“…Swapping merchandise with other authorized retailers of the same brands is a cost-effective solution for resolving excess inventory. A new startup, SwapRetail, works with brands and retailers to accommodate safe and anonymous transactions. Transaction terms make it more cost-effective for retailers to seek inventory from their brand partners first before going on to swap or purchase other SKUs anonymously from other authorized sellers.”
