We all shop, whether for pleasure or survival because we know what we want when we see it. Humans have been bartering and selling to get what they want since before recorded history. Clothes, food, entertainment; it’s part of our DNA. Last year alone there were over 5 trillion dollars of retail sales in the US; an estimated two-thirds of the U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) comes from retail consumption. Not to mention the money spent to support retail like financing and marketing costs. Tools are popping up left and right to make it easier to create an e-commerce brand from scratch: Amazon, Kickstarter, Shopify and Alibaba, but retail is still a scary world. Most of the reason it’s so scary is because you have to enter it alone. You have to risk the time, the money, do all the work yourself and there is no guarantee you’ll make a dime, no wonder people don’t all quit their 9-5’s tomorrow. But you are not alone. Kickfurther and the Brands who list with us know you are more than a passive shopper. You are an individual with resources, knowledge, and connections. You can play the game too, and the community can help. Team up with fellow Buyers, choose Brands whose products you believe in and whose management you trust. You choose your commitment, but no matter how small you can create value and earn along with everyone else.
