FREQUENT QUESTIONS

WHAT IF WE DON'T LIKE A RETAIL STORE?

We do of course want you to make your account manager aware of any concerns or breaches so they can be rectified. We are able to restrict a retailer from selling your brand if necessary.

CAN WE CHANGE ACCOUNT MANAGER?

We have several account managers on our team. Please contact us directly so we can partner you with some one better suited to your brand and people.

WHEN WILL I GET MY MONEY?

Business thrives on transparency, confidence and trust. Shipping advice will not be issued to designers until our system confirms receipt of the retailer's payment. This transfer should be done within 24 hours of the sale or as soon as the funds clear. We aim to make automatic daily transfers of wholesale and OS shipping payments to designers.

ARE THERE MINIMUM INVENTORY REQUIREMENTS?

Yes. Designers are required to have a minimum wholesale stock value of $ 5,000 for us to shoot it.

Fashion Turbine is not suitable for one off or very short run manufacturers but talk to us. We may be able to get you on a cargo flight.

CAN DESIGNERS SELL ON THEIR OWN STORE?

Yes. Designers can also be retailers using Fashion Turbine. They will also be able to sell other brands on their website if they so choose.

WHAT INFORMATION APPEARS ON THE SHIPPING DOCUMENTS?

The Fashion Turbine generates shipping labels and manifest that include the retailer's store logo and contact details. The consumer will not be aware that the item comes directly from the designer's inventory.

HOW ARE RETURNS HANDLED?

Returns are processed through the retail site in accordance with your returns policy. Where a product is faulty it will be returned to the manufacturer and a replacement sent to the consumer.

WHAT ABOUT BOUTIQUES WE ALREADY SUPPLY?

Bricks and mortar retail continues to be a viable part of many brand strategies. They can continue to purchase or take stock on consignment as well as sell through Fashion Turbine using drop shipping. Using Fashion Turbine makes everyone's job easier and provides all parties with quality creative collateral. See our additional services regarding provision of Fashion Turbine creative content to other independent boutiques.
