FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Mendemic is an online sales platform for art products, crafts and clothes made in the island of Mallorca.
Our main goal is to acknowledge the work done by small- and mid-scale producers, to give them a tool to create awareness and make them grow.
At Mendemic we’ve invented a formula that embraces the main types of online business.
We are not a marketplace but we do announce the author of our products so that our client sees that behind that sculpture or that wearing garment there’s someone with a name and last name or a local brand.
We are not an usual dropshipping business because we know exactly where our products come from, even though like in that type of business we do not have stock in our premises and products are shipped from origin directly to our consumer.
We are a signature multi brand store with a social, local, fair and responsible function.
About the web

We can advance that we’re foreseeing adding French, Portuguese, Italian, Norwegian, Dutch, Finnish and Swedish as we expand the market to those language-speaking countries.
We do not ask for any information to get access to any part of our site unless it is specifically requested, like in case of shipping. The requested information can include personal name or company, address, email address and phone number.
