You may be wondering...

Is Cora free to use?

Yes, Cora is completely free for designers to use!

Does Cora work with both trade & retail vendors?

Yes, we do! We understand that most designers today don't source from just trade-only vendors, so we wanted to give you the most true-to-life experience possible. What this means is that you will be able to apply to trade programs, search our marketplace, and purchase from trade-only, trade-focused, and retail brands all at once on Cora.

What if I already have trade accounts with vendors who are on Cora?

No problem! You can indicate that you are already a client of the vendor, along with your current trade account arrangement. You can then continue to purchase at that same price point on Cora.

What if I work with a showroom or rep locally who represents brands on Cora?

We hope that all facets of the design industry will want to work with Cora, however, there is a possibility that some of your showrooms and/or sales reps are not participating on Cora quite yet. We encourage you to message your Cora vendors to encourage them to invite their showrooms and reps to join the platform.

I just started my own design business. Am I still eligible to apply to Cora?

Yes, absolutely! Cora encourages established designers as well as designers who are just getting started to apply to join our platform. We thoroughly vet every application, which includes verifying resale and/or EIN numbers as well verifying that the applicant is an actively working designer. If you do not have any completed projects yet, we are happy to consider in-progress projects.

Cora focuses on growing, scaling brands that have some of the most fresh, unique products in the industry.
