Merchr (with founder Jay Huxtable)

Merchr is a new platform for bands to sell clothing and CDs, with the added benefit of only paying for what you sell rather than having to place a bulk order. With a monthly subscription package, there are no other initial outlay costs or a minimum order, simply send your design to Merchr and they will stock it, then you get a cut of money each time your product is sold. This episode features an interview with founder of the platform, Jay Huxtable.
