You have the option of joining the North American Wild Fur Shippers Council. For a onetime payment of $50, you can become a Wild Fur Shippers Council member for two years.
The NAWFSC membership year runs from November 1 to October 31, therefore new memberships will expire on October 31st, 2018.
Membership is optional.
The commission rate charged on your fur will be reduced by 2% for the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 seasons. Currently the commission rate for all trappers is 11% but as a member of the NAWFSC you will pay only 9%.
NAWFSC members using NAFA’s collectors, depots or pick up services will also receive free freight in Canada or handling charges in the USA for two years. Freight to the Depot or collector location is not covered.
Based on these two benefits alone, many trappers save the cost of membership in the first year.
In addition, the International Trapper Magazine is available, at a nominal charge, to trappers of North America who ship to NAFA!
The savings are real and they’re substantial. All Shippers benefit by shipping their fur to NAFA, whether they are members or not.
Every shipper is:
- Guaranteed the largest buyer attendance and the most competitive prices
- Guaranteed NAFA’s global promotion efforts will continue and expand
- Guaranteed access to world fur markets
- Guaranteed that your fur becomes part of the most respected wild fur collection in the world
- We believe we can get better prices now—and higher prices in the future—if more trappers join our partnership and send their furs to NAFA.
