You make the cabinets. Joinery Trade facilitates the transaction between a buyer and seller. All cabinets sold on/via Joinery Trade are manufactured by the seller.

4Who sets the prices?
We spent many months developing a pricing algorithm that we believe is fair and reasonable for the buyer. We researched other flat pack websites and found that most of them are affordable until you need to alter the depth or height of a cabinet beyond the standard sizes. We wanted to make Joinery Trades pricing realistic at any size and have developed the pricing algorithm accordingly. As a Seller, you can increase or decrease our prices by a percentage.

No. The cost of support, updates, marketing, and development have been factored into our 5% sales commission.

No. We wanted to make our pricing structure easy to understand by fixing the commission at 5% for all sellers.
8What makes consumers buy from me over other Joinery Trade sellers?
Buyers have the ability to select sellers based on location, price and rating. We are also currently developing the functionality for buyers to submit reviews of sellers. When this is available buyers will be able to compare your reviews to other nearby sellers.
