    1. Sam, I just tried to list my candles on your website. Yet it appears I can’t select my location in the United States. All Cities that come up are only for India? I am based in the USA. Can I be a vendor with you? If so, how? Thanks so much!

  9. I closed a retail pro shop and have all new first quality activewear, hangers etc. and looking to partner with someone who sells online because I do not have time to work it. I have around 4000 pieces of all variety that I can email you. I have a complete price list and description with pictures and I would just like to get what I can for and have someone else also make very good money. Email if interested. Located in Arizona. I can do all the shipping if you can sell it…

  10. Hello,
    I have a studio production for arts crafts and home decor. I am a ceramist implementing my unique glazed ceramics into home decor and interior design field. Mirrors with ceramic tiles border, ceramic cabinet knobs, wall plaques, furniture with ceramic insertion and so on. I am based in Canada now but soon moving back relocating to Europe. As the websites named here are mostly active in North America, anyone knowing of something similar in Europe?
    Thanks in advance.

  11. Great information, thank You so much for researching opportunities for people trying to get their foot in the door.

  12. Thank you for this post it was very helpful. I so have one question though,
    before you approach these places what are the most important things to have ready for them besides product? Looking for… white background pictures, order sheets, contracts, that kind of thing. Which ones are a must have?
    Thank you again

  13. thank you so much for sharing this. I will definitely proceed with doing more research to find the right fit for our children’s line of products.

  14. Thank you for your research. I do wish there was more transparency for pricing. Some wholesale marketplaces charge a percentage of your wholesale and some charge a monthly fee. There is quite a range, but that information could be very helpful to add so we can plan a growth budget that fits. Thank you.

  15. Great tutorial on youtube.. At the moment I am selling my designs on print and demand platform. like society6 and redbubble. I am a bit confused here… I want to search for someone to buy my products like t-shirt designs and for home decor(pillows, wall murals etc) Where do I search? should I look for distributors, wholesales retailers?

    1. People like me who use Faire and other wholesalers are asking them to partner with print on demand services like print for red bubble, threadless and others. I know that threadless has a whole sale option but they’re not integrated with these wholesale sites . I think this is the next step that’s going to happen because many fashion and T-shirt brands are asking for this because they don’t want to have to stock T-shirts.

      When it comes to prints , the problem is that a print needs to be bagged and boarded for retail sales, a retailer doesn’t want just a stack of prints that don’t have a backing board. So I print my prints at a local print shop, and then I bag and board them myself or pay somebody to do it. Plus, I sign them and add a certificate of authenticity, as well as a postcard with some other information where people can find me. I think it’s an added touch. Plus none of these print on demand places like red bubble, threadless our society six will bag and board your print so that it’s ready for retail.

  16. Is there a downside to being listed on too many of these platforms? My jewelry is currently listed on Faire & Abound, but I’ve been approached by a newer platform (JuniperMarket) to list with them as well. Does it look bad to buyers? Or is it good to be on multiple platforms so you have more visibility and opportunities?

    1. I personally feel like it’s best to be on as many platforms as possible. Most brands will use as many distributors as they can as the rich more retailers. Not all retailers are on every platform nor do all retailers. Use all the platforms. Plus different platforms are going to share you out differently to different retailers so no more wholesalers you use the better chance of your discovery.

    1. By far I sell the most products on Faire. I just got my first order from Trada. Also, Juniper really helped me with the upload of my catalog. All I had to do was download an excel doc from faire and give it to Juniper and they grabbed all of the images and all the information and kind of did it for me which was cool because now I have over 100 products on Faire. I got rejected from Abound twice, but maybe it was because my Shopify store wasn’t up to par. I am currently updating my Shopify store because it integrates well with NTWRK which is a live selling platform kind of like What Not.

  17. This information was very helpful. Several of these wholesalers I have worked with , some with good response and others not so good. I am glad to know someone is willing to share information about other companies in the market..
