How Odissa Works

Odissa is an online jewellery marketplace run by The Guild of Jewellery Designers where visitors to the site can buy quality jewellery direct from a growing, diverse range of independent designer/makers. It incorporates individual e-tail 'outlets' with full register, browse-and-buy functionality. Jewellery designer/makers sell online through a single, secure online store with each designer having their own products, orders, shipping, taxes, dashboard and much more.

 

The platform was created as a way for jewellery makers to have somewhere to sell designer jewellery, showcase their products and help to maintain and grow the British Jewellery making industry in the face of cheap foreign imports.

 

Choice and Value for money.

 

Each of our designers are passionate about their work and are constantly evolving new designs and techniques. Odissa exists as part of The Guild of Jewellery Designers to help promote independent jewellery designers and as such receives a small percentage from the designers to help fund the site, enabling the designers to receive more for their work. 

 

Traditional high street outlets typically markup stock by between 2 and 5 times the original manufacturing price, the Odissa way ensures that the designer receives a fair reward for their work.

 

Contact a Designer

 

Designers can be contacted directly through Odissa using the 'Contact Designer' link at the bottom of the individual designers profile or product pages or the 'Contact' link on the designer left hand menu. Clicking on the 'Products' link on the left Designers profile menu, allows you to view everything they have at leisure.

 

Orders placed through Odissa pass directly to the designer, making them your point of contact for any returns, refunds or queries you may have about your purchase.

 

Interested in Selling on Odissa?

 

Do you want to sell online, but find that creating a website takes too much time and money?

Instead of creating your own website, it is far easier to sell your crafts online by joining one of the many established online shops or market places.

 

Jewellery designer/makers interested in selling through Odissa can apply using the 'become a seller' link at the top of the page next to the top search box or click here >> 

 

Applying to sell on Odissa does not automatically guarantee acceptance by us. We like to see products that are well photographed and presented and it is down to our discretion as to whether we think your products will fit. If a product looks as if it has been mass produced we may contact you for further information or clarification as to the origin.

 

As an agent, we are offering members a service; a tried, tested and trusted route to market, however we are not here specifically to sell for you. Sales will occur through our channels but you must understand that our service is to act as the agent providing a sales platform to market and sell while your responsibility is to generate interest in your brand & increase your profile.  

 

Monthly subscriptions are available both including and excluding Products and Public Liability (PPL) insurance. (Details of our policy can be found here: PPL Insurance for jewellers. ) Guild of Jewellery Designers Gold members receive a 10% discount on membership to Odissa and can subscribe through their guild dashboard.

***NEW!***

Please enjoy your visit to Odissa

 

Online marketplaces are excellent venues to find examples of specialist products in one place and, as such, becoming increasingly popular so, have fun and please spread the word! :-)
