To help you love shopping on cerqular, we have a strict set of criteria all sellers need to meet before being able to join. From verifying their company registration, providing a transparent product return/exchange/warranty policy, to verifying claims and features of sustainability, all sellers on cerqular are verified. Save time, be rewarded and feel confident every time you shop on cerqular knowing you’re buying from verified sustainable brands that have gone the extra mile to help you and the environment.
We check every application to make sure all claims are backed up (so if a seller says it’s a certified B Corp, we double check it’s true!). Sustainable certifications can be complex – but rest assured, we’ve got you covered.
Verify Each Product
We comb through every application to make sure products are good for the environment as well as wildlife, plants, natural resources and people. Verified sellers are serious about sustainability & product innovation.
Total transparency and traceability of each sustainable feature and seller are a must. When you sell on cerqular you’re doing business on a level playing field designed to make you shine!
Any time there's any big changes to the product (ingredients, sourcing, materials etc) we review this too, to make sure it's still all sustainable.
Whenever you have new products to add, simply load the product information along with supporting documentation in your seller dashboard and we’ll review the listing ASAP to get your products up and running.
We randomly check our sellers to ensure their credentials are up to date, their marketing is true, and their products live up to their promises so buyers can shop with confidence.

Let’s talk about money
What’s cerq-pay and how does it work?
cerq-pay is our fast, easy payment system that integrates with Stripe
Connect Express. Not to be confused with cerq-cash (a digital wallet for buyers to make shopping a one-click experience), our cerq-pay system allows you to get paid quickly. It’s also how you’ll pay the cerqular team your monthly membership fee. Just like other online marketplace platforms, sellers are responsible for any transaction fees. To learn more about what those fees are, please click here.
What is the monthly membership fee?
We offer 4 levels of membership which vary based on your shop and its
needs. All of our memberships are paid on a monthly basis, but we offer anywhere from 10-20% off if you opt-in to an annual membership. See below for full details:
