FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can anyone participate on the Kickfurther platform?

Kickfurther is open to anyone in the United States over the age of 18. This is because users on Kickfurther have the opportunity to sell the inventory they buy to earn profit quicker. If the inventory doesn’t sell, users can take delivery of the inventory they purchased to do with as they choose. If you wanted to buy and sell inventory today, you could do so through AliExpress and Shopify. Kickfurther makes it easier by pairing users with businesses that already have successful products and have the need for more inventory.

Why did you start Kickfurther?

I used to run a merchandising business and my sales grew from $600k to over $1m within the first two years. With that growth came larger purchase orders and, when I went to market to find a financing solution, I found the rates to be exorbitantly high and coupled with extremely onerous terms. At the same time, the cash I had sitting in my bank account was earning 0.05% interest annually. It didn’t make sense that capital could both be very cheap and very expensive at the same time. Kickfurther was born from the realization that there had to be a more efficient solution.
