    I have just applied to notonthehighstreet.com and was wondering if anyone knew how long it normally takes to hear back from them? Apparently 90% of people get rejected but thought it was worth a shot anyway!

    I think that it might have been 10-14 days, but I can't really remember. Waiting is rubbish isn't it!!

    Fingers crossed for you!

        About a week for me. Wish they would tell you why it was rejected so you could adjust.

          Only took them a week or so to reject me! I'm not all that keen on them either as they've apparently been trying to steal sellers from another site that I am with. Very underhanded and unpleasant tricks.

            They told me my photos were C*** It was two years ago, and they were right. Not going to pay what they want to register with them now so never re-applied. Mo. XX

              Out of interest, what charges do they apply to allow you to sell with them? I read an article about one of the founders the other day about the fact that she was a millionaire.

                hmm, interesting to hear everyones opinions on this. Are there other similar sites out there which are equally well-known to the general public that support crafters which anyone is on or is notonthehighstreet.com the only option?

                  They turned me down also. The area I would be in the people there are quite high profile companys so I put it down the the fact I was small and new.

                    Got turned down as well, with no feedback, despite asking, twice, which I thought was a bit rude, thought I read that the initial fee is about £600.00 think this is one off and may be wrong but know it was not cheap, worked out would have to sell a lot to recoup the fee, so decided did not want to be with them anyway. No wonder she is a millionaire, saw a pair of earrings on there for £45.00, nothing special perhaps the craters have to bump up there prices to justify the costs

                      I can only judge the wood work really but the quality of the stuff I have sen on there isn't top drawer. Folksy and Misi are all very well for what they are but they are IMHO lower end online stores. There is room for a really good top quality UK based hand crafted store which has quality workmanship at sensible prices ( reflecting the quality and skill) that is geared towards being a store for crafters not a place for some IT entrepreneur to make a million. Any takers?

                        Of course you have to add on costs to cover overheads which includes any form of commission. Places like NOTHS and Swanky Maison are online stores to which you are the wholesale supplier of items marked up to cover costs which vary according to how much 'work' you or they do to sell the goods by way of promotion, advertising, processing and forwarding the goods sold to the client. Can't remember the ins and outs of NOTHS but seems to be too high a price for most crafters to fork out ? Mo.XX

                          I'm still doing research in the background into this - the main issue is that because of the amount of time/effort which would have to go into running (and promoting) the site, it would have to at least be able to cover these costs including time spent - which is tricky without making it prohibitively expensive. The focus would have to be on quality (e.g with a vetting process, ala NOTHS but more tranparent).

                          It's quite a crowded space I feel, but I do agree with you that there might be room at the 'quality' end of the scale

                            To be fair NOTHS doesn't promote itself as only selling handmade. They are just very good a spotting trends and getting people on board who are going to earn money for them.

                            I'm with NOTHS. It cost a lot of money.
                            My handmade stuff doesn't really work on there because I cannot mass produce items. I have to individually make the mosaics which is time consuming. Lets just say hindsight is a wonderful thing!
