How To Use Smarter Uniforms Marketplace

How it works

The Smarter Uniforms Marketplace is an extension of the bricks and mortar and online shop model that Smarter Uniforms has been operating for the past three years. With the enormous amount of donations we receive each term we thought it would be a good idea to also give parents and guardians the chance to sell peer-to-peer.

This marketplace is powered by Sharetribe and offers parents and guardians the chance to sell to one another directly and arrange their own form of payments and delivery all in one secure marketplace.

A marketplace means:

  • We can keep uniforms in circulation for longer
  • Costs are kept to a minimum
