Staples announced last week the launch of its new online platform that will better connect suppliers and customers. Staples Exchange is an option that enables vendors to sell their products directly through the company's e-commerce channels, according to a company news release. Because Staples doesn't require its vendors to use a third party to sell on Staples.com, suppliers can upload products and sell directly to customers without extra cost. The option also allows sellers access to real-time alerts and self-service tools for inventory management.
