As a company co-founded by a fashion designer, we pride ourselves on aligning our business and values with the designers who chose to partner with us to operate and launch lean businesses. Our mission at Nineteenth Amendment is to help make brands successful by giving them the tools they need to scale. Selling and distribution is a huge part of that equation, so we did some research to see how different retailers compare. Read on to see how marketplaces compare:

  • All items must be exclusive to NJAL

Selling in a brick and mortar retail store? The average fee taken by store retailers is 47.02% of every sale according to the US Census Bureau.

Nineteenth Amendment is different. Designers pay a monthly fee to participate on Nineteenth Amendment and a transaction fee of 7% per sale which also covers the credit card transaction cost. This means that in most cases designers cover their monthly cost of using Nineteenth Amendment with just one sale! Here’s the breakdown:

Nineteenth Amendment Marketplace

  • 10% fee per item sold on our optional Marketplace
  • Included free with Nineteenth Amendment production platform ($19.99-99.99/month)
  • No inventory required
  • Manufacturing network to scale your business
  • Production management system
  • Exclusive designer opportunities
  • Items do not have to be exclusive to Nineteenth Amendment
