April 6, 2017

The Veteran Market is a new website launched by a founding member of The American Legion Task Force aimed at creating a place where the public can buy and sell good from verified veterans.

Veterans can get “vetrified” on the site via open source information from The American Legion, the Department of Veterans Affairs and Dun and Bradstreet.

“It’s a really short process to get vetrified. It’s one page, you can immediately start uploading the product information that you sell,” said Mike Phipps, co-founder of Veteran Market, managing director of Millennium Group Int’l and founding member of The American Legion Business Task Force

Although similar to other e-commerce platforms like Etsy, this website offers a centralized location for the public to buy from those who have served in the military. The site is available for registration now and will open to the public soon.

A new website will serve as a “one-stop shop” for those seeking to buy goods and services from veterans and military spouses. The Veteran Market is an e-commerce platform where verified veterans, military spouses and businesses can sell their products online. The Veteran Market can be used by all types of businesses, ranging from home-based entrepreneurs to established businesses. Once sellers have created their space on the Veteran Market, they also can connect their social media accounts (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram) to promote themselves. The Veteran Market website opened to the public on April 1.
