No more missed or forgotten wholesale invoices. Candid’s simple, secure payment system is always up to date and integrated directly into orders.
We designed our software from the ground up to take the guesswork and miscommunication out of running your wholesale business profitably. With Candid, you can:
No more missed or forgotten invoices. Candid’s simple, secure payment system is always up to date and integrated directly into orders, whether you’re using online methods like Candid Pay or offline methods like cash, check, or COD.
When an order is ready to be invoiced, you can choose whether to notify the buyer in Candid, via email, or both. Secure, shareable order links mean even non-Candid users can settle up quickly online.
Candid Pay (powered by Stripe) gives you the option of taking credit cards online for a low transaction fee and get paid out quickly and securely via direct deposit.
Yes! We’re happy to be your one and only wholesale channel, but we also don’t mind sharing. Wholesale is hard enough as is – we don’t want to add to that!
Unlimited orders at all plan levels.
You can add as many users as you need. The primary contact defaults to the person who signed up, which you are able to change at any time.
We do not charge order transaction fees. Instead, we offer monthly paid subscription plans that you can read more about here. If you choose to use Candid Pay, our optional order payment processor powered by Stripe, you will be charged a small, standard processing fee which you can read more about here.
We are similar to a wholesale marketplace in that we are a buying and selling platform, but we are different in that Candid is primarily a tool used to manage your wholesale activities all in one place.
Most marketplaces are good for discovery, but that’s about it, and they generally offer more benefits to the buyer. You also run the risk of competing with similar brands and having fewer repeat customers. Candid’s software, however, makes it easy to create and maintain relationships with your vendors – sellers get to know buyers, see order history and have direct communication. Candid will also never advertise competitors’ goods to your customers, which is the main feature of some marketplaces.
Yes! Candid supports tracking numbers from all platforms (and integrates directly with Shipstation) so your order and shipping info are synced and buyers can track their shipments.
When an invoice is marked paid, your accounts receivable contact(s) will get an email notification, and the invoice status will update from “Invoiced” or “Overdue” to “Paid” in Candid.
Candid Pay is the quickest and most direct way to get paid, but all payment methods are supported – at no extra cost. If you receive payment outside of Candid (check, phone, etc.), simply mark the invoice as paid (fully or partially) and the order will automatically update in app.
