POP-Market is part of Global Apparel Network, (GAN), a New York based global company that has been changing the way brands, retailers, and designers communicate visual information for over a decade. GAN's patented solutions, including Visuality™ and POP-Market™, cover the entire fashion lifecycle from design, sales, buying and visual merchandising.
GAN launched POP-Market with a mission to make wholesale easier, by combining its powerful sales platform with the most seamless and rewarding buying experience available. With the only patented technology in the industry, the leading iPad app and the largest buyer network, POP-Market is the complete wholesale solution brands and retailers trust most.
"The first player in the field was arguably POP-Market's parent company Global Apparel Network, which created a tool called Visuality more than a decade ago. It was designed to help brands, retailers and designers communicate visual information: everything from product design to visual merchandising and wholesale. Visuality's vendor customers have been using it as a tool for buyers to share new products and collections (and to place orders) for years. What POP-Market did when it launched last year was to unite the existing network of buyers -- thousands of them -- into a marketplace where brands and buyers can discover each other."
