Do I need a store location to be a part of ZTrend?
You are not required to operate a storefront. Today it’s not always possible for an independent business to maintain a storefront. Many artists sell online, at pop ups or hold sales in their studios. ZTrend is a great opportunity for artists and independent businsses to be found in a directory for the discerning shopper.
