Information for Suppliers
How does it work?
The platform is an exclusive member's subscription for innovative, up and coming (and established!) brands to get their products discovered by and the opportunity to pitch directly to the UK’s leading retail buyers. If you want to see your products on shelf, then this is the platform for you.
Brands can set up their own profile which is where you can share their full brand story, USPs and more. The platform offers the ability to upload imagery, videos and the ultimate chance to be recognised.
Once your profile is set up, you can log on to the platform and list multiple SKUs with detailed product information for buyers to browse through. Buyer’s can filter down products to exactly what they’re looking for, giving your brand an even better chance to stand out from the crowd.
Suppliers can access exclusive features such as webinars from industry experts, messaging and video calls within the Platform, adding introduction videos and social media onto your brand profile and matchmaking with buyer range reviews!
Think you have the best product in the world? We want to hear from you!
Buyers are constantly looking for new brands to launch into their stores and lift their category, the Buyer’s Discovery Club gives you the platform to put your brand story and products directly in front of these buyers.
- Discover - You can search for products matching your range review specifications as well as filling out the details on your profile in order to enable automatic matchmaking.
- Sample - Once you have discovered a product you would like to try, you can request samples which are shipped directly to you from the supplier.
- Pitch - If you are happy with the product, you can request more information or send an invitation to pitch to the supplier where you will arrange a meeting time. This is all done via the platform's inbuilt video call feature so no personal details need to be exchanged!
- Commercials/Contracts - The supplier then provides commercials, including RRP, VAT, buy value and more. These will be sent over for you to agree and approve. A listing date can then be agreed along with JBP submissions and agreements are drawn up leading to both parties signing contracts.
- Listing - You can then start to list the new products in store or online.
