designers and crafts people who are as passionate about handmade as we are.
WowThankYou was originally launched in 2009 and from the beginning the emphasis was on supporting creative businesses by providing them with a well-designed website for a fee that’s fair both for you as the creative business and for WowThankYou to invest back to promoting the sellers via our website.
WowThankYou is run by an experienced team, who fully understands the ups anddowns of running a creative business. We want to support small creative businesses not just by helping to sell their work, but also by offering practical advice and tips on how to best present their products and brand to ensure they stand out in a competitive marketplace.
WowThankYou’s outward focus is our returning customer, visitor and any potential customer. Because of that, the way how our website and the products are presented is very important to us.
So we carefully select our sellers to compliment each other and we base our decision on the quality, presentation and brand of each applicant. We want to offer the best we possibly can and try not to duplicate sellers with similar products, unless they are exceptionally good.
But that doesn’t mean that we only accept established businesses. If you are a talented crafts person or designer who is just starting up, we would love to hear from you. You don’t need to have your own website to sell with us, in fact, you can use your shop on WowThankYou to integrate and link directly to your blog instead of investing in stand alone website for your business.
Your handmade shop comes with all e-commerce features you need, practical marketing tools and resources to support you. To keep things simple, we charge 10% commission, which includes VAT (if applicable). The commission fee doesn’t apply to postage and packaging on your products. There are no on-going fees and you pay your commission only when you sell a product.
The payment method is quite simple. When a customer purchases something from your shop, you are paid the full amount directly into your own account. You will receive two emails – one from WowThankYou with order details and one direct from our payment system informing you that the customer has paid. You then make and dispatch the product directly to the customer. Each month we willinvoice you for commission relevant to your account on the sales you’ve made that month (once the amount of commission reaches £1).

The simple answer is: 'No, not everyone!'
First of all, you need to be based in the UK and you need to make or design your own products. We don't like to make unnecessary rules, but you do need to live in the UK and your products need to be handmade or have a handmade or personalised element to them. We understand that you can't handmake every bead if you are creating a necklace, but equally we don't want to support mass produced items made outside the UK. Shopping local and supporting UK based artisans, makers, crafters and artists is our passion, so that's what we like to champion to our customers.
Quality and a good selection of products across our website is very important to us and that is why we review all seller's applications before accepting them on toWowThankYou.
Secondly, we select only the best applicants and we like to set our standards high. Here are a few clues to give you an idea what we base our decision on:
- Clear pictures
- Imaginative products
- Coherent product collection
- Well designed and made products
- Clear business brand
- Professional presentation
- UK based
- Handmade or Personalised
You don’t need to be an established business or sell elsewhere. What’s more important is that you have a business vision and that you are committed to your creative business, whether that’s 5 hrs a week or full time.
Once you become a member of WowThankYou you will be sent via email your username and password details, where you can access your own shop to load, amend or delete products. From this admin area you will also be able to set up your Shop’s profile page, monitor traffic to both your shopfront and individual products, receive and reply to enquiries from customers, check orders and invoices. You have total control over your products and can add and amend however often you wish. There is no limit on how many products you list in your shop. You can create your own discount codes, set up your own categories and have as many variations on individual products as you wish.
