Understand how reselling works
What is reselling?

What sounds like a complex term is actually quite simple. A reseller is someone who purchases products from a wholesaler or a manufacturer and sells them directly to his/her customers after adding a margin to the price. Unlike a Meesho supplier, resellers need not own a shop or inventory.

How do resellers help suppliers in getting more orders?

Most of our resellers are housewives and students, who generally have a strong social network in their community. Resellers reach out to customers via social media such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, and other platforms. Reselling as a concept had existed in India for a while. However, the last few years have seen immense growth in social commerce platforms like Meesho.

Adding your Product

After completing your registration, you will be able to upload your product listing by logging on to the Meesho supplier panel.

What is a catalog

A catalog is a combination of more than 1 design of a product. For example, If you have sarees with different colors or designs, you can create a catalog using at least 2 different colors or designs.

It is recommended that you create a catalog with 3-4 products to increase the chances of getting an order. We also recommend uploading at least 5-7 catalogs in the first few days as a Meesho supplier.

How to upload?

Uploading catalogs on Meesho is very easy. You can upload a single catalog or multiple catalogs together on the Meesho supplier Panel.

Getting Orders

When your catalogs become live on Meesho, Meesho resellers will start sharing your products with their customers through WhatsApp, Facebook, and other social media platforms.

There are a number of things you can do to attract resellers and generate momentum for your business.

  • List more Catalogs
  • Usually it take 5-7 catalogs to get initial orders on the platform. The more catalogs you upload, the better your chances will be of getting initial orders.

  • Set a Right Price
  • Pricing should be very affordable so that Reseller is able to add their margin. More the room for margin for reseller, more shares your catalogs will get. We are also building a Price recommendation feature that will suggest the price at which you should list your catalogs to maximise your chances of getting orders.

  • Right Trend
  • Resellers always prefer fresh and unique trends. So, try to list trending products to get successful.

  • Opt for Next Day Dispatch
  • Next-Day Dispatch (NDD) program requires suppliers to dispatch orders on the next day of receiving orders. Faster dispatch helps you increase your order volume. NDD will help you cater more orders from the resellers since we run a separate banner for next day dispatch (NDD) products on our app and it attracts our resellers.
