War Paint


War Paint is a disruptive cosmetics make up brand for men. With a strong brand identity and great marketing from the team themselves they approached Activ8 for eCommerce accountancy services for help with VAT, international shipments and book-keeping services.

As a fast growth business they faced many of the challenges of optimising their processes as new sales channels and enquiries stretched the team. Offering them access to our fulfilment and online management team allowed them to add additional revenue streams and save time on the day to day processes.

With such a great brand it was very easy to help manage many of the processes and by providing our analytics platform the decision makers were able to have full transparency on revenue opportunities, marketing impact and cost savings across the business.

Key Moment: Stock arrived in our warehouse on Friday. The War Paint team got a new business call that evening and needed to be in Paris for three days. We took care of all their shipping.

“Activ8 have been instrumental in scaling our male cosmetic brand online. We initially approached them to store and fulfil our products but very quickly realised they offer so much more and they have become an extension of our team and an integral part of our business.  Activ8 take full control of our stock inventory, storage and fulfilling of orders, removing the stress and saving money in the process. They manage our book keeping and accounting ensuring we are set up for VAT and Tax correctly and provide regular reporting to inform important business decisions.  Now we are working with them to launch and grow our business globally with Amazon – their knowledge and expertise is unreal.

Through all of this Stuart, the owner, has been an absolute rock mentoring me through the challenges of growing a successful brand, cutting through the noise and providing clarity.

I would 100% recommend Activ8 and the team to anyone looking to scale business online!”
