Consignd is an online marketplace, with a twist. Rather than allowing just anyone to sell their goods on the platform, Consignd puts the tough decisions in the hands of its expert curators and lets these professionals decide which handmade or vintage products are stylish and original enough to list for sale on the Consignd site.
If you’re an artist, trader, collector, or crafter, then you may be interested in selling your products on Consignd. Browse through the Collections that each expert curator has put together, and decide for yourself where your own products would fit in best on the site. Click the “Pitch” button next to the curator who you think would be most interested in promoting your products, and upload some basic information – like a description, price, and photos – of anything you would like to sell. The curator you’ve pitched will look for quality and originality when judging your products, and ultimately decide whether he would like to promote your wares as part of his or her Collection.
Although Consignd handles the promotion and marketing of products listed on its site, sellers stay in control of the selling and shipping process. Consignd opens sellers up to a wider audience of online influencers, who may not otherwise ever find out about their products. Buyers, meanwhile, benefit by being able to get access to one-of-a-kind goods that aren’t available on more generic marketplaces and e-commerce websites.
