4. How does it work?
- We let designers/suppliers build their owh shop and they decide what products they want to feature.
- They decide the levels of stock to make available.
- Once an order is placed on via their shop, the designers/suppliers will automatically be sent an ‘order placed email’ from Mooch & Gander. This will tell them the buyer’s details and the details of the item they have ordered.
- The Designer/Supplier will then fulfill the order.
- Designers/Suppliers are then responsible for shipping the product to Mooch & Gander customer.
We started the business idea in August 2020 by researching and contacting British designers and Artisans and building a customer database through a social media.
The site went live in August 2020. This soft launch has enabled us to evaluate the whole user experience with relatively few customers. We then reviewed and introduced a fully automated site.
