With lockdowns shutting down showrooms and tradeshows, two of the primary mechanisms for B2B wholesale commerce to do business, digital platforms that replicated the in-person experience thrived. JOOR is a wholesale management platform and marketplace that connects retailers, vendors, and brands for fashion, luxury, and home goods. The all-in-one platform provides a seamless virtual showroom experience and handles discovery, transactions, and payments. There are over 12,500 brands and 325,000 retailers transacting on the marketplace currently with no signs of slowing down.
