About Wayuu Market Fees

 

Why do you pay a Wayuu Market fee?

You might be wondering what we do and why do we charge a fee for our services. Hence we would love to tell you how everything works and how you contribute.

 

Why did we start?

Wayuu communities live far from city centers and produce thousands of beautiful, unique, handmade items to sell every month. Most artisans, vulnerable to whims of intermediaries, undervalue their products and have no other options to sell. The Wayuu Market offers all the professional and commercial services for them to sell on the internet on their own, for free. We are able to do this because clients pay the market fees. Moreover, we try to keep the cost low and we make up for our fees by giving you the option of a 65% discount on international shipping.

Every time you buy an item from the Wayuu Market, you aid to the sustainment of a Wayuu family, plus the full price of the item will go to the artisans directly.
