4 Online Marketplaces to Find Wholesale Inventory

Oct 23, 2022

Inflation, changing consumer attitudes, and post-pandemic behavior have many retailers scrambling when it comes to figuring out what their customers are willing to buy. The largest online marketplaces –– Amazon, eBay, Walmart, and Target –- have also made big changes that effect retailers and sellers that use them. The changes in consumer demand and inventory policies have forced wholesalers to look for smaller marketplaces to sell to buyers. So, what are the alternatives to use if you need to find inventory or sell it? If your brand sells wholesale or you are a store buyer, you have options.

Bulletin (Acquired by EmeraldX)

Bulletin is the wholesale operating system connecting the next generation of brands and omni-channel retailers. The platform was created by former retail buyers who wanted to build a wholesale solution that helps stores with cash flow, and a marketplace experience that helps them find the very best brands – the ones customers will notice, fall in love with, and keep coming back for.


Bulletin’s platform is simple and straightforward for brands and retailers alike. Our slick order management tools, shipping guidelines, invoicing system, Direct Messaging feature and more make online wholesale a breeze. That way, brands can simply focus on making knockout products and growing their wholesale business, while retailers can focus on fine-tuning their assortments, inventory planning, and engaginWholesag customers.

Net-15 payout terms mean brands never have to worry about getting paid on-time, and net-60 payment terms for retailers means store owners can make profits on retail sales before paying a single wholesale invoice. We’re built to help you succeed – and sell! That’s what Bulletin is all about. Bulletin was recently acquired by Emerald, ASD Market Week’s parent company, to extend our capabilities for the retailers and exhibitors that participate in our trade shows. Here are the top seven marketplaces that may be worth your consideration. Retailers can  create an account and wholesalers can apply for an account.


Tundra is a wholesale platform for both retail and wholesale. Store owners can purchase from 150,000+ items that are shipped for free from a variety of wholesale suppliers and brands. Tundra offers shipping, payment terms, and great solutions for retailers to try and test brands that are sold on the platform in their store. For wholesale, sellers can set low minimums and upload their merchandise to be seen by retailers shopping the platform (currently they aren’t taking commissions on orders you receive). Sellers can also advertise products or their brands as a whole. Tundra doesn’t accept Amazon or third-party sellers. Photo Courtesy of Tundra | Lemon Lorraine’s


RangeMe is a product discovery platform used by verified, vetted retail buyers from large retail businesses in the U.S. and Canada to source new products for their retail stores. Suppliers can create free product profiles. RangeMe matches wholesalers and suppliers with retail buyers looking for new product categories they specify that they purchase from. RangeMe is 100% free to sign-up and doesn’t collect any fees or a percentage of orders placed. It does have premium services.

Hello Abound

Similar to Tundra, Hello Abound focuses on connecting independent makers with small to medium-sized retailers. Both brands and retailers have to apply to be a part of the platform. Like Faire, the platform is the ordering and relationship management platform. Photo courtesy of Hello Abound
