Buy in 3 steps – it’s easy!

DaWanda is an online marketplace, where thousands of different designers offer products for sale in their own shops. Here's how to get your hands on their creations:
1. Find your dream item

Know exactly what you want? Type accurate, descriptive key words for your perfect purchase into the search box at the top of the page to the left, and click on the "Search" button.

Want to do a little window shopping first? There are plenty of possibilities on the DaWanda homepage. Dive into one of DaWanda's categories, browse the latest trends, search by your favourite colour, or explore our gift ideas.

By the way: You can 'pin' products to go back to later, by simply clicking the "Add to my pinboard" button, to the right of the product photos. You need to register first for this to work.
2. Buy the item

So you've found a great product and you want to buy it before someone else snaps it up? Then just click on the green "Add to basket" button. You can go straight to the checkout by clicking on the shopping basket icon to the top right. If you have already registered at DaWanda, then you only need to provide your address and your desired payment method here, and you're done!

By the way: Of course you can buy several different items at once. Items from each different seller will be treated as separate orders, and each seller will get in touch with you separately. Every time a seller contacts you, we’ll send you an email to let you know, so be sure to keep an eye on your inbox.
3. Pay for your purchase

After you place an order you may need to be a little patient and wait until the seller has confirmed your order. Some sellers confirm orders automatically, others do it manually. Once the order is confirmed, you will receive all info on payment and shipping in an email, including, e.g. a link to pay by PayPal, or the seller's bank account info. Please pay for your purchase within 7 days to receive your item!

We hope you have a lot of fun shopping on DaWanda!

To start filling up your shop, just click where it says "Create a new listing" on your shop's page. Then follow the easy step-by-step process to describe your product and upload up to four photos of it. Of course you can change this description or delete the item from your shop at any time.

Contact us if you would like our quick and easy CSV tool to be activated on your account, so you can spend more time crafting and less time uploading.
Now it gets exciting, as buyers can freely explore what's in your shop!
