HOW TO GET STARTED
We are an open marketplace for trusted suppliers and qualified buyers to communicate directly with each other. Our mission is to increase trust between buyers and sellers through transparency, and lower the cost of PPE.
Please sign up as either a buyer or supplier. Please fill out all the information so that we can verify that you are a qualified buyer or seller. This process can take several days as we will check your references as a buyer or seller.
If you are a seller and you make a new listing, then it will NOT go live until our staff has properly vetted your products. This process can take several days to complete.
Both suppliers and buyers undergo a background check including sales/purchase history during our on-boarding process. The products sold are verified by the FDA and CDC website when applicable. All testing and certificates must be reported. For a full listing of our process, please click on this blog:
PPEConnector is available to large hospitals, small hospitals, mid-size enterprises and nonprofits. Many of the minimum order quantity on our marketplace exceeds 10,000 units.
We have a direct to consumer site for smaller enterprises where you can purchase smaller quantity and still get the larger GROUP BUY discount on PPE.
Our marketplace will set a maximum price on specific items. Anyone who violates this will be removed from the platform.

Although a list of bad suppliers and fake PPE would a great resource, we do not have this at the moment.
We will try our best to help you. Please email us at email@example.com
We are a non-profit venture. We have a staff of customer service representatives that help facilitate transactions, and researchers that continue to vet PPE and suppliers. We are asking all suppliers to pay a 2.5 % transaction fee of the final sale to qualified buyers to support this marketplace. We are fiscally sponsored by Innovative Charity, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization that has exclusive legal control over the contributed funds or assets.
