Helping retailers discover and shop the best brands on the planet
Bulletin empowers entrepreneurs to build the business of their dreams. Bulletin’s wholesale marketplace connects independent retailers with the best brands on the planet, and powers local retail in both the U.S. and Canada.
While it's never been easier to start a consumer brand, thanks to platforms like Etsy and Shopify, breaking into wholesale is still a cumbersome and expensive process for brands, especially with trade shows being closed throughout the pandemic. Our platform makes it easy and affordable for these brands to expand into wholesale and start selling their wares with online or brick-and-mortar retailers around the United States and Canada. Bulletin primarily works with independent retailers like boutiques, spas, wellness centers, bookstores, cafes, small grocers and more. These retailers can seamlessly transact with over 1,200 brands and shop our marketplace with Net-60 terms, which helps them with cash flow and budgeting. Meanwhile, Bulletin pays brands upon inventory shipment, which means they can focus on producing and perfecting their inventory, rather than chasing down unpaid invoices from retailer partners. Our financial terms are a win-win for both parties and have helped us hit 30% month over month growth since Q1 of 2020.
