- Wide Variety of Products & Services
For sale is a highly successful and reputable e-commerce marketplace, offering over 60,000 country lifestyle gifts, crafts and products from across the UK.
This brilliant business highlights stunning products made by a variety of sellers, attracting up to 30,000 monthly marketplace visitors. The business was born during COVID as a replacement for country shows and fairs, and has continued to thrive ever since.
Their easy to use, fully-functioning website allows customers to place orders directly from a huge selection of products, from food and beverages to countrywear, crafts, supplies, gifts and homeware.
Over the years, the business has built up a large and loyal customer base, with an email database of over 3,500 contacts. They also boast over 20,000 Facebook followers and over 5,000 across Instagram.
Boasting brilliant reviews and thousands of items, the website has an impressive amount of page views per month and scope to increase with further marketing.
The business operates by placing their sellers on a subscription model – with the choice of monthly, six-monthly or annual subscriptions. The majority of the profit comes from these subscriptions. They also charge a sale fee of 7% from the seller, with PayPal taking 5% of that.
The subscription and percentage figures are not set in stone, therefore, could be adapted if a new vendor wishes to do so. All stock is drop-shipped so there is no space required for stock. The flexible nature of the business means it could easily be relocated as suits a new owner - with the potential to work from home.
In the past, the business has executed a thorough marketing strategy which has seen great success. Organising more campaigns of this nature would be a fantastic way to increase brand awareness.
Also, diversifying the product categories available within the marketplace could potentially attract a wider customer base of both buyers and sellers.
