SAN FRANCISCO, April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Modify has announced the launch of its online merchandise platform that facilitates the design, development, ecommerce and distribution of customized products for brands and personalities. By offering free design and access to a rapidly expanding catalog of products, Modify's innovative instant purchase model establishes untapped revenue streams and marketing opportunities for emerging organizations and influencers. Since the soft-launch, more than 1,000 partners from various verticals including YouTube influencers, nonprofit causes, eSports teams, professional athletes, artists, musicians and more have joined the Modify.com merchandise marketplace.
"Until now, creating custom merchandise has either taken too much time or too much money. Our focus is to alleviate all that pain – design, ecommerce, production, service – and let our partners focus on doing what they do best, building their brands and serving their causes," says Aaron Schwartz, CEO and founder of Modify.
With the rise of social media, many influencers have not yet been able to monetize their enormous following; Modify develops individualized marketplaces and offers products to their fans. Modify's turnkey solution includes designing and distributing a catalog of branded accessories and apparel without having to commit to bulk orders or large quantity shipments. From NBA player Willie Cauley-Stein, to the amazing illustrator Camilla d'Errico and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Modify is able to service anyone looking to excite and captivate their audience.
"There are millions of influencers, brands and causes that have fan bases who would love to show their passion," says Schwartz. "The Modify site is a destination for bringing brands and consumers together. We've developed an exciting branding and revenue opportunity for those looking to grow their business."
With the Modify.com platform, partners gain access to Modify's Creative Team. These designers will, at no charge, create custom merchandise designs for collaborators within 48 hours. All designs are available for sale on the Modify Marketplace, and partners can add a storefront and sell products right on their own websites, thanks to a simple line of code that Modify provides. Partners earn a revenue share of 20% of purchases, while nonprofits receive 30%.
Modify partners with brands to create custom designs and merchandise, manufactured at the company's headquarters in San Francisco and other locations around the U.S. They have collaborated with thousands of companies, charities, musicians, artists and athletes including Google, MLB, NBA, NHL, PlayStation, LiveNation, DeadMau5, Tetris, Wu Tang Clan, Foo Fighters, The Ally Coalition with Rachel Antonoff and Fun, Topps, and CaféPress to create custom licensed designs.
