In 2017 Internet Marketplace Sites did over 50% of all sales on the Internet.

General Marketplace Sites offer the Customer a wide range of products and categories to choose from. This has been found to be a blessing and a curse. It is too easy for the customer to get lost in the endless number of products and categories. Special Interest Marketplaces are taking the forefront of eCommerce bring together products that relate to one another through a special interest, activity or want. The DIY Kit Marketplace is a special interest Site that is bringing together companies that produce Do-It-Yourself Kits with Customers that enjoy Do-It-Yourself Projects.

Do it Yourself, built-it-Yourself, Assemble it Yourself whatever you call it DIY is not new. People have been DIYing since, well since forever, literally. However, like many other things, the internet has accelerated the phenomenon and facilitated endless DIY possibilities. The DIY world is exploding and according to Technavio is expected to be worth more than 13.9 billion by 2021. People are DIYing more than ever before, but industry leaders say we haven't even begun to scratch he surface

The DIY Kit Marketplace is bringing the DIY Kit to the forefront of DIY. Providing the Customer a single location to browse the literally thousands of DIY Kits over a full range of categories. Today a DIYer may want to build a Dog House, tomorrow a Boat, next week brew Beer!

The DIY Kit Marketplace allows the DIY Customer to dive deep into ALL the categories of DIY Kits and indulge him or herself in all that is available to them.

Categories

With most of the current Marketplaces if you don't fit into their list of Categories...tough luck! That is not the philosophy at the DIY Kit Marketplace. We have come up with 24 Categories with over 100 subcategories and we believe that we have only just got started. Categories will be added and modified as Sellers, like yourself, join the Marketplace. Thus, if you believe that your DIY Kit does not fit into a category that we have we want to hear from you. Together we will create a Marketplace that will be unparalleled in its' presentation to the DIY Customer!

Does Your Kit Require Financing?

Many of you have been kept out of Marketplaces for the simple reason that many of your Kit sales require some level of financing. The DIY Kit Marketplace is making use of the large number of on-line lenders and is currently reviewing the field for the perfect candidate to promote on the Marketplace. Res assured that we will have an aggressive lender on board before the Marketplace opens September 1. For those of you that have gotten around the financing problem by splitting your Kit up is affordable sub-Kits. The DIY Kit Marketplace will completely support this type of sale.

Sales Taxes - US and Canadian

Sales Taxes have become a dirty word in the past year. But, dirty or not it is something that we just have to maybe not live with but comply with. We can't help you with the sales tax problems you may have through your own personal website, but we can surely solve the problem on all your sales through the Marketplace. The DIY Kit Marketplace will collect and pay all applicable US and Canadian Sales Taxes on your sales through the Marketplace. We have registered with the Canadian Government and are currently being briefed on how to report on your shipment paperwork that all Canadian HST/GST/PST taxes are paid on drop shipments from your warehouse. As a positive note under the new agreement between the US and Canada the de minimis level for no duty and sales taxes has been increased to 150CAD.

Canadian Sellers

The slow implementation of US on-line sales taxes in the us is playing havoc with your US business. How is the "nexus" figured / Are Sales Taxes retroactive? / How in the world am I going to comply with 50 state and over 3000 county sales tax laws? Although the de minimis level for no duty is still at $800 in the new deal between the US and Canada there is some confusion whether this level will also be for no US on-line Sales Taxes. Rest assured that ALL your sales through the Marketplace will completely comply with ALL US on-line Sales tax rules. The DIY Kit Marketplace will collect, report, and pay all applicable US on-line Sales Taxes! You will be free to innovate and sell more Kits in the USA.
