Vendors set their own hours, they can work as much or as little as they like.
Depends on sales. Magazines are purchased for 75 cents each and sold for $2, giving a vendor a profit of $1.25/issue sold. However, there are frequent opportunities to receive free issues, so the profit would be $2/issue sold on those. During Hope in Shadows Season, calendars are bought for $10 and sold for $20. Additionally, many vendors receive tips regularly.
Megaphone Magazine is offering flexible employment opportunities for people experiencing homelessness or living on a low-income through selling the street paper in Victoria. Megaphone magazine has taken over for Victoria Street Newz.
To become a Megaphone vendor come attend a one hour training session. At the end, you'll receive an official City of Victoria license and badge that allows you to sell Megaphone on public property in the city of Victoria. You choose your sales location and we will set you up with 10 free magazines to get started (that's worth $20!). After that each issue costs 75cents and you sell it for $2, keeping the profit.
You can sell as little or as much as you like and you set your own hours! We are available for on-going support and coaching.
