If you would like to sell your own creations at Maker Faire, you are welcome to do so as a "Commercial Maker". Commercial Makers are responsible for their own business transactions - whether it be via cash, credit card, barter, or some other means. The fee for Commercial Makers is $75. If you have a new (under 5 years old) company of up to 10 persons and would like to sell goods/services to the general public, you are welcome to do so as a “Startup Company” (fee: $100). Fee for companies with more than 10 employees is $150. Registered non-profits and social enterprises can sell goods and solicit donations for $50 (with on-site making or demonstrations) or $100 (no on-site making or demonstrations). Registered non-profits who do not plan to sell goods or take donations are welcome to register for free (with a $50 refundable deposit).
