When it comes to selling your products in bulk to retailers like chain stores there are a few things you need to consider. Firstly you’ll need a plan, on how to produce your product in quantities. We’re talking about fulfilling orders of 5,000 units or more. This might require setting up a warehouse by or partnering with a manufacturer overseas.


On the other hand, if you’re targeting retailers such as boutiques getting in is comparatively easier. The only catch is that it requires effort as you have to approach them one account at a time and rely on representatives for states.. If you’re willing to put in the hustle there’s no wrong way to sell your product.

Waksman suggests exploring avenues for selling your products to retailers. You can choose between selling to buyers who purchase for all their stores nationwide or opting for regional buyers responsible, for around 100 stores instead of thousands. Another option is targeting stores where store managers and owners make individual purchase decisions.

If you’re in the business of selling luxury items another approach could be to develop an version of your product marketed under a distinct brand name. This approach can help generate revenue and support the sales of your priced offerings.

Expanding your market by selling your Etsy product to retailers is a strategy for elevating its reach. By implementing tactics you can generate profits. Maintain the demand, for your premium products. For details feel free to explore Retail MBAs resources.

Are you an Etsy seller looking to expand your business by selling to retailers? Karen Waksman, the founder of Retail MBA has shared some tips and strategies to help you kickstart this journey.

Producing in Bulk for Larger Retailers

If your goal is to sell your products to retailers it’s essential to devise a plan, for production. This might involve setting up a warehouse near your location and hiring workers or partnering with manufacturers

Working with Small Retailers and Boutiques

Selling to retailers and boutiques can be easier. Requires more effort. You’ll need to approach them one account at a time. Alternatively you can rely on sales representatives in states unless you’re willing to travel with your products.

Engaging Corporate Buyers

If your target is a retailer like Macys there will be a designated buyer for purchasing products for all their stores. This buyer serves as the contact point for acquiring inventory across their network.

Collaborating with Regional Buyers

retailers have buying offices that allow you to sell on a more localized level. For instance if there are 500 stores within the retailers network each regional buyer would handle 100 stores of overseeing them all.

Catering to Buyers

In cases individual store managers or owners, within retail chains have the authority to make purchasing decisions specifically for their own stores.
This means that you have the opportunity to sell known brands but limit your sales to a store.

Creating an Additional Product

Suppose you have a high end product listed on Etsy. In that case you can consider developing an version of the same product and target it towards a larger market. This strategy can help generate income and sustain the sales of your priced products.

Getting Started

Expanding your Etsy business by selling to retailers can be an approach. The right method will depend on the nature of your product and the specific type of retailer you wish to target. Karen Waksman, founder of Retail MBA offers training resources designed to assist individuals in monetizing their products.
