ENGAGE YOUR FAVorite BUYERS

Feedback, Guaranteed

While you focus on making great things, retailers weigh in with merchandising insights, like packaging and pricing so your products are in their best shape for the retail floor. Great for their business, and yours.

Warm Intros to Buyers

When you discover a buyer that matches your style and aesthetic, it's like magic. We guide you on reaching out during our monthly buying rounds when buyers on SKUE are looking for new lines and partnerships.

Commission Free Sales

Buyers purchase goods via our wholesale cart. Min orders and messaging is built in so you can keep all your conversations and sales history in one place. Less admin work means makers and buyers can focus on building lasting relationships.
We've had a lot of experience giving feedback to makers on SKUE and that's been really useful. We've found some really great products in the process.

It's a great place where you can be respectful and honest with feedback. We can tell makers what our customers
are looking for.
