About SwapRetail

SwapRetail is a B2B marketplace helping independent retailers and brands sell their unsold inventory. Our network has grown to 1,500+ retailers, 600+ brands with $6mm in listed inventory. We have developed an ecosystem that enables brands and retailers to resell their unsold inventory to buyers; independent retailers via our B2B marketplace, end-consumers via B2C partners and global off-price retailers via liquidation.

We believe that there is a rightful home for each piece of the $113B unsold inventory problem (in the US alone, annually) and we're building the bridge so that supply can meet demand - fast. Swap Retail changes the lives of independent retailers and brands because their success depends

on how quickly their inventory turns.
