MakeItFor.Us FAQ

General

MakeItFor.Us gets anything made. We’re a marketplace that connects Requestors, Makers, and Content Holders to bring inspirations to life. We like to think of ourselves as the ebay for everything that doesn't exist. Get things made. Sell things you make.

MakeItFor.Us provides a valued service to Requestors, Makers, and Content Holders.

In cases where we facilitate transactions between Requestors and Makers, we add a 20% "tip" , or service fee, for our services. This is included as part of the purchase price that you see.

In certain cases, where we're able find that that your Request is readily available either online or offline, we may earn a commission on the purchase from a third party affiliate program.

In all cases, we help Makers and Content Holders make money as well -- while delivering Requestors the things they want made.

Requestors

A Request is an indication that you are interested in getting something made. It's the trigger that gets Makers to bid on bringing your inspirations to life.

As a Requestor, you're not committed to making a purchase, until such time as you select a Maker to bring your inspiration to life.

Follow the step by step directions here. Select "Make It For Me!" at the opening, and follow along.

No. You are not obligated to pay for Requests, until such time as you've placed an actual order with a Maker.

MakeItFor.Us handles all aspects of the purchase cycle, from accepting orders right through to completing the financial transaction -- except for producing and delivering the purchased items.

We currently accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Our transaction processing is handled by Stripe (link), a trusted financial processor, that is PCI Compliant -- the internet’s gold standard in safe secure transactions.

Makers

A Make occurs when a Maker agrees to bring a Request to life, making it available for purchase. At this point pricing and all relevant details have been nailed down, and the Maker commits to deliver the product to Requestors.

It's at that time that your purchase contract will come into effect, and you will be charged once your purchase ships.

Follow the directions here. Select "Make & Sell to Others!" at the opening, and follow along.
