Lower Costs

Costs can add up quickly in business and let’s face it, none of us would be in business if we couldn’t make money.  We are here to help you succeed and make the most you can as a fellow entrepreneur.  These are just a few ways we can potentially help you lower your costs:

  • Shipping
  • Packing
  • Advertising
  • Manufacturing
  • Distribution Channel
  • Low Fees Per Order

We can potentially help lower your shipping and packing costs due to the volume of the “collective”.  You may choose to utilize our fulfillment centers, further reducing your overhead and headache with staff, storage, and order fulfillment.  We can make sure your orders are packaged, shipped, and update the proper information for customers.  All you have to do is check your bank account!

As a collective of merchants, we also have the ability to offer discounted manufacturing.  You may have a solid system in place already, but if you don’t we can help connect you with manufacturing partners who may be able to help and give you a cheaper rate.

Our fees are minimal when compared to traditional channels.  Whether you’re a brick and mortar retailer or a manufacturer, our fees were setup so everyone can benefit from the added sales channel Coastal Collective provides.  Our fees are a flat rate of 15%.  We do not charge listing fees.  We do not charge sign up fees.  There is absolutely no risk to you at all.

Large Scale Benefits

We all know the biggest struggles of being a small business is just that, being a small business.  This is why we named the company Coastal Collective.  From coast to coast, we are a collective of merchants and manufacturers that can leverage our unity as one.  The larger we get, the more we will be able to leverage on your behalf.  This could be anything from printing, manufacturing, shipping, etc.

The first of these that we are leveraging is order fulfillment and shipping if you choose to do so.  Wouldn’t life be so much simpler if an order was just fulfilled when it was placed and you could focus on your products?  Wouldn’t it be nice if this could be done for cheaper than you can even rent a space to house your products each month, not to mention the labor involved in shipping it.  Tired of ordering something online and getting 2nd day shipping for cheaper than you can snail mail your own products to customers?

By utilizing our collective whole, we can help you expand your business exponentially.

Direct Payments

No more waiting weeks to get paid.  When we built our platform, we built it from the ground up with the idea of getting you paid fast.  When you first sign up for your account, you will be taken through a few steps to link to an account that you would like funds deposited to immediately upon an order being placed.  Our fees are taken out at the point of sale, so no need to worry with these fees billed later on.  You don’t have to worry with or hire another accountant to try and track down money or payments.  Your money is on its way to your bank account by the time you get the new order email.  Now that’s nice!

Expand Your Product Line

Whether you work trade shows or have a retail location, selling the hottest best items on the market is crucial.  Through our platform you can find other products you may want to carry, or even better someone might want to carry yours!  We also allow our merchants to sell Coastal Branded gear as well.

More Time to Enjoy Life

We have laid out many of the benefits above, but all this equals more time for you to get back to enjoying life.  We can help grow your sales, simplify your processes, and save you money along the way.  All of this while providing another avenue for you to sell your product.

Merchant Awards & Rewards

More to come on this.  We are developing ways to say thank-you and recognize those that excel with great products, great service and represent the values we stand for as a company.
