"When Yaytrade offered us a complete solution that gives us the possibility to host our yearly sample sales despite the ongoing pandemic- as well as selling our overstocks, it felt obvious to choose them as our new partner. We see Yaytrade as the new and modern alternative for selling samples and overstocks", says Anders Börve, CEO Selected Brands AB
"Selected Brands is one of the leading distributors of premium clothing and footwear. This deal is a result of an extensive discussion regarding our dropshipping solution - which we will now roll out as part of our international expansion. It is an honor to have Selected Brands as our first customer in this arrangement, demonstrating the strength of Yaytrade as a company and a brand. The partnership shows what problem Yaytrade solves with our marketplace and innovative solution where we approach a billion dollar market", says David Knape, CEO of Ytrade Group AB (publ).
