DESIGNERS: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES THE COCO MARKET WORK?
DROP IT. STOCK IT. SELL IT.
We are a digital store, we do not stock any physical inventory. We operate via drop-shipping which allows you to control the growth of your brand. You ship to our customers when they buy your products and we pay you for every product sold. You work with our team and a personal account manager to control your inventory, sales and promotions. We are your team.
On rare occasions, we do agree to stock some brands under consignment in order to ease shipping throughout the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East. We also have facilities in place to assist with international shipping where necessary.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

HOW DO I LIST AN ITEMS ON THE MARKET?
In order to sell your items on the Market, we will need full product descriptions, prices and images. You must accurately describe your items and all terms of sale including shipping, return and exchange.
You must specify both the quantities of stock available and sizes. Please also provide size charts where required.
We also work with many international retailers who purchase wholesale orders via the Market so please be sure to send through your wholesale pricing.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MY PRODUCTS ARE SOLD?
As soon as a customer purchases your product through COCONAUTICAL.com we will send you a notification with the customer’s shipping details and a confirmation of payment. All sales are binding. You are then responsible for shipping up to the point of delivery and must complete the transaction with the buyer within 14 days.
DOES COCONAUTICAL SUPPORT MY PROMOTIONS AND OFFERS?
From time to time, COCONAUTICAL may invite you to participate in monthly promotions, offers and discounts for our customers in order to increase your sales. We are also happy to run independent promotions for your brand to align with your sales calendar.
Promotional codes have no cash value and cannot be exchanged for money or credit.
HOW DO I HANDLE FEE INCLUSIONS?
The price stated for each item listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale and must consider any necessary costs to cover local and international shipping. Otherwise sellers are advised to comply with Market shipping prices which will be included in the full value of your sale.
Listed designers may not encourage buyers to purchase an item listed on the COCONAUTICAL Marketplace outside of the COCONAUTICAL Marketplace site, such as directly through PayPal or other third-party providers. This may constitute fee avoidance.
