Note: RangeMe is not a platform like eBay or Amazon. We do not resell products.
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.
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?”
Want to show buyers that your brand is retail-ready? We recommend taking a look at becoming RangeMe Verified™! As a Verified brand, you prove to retail buyers on RangeMe that you have the prerequisite requirements to be sold in retail (ie. insurance, barcodes, packaging, clear images, labels, ingredients). Click here to find out more about getting RangeMe Verified™.
Verified Retail Buyers- All buyers who sign up for a RangeMe account must go through an authentication process to protect the integrity of the system. Only those that pass this process are verified as a buyer and allowed onto the platform.
Larger retailers using RangeMe to discover new products have multiple buyers using the platform for different regions and/or Categories.
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 other supplier profiles and products.
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, distributors may publish products for brands that they represent with their permission.
A distributor is not eligible for a buyer account.
Note: Please be aware that these brands must be informed and consent to the representation of their products on the platform by a distributor. 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 the 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
Service Providers- On the RangeMe platform suppliers can browse service providers that offer brands services such as Insurance, Shipping, Lending, Marketing, Photography, Legal, and more.

Retailer Services: In addition to products, services can be offered to our buyers. Any services that are to be offered to our service providers should all be listed under a supplier account and must select a retailer service category. However, this Category is currently not used by all retailers. We recommend reaching out to any retailer you are interested in to confirm the best route to share your service with them.
RangeMe is NOT a Platform for:
Resellers: RangeMe was built to help retail buyers discover new products that can be carried in their retail stores.
If you are not officially or directly connected to the manufacturer or an official supplier of a product, then your products will not be approved or accepted onto the platform.
Are your products not getting approved?
Remember that your product listing 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 the said brand.
If for any reason you believe your products meet the above requirements but are not being approved, please reach out to our Support Team by clicking here.
