Delighting us in the juxtaposition of two words not generally attached to one another in previous generations, CoolNerd makes a contemporary statement with their name, espousing the new and elevated social status of individuals generally immersed in both the art and science of 3D design and 3D printing, tinkering, and making. Not only that: They are making a statement with their new concept for both sellers and buyers, as they sweep in and up the ante in the 3D marketplace.
While the idea of the buying and selling of 3D printed products online has been evolving over the past few years with a few big names who are well-known for allowing us to shop for a wide variety of retail items, download designs, and then usually have the items 3D printed for us, there really isn’t a comprehensive one-stop shop.
Entities selling 3D printing equipment and everything associated with that usually have to create or pay for their own costly websites, purchase and set up advertising, and perform all website maintenance and administration. That’s a big operation for many sellers who may want to focus more on selling and less on taking care of their online presence.
The 3D printing marketplace has traditionally been rather removed from selling to the more technologically savvy crowd and geared more toward retail, for buyers who often do not have 3D printers. CoolNerd is carving out a place for the 3D printing enthusiast not only to meet all their needs at once, but also to enhance the total experience for sellers who can now market hardware and more.
Buying in this new marketplace is undoubtedly reserved for the maker’s maker, and for those who are doing more than shopping for pretty things. CoolNerd, not allowing any non-3D printed items, offers one place to purchase not only 3D designs but also:
- 3D printers
- Parts and accessories
- CAD designs
- Other related products
The team has over a decade of experience in selling and marketing electronics and accessories, bringing enormous knowledge to the table in their new marketplace where they’ll be able to take care of those shopping as well as those selling, employing skill in targeting shopping engines, search engines, involvement in social networks, and the use of video marketing to catch the attention of 3D printing customers.
Sure to catch the attention of a wide array of 3D printing equipment manufacturers and resellers in the US, CoolNerd will be inviting those engaged in the selling of 3D printers, scanners, materials, and products in the next few months to try out the site, encouraging each seller to sign up to begin producing income within 48 hours feasibly, with commissions as low as 8%, paid directly through PayPal.
- Are you an individual or entity residing in the US?
- Do you sell new 3D printer parts and accessories, 3D scanners, pens, filaments, or 3D printed models like toys, devices, or other products?
- Are you a 3D printing manufacturer or reseller of new 3D printers?
- Are you a 3D printing artist interested in selling sculptures or other 3D printed works of art?
- Are you a CAD designer who sells STL CAD designs to the 3D printing community?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are eligible to be a seller through CoolNerd, with your choice of two different accounts. While you can also opt for additional website exposure with additional fees, the two basic seller accounts are as follows:
- No fee account with $.99 per sale + 15% sale commission.
- $39.95 fee per month, after enjoying the first six months as a free trial, with an 8% sale commission.
These extremely affordable accounts allow you to take advantage of the marketing and managing being performed through the marketplace by CoolNerd. Not only that, you can take part in valuable incentive programs with a point and referral fee system.
