The No Middleman Project exists because we want to eliminate the unnecessary middleman, not add another one. That’s why we don’t sell products on our site, and we don’t take any commission or cut of product sales.
Instead, we focus on serving as an information source for consumers: we find the best direct to consumer play & toys and connect you directly with the brand(s). Then we get out of the way!
Our mission and business model are the opposite of today’s dominant online and offline retailers, and the dominant search engines and ad networks who are now positioned as powerful middlemen, taking a cut from product sales (directly or indirectly).
NoMiddleman’s entire purpose is to connect you with the best play & toys and not impact the cost of the transaction in any significant way. We want to help brands keep their costs low, so they can continue to pass value through to you, in the form of lower prices or higher quality!
