RangeMe is a Platform for:
Retail Ready Suppliers- There are many different definitions of what it means to be retail ready. At a minimum, suppliers publishing products on RangeMe should have a physical product that they are prepared to present to retail buyers.
Want to show buyers that your brand is retail ready? We recommend taking a look at becoming RangeMe Verified! Click here to find out more.
Note: If you indicate that your product is not ready for retail stores you will be required to answer the field “When will the product be available to ship to retail?”
Verified Retail Buyers- RangeMe validates all buyers at signup. Buyer profiles are not active until they have been approved and verified by a member of the RangeMe admin team to protect the integrity of the system.
Larger retailers using RangeMe to discover new products have multiple buyers using the platform from each region and category.
Note: Because RangeMe is a closed platform, only verified buyers are able to go on the platform and view products. Suppliers are not able to view products except their own.
Distributors- The RangeMe platform was designed for suppliers to list their own products to be discovered by retail buyers. We highly recommend that suppliers manage their own accounts. However, for the time being, it is acceptable for distributors to publish products on the platform for suppliers that they represent.
Note: Please be aware that these suppliers must be aware of and consent to your representation of their products on the platform. RangeMe reserves the right to ask for a confirmation from the supplier at any time.
In order to list products as a distributor:
- Please ensure that the supplier's company is indicated under brand
- We also request that you kindly provide us with the contact details of any suppliers that you are representing so that we are able to reach out to them if need be
RangeMe is NOT a Platform for:
Resellers: RangeMe was built to help retail buyers discover new products to be carried in their retail stores.
If you are not officially or directly connected to the manufacturer or official supplier of a product, then you should not be publishing that product on the platform.
Services/Applications for Consumers: RangeMe is an online platform that retail buyers use to discover retail-ready, consumer packaged products.
Services and applications for consumers are unfortunately not suitable for our platform as they cannot be sold to consumers in retail stores.
Note: There is a category that exists due to popular demand for Retailer Services, however, this category is not highly active at this time and is not used by all retailers. We recommend reaching out to any retailer you may be actively interested in to confirm there is not a better route for your service.
Products not getting approved?
Remember that your product must be of your physical products, not of a drawing, digital image, or concept.
Any resellers of brands that do not belong to them will not have their products approved. If you represent a brand and post products on the platform, you will be asked to provide a Letter of Authorization or a License to Represent said brand.
If for any reason you believe your products meet the above requirements but are not being approved, please feel free to reach out to our support team by clicking here.
