How to become a Gumtree Daily Deals supplier

No primary category set

This Christmas 70% of us will be tempted off the High Street and onto a Daily Deal site to make a purchase according to new research by Gumtree, who now offer Daily Deals. On average buyers will make £75.00 savings by bagging Daily Deal savings and Gumtree are currently running a “12 days of Christmas” series of deals to tempt buyers

Gumtree reckon that 40% of Brits are are tightening their purse strings and spending less on Christmas this year than last year. Therefore, it’s not surprising that people are looking at ways to save money and many are going several steps further than just buying Christmas presents using sites that offer daily deals. 37% are aiming to fund their entire Christmas, from cards and decorations to party outfits and Christmas dinner, using sites that offer daily deals.

As a seller are you taking advantage of the growing trend of buyers looking for a bargain? The chances are that with eBay’s current policy of almost exclusively offering deals from Outlets you’re not getting a look in there, but there are plenty of other deals sites around.

Could you supply a Gumtree Daily Deal?

Gumtree Daily Deals are a little more enlightened than eBay – they’re up for deals ranging from experiences to products and even ran a deal for Free PayPal Cash a few weeks back. If you’ve got some great products and are interested in supply Gumtree with Daily Deals you can apply on the Gumtree Website to become a supplier.

Typical Gumtree Daily Deals range from from experiences and holidays to beauty and clothes. Hamish Stone from Gumtree told us “Gumtree Daily Deals boosts the user experience further by offering consumers the chance to help choose what deals come next through Facebook and Twitter. We’re also taking note of the research findings and introducing a festive offering of 12 deals of Christmas to help people get the things they need for less, over this expensive time. Bargain hunters across the UK are cottoning on to the power of shopping using daily deals services as they take the stress and sting out of this year’s festive season”.

Are you supplying any Daily Deals sites with your products, whether eBay, Gumtree, other sites or perhaps your own website? If you are let us know what your experience of running Daily Deals is and any tips you have when pitching as a Deals supplier.

  1. I could not recommend Gumtree at all. We have ran a couple of deals with them and our experience has not been good.
    While it does encourage a good number of sales in a small space of time, the % cut that they take means you make very small profits. This would be bearable if we could get paid from Gumtree. 7 weeks after first advertising with them and after sending out over £4,000 of products we are still fighting with them to get payment which has now been promised within the next 5 days – we shall see!!!
    On a side note I’m looking for software to automate our PayPal account with shipping software and RMDMO and also stock control etc. We have used Aimco’s packing partner for the last 12 months but need something that will integrate more with RMDMO and also offer more in the way of stock management and offline sales inputs. Any ideas?

  2. I have beeen using Gumtee and ebay both, but I do only suggest ebay as a good website for selling products. I have sold many of my products through ebay and I am actually growing my business. 🙂
