Marketplace Jungle Podcast with Jesse Wragg

For many marketplace sellers, it can be hard to identify and capitalise on the opportunities that exist beyond Amazon. Technology like Mirakl helps to remove some of the technical barriers to getting started, but there are no end of other issues standing in the way of an expansion beyond Amazon.

It was with this in mind that Jesse Wragg from eCommeleon started the Marketplace Jungle podcast – designed to explore the world of marketplaces beyond Amazon. Jesse uses this podcast format to interview sellers who are successful on multiple marketplaces as well as industry experts and marketplaces themselves.

I’m thrilled to be the latest guest, as Jesse invited me to share my story and my views on the marketplace landscape at large. We discussed a range of topics during the interview, but some of the highlights included:

  • My own journey into eCommerce – how I got started selling on eBay and how I the ChannelX website got started
  • How you can protect your business from the sudden loss of a marketplace channel – whether through an account suspension or through the closure of a marketplace
  • The pros & cons of selling on marketplaces as a third-party seller
  • Which steps you should take when evaluating marketplaces beyond Amazon

Some other interesting episodes which are worth a listen could include:

  • Valerie Dichtl – exploring the marketplace landscape in Europe for fashion brands
  • Stefan Haney – the ‘Godfather of Seller Central’ – talking about his time at Amazon on building the various seller tools, as well as his more recent experiences at other marketplaces
  • “Meet the Marketplace” episodes with Tony Preedy (Fruugo) and Lennard Kressin (Limango)

If you’ve got a great story to tell about your own marketplace journey, Jesse is always on the look out for interesting guests – just reach out to him on LinkedIn.
