Criteria and application procedure are discussed in this page: http://thegoodtrade.ph/pages/apply

How much are the rates and fees?

  • Fairs - Rental rates depend on the venue. 
  • Online - Our consignment fees are at par with market rates. 


Do you work with corporates/businesses?
Yes, we do! If you're a corporation wanting to dip your toes in sustainability but not sure how to start, send us an e-mail at thegoodtrade.ph@gmail.com. Let us know what you have in mind and let's collab to make an even bigger impact. 

Do you waive fees for NGOs?
Yes, we waive fees for NGOs who collect discarded items to create a circular economy. Instead of going to waste, these items find new purpose through their help.

For NGOs who want to spread their advocacy, we can only offer a slot for workshops/talks. 

Kindly send us a proposal at thegoodtrade.ph@gmail.com

Note: This is only applicable to fairs.
