They say that “With the addition of Alex Ferguson My Autography making it into the top five best selling products of 2013 it is a clear that although some consumers see Rakuten’s Play.com as offering the best deals for technology, the marketplace is becoming the go-to website for wider product ranges too. This is testament to Rakuten’s Play.com’s dedication to showcase excellent merchants offering a wide range of products at the best prices“.

  1. It’s interesting to see that Play are still stuck in the CD/DVD/Games end of the market, it’s going to take a lot of work for them to shrug it off.

  2. We just added c. 1600 products into their catalogue and its wasn’t all that bad to be fair… once you’re registered as a seller on there, you can add your own products via bulk upload without any human intervention. Picked up 20 or so sales over the weekend – not groundbreaking by any stretch, but better than a kick in the teeth at the same time!

  3. The top 5 best selling products for Christmas are DVD and Games? I bet that nobody heard of little unique gifts for everyday use – Parax Stone Paper – Waterproof and Tear Resistant Notebooks and Gift Bags Made from Stone. Really smooth paper to write on. Tree Free and Eco Friendly too! I would recomment to any one who likes unique gadgets!:)
