Storefronts can expand their inventory by partnering with Suppliers through (1) new Supplier partnerships or (2) increasing product selection from existing Supplier partners.

  1. Invite a Supplier by inputting their email address in the text box on the “Invite a Brand” page. After the Storefront's Supplier accepts their invitation and installs Canal, the Storefront will be able to create a partnership proposal. A proposal includes key details about the partnership.

  2. When you have already partnered with a Supplier, visit "My Suppliers" in the Canal app. View "Available" products, select the ones you want to sell, and send a new proposal for these additional products.

What is in a proposal to a Supplier to get approved to sell products:

  • Which products the Storefront wishes to sell

  • The Storefront's proposed commission

  • How much customers will be charged for shipping

Once submitted, partnered Suppliers will be able to approve Storefront proposals. After a proposal is approved, Storefronts can find their new products in the “Inventory” page of the Canal for Storefronts app.
