Consignment is an arrangement where the artisans gives the handicrafts to the consignor/operation without getting payment for the handicrafts until the items are sold.
Please contact the consignor directly with your questions.
Thank you for your interest in working with Novica and our talented group of artisans around the world. We currently work with artisans in the following countries: Brazil, Central America, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Mexico and Thailand. We work with each artisan/group on a case by case basis but the general format is consignment. Payments are made every 2 weeks and we track the sales (as well as give many reports for projected sales to help with production). If something hasn’t sold after 6 months, we review with the artisan to determine the best course of action. That might be a sale, updating photos, promotions, etc. Our goal is that artisans sell as well as possible and we’re there to guide them in that process.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
If you are an artisan living and creating in one of these countries, you can submit your art work to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be in touch with you within 2 weeks. Please include images. If you have not been contacted after 2 weeks please resubmit your contact information.
