Date: 3/2024

Welcome to the dedicated page for our valued Legacy Vendors, where we celebrate your contributions and share exciting updates about our journey together.

Beyond a Marketplace: Your Partner in Growth

After thoughtful consideration and for the first time in our history, Foraged is changing its pricing structure. Prior to April 1, 2024, Legacy Vendors will have to choose from one of three membership plans, each with its own bespoke set of features and corresponding prices. 

This change purely serves to enable us to invest more heavily in your business. What might not be apparent is that our goal is not to increase our revenue from this change. In 2023 alone, for example, we invested more than $150,000 in advertising and promotion costs, driving new customers to your business. And, we want to continue this support for years to come.

Our goal is to support you long into the future by providing you with the tools, resources, and visibility you need to succeed. This pricing change more closely aligns our ongoing costs to ensure both you and Foraged can grow sustainable businesses together. 

We felt it was crucial to share our thought process to the vendors that have been with us on the journey behind this pivotal decision.

The evolution underscores our commitment to being your full-fledged solution and a true home base for you to grow with and not just being another platform to sell on.

Foraged Evolution

We started with a rudimentary, duct-taped together website in 2021. The site was slow, the features were limited, and the network was small. The tech was so poor back then, and the website traffic growing so quickly, that people frequently couldn’t access their accounts because our servers were so overwhelmed with traffic. At that time, and up until recently, Foraged has been free to use with only a 10% commission rate to help fund our investments in your success. 

Things have changed dramatically – for the better. From our early, basic website and handful of users, we’ve evolved into an industry-leading software solution with a huge arsenal of custom-built tools tailored to your unique needs – plus, Foraged has grown into the largest network of specialty food consumers in the country. Speaking of countries, Foraged has even expanded beyond the USA to more than seven international nations. 

It’s truly amazing how far we have all come together. But in many ways, our journey has only just started.

Our Impact

We grew this together, and among us are 800+ vendors from across 50 states and 7 countries united over a shared passion for exceptional food and products. Your commitment is what makes Foraged special, and we’re excited about our collective achievements. 

  • 24.1 Million Impressions: Your products grabbed millions of eyeballs, thanks to our investments in advertising your businesses.
  • 1.7 Million Product Views: A staggering number of potential customers engaged with your offerings.
  • 600,000+ Store Visitors: We directed a massive audience to explore what you have to off.

Our 2023 Investments in You

  • $76,500 in Coupons: To boost your sales, at no extra cost to you.
  • $74,000 in Advertising: Amplifying your presence in the digital world.
  • $200,000 in Software Development: Building you custom tools to make your life easier and your business more successful

This upcoming change will enable us to continue making such massive investments in your growth.

Driving Innovation Forward: What's to Come

We win together.

We’ve listened, and we’ve given considerable thought to how we can better enable you to scale your business and meet your evolving needs – for the long term. The feedback has been clear and consistent: you want a single solution for managing sales across multiple channels, as well as tools to make marketing and operations easier. 

And that’s why we’re more than just a passive sales channel; we are your true partner in your growth. Our partnership will achieve the greatest success when we make a mutual commitment. And it’s working: since January, all new vendors who have joined Foraged are already investing in their growth through our new membership plans.

You Asked, We Built:

  • Zero Fees for Your Existing Customers: Demonstrating our commitment to making Foraged your business’ homebase, we invite you to bring your customers and enjoy zero transaction fees when any of these customers order. Start inviting here.
  • Tap-to-Pay Mobile POS: Enabling you to sell everywhere with our in-person payment solution. With the Foraged mobile app and payment reader, you can now accept Tap-to-Pay and credit card payments — whether at the farmers market, doing a delivery, or anywhere else you sell. This innovation not only presents an alternative to expensive traditional POS systems (up to $250/month), but integrates with the rest of your Foraged ecosystem. Order your POS reader.
  • Unified Sales Sync: We recognize the complexity of maintaining inventory accuracy across online and offline transactions. Our solution simplifies this process and costs a fraction of the price (inventory management tools can cost more than $100/month). 
  • Customizable Storefront: Eliminates the need to buy a separate domain, pay for a website builder, hire a software engineer or a web designer. Our customizable storefronts provide a direct, brand-aligned online presence on a marketplace visited by millions. 
  • Advancing the Marketing Suite: Take advantage of our integrated Google Ads and email marketing tools to expand your reach and effectively engage with your audience. To do this on your own website would require paying for tools and hiring consultants to setup.

Exciting New Features Coming Very Soon

In the coming weeks, vendors on paid membership plans will enjoy:

  • Digital Invoicing: From your dashboard, easily send beautiful digital invoices for wholesale or custom orders to whomever you’d like. Orders integrate with the rest of your Foraged store, so everything is in one place.
  • Pre-Ordering & Local Pickup Options (Within a few weeks!): Customers prefer to shop online. Get discovered by new customers in your area and secure orders ahead of the farmers market, where customers can place orders for local pickup scheduled for exact dates, times, and locations. Bad weather doesn’t need to rain on your sales parade anymore.
  • Enhanced Data Analytics (Within the next couple months!): With advanced analytics at your fingertips, make informed decisions to steer your business towards higher profitability. 
  • Streamlined Shopping & Integration with Shopify (Within the next couple months!): Effortlessly manage your online sales with improved shopping functionalities and seamless Shopify integration.
  • US Farmer’s Markets Integration (Within a few weeks!): Our commitment to being the go-to place for consumers to find food directly from the people that. Consumers will be able to use the map to locate their farmers markets and pre-order & pickup from participating vendors. The map will also include your designated pickup locations. 

Note: These features will only be available to vendors subscribed to a membership plan

Foraged Membership Plans
