Sendoso can only accept certain items at our warehouse. For more information, please see this article.

The warehouse tracks every item based on the image shared by the vendor and the SKU. If something looks wrong, they will reach out.

No. You can, however, order a sample item for yourself or send yourself one of the items created from Custom Brand Shop in your new inventory.
