Any South African individual or business who has a great product or service that wants to reach more customers can apply for a store but remember we want to offer customers something different!
So we are looking for unusual, innovative and creative products and services that capture the imagination and bring customers back for more! Not the same old retailers in every mall.
If you would like a store on Who Needs The Mall, apply and we will consider your application. Store approvals are entirely at our discretion and you must operate in accordance with the terms and conditions.
We reserve the right to reject and/or remove any product listing or store for any reason, in our sole discretion, that are in violation of our Terms and Conditions LINK, or that could negatively affect our relationships with our store holders or customers.
The range of products and services you can sell is huge, ranging from jewellery to homeware, party entertainers, beauty therapies, experience days and more. We are open to new product ideas and new trends that will appeal to our shoppers. We are always keen to accommodate local, independent designers, designer-manufacturers, service providers and small boutique retailers.
It’s probably better to be clear on what you cannot sell on our marketplace:
- Anything made by someone else you do not have permission or a licence to sell
- Any counterfeit or fake copies
- Perishable foodstuffs
- Anything Illegal
- Alcohol, tobacco, drugs or pharmaceuticals, live animals, pornography
- Anything we deem unsuitable for our concept such as houses, groceries, cars, electronics, phones, international clothing brands and main stream products better suited to malls!
You get the idea! We want to work with South African based people and small businesses who have wonderful creative products and services and who want reach a wider market and grow.
We will list your products for you but you manage your own stock and fulfill your orders using whichever shipping method you’ve chosen. If you want to change pricing, run specials and have sales, you can and we can help you by featuring these on the marketplace for maximum impact.
No, opening a store is free, you only pay us commission when you make a sale! No risk, we only make money when you do!
Go to the pricing plan options for full details on features and fees.
No, you can cancel your store at any time but why would you!
We pay our store holders weekly for orders we have received up until the previous Friday. We transfer your money directly into your bank account.
Think of your store on Who Needs The Mall as another branch, reaching more customers and expanding your market. We do all the hard work of promoting your store and your products which, as you will know if you have your own store, is essential for the success of any online store.
Publicity and interest generated by Who Needs The Mall will also bring new people to your online Store as more and more people hear about you.
No sorry, not currently. However, as Who Need The Mall grows we plan to expand our marketplace to include international sellers. If you would like to be notified when applications from international businesses are open, please register your interest here
