The UK Alternative to Etsy

About nuMONDAY

nuMONDAY has been labelled as the UK alternative to Etsy by many within the handmade and handcraft sector.

Our success has been built on our ethos to provide an affordable selling platform for creative individuals and businesses.

Over the years several marketplaces such as Etsy have significantly increased their fee policy which has had a detrimental impact on the creative industry for selling online.

Based in Glasgow, we started our journey in December 2016 with 35 British craft sellers before rapidly growing to over 10,000 of the best British creatives selling with us today.

The UK Alternative to Etsy

Etsy sellers have became very frustrated in recent years with higher and more complicated fees being applied to their sales and listings.

Being seen on Etsy is increasingly difficult as it has a large proportion of reseller and mass produced products leading to handmade and handcrafted UK sellers being lost within its marketplace.

That is why our ethos at nuMONDAY is so important.

We focus on British based individuals and businesses in order to help grow and protect their craft businesses and the craft industry as a whole.

Our incredible community helps improve, monitor and keep our selling platform close to our values and our terms.
