Coop

Co-ops

If you run a co-op, we may be able to help!  Wazoodle provides fabrics and a menu of fulfillment services to co-op owners. Using us to support your co-ops results in lower prices and more free time for the co-op owner.  We know collecting, cutting and shipping are the least fun part of cooping -- we're setup to efficiently handle all of hard stuff so you can spend more time on the fun part of co-oping!  All you pay for is the fabric and actual to-the-customer shipping charges.

Here's what we provide:

  • Discounts on fabrics
  • High resolution product scans, product descriptions complete with fiber content and weights
  • Fulfillment - cutting, packaging and direct to customer shipping (free, except for the actual shipping charges).

Some notes and rules on how coops work:

Coops can reduce the overall cost of purchasing. The do this by consolidating orders, collections, and communications through the coop operator.  The load is reduced for suppliers so there is an opportunity to have cost savings passed along to you and your members.  Some important things to remember:

1) Your clients communicate with you, the coop owner,  not with the fabric supplier.

2) Coops require patience:  While we do our best to expedite shipments when your coop closes, coop orders are  processed in a lower priority order than those coming in through our regular web store. Also, supply interruptions and stock shortages cannot always be foreseen in the textile business, so some items may delay the overall shipment dates.  Again, this is a cost saving measure that is passed along to you in the price.

3) The coop belongs to you, you may not advertise or disclose Wazoodle as your coop partner. Doing so creates a difficult situation for us as many of your your coop members will overwhelm our customer help desk (which is already a busy place).
