Online apparel vendors for small school

  • 1.  Online apparel vendors for small school

    Posted 13 days ago

    Hello Everyone,

     

    We are looking for recommendations of online providers that can provide college swag (apparel, etc) and that will set up a merchandising website that can be integrated with our homepage.  We want all sales and inventory management to be handled by the vendor.

    We are a small school without a focus on sports.  So, I'd love to hear any recommendations that you may have for reasonable, scalable vendor options.

     

    Thank you very much!

     

    Ally

    Ally-

     

    Have you looked at Follett On-Demand?  They offer a customized website and handle all the transactions and inventory.  I believe you have to meet a minimum sales threshold, but I'm not positive about that.  Below is a

    link to their website:

    Thanks!

    ​We also use Follett Advanced OnLine for our institutional store.  We first used their Advanced OnLine feature for our athletic fan zone page.  It has worked out very well with a good average turn around time from ordering to receiving.  We also have a separate log in for our employees to purchase personal items.  It's great because there is no inventory involved.
