In March, we announced plans to expand Faire across Europe. After successful launches in the United Kingdom as well as France and Germany, we’re thrilled to share that we’ve now launched in 15 European countries total.
We’re excited to offer Faire brands the opportunity to connect with thousands more independent retailers across Europe. Based on our current order volume in Europe, we expect to process $50 million on behalf of brands and retailers within a year. Faire’s expansion into European markets will empower brands to share their products and grow their businesses globally.
This expansion comes ahead of our next Faire Market, our first global trade show event, happening at the end of July. For the first time, this year’s Faire Summer Market will enable our brands and retailers in the United States, Canada, and Europe to seamlessly conduct business across borders. The event will provide a meaningful opportunity for brands to grow globally, while allowing retailers to source unique goods from around the world, strengthening their competitive edge within their local communities.
Sell to retailers in these countries
In 2017, we launched Faire in the United States with a mission to help independent entrepreneurs chase their dreams. Then, we kicked off international expansion in 2019 by opening the Faire marketplace to Canadian retailers. Now, we’re proud to offer Faire in the United Kingdom, Western and Central Europe, and the Nordics.
We’ve seen that our growing retailer community is taking advantage of a seamless cross-border buying experience—so far, 70% of our European sales are transatlantic. We’re excited to see how brands and retailers will continue to build relationships across North America and Europe as our global community grows. Brands can now sell to retailers to the following European countries:
- United Kingdom
If you’re not ready to sell in Europe at this time, you can simply opt out.
