Creating Online Sales Opportunities
The International Housewares Association has partnered with MarketTime to offer a robust, year-round e-commerce opportunity for its members and buyers. The platform, Connect COMMERCE, integrates with Connect 365 and help meet the desire of retailers to both discover new products and purchase them directly online.
Connect 365 is an enhanced and expanded version of IHA’s online marketplace Housewares Connect 365. Connect Commerce is an e-commerce market that enables retailers to place orders for many of the products found on Connect 365 and will give them access to manufacturer-trained salespeople who have local knowledge of retailers’ regions and possibly their stores. The Brandwise Ecosystem, which will power Connect COMMERCE, processes over three million wholesale orders every year and includes access to more than 290,000 retailers.
IHA is excited to offer this new e-commerce service to our members and the retail community. For more than a decade, Housewares Connect 365 has been IHA’s online marketplace assisting buyers in finding new products and suppliers. Adding Connect COMMERCE expands the updated platform’s functionality, marrying the robust search and discovery capabilities of the new Connect 365 site with the ability to complete transactions immediately online.
