Vantage Apparel (PPAI 113234, S10), based in Avenel, New Jersey, has integrated with OrderMyGear (PPAI 704581), an industry provider of ecommerce stores for selling branded and personalized apparel.

Through this integration, distributors will have access to the supplier’s merchandise as well as its live inventory feeds, and they can choose from hundreds of Vantage styles from brands like Vansport, Gildan® and Greg Norman Collection™ to build a retail-looking site in less than 15 minutes.

Over the past year, Vantage has formalized partnerships with many ecommerce providers, citing evidence of a growing demand for online, easy-to-order programs with single-piece decoration capabilities. In June 2019, Vantage was the first supplier to fully integrate orders with BrightStores, offering a zero-touch experience for store owners and reducing production time to as little as a 24-hour turnaround on decorated apparel orders. Additionally, Vantage created a seamless integration with Shopify, automating the order process and allowing distributors to focus more on growing sales and less on costly day-to-day operations of owning and managing and online store. Vantage provides a webstore solution to its customers as well.

“Vantage has seen year-over-year growth in webstore sales with the recent pandemic creating an even greater demand for e-commerce solutions,” says Rob Watson, Vantage’s chief experience officer. “Webstores not only allow you to easily change apparel offerings seasonally, but they also provide the buyer with a customized shopping experience; selecting the size and color they want at checkout.”
