Benefits of selling on Miinto
Miinto is not an ordinary webshop but a fashion collective created by fashion lovers for all the consumers who demand a high level of service and personal online experience similar to the one found in traditional fashion boutiques.
Miinto does not believe in fashion by algorithm, standards and streamlining. Miinto is a community of real people connected over their love for fashion. Hundreds of shop owners, all passionate and proud about their store and product assortment, eager to add their personal touch to every order make the shopping experience truly social and personal.
The Miinto concept is based on the collaboration with shop owners and brands, offering the opportunity to go online and expand your markets while benefiting from Miinto’s digital marketing and technical expertise. The Miinto Group works with skilled in-house specialists in IT, digital marketing and customer experience to build an inspiring shopping experience for each and every one of its customers who benefit from a varied and extensive product selection conveniently gathered in a single place, while physical stores can reach new segments and thereby sell more of their inventory.
