WHAT WE KNOW

THEY OFTEN THINK THAT

Afbeelding9.png
Sustainable brands aren’t fashionable.
Afbeelding9.png
Sustainable brands are too expensive.
Afbeelding9.png
Sustainable brands are too hard to find.

A single purchase doesn’t seem to make much of a difference.
Over ⅔ are interested in shopping clothing directly via social media.

They refer to influencers (friends, social media, celebrities) for inspiration on what to buy.
They buy from a higher variety of brands than other generations.

Conclo is on a mission to make sustainable clothing a viable option to fast fashion for Gen Z and young millennials. By leveraging how they shop and by challenging their misconceptions about sustainable fashion, we are changing what they buy (all sustainable of course). 
 

THE APP 

THE SOCIAL MARKETPLACE FOR SUSTAINABLE FASHION

MARKETPLACE
HOME FEED
We find the most stylish sustainable brands around the world and invite them to sell their pieces in a single sleak app. Sustainable style is only a tap away. 
As a user, you save your favorite pieces and share them with others in the form of curated wardrobes. By following your friends and fashion icons, you get fashion inspiration straight in your feed. 

Conclo handles the points system. This means that dressing sustainably becomes more affordable for users, but brands, like yours, never have to compromise on their prices. 

NOTE !

PROFILE

Sharing your sustainable style pays off. When a piece is sold through one of your wardrobes, you collect a percentage of the sale price in points. The points can then be used towards purchasing any piece on the platform. 

FAVOURITES
 

OUR BRANDS

It is important to us that the brands that are on Conclo are genuinely sustainable and ethical. So we are very picky with who we invite onto the platform. 

    

We choose our brands based on how well they fulfill the six Conclo criteria. The criteria were created based on the biggest problems that the fashion industry faces. Obviously, sustainability and ethics are very difficult to judge, but we do our best, using all reliable information that is available to us. Most importantly, we are constantly learning and updating our criteria as we expand our understanding. We require that a brand fulfills at least two of our criteria to be invited onto the platform.

JOINING CONCLO AS A BRAND

YOUR ACCOUNT

When you sign up to Conclo you will be provided with a brand profile on the app as well as a brand portal account where you can handle all orders, edit your company details and track your progress.

API INTEGRATION

You can also integrate with Conclo via API. This way all your products, orders and inventory will be synced automatically between your online store and your Conclo store, and can therefore be handled via your online store, the way you are used to.

HOW IT WORKS

Conclo is first and foremost a dropshipping marketplace. We market products on the Conclo platform and collect orders and payments which are then sent to the brands. At the moment, Conclo does not store or ship products. So once a purchase has been made it is up to the brand to produce and ship the order to the customer. Below you can find a breakdown of our pricing.

8% commission

It is completely FREE to sign up to Conclo. We only take a commission when you sell a product. We keep 8% of the total price of the product, incl. VAT but excl. shipping costs.

FAQs

 

INTEGRATIONS

Is there a fee for connecting to Conclo via API?

We do not charge any extra fee for integrations. However, note that some service providers may ask for a fee (such as Shopify) when you integrate your store API with other marketplaces. Different providers have different integration policies and requirements and we do our very best to inform you of any potential fees or restrictions before you integrate with us. If an additional fee is something you are concerned about, please feel free to get in touch. 

Can you edit information on my online store if I give you access to the API?

What we can access and edit will depend on what type of access key to your API you provide us with. You can, for example, give us a read-only access key or restrict us from accessing certain information. 

LAUNCH PLANS

Will you include all of our products on Conclo or do you make a selection?

We will include all your products on Conclo unless you ask us to not include certain products. The exception to this is if you sell products that are not considered to be clothing, shoes, bags, or accessories (such as gift cards or home decor) in which case we will not include these products. 

When are you releasing the app?

We are still finalising our software to make sure it is  in great shape for launch. To make sure we do not release anything that is incomplete, we have not set a launch date yet. However, we expect to launch in early summer.

Will you launch worldwide?

We will initially launch in Europe, with a focus on growing the platform in Scandinavia in the first months. But we are planning on eventually making Conclo available worldwide. This does, however, not mean that we require our brands to ship worldwide or even to most countries in Europe.

LEGAL

How are you dealing with the post-Brexit EU/UK import and export requirements?

We are continously looking into the specifics of UK imports and exports so that we can make everything as clear as possible for both our customers and our brands. As a marketplace we have to collect VAT on certain purchases on behalf of our brands, so we are setting up a system to handle VAT and will inform all Conclo customers, to the extent possible, about what they should expect when placing orders across the border. We have also put together an EU/UK import and export guide for all brands on Conclo so that they are kept informed about all the new legislation and how Conclo will be handling orders and purchases across the border. 

Do I commit to selling on Conclo long-term if I sign up?

No. We’d obviously hate to see you go but you can suspend your account and store on Conclo at any point, no strings attached. We want you to stay on Conclo because you want to, not because bureaucracy forces you to.

ABOUT CONCLO

 

Why is your commission so much lower than that of other marketplaces?

We know that sustainable brands often have lower profit margins than non-sustainable brands. The brands that we reach out to are also often small. We want to help sustainable brands, not ruin them, so we only collect the commission that we need to run Conclo. Because we develop all our software in-house and automate our processes where we can, we are able to keep our costs pretty low.

Where are you based?

Conclo is based in Stockholm, Sweden, but we have an international team spread across the world.
