About ChannelX

ChannelX, formely Tamebay, is the leading provider of intelligence & news for all businesses and business people who ply their trade on online marketplaces, whether they are experienced powersellers looking to boost sales, or beginners seeking advice and best practice.

ChannelX was originally set up to provide eBay users with the tools to tame a seemingly impenetrable marketplace (hence the name). The site has since developed to cater to merchants and businesses operating across any or all of the major online marketplaces, helping them to sell more and sell better. From articles to ebooks, from webinars to events, ChannelX is the go-to resource if you’re looking for information to help your business flourish.

“Tamebay is the most useful ecommerce information site I have come across. I have signed up with three ecommerce services that I heard about first on Tamebay in the last three weeks…” Bryn Morgan, Multi-channel marketplace seller.

Our Story

Sue Bailey and Chris Dawson, two British PowerSellers, founded Tamebay in 2006. Following Sue’s untimely passing in 2011, Dan Wilson, one of the founding members of eBay in the UK, stepped in and has played a huge hand in bringing ChannelX to what it is today – a vital resource for thousands of marketplace sellers worldwide.

We also belong to a larger family of brands, including InternetRetailing, eDelivery and RetailX each specialising in providing analysis and research for ecommerce professionals.
