What is a sneaker subscription business?

A sneaker subscription business is a service in which customers pay a recurring fee to receive access to sneakers instead of the customer purchasing the sneakers for themselves. In a subscription model, the customer may return the sneakers to the seller at the end of the contract period.

How to start a sneaker subscription business?

There are several steps you need to take to start a sneaker subscription business — as with starting any kind of business. Some of the key steps include:

  • Determine your target market and decide what type of sneakers you want to offer.
  • Next, you have to look for suppliers who can provide you with the sneakers you want to offer.
  • Develop a marketing and sales strategy. Ask yourself, how you are going to acquire new customers and retain them as subscribers over time.
  • Create a website to showcase your sneakers and allow customers to purchase subscriptions. In a competitive market, user experience is everything. The whole customer experience, from buying online to receiving and returning sneakers, needs to be super easy for the consumer.
  • Get a payment processor that supports recurring payments. Rentle has this built-in.

Effective strategies for customer acquisition include, for example, social media, paid advertising, and influencer partnerships.
