Use Cases

Transform your existing ecommerce site into a B2C marketplace

You want to build a marketplace filled with quality brands, but they don’t want to jump through hoops

>70% of brands connecting to our retailers today prefer to use API integrations. Those brands are driving marketplace programs growing revenue 145%+ each month at our customers.

When brands are “put on the IT roadmap” and wait months to connect to your systems, 66% of brands will fail to connect to your systems and drop out from the onboarding process.
 
They need an easy way to start working with you.
