It’s a special place where you can inspire each other, broaden your customer base, and grow together as a community.

WHY JOIN THE ACCESSORY CIRCLE?

We are professional and we take pride in making sure your brand image is as good as our platform, we have engaged a large number of designers and businesses since 2014 through exhibitions, fashion shows, press events, online and offline pop-up shops of our sister brands. We are now extending this network to include accessories and can not only introduce your brand to a global community of customers but also offer the service it deserves to grow and thrive. Our site is an advanced Shopify store, which means our customers will have the best shopping experience, and you don’t have to pay the monthly Shopify fees (up to $79 a month), because it is included in your membership fees!


If you are not completely satisfied with your experience on The Accessory Circle, you can request for a refund for the monthly fee within 14 days (joining fee non-refundable). Sales commission is 10-25% depending on the plan you choose, and we pay out within a month!


We understand how difficult it is to get your work seen. It is hard to find a good stockist and never easy to maintain, update, and drive traffic to your own website without losing precious time which could be spent designing or sourcing new innovative products.


The Accessory Circle is not just another e-commerce site. Here, you can choose the right membership plan that suits your business needs, and of course we are here with all the support you need to get the recognition your brand deserves.
You can own a store on TAC, and benefit from the many additional features we have included to ensure your products are discovered, and all customers have a wonderful shopping experience. Our Circle is designed to enable you to build a sustainable business for a small token in monthly subscription fees (this is easily covered by selling just one or two products!). By selling with us you can worry less about marketing and solely focus on doing what you love; creating beautiful products. Traditional stockists have high initial costs, tons of unsold inventory returned to you every season, commonly cost you 50+% commissions, and very slow pay-outs.

MASTER CIRCLE

As the name implies, this plan is specially designed for experienced designers and retailers who are pressed for time and lack the tools to target the right kind of customer, drive website traffic, or conduct the right kind of marketing to facilitate business growth. The ‘Master Circle’ is exactly where you belong if you are looking for a new stockist who can help you to engage customers, sell, and grow internationally. You get to list up to 90 different accessories, have direct communication with your customers, and sell your products on a platform that will do all the promotional work for your brand!

With listings that don’t expire, you are guaranteed that customers will always be able to shop your bestsellers and more when you sell with us. You get to create a custom designer profile where you can tell shoppers about yourself, your brand, and provide direct links to your brand and social media handles. Our special direct messaging feature also allows you to discuss with customers in real time and answer whatever questions they may have, and to ensure the conversion is made. In addition to our website, your products will also be listed on our Instagram and Facebook shops, and Google Shopping channels to maximize sales, while benefiting from our rigorous marketing services which include designer interviews, priority bookings, features on our inspiration page, customer newsletter, style edit, social media, and more. You are also guaranteed special discounts on events, subscription fees*, and 1-3* free shop spaces at our yearly London accessory exhibitions and pop-up shops among other things.

This is the perfect plan for you if you simply want to sit back and focus on creating while your beautiful products ‘sell themselves’.
