Start selling on the platform
Start selling on the Open Food Network platform in just a few easy steps.
It only takes 5-10 minutes to set up a shop or profile. You can register:
- a Profile which tells the story of your farm,
- a Producer shop where you sell your own produce,
- or a Hub shop where you sell produce from multiple producers.
It’s free to have a Profile or if your shop is selling less than $500 a month. Once you’re selling more than $500 a month it costs 2-3% as a solidarity member.
Step 1: Register on the platform
Step 2: Add products
Step 3: Choose your payment methods
Step 4: Choose your distribution methods
Step 5: Set your enterprise fees (optional)
Step 6: Choose your level of membership
Step 7: Open your shop!
If you haven’t chosen a membership option then we will be in touch to find out which membership option you’d like. We’ll also touch base to make sure you’re confident with the platform.
We also have set-up guides for slightly more complex uses like food hubs, farmers’ market pre-orders from multiple producers, buying groups, and more. You can access all of those in our User Guide.
