OnBuy made the BBC News in the January sales

No primary category set

With the post Christmas January sales in full swing, OnBuy made the BBC News. Alastair Fee, Business Correspondent at BBC South, visited OnBuy’s headquarters in Poole to meet the team and find out more about how they have grown so quickly over the last year.

Featuring a couple of large OnBuy sellers – World of Books and Longacres Garden Centre, the news bulletin focused on OnBuy’s proposition that they’re making it cheaper to sell online meaning that these savings can be passed on to consumers – an attractive message during the January sales.

“We were keen to get involved. They have got lower prices, lower commission rates than some of the other marketplaces and it gets us in front of people we would not normally be able to reach.”
– Michael Ainley, IT Manager, Longacres Garden Centre

It is also interesting to get a behind the scenes look at World of Books warehouse – as one of the biggest book sellers in the world. I’m always fascinated by sellers and to say that the World of Books operation certainly looks busy is an understatement!

“Any new marketplace that trades in the UK and in Europe is welcome. With Brexit approaching, it’s more important than ever that we are able to trade on numerous global platforms.”
– Stephen Boobyer, Managing Director of World of Books

OnBuy have grown massively over the last year but are still a relatively new marketplace, what would convince you to sign up and give them a try?
