Our community is made up of the small, unique, and independent businesses that make local retail so special. By cutting out the middleman (read: pricey trade fairs, marketing campaigns and distributors), we’re giving each brand the chance to sell directly to thousands of retailers around the world, and simplifying cross-border transactions while we’re at it.
Sourcing unique treasures from homeware and gifting, to fashion and food, we provide a platform for trade between wholesalers and retailers of all shapes and sizes. With simple tools, communication and the security of trading through a platform, there is no limit to your wholesale or retail ambitions.
Selling products is about more than turning over inventory. We make it easy to shop by the values that matter to you and customers, such as eco-friendly products, minority-owned businesses, locally manufactured & handmade items, and much more.
International wholesale and retail can be complex, especially for small businesses — but that shouldn’t limit your ambitions. Our growing family of retailers and wholesalers are based across the UK, Europe, US, Canada and beyond! We make trading internationally easy and stress-free with our international tools and resources.
Our co-founders Ashley and Fahad come from a finance background, but both have strong retail roots. Ashley’s grandmother was a small business owner selling antiques and collectibles in Northern California, and Fahad’s dad was a retailer selling convenience items from his office-shop in Pakistan. But it was only when they ran a store together in London’s Covent Garden that they realised how hard retailers really have it; how exclusive the financing options are, and how hard it is to buy the right stock, in the right amounts. So they set out to fix it, all of it — and today’s CREOATE was born: a wholesale marketplace for independents that’s really for independents, complete with interest-free finance options to help you find your feet.
CREOATE began life as a dedicated team of two, but has doubled many times over since. Now, we have a growing international team of CREOATErs based in 11 different countries. We were born and raised in local communities and watched friends and families grow their small businesses. Shop local is the norm for us and we’re on a mission to help small business communities to thrive.
I use CREOATE as a buyer and wholesaler and I think it is a great platform. It is easy to buy, flexible and as a seller is perfect as I only have to concentrate on uploading my products to the platform and fulfilling orders. Highly recommend it.
