OnBuy has been awarded Online Retailer of the Year at the annual, prestigious PC Retail awards 2021.
We don’t habitually write about awards on Tamebay as generally companies winning them don’t assist you to grow your business, but in this case it’s interesting for two reasons. Firstly, OnBuy aren’t actually a retailer and don’t compete with you when you’re selling on the platform so this is really an award for OnBuy merchants rather than the marketplace themselves (Congratulations if you are an OnBuy retailer!). Secondly it’s actually rather important as OnBuy are still relatively new in consumer’s eyes and as the marketplace wins awards it can only increase their profile and that’s also good for retailers.
The PC Retail Awards event was hosted by well-known British presenter Gabby Logan, celebrating technology businesses from all over the UK. Held at The Grand Connaught rooms in London, the awards honoured incredible companies operating in the UK PC and technology industry from distributors and resellers to retailers, vendors and beyond.
Since its launch in 2016, UK-based OnBuy has seen phenomenal year on year growth, amassing more than 7,000 merchants on the platform and over 36 million products. The OnBuy team who have helped to secure this growth were delighted to attend the awards and felt honoured to be in the same room with so many exciting companies in the sector.
“We were honoured to collect this prestigious award on behalf of the whole OnBuy team. The PC Retail Awards in tech retail is a huge win for us, as it recognises the exceptional work the team are putting into this sector.
Congratulations to all finalists and winners and thank you to the PCR team for pulling together a truly wonderful event. We had a fantastic evening celebrating our win with so many great people in the industry. We are already looking forward to next year’s awards.”
