How it works
What else can you do on Fixable?
What can you get fixed?
How do fees and pricing work?
Fixable charges a 10% commission on all paid transactions on the platform, which covers platform fees and Fixable’s social/environmental impact initiatives. As a social enterprise, Fixable needs to charge a fee so it can be a viable, sustainable business in its own right, and that way maximise its impact.
Insurance on Fixable
I’m Brendan Norris, alias Norry, the founder of Fixable, and I'm building something I wish existed. Why?
Firstly, I detest waste. I especially hate throwing something away (there is no "away") because it's broken and I can't fix it. Which leads me to the second reason. I'm no good at fixing things; my brain just doesn't seem to be wired that way. But I know there are many clever people in every neighbourhood who *are* wired that way. Whether it's mending clothes, electronics, furniture, appliances, toys, etc, I want to celebrate their skill and resourcefulness. So I decided to build a way for people like me to connect with people like them. Fixable’s ultimate goal is to make repair and reuse a social norm again — what everyone just does.
When something breaks or stops working and you manage to repair it and give it new life (either yourself or with someone's help), you genuinely feel as though you've won. You save money. You prolong something's life. You avoid waste. You get a win over bad luck and dodgy manufacturing. The sense of accomplishment can be profound. It's a wonderful feeling, and it can be addictive.
