Picker

Get paid to shop! As a picker for Afrobeatnik you act as a pair of eyes for the business. After being trained on the product we carry and price range we buy in, pickers buy pieces for Afrobeatnik to sell. The picker is reimbursed 100% for the item and when the item sells, the picker receives 10-20% commission.

There is no time commitment or minimum amount of items a picker must provide. Shop at your leisure. 

How it works:

  1. The picker is trained on Afrobeatnik buying guidelines
  2. The picker purchases item(s) within buying criteria 
  3. Afrobeatnik takes possession of the item(s) and reimburses the picker 100%
  4. Afrobeatnik cleans the item(s), determines if upcycling is needed, and makes any necessary repairs or adjustments
  5. Afrobeatnik takes professional photographs of the item(s)
  6. The item(s) are sold in Afrobeatnik's online and pop up retail events
  7. The picker receives 10-20% commission per item (depending on item cost)

Consigner

Got stuff to sell? Consigners differ from pickers mainly in that they are not reimbursed upfront for items they provide us to sell. Instead they receive 50% of every item they provide that is purchased from Afrobeatnik. This option is ideal for those in possession of vintage item(s) with no time to sell them but a desire to make extra cash. 

How it works:

  1. The consigner schedules a consignment appointment with Afrobeatnik via our Contact page
  2. If we decide to sell the consigner's item(s), a contract is signed and Afrobeatnik takes possession of the item(s) until it sells or for 90 days  
  3. Afrobeatnik cleans the item(s), determines if upcycling is needed, and makes any necessary repairs or adjustments
  4. Afrobeatnik takes professional photographs of the item(s)
  5. The item(s) are sold in Afrobeatnik's online and pop up retail events
  6. The consigner receives 50% commission of the item when it sells

WHY PICK OR CONSIGN?

Being a picker or consigner requires no time commitment from you, it's completely at your leisure. These roles are perfect for those who find pleasure in occasional or frequent thrifting and estate sale browsing or those in possession of vintage clothing and accessories with no time to sell them. 

Picking or consigning is great for those who have considered opening their own vintage store but don't have the time to invest in preparing/re-purposing garments, marketing, or running a business.
