Why you should join Sharesson?
Partnering with Sharesson is a fantastic business opportunity. Here are the benefits and what it could mean for your business:
Increased product and brand value
Sharesson is not a competitor to brands, retailers, etc. The opposite! Sharesson is an extension and a phenomenal business growth possibility. Quality products that are being resold, keep their value because of the resale market. People take better care of their products because they know they can get a lot of money back when reselling it.
Customer introductions to your business
Customers can now afford and access quality goods at more affordable prices, introducing them to amazing brands, that they would have normally never purchased goods from because of the regular prices.
Gives you exposure to new markets and the potential to attract new customers. Many other marketplaces are local or focused on one country only. Sharesson is a global platform. Sharesson offers a global community of environmentally conscious outdoor lovers - giving businesses access to a niche customer.
Do something for the greater good - circular outdoor industry
By being part of Sharesson, you are publicly stating that the environment is a business priority. You are taking a stand and you are doing good in joining the circular efforts together with Sharesson, giving your brand a stronger position in the conscious customers mind. You help minimize the waste and lower your brand's carbon footprint - keeping great outdoor gear in use.
Rent out and/or Sell
You can both rent out and sell products, you choose. By also renting out gear, you give the customer a way to try it before they buy it. You might want to test out the rental opportunity business model without investing in the tech for your company. As a seller, you chose if you want to sell your gear, rent out your gear or do both.
One global platform - no tech needed
We take care of all the tech and the platform. You don’t have to invest in anything, just take the time to upload the product info and ship your products when the orders arrive.
Safe and secure payments
We keep seeing the same comments on multiple other marketplaces – “it’s not safe” and “there’s fraud going on”. This was, from the start, extremely important for us. We want you to feel safe and secure when using the Sharesson platform. We want our community of outdoor enthusiasts to trust us and you. Your safety is our nr one priority!
As a business, you have extremely important outdoor expertise inside your company. Why not offer that too. People need to be educated on how to operate in the outdoors safely to best enjoy it. If you have expertise in the outdoor area that you think someone could benefit from, you can offer your services and someone can book it.
Minimize "lost cost” of returns, repairs, samples, and overstock
A product business has a lot of investment in its product development. But not all products/samples reach the market or “make the cut”. Sharesson gives your business a way of selling these goods to your target customers - minimizing your product costs, bringing those costs back into your business.
Use our apps – iOS and Android
Download the app and easily register, upload and list your products. Follow fellow Sharessons, get notified when new products are listed, and feel part of our tribe. The apps are created to make your experience here at Sharesson as easy, smooth, and pleasant as possible.
Map search for extra visibility
The map search feature is fantastic and extra important for the rental and service options. The map function is there to help people find what they are looking for, in the area of their choice.
Strong Rate & Review system
This helps you be a better, more credible seller. The rate & review system helps you gain more trust as a seller.
Connecting platform of outdoor community, organizations and products
We are in conversation with several outdoor organizations. We want Sharesson to be the connecting point for a more enjoyable, safe outdoor experience. Organizations can introduce people to the outdoors that have not previously spent much time in the outdoors.
Keep outdoor products in the outdoors
Sharesson helps save tons of fantastic, perfectly fine outdoor products from the entire outdoor industry. Retailers, brands, agents, distributors, sales reps, and services all have returns, repairs, samples, stock, or clearance products that they can’t sell on the traditional sites. These perfectly fine outdoor products are added to the site to keep them in use, instead of ending up in landfills or being incinerated.
You can follow and communicate with other Sharessons on the online platform and apps. Join the outdoor community to find friends all over the world.
Niche site and community
Sharesson is an outdoor community – that’s it! Our global community has one thing in common – the outdoors. No matter their background, gender, age, size, beliefs, etc. We’re enjoying the outdoors and sharing outdoor experiences together!

Our mission is to keep great gear from landfills, simple as that!
