MarketNation has partnered with several leaders in distribution, third-party (3PL) and reverse logistics, such as D&H Distributing and Arvato Supply Chain Solutions, to empower brands to embrace D2C within weeks, not months or years.
D2C Made Easy™ is a complete solution for both physical and digital products; it enables brands to effortlessly make their full product offerings available across all the major marketplaces such as eBay, Amazon, Google Shopping, and more – with the option to source products from any fulfillment channel they choose.
The +Marketplace Platform™ for brands is now fully integrated with these partners’ premier physical and digital product catalog offerings and respective supply and distribution chains. By also providing Merchant-of-Record, Seller-of-Record, and end-to-end customer service and returns management, regardless of where a product is sourced or where it is shipped, D2C Made Easy™ enables the brand to ensure complete control over every part of the direct-to-consumer experience.
By providing Authenticity Always™, where every product and every order is Authenticity Guaranteed™, Authenticity Delivered™, and Authenticity Rewarded™, MarketNation delivers a vastly improved consumer journey over what is experienced on marketplaces today.
Commenting on the acceleration of innovation in ecommerce, Michael Konopka, Vice President of Digital Solutions at Arvato Supply Chain Solutions, adds: “We are excited to partner with MarketNation as their primary digital warehouse for brands wishing to sell on marketplaces. We believe the D2C Made Easy™ approach removes the complexity of D2C selling, especially when attaching digital products as well as creating brand-to-brand physical and digital bundles.”
Fred Eddy, Vice President of Retail Sales for D&H Distributing, adds: “We are excited to support Brands wishing to add 3P products and physical bundles to their marketplace offerings as part of the D2C Made Easy™ program.”
Lorcan Sheehan, CEO of supply chain advisory firm PerformanSC Supply Chain, confirms: “The D2C Made Easy™ solution provides brands with the opportunity to connect products in known distribution channels with consumers across multiple marketplaces while providing much-needed product assurance and innovative incremental value options to those consumers. With MarketNation, the grey market that plagues so many brands and their Distribution Partners, can be a thing of the past.”
In collaboration with their Distribution Partners, brands set the rules for easily making their products available directly to consumers. The D2C Made Easy™ solution utilizes the company’s patent-pending Margin Maximizer™ smart technology to rapidly, safely, and cost-efficiently distribute brand-authenticated products from known partners directly to consumers across multiple marketplaces in a manner that is always under the brand’s control.
D2C Made Easy™ enable brands to select the Direct-to-Consumer engagement level that best aligns with their market and growth objectives:
• SILVER: Brands enable incremental sales controlled by the brand across all the marketplaces of their choice, managed by their distribution partner;
• GOLD: Brands enable incremental sales controlled by the brand across all the marketplaces of their choice, from all known partners and fulfillment channels with direct access to the platform, for comprehensive channel management;
• PLATINUM: Brands enable incremental sales, simultaneously leveraging 1P and 3P opportunities across all the marketplaces of their choice, at their own website and other authenticated brand websites.
Steve Dueck, President and CEO of MarketNation, renowned marketplace veteran and a pioneer in the D2C space, concludes: “I am well aware of the pain points that exist for brands and their distribution partners wanting to sell D2C. The D2C Made Easy™ solution solves all of them. Most important, D2C Made Easy™ aligns the brand’s Retail Sales division with the efforts of its own ecommerce department for maximum overall sales, profitability, and brand impact.”
