Wayfair at a glance

Wayfair is the right place to sell and buy everything from sofas and showerheads to fireplaces and personal saunas. It (formerly known as CSN Stores until 2012) is one of the biggest and most affordable home goods online stores. The company was founded in 2002, just during the dot-com bust, when online shopping gain momentum and the supply chain started to spread globally. Soon it became a pioneer in its domain, growing with exponential speed.

Wayfair’s prices are dynamic, with daily adjustments based on an automated algorithm. Among the factors determining the price range are seasonal effects, competition, availability, and shipping times.

What’s on the list?

Today, its item count exceeds the 14 million point, expending the inventory across all possible furniture and home-goods products. They come from about 11 000 global suppliers in addition to 80 “house brands,” which are used to organize products into particular decorating aesthetics.

Wayfair does not produce any goods and uses a drop-ship model instead: it sells a product from one of its suppliers and ships it to the customer, using different approaches to deliver the item. Learn more about what you can sell on Wayfair on its YouTube Channel.
