What kind of products are you looking for?
We're seeking sustainable products from artists, artisans, antiques collectors, and small manufacturers in the United States who are looking for an easy, low-cost way to sell their products online.
The types of products that we are seeking:
Household goods made from natural materials
Clothing made from natural fabrics
Sporting goods and games made from natural materials
Energy and fuel saving devices
Anything recycled/ upcycled/ refurbished
What is a sustainable product?
The material a product is made from is often key to it's sustainability, but it's not the only factor. The purpose of the item is also important, as the goal of Pensive Lookout is to provide items that are either necessary or effectively enrich the lives of its owners without causing unnecessary waste. Other factors include the supply chain and the packaging.
What is drop-shipping?
When a customer buys a product on the retail store, we'll check if it's a drop-ship item. If it is, we'll send you a wholesale order with instructions to ship the item directly to the customer. This setup takes the burden of customer service off of your business, allowing you to simply list and ship!
What about wholesale lots?
If you prefer lump-sum payments, you can offer us deals on cases of your product. This allows us to buy your product in bulk and handle storage and shipping for you. Offering a deal that reflects this level of effort will incentivise us to make purchases.
What about my taxes?
We'll file a form 1099 and provide you with a copy when required by law.
How can I get my own website?
Early adopters like you are eligible for a custom-made Wix website which will display your products and prices. Full details are available inside the Supplier Portal.
Alright, how do I apply?
