How to Become a Seller
Thanks for your interest in becoming a seller. Our vendors are allowed to sell tools and accessories in the following niches: Power Tools, Hand Tools, Antique & Vintage Tools, Primitive Tools, Unique Tools, and Home & Garden Tools. Parts and accessories is another category to compliment the tools whole goods categories. The Trades is a category for those who sell heavier equipment for our commercial and residential contractors and subcontractors. Tool Tackle is a Tools & Accessory multivendor website for those in the tools & accessory niche. We have a auction style listing for those who would like to list items outside of the tools & accessories niche. We have a reverse style auction for those who are looking for a professional contractor, subcontractor, handyman, or just a simple task like raking leaves.
