Learn how Harrods sells Burberry, Zegna, and Gucci with no inventory costs

For most luxury brands and retailers, relying on legacy retail models like wholesale and direct-to-consumer (DTC) is no longer enough to keep pace with changing consumer demand.

At FARFETCH Platform Solutions, we designed our E-Concessions model to help the luxury industry thrive in this new era of retail. Through a single integration, our innovative commerce model unlocks access to luxury inventory by streamlining operations, reducing risk, and elevating experiences for brands and retailers alike.

So, what is E-Concessions exactly? Let's look at how it works and why it's defining luxury commerce.

What is E-Concessions?

Unlike traditional wholesale, E-Concession connects multi-brand retailers with products without inventory and warehousing risk, and grants brands full control of their customer journeys, products, and pricing.
