We are different from the traditional stockists. Here’s how:
The Hat Circle
It’s difficult to be accepted by a stockist. The process is complicated and doors are not always open to independent brands.
You can join and sell for free for 14 days* and we have a reasonable monthly fee after that.
Cost of labour
High initial investment on materials and time to create a product range.
You can create more styles as they sell based on the feedback from the customers.
All products need to be shipped to a warehouse, no flexibility to sell through other channels.
You ship directly to the customer from your home/studio when items are sold. You have full control of your stock.
Difficulty communicating through lots of back and forth emails.
We have a user friendly seller dashboard, where you can easily manage your listings.
Stock is to be sold only in one specific store for the entire period.
|Your products will be sold through 6 channels - thehatcircle.com, Facebook, Instagram, Google Shopping, Pinterest, Etsy*.|
Slow payouts, it can take up to a year which puts you in difficult financial situtation.
We automatically payout shortly after the customer receives the product.
None or very limited promotion provided to support your brand’s awareness and growth.
We feature your products on all our social media channels, so our 110K followers get to discover them.
Unsold stock returned to you every season. You often even have to cover the return shipping cost.
You don’t have to face a huge return of unsold stock, because stock remains on our site as long as you want.
