a new perspective in wholesale

Store Readiness

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

Pricing Advice

Pricing is hard. Retailers say what your product will sell for at their store based on demographics, disposable incomes and customer preferences. Great for surveying pricing strategy.

In app Sourcing

Before retailers buy your goods, they can start a chat with you from within the app instead getting lost in long email threads. It's quick and easy and takes the stress out of doing business.

My experience with SKUE is great! I think it's a great way for makers to get their products retail ready.

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.

Oscar and I look forward to using your service. We truly appreciate your concept of bringing makers and retailers, such a great idea!
Andrea Mahefko
Maker, Biological Jewels
I loved having the feedback in pricing as well as if they would carry it in their store. The shops really did a nice job of writing for my product, so I appreciate that. And it made me think more about the design of my product.

The store owners' experienced perspective and comments are so beneficial when launching new products/collections. Big thank you!
