Read on to learn more about why designers are so excited! 

How the Integration Works

The DesignFiles + SideDoor combination offers benefits and conveniences you can’t live without, including:  

  • Access to SideDoor’s 200K top trade product library directly in DesignFiles 
  • Stunning design creation using DesignFiles’ top-rated mood board software Example of brand list
  • Instant generation of shoppable collections for every board you create 
  • Earning an average of 30% commission on all purchases

You get all this and more without ever managing product orders again. 
Essentially, this platform does it all so you can scale back or even eliminate product order managementAs a result, your creativity shines with stunning mood boards while your automated collection generation leverages trade discounts and mark-ups using one comprehensive platform. 

Improved Customer Experience

If you ever allow clients to purchase directly with links to vendors or stores and tend to source products from a diverse collection of vendors, your clients are stuck going to each checkout to complete their purchases. Easy for you, but not so easy for them.
