Save the Sale
Meet xCollective, the first in-store app designed for specialty retailers.
Designed for retailers, xCollective is a Save the Sale app designed to do just that. Download this app, and you can stop watching your customers leave your store and purchase online. The way it works is simple. Full inventory for the brands you carry is browsable on the xC app, giving you the ability to sell products not currently in stock. Funds for products shipped are deposited weekly into your account. xCollective orders ship within 2 business days, keeping your customers happy, and ready to come back to your store.
On an average day, roughly six out of ten customers will leave your store without making a purchase. Something needs to change. And that’s where we come in.
The odds are shifting in your favor

Great question. It absolutely does. Retailers who complete just a few transactions per day on the xC app can expect to raise their bottom line 10 – 15%. That’s a game changer. We come from a background in retail, so we know. Retailers receive payments from xCollective weekly, and keep their customers happy too. Select the brand. Find the product. Save the sale.
The xC app costs $99 per month (paid annually). All it takes to get started is an iPad, a fast web connection and a great attitude. Make no mistake, this is the future of retail. We created the xC app to give core retailers competitive muscle in a global marketplace.
Another good question. Items purchased in the retail store on the xC app ship directly from the brands to the customer. Brands have 48 hours (Monday thru Friday) to ship orders they receive. Most brands on xCollective are offering free shipping for orders over a certain dollar amount, and flat rate shipping for all other orders.
The front door, generally. (With any luck, during business hours). As a retailer, how many customers ask these two questions: “Do you have it?” “Can you get it?” Enter xCollective. Retailers can now say, “Yes”, regardless of the colors and sizes they have in stock. Brands can finally say, “Go to your local retailers. They have everything.”
Change is constant. What’s important is understanding the currents, remaining flexible and staying ahead of the obvious curve. But Exchange Collective is a powerful tool, undoubtedly. We don’t see local retailers competing with online superstores without the right tools. The xC app was developed to bring brands and retailers together in a brand new way.
