from overstock to profit
stokkly is the brainchild of three e-commerce and online marketplace experts
who, together, cumulate more than 30 years of experience.
Over the years, they repeatedly met with brands and manufacturers looking
for solutions to better handle excess and distressed inventory.
Time and time again they were confronted with the same questions :
However simple and straightforward these questions may appear,
it turned out no simple and straightforward
answer or solution existed !
stokkly was designed to not only answer these questions,
but go beyond and provide a realistic and practical solution
to help brands and manufacturers manage
their clearance process
Our vision is that brands, manufacturers and their buying partners
can generate much more value from excess inventory
by working together in a more streamlined environment.
