Frequently Asked Questions

Your MakersValley membership is due when you submit your first design listing on the platform. This is a recurring payment that will be billed automatically each month to your credit card on the same day that you submitted your design.

The manufacturing costs will vary depending on your design. Typical manufacturing costs include fabric, labor costs to cut & sew your garment, accessories, printing, and labels on the garment you want to make. MakersValley will send you an invoice for all production costs.

Getting a quote for your design is fun and easy. Just log into your account, create a new project, and plug in your product details — like material options, quantity, and finishing details.

No, production costs are not covered by the monthly membership fee. The monthly membership is what you pay to MakersValley for matching you with a factory in Italy and also for the dedicated Account Manager who will see your product through from the moment you initially send us your request to the final product being delivered to you.

We’ve made our invoices easy for you. Both the monthly membership and production costs are invoiced to you online using your credit card then we take care of paying the factory and vendors in the entire supply chain process for your product which saves you valuable time to design and work on other projects.

As your production volume increases, the manufacturer’s costs typically decrease and we pass those savings onto you. In other words, if you produce 50 pieces, you cost to produce each piece will be greater than if you produce 150 pieces.
