As an online merchant, you understand the hassles of ecommerce can be costly and take up a lot of time: finding quality wholesalers, managing up-front expenses, forecasting production, handling fulfillment, providing customer service... and that’s only the start of the list. The logistics and financial responsibilities alone can quickly become overwhelming.

That is where GearLaunch comes in with our full service platform. Beyond enabling merchants to set up their own branded storefronts, GearLaunch removes the headaches with production, packaging, shipping, and customer operations by including everything with our platform.

Because there is no inventory, no up-front costs, and no risk, merchants who partner with GearLaunch have the time and resources to grow their brands and scale their businesses.

The power of big retail has never been so simple to access, thanks to GearLaunch.

  1. Set up your storefront (we will guide you through it).
  2. Upload your designs for products you want to sell.
  3. Name your price.
  4. Launch.
  5. Spread the word.

We have the tools and resources to make your ecommerce ideas a reality.


Get started in 3 easy steps:

  1. Fill out this simple contact form so we can provide you with a dedicated Account Manager (AM).

  2. Pick a domain for your store and register it with NameCheap, GoDaddy, or Cloudflare. If you’d prefer to use another registrar, simply let your AM know.

  3. Whenever you’re ready, your AM will help you set that domain up with GearLaunch. For this step, have your domain registrar, username, and password ready.


Your storefront is technically ready to go as is, but one of the key reasons GearLaunch is a favorite among sellers is we enable the customization of your storefronts. Let’s get started!

  1. Head over to the seller portal and log into your dashboard. 

  2. Click on “Settings” from the left Navigation menu. You’ll see several boxes to adjust different settings for your store. The two we’ll focus on to start are the “Logo” and “Favicon” boxes.

    For logos, displayed in the upper left corner or centered in your storefront, we recommend .png or .jpg file formats with a width of 400 - 850px and a height of 100 - 125px.

    For Favicons, displayed in the browser address bar, we recommend using .ico files that are 16x16px or 32x32px.


Even with GearLaunch streamlining the entire ecommerce chain for you, running your own business will require serious dedication. That is why many sellers choose to add team members to their storefronts for various tasks. And depending on their role, GearLaunch allows you to adjust permissions for each team member.

Admins have full access and can change role permissions for other team members.

Managers have partial access to all store tabs except Payouts or Store Settings.

Launchers have limited access to Campaigns and existing Promotions. Launchers cannot access the Dashboard, Payouts, or Store Settings tabs, and cannot create new Promotions. All campaign profits are hidden, even on individual campaign pages or launch pages.

Here is how to use these roles:

  1. From your Dashboard, click “Store Settings.”

  2. Locate the “Team” box in the right corner and click “Add team member.” Enter your team member’s email address, and choose the appropriate role from the drop down box.

  3. Click “Save” once you’re done. Repeat these steps for all the members on your team.
