Our mission is to connect those in need of production with those able to produce.
What do we do?
Finding a qualified shop for your job used to be a very time consuming and difficult task. We now offer a central location for shops and customers of all sizes and needs to work together. Our customer review system ensures you know what you are getting and who you are dealing with.
Orders and payments can (optionally) be handled directly through the site. No need for your own payment processing.
Why do we do it?
Over the years, we have used many of these services for our own projects. PCB fab, Laser cutting, CNC of metal, plastic and wood, 3D printing to name a few. It was never easy to find someone for the job, and then finding someone to do it on time, on budget, and to quality expectations is a different matter in itself.
It is our sincere hope that Makezee will enable those able to produce to connect with those that need production.
We welcome shops of all sizes.
The guy in his bedroom with the 3D printer is just as welcome as the multi-million dollar CNC facility.

How does this work?
Shops list the types of services they are able to perform.
Customers browse or search for the service they need performed. Using a simple shopping cart like system, they can begin their quote/job request. They can include plenty of information/specs,requirements, files,etc.
The shop now processes the information and provides a quote for the job.
The customer can accept and pay for the order, or negotiate back and forth for as long as it takes to make the perfect deal. If terms cannot be agreed upon, the quote can be rejected. The customer can of course request quotes from many shops to find the best terms.
Shop have their own shop page. Here they can list capabilities, equipment, experience, photos, and anything else to make them stand out.
We also use a robust review and rating system, to enable customers to provide an account of their experience with the shop.
Prices, Fees, and Payments
Prices for services are set solely by the shop, Makezee does not attempt to influence this in any way. We believe the competitive nature of the industry will set acceptable market prices for the services.
Built in Payment Processing
For shops that may not have their own payment processing in place, we do offer payment processing at very competitive rates. If you choose to use our processing the payment process is as follows:
The customer will make their payment at the start of the order, and the funds will be held in escrow. This ensures you will get paid for the work you do.
Payments will be made to Shop on a determined net schedule. This schedule will be determined by many factors as explained in the Shop Agreement.
You are not in any way obligated to use our payment processing. It is available to you as you need it, but you are welcome accept payments in whatever way works for you.
