Product discovery and sourcing platform RangeMe is expanding its services, now allowing U.S. retail buyers to purchase directly from suppliers. Along with one-button purchasing, the company offers a multi-order add-to-cart feature, and easily accessible order details and history.
RangeMe CEO and founder Nicky Jackson stated the new direct purchasing capability will provide suppliers with an opportunity to grow their business.
“We exist to make the world's suppliers and retailers more productive and successful and with this new capability to help SMB retailers in the U.S. get products faster through a frictionless process,” said Jackson. “The checkout feature will increase product speed to market while simultaneously benefiting suppliers with a fully scaled sales channel to increase sell-through and create and nurture new retail relationships.”
Additionally, RangeMe parent company ECRM will be hosting a 2022 Global Market: Spring Buying Days showcase, bringing together suppliers and retail buyers to network virtually. As part of the showcase, RangeMe is allowing select food, beverage, health, and beauty suppliers to sell their products with no commission fees.
The event includes speakers from retailers like Walmart, Farmstead, and Allume Group.
Product discovery for buyer participants runs from March 7 through March 31, during which buyers can find products within their respective categories on RangeMe and book a 15-minute face-to-face virtual meeting based on the supplier's listed availability.
Qualified buyers can also buy products directly from those suppliers that are set up for ordering. Scheduled meetings will take place March 28 through April 1 on ECRM Connect and run 24 hours a day to accommodate global participants.
