Traditional retail is declining, brands must find new markets. Online fashion sales are growing rapidly worldwide. Most major e-commerce sites across the world have also become marketplaces (no stock risk…). This makes brands available at a click to any buyer, even one at the other side of the planet.
Our ambition is to be the platform of intermediation between European brands and global e-tailers: bringing e-tailers turnkey sourcing and helping fashion brands to reach millions of new consumers.
A ONE STOP SHOP SOLUTION

Catalogue: How do you adapt content and photos at each site?

How about the translation:
THEAGENT stakes care of having translations produced by native speakers.
Isn’t it too expensive to ship internationally?
We have negotiated rates with different carriers, which are optimized for each configuration.

We solve the problem on a country by country basis (e.g. Southeast Asia, Brazil…). Strong tax incentives exist for cross-border sales in the marketplaces, particularly in the USA, Russia and China.

We have negotiated to decline returns outside Europe, or we organize returns locally
