Buddify helps Shopify stores partner with other Shopify stores in the US through cross-selling. Online Stores inside the Buddify App ("Buddies") can sell each other's products directly without requiring physical inventory or minimum order quantities, similar to a dropshipping relationship. Buddies give each other a discount of at least 25% off the retail price, as you would in a wholesale relationship.
Using Buddify is simple and easy.
Buddify works by allowing you to import and sell other US stores' products in your store, and also by giving other stores access to sell your products in their online store.
You choose products from other stores that you want to sell in your store.
Each supplier gives at least a 25% discount on their products on the Buddify platform. You can sell these products in your store at a price that suits you and vice versa.
So, once you sell an imported product, you buy the same product from the supplier at a discounted price. The supplier then ships the product to the end customer.
Yes, all the stores in our app are located in the US and all the products are shipped from the US.
As of now, Buddify is only available in the US. All the stores in the Buddify network are located in the US.
Installing Buddify is completely free with Brand Analysis & Partnership Suggestions. Monthly or yearly charge for Full Platform Access.
Store owners seeking to increase sales by having other stores sell their products can use Buddify to expand and grow their customer base.
Brands interested in building partnerships with other businesses can use Buddify to develop mutually beneficial relationships.
Store owners who want to provide a wider range of products to their customers and expand their offerings can utilize Buddify to achieve this goal.
Those interested in selling complementary products can use Buddify to offer customers a more complete experience. For example, a company that sells tennis socks can offer tennis t-shirts and shoes imported from a partner store.
Companies looking to sell contrasting products can use Buddify to offer their customers a wider variety of options. For example, a company selling swimwear can import skis or pullovers from a partner store to sell during the winter season.
Store owners who believe their audience may be interested in completely different products, but do not want to invest in inventory, can use Buddify to test these ideas.
New store owners who do not have inventory and do not want to invest in inventory or fulfill orders themselves can use Buddify to start selling thousands of partner products.
Those interested in selling their products in bulk to other stores within the upcoming Buddify wholesale platform can also use Buddify.
Stores can increase their average order value and conversion rate by combining their products with those of a partner store using Buddify.
It's actually quite simple. Let's say you are selling candles on your online store and normally sell your candles for $30 on your online store as the retail price. As the Supplier Brand, you could offer a 25% discount to your "Buddies." Your potential "Reseller Brands" can import your product and sell it for a price they decide, whether it's $25 or $35.
It doesn't matter for you because when a Reseller Brand sells your products, you receive $22.5 plus your shipping cost for that particular product. There's no commission or percentage of sales involved since we created Buddify to provide our brands with more flexibility with their pricing. Buddify does not charge any commission on your sales, allowing you to maximize your profit.
The scenario is reversed when you import a partner product into your online store. Let's say you import fragrance products from a Supplier Brand, and the original price of the product on the supplier brand's online store is $50. If the supplier brand offers a 30% discount for its "Buddies," you can sell this product for the best price you choose and purchase it from the supplier brand for $35 plus the shipping cost, making the difference your profit.
All of this is automated. When you sell a partner product, we'll create the checkout for you with the customer's address and the discount. All you have to do is click the "pay" button, and the product will be shipped by the supplier brand once the payment is received. The same applies if you are the Supplier Brand, only this time the Reseller Brand will see the "Pay" button and you will ship the product to the end customer.
Buddies are online stores within the Buddify app. In other words, every store in the Buddify ecosystem is called a buddy.
Retailers are stores that import products from other stores and sell these products in their stores.
Suppliers are stores that export products. In other words, suppliers supply products to the network, which are then sold by retailers.
Buddify offers the flexibility to partner with any brand present on the platform. All brands within Buddify have authorized partnering with other brands inside the platform, unless otherwise stated on the store info page. This means you can sell their products, even if they don't sell yours, and they can sell your products, even if you only sell products from some of the partners.
Absolutely! Buddify allows you to build partnerships with brands outside of your niche, as long as you believe your audience would be interested in their products. For example, if you sell rock-climbing products, you can partner with any brand that sells outdoor sports products or even winter sports products. This gives you the opportunity to speak to broader audiences and see if your audience is interested in other products while purchasing your products.
That might actually be an advantage for you! Being the first brand in your niche on Buddify could make other brands more interested in your products. Additionally, you could expand and diversify your product line by adding partner products from other niche brands to your online store. For example, if you are selling rock climbing products, you could start offering outdoor sports products to your audience. In turn, outdoor sports brands could offer your products to their customers, resulting in mutual growth for both brands. Don't let a lack of niche partners hold you back from exploring partnership opportunities on Buddify.
Partnering with other brands on Buddify can increase your sales and average order value by offering partner products to your customers. It also allows you to reach a wider audience and create awareness for your brand and products. Plus, Buddify reviews all brands every month to find potential partnership opportunities that could benefit everyone.
Yes, you can choose which brands to partner with on Buddify. Buddify provides you with potential partnership opportunities every month, but ultimately, the decision is up to you. You can partner with brands that align with your values and complement your products.
Both! With “Buddy” plan you can both become a supplier, allowing other stores to sell your products in their online stores, and be a retailer, allowing you to sell other stores' products in your online store.
Everything is automated in Buddify. Once an order comes in, a checkout is created for the importer/reseller store to buy the product from the supplier store, and the supplier store ships the product to the customer. Every store provides their shipping and return policies, which is always visible in the app, so you know how much you will pay for shipping if a supplier product is sold on your online store and can decide your shipping pricing freely.
Our regular pricing for the yearly plan is $300 ($25/mo), but as part of a limited-time promotion, we are currently offering it for only $84 ($7/mo).
