Are you a Hive member? Do you have a product to sell or service to offer? We are now accepting vendors to our marketplace! Start your own store right here on Hivelist! This store uses the power of WordPress and WooCommerce to bring the marketplace alive! We accept a variety of crypto currencies as well as we also have fiat payment options like credit card payments through Stripe.
The Hive based payment solution we offer is Hivepay.io, which we accept a small list of tokens, due to market volume and liquidity. Pay with Hive’s native stablecoin,
Hive Backed Dollars (HBD)
Also pay with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dogecoin, USDC, and DAI. More options will be added in the future.
How do I register as a vendor? Well, first all you have to do is pay the vendor registration fee via HivePay below and then you will be redirected to the Vendor Registration page. You will then use your HIVE username to sign up. This is VERY important that you use your HIVE username to register with the site. This is how we will pay your when you request a withdrawal from the store.
First step, create a product to sell on the store. This can be a digital product like an eBook or video course, physical products like your brand clothing and accessories that you create, or even list just use it as a place to direct people to all of your NFTs that you have listed on the various marketplaces. Really the sky is the limit, just make sure we are keeping things legal 😉
Next step is to get whitelisted on the Hivelist NFT Marketplace. This requires 1000 LIST staked plus 100 LIST whitelisting fee.

Once you have completed that step, all you have to do is pay the one time fee and fill out the form that will follow! If you have any issues, feel free to contact us in our Discord server.
You are in charge of your products or services that you offer. Your store is your store! We do ask that you keep to the same integrity and honesty that we have built this platform on.
If you make products, be sure to set the correct amount of supply and also you will want to think about including shipping into your price. We will have 2 different shipping options available to you to offer but you can create your own shipping options that work best for you and your products. One option is for inside the US and the other is International shipping. If you are a vendor outside the US, you will want to explore the shipping costs of your products and make sure you are charging your customers accordingly.
Also, please be smart and do not offer any illegal products or services. If it is even questionable, please do not list it. We are running a legit operation and do not want the authorities snooping around if we can help from it. We are not picky, but if we think we will get in trouble for a product that you are offering, we will contact you to take that product down, or we will be forced to remove it. If you have any questions about the products you are offering, please feel free to reach out and we can make sure you are good to go… We aren’t trying to be another Silk Road, so no drugs or hitman services.
For physical products, if you want to use print on demand services like Printful, Printify, or RedBubble, you will need to create an account on those platforms and manage your own products. **NOTE** We have discontinued our P.O.D service for future items. All currently listed items will stay on the store for now.
All crypto payments will be converted to HBD. Fiat payments will be used to purchase USDC and then converted to HBD or will be paid out of our reserves. When a withdrawal request is made you will be paid in the proper amount of HBD. We will calculate the conversion rate from USD to HBD and send with the payment as HBD can tend to be off of the dollar peg at times. Once you mark your order as ‘Complete’, it may take some time for your payment to process and be ready for a withdrawal request. It can take up to 20 minutes for this process to happen in the background. Please allow 24-72 hours for our team to process your withdrawal request. We sometimes will need to pull from the HBD savings for payout which takes 3 days to complete. We will let you know if this is the case ahead of time.
It is suggested to set up a line of credit, such as a credit card to pay for your vendor and merchandise fees if you are drop shipping, unless you produce the product yourself or you use our fulfillment service. We will not police your sales, but if we get complaints from customers, we will have to investigate the issues, and possible pausing/termination of your store can occur. You will also be required to handle your own customer returns, unless using the Hivelist Fulfillment service, then we handle that for you.
Aside from the registration charges and staking/delegation requirements, a 10% sales commission will be taken from each sale on the platform. Compare this with other marketplaces at 15% plus… It’s a good deal. Of this 10%, 5% will be paid out to the affiliates. If an affiliate sends a customer to the store and a product is purchased via that referral code, then that affiliate will receive the 5% commission share. The Hivelist Store will receive the other 5%. If no affiliate code is used for a purchase, then the Hivelist Store will receive the entire 10% commission. This will be used to help pay for server fees, administrative assistance, and other operational costs that are encountered, as well as help grow the service further!
Hivelist fulfillment print on demand pays out 10% of the final sales total. The rest is used to pay product costs, taxes, shipping, and then also pays the store’s commission.
We do offer 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20% discounts for our LIST Staking Club members so you will be required to accept those discounts as well. If a coupon code is used, the calculation happens at the time of the transaction. To offset any discounts or other fees, we encourage our vendors to sign up as affiliates and direct traffic to their store using their referral code and earn back the 3% affiliate commission as well!
Do you have NFTs on the different blockchains and marketplaces? You can also become a vendor and start a store just to showcase all of your NFT art and collections all in one place!
When you create a product, you will be making it as an affiliate product which means that when they click on your product in the store, it will show the same product details as any other product on the store, but will not have an Add to Cart button. Instead it will have a button that will lead the user to your NFTs on the selected marketplace!
You will select ‘NFT Gallery’ when you are selecting the product category. We will also be adding different known NFT blockchains and marketplaces to the category list so that we can further categorize your NFTs. For example we will add:
Blockchains: Ethereum, Polygon, WAX, Solana, BSC, and HIVE
Markets: Opensea, AtomicHub, Solanart, NFTShowroom, HiveLIST, OpenLIST, etc.
