Interested in selling your brand's products in our shop? We're always looking for quality vendors with durable, enduring products from great brands around the world.

 

Not your average online retailer

WE BUILD LONG TERM PARTNERSHIPS 

Sure, we sell products to online consumers but that’s about all we have in common with other retailers. We prefer to consider ourselves partners, striving to build long-term mutually beneficial relationships.

 

HOW WE'RE DIFFERENT

 

ENFORCE MAP PRICING

Minimum Advertised Prices are essential to maintain a brand’s reputation. Without MAPs set or enforced, there’s an inevitable race to the bottom, which only stands to devalue the brand.

Not only do we respect existing MAPs, but we’re happy to help create & implement an effective program if needed.

STOP UNAUTHORIZED SELLER

Nearly every brand has dealt with unauthorized sellers listing products on online marketplaces. Unfortunately, they don’t always present the product in the agreed upon manner.

We can help to identify and stop these sellers using a variety of methods and alert the appropriate parties.

IMPROVE PRODUCT COPY

In order to maximize visibility and sales, product listings need to include the right keywords and convince shoppers to buy. We can help by identifying the optimum keywords and optimizing descriptions, keywords, titles, and more.

OPTIMIZE IMAGES

When shopping online, great – and plentiful – photos are an absolute necessity. If your products could use some new or additional photos, we’ll provide professional quality photos at no extra cost.

IDENTIFY THE BEST CHANNELS

Amazon is by far the biggest ecommerce channel in the US, but it’s not the only. We’ll work to identify the best channels for your brand, including listing on our own proprietary marketplace for select quality enduring products.

BULK PURCHASES

When we partner with brands, we nearly always purchase in bulk and utilize best-in-class fulfillment in order to maximize sales. We know the problems with dropship or just-in-time shipping from both sides.

NO UPFRONT FEES

We aren’t a marketing company and don’t charge management fees. We only get paid when we sell products at a profit.

SOLCIT & MONITOR CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Reviews are one of the strongest forms of social proof. We’ll actively solicit reviews from customers and monitor them to make sure they are fair and accurate. Our methods are 100% compliant with all marketplaces, including Amazon.

ADVERTISE LISTINGS

We’ll promote your products by advertising them on the appropriate channels. Though organic discovery is our primary method, paid advertising helps your products get discovered by more buyers.

 

a little about..

CAUGHTADRIFT

As owners of our own brands, and retailers of others, we’ve seen both the good and bad side of ecommerce. The opportunities are nearly endless, but so are the problems. We’ve certainly experienced our share: price erosion, crashed sites, unauthorized sellers, counterfeit products, account suspensions, etc. In the end, the result is lost sales and brand degradation.

We’ve always solved the problems, but it hasn’t always been easy. Over the years, we’ve developed methods to not only fight these problems, but to actually prevent them from ever happening.

In 2016, we launched CaughtAdrift to offer our knowledge and expertise to other brands because we were tired seeing the same problems again and again. When brands work with us, we go well beyond the role of a typical retailer and our methods work to insure long term success.

Apply to become our brand partner today and start soaring to new heights of ecommerce success.
