11 Dec POP-Market and FFaNY Join Forces to Launch FFaNY365, Fashion Footwear’s First Online Wholesale Marketplace.
Wholesale fashion continues to evolve rapidly online. POP-Market, fashion’s innovative online B2B platform, has been a leading driver of this evolution and now is expanding in the Footwear industry, evidenced by the announcement of its strategic partnership with Fashion Footwear Association of New York, (FFaNY), the leading Fashion Footwear Trade Show, in New York.
POP-Market, which revolutionized and simplified the way the fashion wholesalers and retailers conduct business, offers powerful, patented, web and mobile-based selling and buying tools, and boasts the largest, wholesale online marketplace, trusted by over 50,000 retailers.
FFaNY states that its collaboration in creating FFaNY365 with POP-Market “is key for the future of the wholesale footwear industry, combining the best online- and offline- connection activities,” With FFaNY365, POP-Market will offer its online B2B platform to all FFaNY exhibiting brands, enabling them to showcase their collections online, generate buyer leads and receive online orders, 365 days a year.
The platform also brings efficiency for footwear retailers by providing them 24/7 access to their favorite brands, along with real-time alerts on style updates, available stock, best-sellers, editors’ picks and more. Furthermore, buyers can easily filter through new products based on brand, category, price and delivery.
Retailers compare the ease of using POP-Market and FFaNY365 to buying on Zappos.com for consumers, with boutique Dear Lucy saying that it “now makes placing wholesale orders as easy as buying on Zappos or Amazon.”
