Signing up for CustomMade is easy. First, you'll be asked to create an account by entering your name, email address, and password. Then, you'll be prompted to read and agree to the terms of our Maker Agreement. Once you've created an account and accepted the terms of the Maker Agreement, there are four simple steps left to complete.
Step 1. About You. Upload a profile photo and enter your name, phone number, and address. Next, select up to 5 areas of expertise, and provide optional links to website where we can view samples of your past work.
Step 2. About Your Business. Enter your company name and description. Then, create a CustomMade URL. Your URL is a personalized, public-facing web address, viewable by anyone who looks at your profile on CustomMade. Your name or business name is generally the best choice for your vanity URL.
Step 3. Profile Builder. A profile showcases your work. Upload images that are in focus, well-lit, and display each item for a few different angles. Get step-by-step instructions on creating listings in your profile. You'll need to upload three or more listings in order to have an approved profile on CustomMade.
Step 4. Payment Information. For makers in the United States, you are required to create an account with WePay, our secure third-party payments partner in order to have an approved profile on CustomMade. Learn more about WePay in our Payments FAQs.
After your profile is complete, CustomMade staff will review it. Our review process typically takes 3-4 business days, and when your profile is approved, we'll email you to let you know that you can begin expressing interest in jobs.
