  • When placing an order, what is the minimum purchase? 

 

The minimum purchase to place an order depends on the sales policy of the different producers. It varies between 12 and 24 units of products. 


 

  • How can a producer’s products be visible on the platform? 

 

As a producer, you can apply for free on our website, in the producer area. It takes about ten minutes.

  • What are the platform fees for producers?

 

Registration to offer your products on the platform is completely free. 

 

Then we deduct a small portion of the producer’s payment:

When a new distributor places its first order, L'Épicerie Créole receives a 15% commission excluding tax. 

 

Subsequent orders from the distributor in question will only be charged 10% commission excluding tax by the platform. 

 

If a customer already known to the producer wishes to order via our website, it is possible ! In this case, the producer will receive 100% of the profits related to his order. In other words, there will be no commission on the sale for the orders of the already known customer in question. 


 

  • Is there a system of sponsorship between producer and distributor?

 

Yes, being a producer and sponsoring a distributor is entirely possible. 

 

This action will allow the distributor to obtain many advantages such as: - 10% on the following order, a digital recipe booklet, product sheets and a highlight on social networks. 

 

The producer, meanwhile, will get a 0% commission rate on all orders made by the sponsored distributor.
