#1 Brand and Retailer Profiles
Creating your brand or retailer profile is the first step to a successful journey on fashionTrade. You can see your profile as your passport to the world of fashion wholesale: it contains your logo, hero picture, biography, price range and contact details. In addition, Brands can add their markups and Retailers their shop(s) details and Facebook and Instagram handle. Your profile is the first thing a new partner will see when searching to connect with you, so don’t forget to add your latest marketing materials and any eye-catching information!
At fashionTrade, we get really excited about bringing together new, relevant business partners. This is why our Connect feature allows you to search for new partners based on location and product categories. Have you found the perfect partner? Just hit the ‘connect’ button and wait for your invitation to be accepted. To make their life even easier, Brands also can search for new partners on our Retailer map!
Hot Tip: Don’t forget to add your shops’ addresses to be findable on the map!
# 3 Brand Showroom
Having a Brand profile is great, but having your own Digital Showroom is even better!
Have you been eyeing a digital showroom for your Brand, but are stuck without the time or resources to develop one? Our latest feature allows you to create several showrooms in just a couple of minutes. You can fill your showrooms with your collections that link directly to the styles you currently have available to sell.

#4 Order API
On fashionTrade, brands can connect with new partners but more importantly also sell their collections. This means that having up-to-date style and product information is very important. In order to do that, you can update your excel file and send it to us or you can use our order API and let technology (and our team) do all the work for you. The API will connect your system to our platform and automatically import any new data.

This information will also appear in your checkout, order overview and confirmation email.
Of course, we have loads of other cool features from 2017 including: promotion tagging for brands, prepack uploads and email notifications allowing you to stay up to date with your activity on the platform.
