Want to grow your online sales while working with a marketplace that puts you first? No, it’s not too good to be true – it’s guaranteed with OnBuy!
One of the fastest-growing marketplaces in the world, OnBuy have a lot to offer sellers and big plans for 2020 that you don’t want to miss out on. Read on to find out why you should join the highest ranked UK-founded marketplace now for a fantastic 2020!
A better selling experience
From the beginning, OnBuy set out to provide buyers and sellers with a better marketplace experience. OnBuy deliberately took a different approach to existing marketplaces: our ethos is to be fair, transparent and trustworthy. OnBuy is designed to work for sellers, not against them, so we will never compete with them – instead, we help sellers grow their sales.
The chance to partner with one of the fastest-growing marketplaces in the world isn’t all OnBuy offer! OnBuy sellers get competitive selling fees, immediate payment by PayPal on dispatch, risk-free selling forever with our Sales Guarantee (if you make less than £500 in sales in a month, we’ll waive the next month’s Standard subscription fee) and PayPal Seller Protection.
OnBuy’s focus on fairness, equality and partnership results in a better experience for buyers; they can benefit from improved pricing (thanks to the competitive fees) and increased product ranges – which ultimately means more sales for sellers!
What’s more, at OnBuy we have exciting plans to continue the exponential growth we’ve seen to date. For starters…
OnBuy’s rapid growth is set to soar
After witnessing our incredible 2019 (with 5x growth compared to 2018, over £1m in sales made for our sellers on Black Friday alone and a fantastic Christmas), a leading venture capital firm has invested into the development and growth of OnBuy.
This means OnBuy can keep growing rapidly: we plan to double the OnBuy team, focus on major marketing activity and optimise every area of the business, all to drive OnBuy forwards and provide more for sellers than ever.
Fuelled by the firm’s financial backing, OnBuy forecast another 5x growth and a sales increase of over £100m in 2020. Why wouldn’t you want to sell through OnBuy and get a slice of the action for your business?
Take your products worldwide
OnBuy already have the power to expand your audience and grow your sales in the UK. Just imagine the uptick in business when we expand into 22 new online trading locations by the end of 2020 – and a combined 140 locations by year-end 2023!
We appreciate that cross-border expansion can be a tough hurdle for any business, so we’ll make it as easy as possible for sellers. OnBuy want to offer online retailers a viable and efficient online international selling channel, so we’ll offer optional auto-translation and auto-currency conversion but allow sellers to disable the settings for each country so their set-up works for their business.
That’s not all: by partnering with specialist multi-carrier delivery management solutions like Parcelhub that offer smart software, OnBuy can help sellers skip the headache of managing international delivery requirements. Make sure you don’t miss out: sell internationally with OnBuy in 2020!
New partnerships will add immense value
Cas Paton, CEO and founder of OnBuy, says: “Partnership has always been vital to us at OnBuy, both in terms of partnering with our sellers to offer them a fairer, more transparent marketplace and adding integrations that will add further value to their online selling experience.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for our sellers to manage their orders on OnBuy and other channels so partnering with Parcelhub was an obvious choice for us. Parcelhub’s portfolio links over 20 carriers and offers over 600 delivery options, all managed from one access point, which will help our sellers streamline operations and take some of the stress out of selling online.”
James Hayes from Parcelhub commented: “We see OnBuy as one of the most exciting marketplaces in the UK right now, so we wanted to partner with them to offer our customers the opportunity to showcase their products to new audiences and ultimately increase their revenue.
“By integrating with OnBuy, we can offer sellers seamless access to our unique portfolio of carriers and services. What’s more, Parcelhub will offer existing OnBuy sellers a free shipping consultation! We’ll review your marketplace delivery performance and current delivery options then advise how you can optimise these.”
Whether you want to grow your UK sales or capitalise on our cross-border expansion plans, you’ll no doubt see why OnBuy is the marketplace for online retailers in 2020 and beyond.
