ONLINE MARKETPLACE SERVICES

Manufacturers are faced with increasing challenges in online marketplaces including disruptive third-party sellers, fluid price points, illegitimate sourcing, and counterfeit goods.

Online marketplaces are rapidly expanding. With more than five million third-party sellers on Amazon and 25 million more on eBay and Walmart, it can be extremely difficult for brands to stay on top of their online presence. Price instability, product inconsistency, unauthorized foreign goods, expired and stolen items and counterfeits are rampant, and they all harm consumer trust, brand consistency, and a brand’s bottom line. By providing in-depth data, collected using its proprietary system, and working tirelessly to fix those problems,
Potoo enables brands to take back control.
Recently the recipients of a state of Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development business development grant for expansion, Potoo expects to double its size for the fourth year running. Their open-concept office space for the growing 70+ member team includes standing desks for each employee, massage chairs, ping pong tables, a shuffleboard game, a gym, standing treadmills, a blender bike, and unlimited snacks.
