Grow your eCommerce sales with OnBuy.com, the UK’s largest Amazon disrupter

Looking to grow your online sales? Call off the search for your next sales channel: OnBuy.com is the answer! Considered Britain’s answer to Amazon as they continue to disrupt the marketplace sector, OnBuy is the fastest-growing UK marketplace and a no-brainer for all sellers to join – no matter the size of your business.

What is OnBuy?

OnBuy is a B2C online marketplace showcasing phenomenal growth, with millions of current buyers and more visitors coming to the site daily. OnBuy was officially ranked as the number one UK-owned marketplace earlier this year after witnessing an incredible increase in sales and site traffic.

How is OnBuy different to other marketplaces and sales channels?

Along with promising never to compete with their sellers by selling their own products, OnBuy’s core USP is lower sales fees. Since their launch in 2016, they’ve strived to offer you a better, fairer marketplace to sell on – and how better to do this than giving you lower fees than the competition?

By offering fees of just 5-9% (compared to Amazon’s fees of up to 15%!), you can easily price competitively and pass the savings on to buyers – without losing profit. This ultimately attracts more buyers and helps to grow your sales with little extra effort from you. This forward-thinking business model benefits both buyers and sellers, paving the way for more of the spectacular growth the marketplace has seen to date.

OnBuy benefits from a unique partnership with PayPal. The first marketplace to partner with the global payment specialists since eBay, OnBuy provides their sellers with a more secure selling experience. OnBuy is the only B2C marketplace where sellers are paid immediately – as soon as a seller marks an item as dispatched, PayPal will release the funds to their PayPal account ready for withdrawal. OnBuy never holds sellers’ money, and sellers are never made to wait for their money, which brings huge cash flow benefits you won’t get from other marketplaces.

Every transaction made on OnBuy is encrypted with PayPal’s next-level technology and monitored to prevent fraud. Sellers can benefit from the PayPal Seller Protection scheme on eligible orders so you can sell in complete confidence, knowing you’re covered.

What’s more: Standard Sellers can benefit from a first-of-its-kind Sales Guarantee – if they don’t make £500 in sales that month, OnBuy will waive the next month’s subscription fee. Not only does this offer peace of mind and no risk for sellers, but it highlights OnBuy’s belief in their own ability to perform.

What does OnBuy do to boost sales for its sellers?

OnBuy aggressively market your products. They regularly push products through to Google and Bing Shopping, along with other external marketing channels and price comparison sites to give your products more exposure. And the best bit? It’s included in your OnBuy seller account package; they don’t charge you extra because they want to help boost your sales and make you maximum profit.

The OnBuy team will also create unique SEO content for products that are selling well, helping improve their visibility through search rankings.

Not only do OnBuy level the playing field by not competing with their sellers, but they support sellers of all sizes: if you’re selling your own-branded products, you can claim these as your own with the OnBuy Brand Ownership function to protect your brand.

How do sellers list their products on OnBuy?

OnBuy operates a catalogue system which allows multiple sellers to list on the same product – and gives you even more incentive to price competitively! OnBuy has over 4000 live product categories, and they’re working to add more daily based on current sellers’ needs.

You can either create your products manually, populate their template with data or use one of the many channel systems they’ve integrated with that supports this. OnBuy’s current integration list includes Linnworks, StoreFeeder and ChannelAdvisor, with more being added regularly.

What kind of support does OnBuy offers it sellers?

As an OnBuy seller, you’ll get your own personal account manager who’ll be your point of contact throughout your time selling on OnBuy. They aren’t just there to help when you have an issue, either: they actively monitor your account and do all they can to ensure you’re making the most of selling with OnBuy.

OnBuy also boasts a dedicated UK-based support team that’re always happy to help out with any queries or issues about products and listings. While listing your products on OnBuy is straightforward, they can upload your inventory for you or guide you through doing it yourself.

What do OnBuy have planned for the future?

Sales were up 11x from 2017-18 and sales are 13x higher in 2019 than 2018, proving the marketplace is only going in one direction – and that’s up!

Not just satisfied with revolutionising the marketplace sector in the UK, OnBuy are planning to expand into 140 countries across the world in the next few years.
