The guidance you need to get your products into retail

To get on shelves, you need a rep. But the journey to finding one can feel like a maze — full of twists, turns, and a lot of dead ends. With Abound, there's a clear path forward.

FAQs

We're here to answer your questions

What's included with the Free plan?

addmaximize

With the Free plan you can post 1 product, schedule a QuickInsights Consulting call with a top rep and see how many reps on the platform might be a good match for you. Additionally, reps on the platform can see your product and may message you.

What's included with the Pro plan?

addmaximize

With the Pro plan, you get everything in the Free plan, plus the ability to view a rep's full profile and pitch your product to reps using RepMail credits. In other words, when you post your product and see a list of reps who might be a good match, you can see their names and send them a message to see if they’re interested in discussing your product. Additionally, you can post up to unlimited products. Your product and user profiles will have a Pro Brand badge, giving your brand more exposure on Abound.

How can I cancel my plan?

addmaximize

You can downgrade your plan to the Free plan from your account settings page. Once you downgrade your plan, it will be active for the remainder of your current subscription period. For example, if you signed up for a monthly plan on August 1 and you canceled on August 15, your subscription would still be active until September 1.

What are RepMail credits?

addmaximize

RepMail credits enable you to send outreach messages to reps, so you can see if they're interested in your product. You receive a specific number of RepMail credits per month based on your subscription plan. RepMail credits are only used for sending outreach messages to reps who have not previously messaged you.

Do reps pay Abound to be listed on the platform?

addmaximize

No. We don’t charge reps to access the platform. Reps have to be invited to join the platform (or they can submit an application), and we are extremely selective. Once they join, however, they can enjoy Abound for free. We believe we can truly help the world’s fastest-growing brands by attracting the world’s top reps in every industry category, so our primary goal is to make it easy for the best reps to join. Reps have the industry access, business insights, and sales experience that can transform an obscure brand into a household name, and we won’t charge them for providing our users with that value.

How do you make sure only high-quality reps are listed on Abound?

addmaximize

There are two key elements that maintain the quality of our rep user base. First, before we invite or accept any rep user on the platform, we review their resume (or LinkedIn profile), website and any publicly available information about their job history and expertise on the web; we also speak with the vast majority of reps before they are accepted. Second, and most important, we rely on our users’ feedback after rep engagements to make sure our reps are providing quality insights and sales support for Abound users. The information from both of these elements fuels our matching algorithms which get more powerful every day.

How often am I billed?

addmaximize

We bill monthly subscriptions every 30 days. So, if you signed up on August 1, you would be billed on August 1, September 1, October 1, and so forth until you downgrade or change your plan. If you choose to pay annually, we bill every 365 days. So, if you signed up on August 1, you would be billed on August 1 and again on August 1 the following year.

What if I use a RepMail credit and the rep doesn’t reply to me?

addmaximize

We know it can be discouraging to not hear back from a rep, but often this is simply because the rep has limited capacity (even if your product is fantastic). If you don’t receive a response within 14 days of sending an outreach message, the RepMail credit will be returned to your account and be valid for an additional 30 days.
