Brands across most categories and families of business are eligible to apply to participate. Brands outside of the retail industry (e.g. entertainment, media) may also apply for participation, along with companies that provide a service. The categories we cannot currently support with The Market are maternity, perishable food, sunglasses and athletic sneakers.
Brands can participate if they have a U.S. bank account, W9, ACH and a valid U.S. shipping address.
Yes! At its core, it's all about bringing in newness—opening The Market to brands and offers that are fresh to Macy's and to our shoppers.
The Market @ Macy's is not a revenue share—rather, brands that participate are required to pay a one-time, up-front, all-inclusive fee, which is due 30 days before entering The Market @ Macy's. Brands that participate keep 100% of their sales.
The one-time fee varies and is determined by three factors: the store, the number of pods and the length of time. Prices also vary by season. For more specific information on pricing, apply now.
The Market @ Macy's welcomes vendors of varying maturity, across all different categories and industries. All brands must meet the following requirements:

Brands are required to be in The Market for a minimum of one month up to a maximum of three months*. The length of time you stay is flexible. This also means you can stagger your launches and go into different stores at different times.
*Note: if you are looking to participate in The Market during the holiday season (November-January), we require that you stay in the space for the full three months.
We book brands in advance, so this is based on availability. Start by emailing email@example.com with your request. Our team will work with you to come up with a solution, like returning at a different time or location.
We encourage all of our brands to continue and grow with us.
You can find out more about each location in our Location Guide. If you are looking for additional information, please go to each mall's website.
The Market is located in high traffic areas within the Macy’s store, typically near a main entrance, escalator, or major thoroughfares. Your exact location within The Market is decided by our team, so ensure you have the optimal space for your brand.
We prefer that all brands are GS1 certified (requires a certification of proof). If you are not GS1 certified, Macy’s will provide you GS1 certified UPCs, free of charge, for use in your time in the Market.

Macy's follows the NRF Retail Fiscal Calendar (formerly 4-5-4 calendar). However, you are paid no later than every third Monday after the fiscal month closes for your sales the month prior.
