WANTD

A direct to consumer marketplace and influencer network for brands

WANTD is a D2C consumer marketplace for fashion and footwear brands to launch and sell product. We do the things Shopify is unable to do; we provide multiple channels to sell (e.g. live commerce, marketplace, auctions), influencer networks, and order fulfillment in a mobile-first experience. We solve the cold-start problem for brands and enable them to remain focused on product creation.
