Introducing the A+ Discount Marketplace!

Okay, so, this is exciting! This is the very nascent, brand new version of a space where A+ members can get discounts with partners of Autostraddle! The goal of this marketplace is to support all things independent. By being an A+ member, you are supporting independent queer media and everything we do here. LITERALLY, A+ memberships fund half of our whole budget, and mostly we just use that to pay our queer and trans team! Then, now, as of today, you get cool discounts for supporting indie businesses, especially ones that are indie, that are LGBTQ, women and POC-owned. We are prioritizing indie partners because we know what it’s like to be an indie business and we know that the people in our audience like to shop small.

Thie A+ Discount Marketplace is going to grow in perpuity as we welcome more partners, but for starters, we encourage you to shop with our first 9! Thank you for being an A+ member, and if you haven’t joined yet, there are few better ways to make sure Autostraddle sticks around than by joining A+! Honestly, do you remember those coupon books? It’s like, you buy into the coupon book, you support a good cause, and then you get to enjoy discounts all year? It feels a lot like that! We hope that if you’re an A+ member, that you’ll enjoy and also stay tuned for more cool, indie partners to shop with!

  1. this is so cooooool
    also dovetail’s overalls are *chef’s kiss*. got lucky and found a pair that fit me at goodwill several years back and they truly have been my go-to work pair ever since

  2. I really like this idea! Out of all the memberships I’ve ever had for websites/podcasts/etc., A+ is by far the best at continually evolving with fun new perks. The cost of a membership was worth it to me back when I first subscribed, but even more so now. Thank you Nico!

  3. As someone who is both gay and works in outdoor education and is 110% in love with Dovetail’s pants and overalls….this is very exciting. I don’t think more perfect or functional pants exist—I wear them every day.

  4. These are really cool! Are there plans to expand into European sites as well? Or is that not feasible? Any savings made for us on the other side of the pond are immediately eaten by postage and customs charges.

  5. That’s a pretty cool offer. By the way, can you buy these things only in an online store or are they also sold on marketplaces? The bigger question here is what payment services are available to me as a buyer of adult toys? From what I know, there are already quite a few different offers on the market for payment services https://www.codica.com/blog/best-payment-solutions-for-online-marketplaces/ that are available for use today. However, I still don’t understand which ones are right for me. Where can I find this information on marketplaces?
