Become a Vendor

Earn money today!

New Vendor Orientation is held Tuesdays and Fridays at 10:00 a.m.
Meet at the Real Change Vendor Center in Pioneer Square, at 96 S Main St, Seattle, WA 98104.
All new vendors, and vendors who have been inactive for six months or more, will be required to attend a new orientation.
No personal identification is required to become a vendor, and vendors are not required to have any kind of license beyond a Real Change badge to sell the paper in the Seattle area.

After completing orientation, vendors will receive 10 free papers. Vendors may return to the office at any time and purchase additional papers to sell and earn income. Real Change vendors buy the paper for $0.60 per copy and sell it in the community for $2.

Vendors who wish to continue selling the paper must attend a sales training within one month of attending orientation. Vendors will receive 10 free papers and a high-visibility vendor vest after completing sales training.

Real Change does not require vendors to work a minimum number of hours or sell a minimum number of papers. In addition, vendors may sell wherever they choose as long as they abide by the “first come/first serve” and priority “post” policies.

Become part of the Real Change community!
As an active Real Change vendor, you'll have access to a Real Change mailing address, computer and phone labs, additional training and support opportunities, Case Management, a clothing closet, and so much more.
