Basic Product FAQ

What is MakerOS?

MakerOS is an all-in-one business management solution for maker businesses.

What is a “maker business”?

A maker business is any business where a product is produced for a client. Common examples are 3D printing service providers, design houses, job shops, and makerspaces, but we're regularly meeting people with a type of maker business we hadn't even considered!

What does MakerOS do?

MakerOS increases the profitability, efficiency, and, scalability of maker businesses by managing tasks such as project tracking, inventory management, quoting, and invoicing, all from the convenience of your browser.

What challenges does it solve?

MakerOS saves time and money by streamlining the quoting process, consolidating project tracking, maintaining inventory, facilitating communication with your customers, and managing payments. To put it simply, MakerOS does in one place what you'd have to go to several services to accomplish in the past.

What devices does it work on?

MakerOS works on any internet enabled device with a web browser: desktop, tablet, smartphones, even in the car on the Tesla browser!

How much does it cost?

During our public beta, MakerOS is 100% free to sign up. Then, when you take payment from a customer, we collect a small fee. By default, the fee for using MakerOS is 10% plus $0.75 per transaction off the top. If you're interested in a reduced transaction fee, contact sales@makeros.com, and to learn more about where the fee goes, click here.

We also offer a number of premium services which are available at a reasonable cost. To find out more, check out our Services page.

How do I get it?

Click here to sign up for free. Once you've set up your OS you can either place a link directly on your site, aimed at your registered MakerOS address (such as “yourcompany.makeros.com”), or set up your Integrations and Widgets to install the project creation widget and let your customers access your OS even easier.

What does "white-label" mean?

Being a "white-label" software means that you won't be stuck using the MakerOS logos or colors. Upload your own logo and favicon so that your OS can be customized with your company's brand.

When will it be available?

Right now! MakerOS launched its public beta in February of 2016, so you can either sign up now or go to our website to find out more.
