(PRESS RELEASE) Digital marketplace Gembridge is launching a unique reseller program in colored gemstones and jewelry, giving its trade members full access to its catalogue, to sell Gembridge listings on their own online platforms.
Trade members who join the reseller program will be able to curate the Gembridge offering in line with their own market segments, and will benefit from the support network of Gembridge, including a global ambassador network of industry leaders in key markets, logistics and drop shipping, trusted payment process, and 72-hour return policy.
“Our catalogue features all major varieties of gem-quality colored gemstones that are in demand and good value,” said Jean Jureidini, the Gembridge commercial director.
“As a verified Gembridge Reseller, trade members get instant access to a global supply of gem-quality stones catalogued by experts, maintaining their own branding and customers, and backed by Gembridge’s support services and logistics.”
Resellers will be able to showcase listings, quality video and images on their own online platforms using a secure API (Application Programming Interface) that allows constant communication between applications.
The API is accessible for custom integrations on platforms like Shopify, Etsy, WooCommerce, Magento and many more.
Listings will be monitored and updated in real time, notifying resellers of any changes and sales that occur on Gembridge, and vice versa.
Nick Marrett, Gembridge CEO, said: “This program will mean better collaboration, more fluid integration between Gembridge and our members, greater scale, automation and standardization in our industry.”
Tony Brooke, Gembridge Chairman, said: “The reseller program has huge potential to boost turnover across the global industry. Long term, this means a more open, inclusive market, with more people seeing more stones, ultimately offering a wider variety of choice and quality for end consumers. This positions Gembridge as the world’s best single source of great value gem-quality colored gemstones.”
Gembridge offers digital marketplaces for both the colored gemstone trading community, and for consumers, known as Friends of Gembridge.
Today Gembridge welcomes members from 60 countries and is represented by 16 Ambassadors, with Hubs in Shanghai, New York, Los Angeles, Chattanooga, Minas Gerais, Bogota, London, Geneva, Munich, Nairobi, Beirut, Jaipur, Colombo, Bangkok, Singapore, and Sydney.
