What is a “sourcing request”?
A sourcing request is published on the Marketplace when a buyer is looking for a specific product or looking to identify new suppliers. We currently have 3 supermarket chains that are looking for new products and suppliers. Be the first to answer them!
How will this help your business?
It’s not always easy to get in touch with buyers or promote your products to new distributors. By publishing your products on the Marketplace and answering sourcing requests, your products become immediately visible to buyers from over 40 brands!
How does the Marketplace work?
Buyers use it to find new products and/or suppliers by typing keywords in the search bar. If they don’t find the products they’re looking for, they can publish a sourcing request. To make your products visible to buyers, first you need to upload your products onto the Marketplace. This saves you time and money, as you no longer need to invest in expensive tradeshows!
