Onbuy introduce commission only selling plan

onbuy-hmWe’ve heard loud and clear from Tamebay readers that, whilst they like the idea of an new competitor to eBay and Amazon, they don’t like the idea of supporting a site with a monthly fee while it’s growing. OnBuy have also heard you as they are introducing a new service tier to support smaller sellers with no monthly commitment.

Cas Paton, managing director of OnBuy, explained saying “We have listened carefully to feedback from some of the smaller sellers who don’t want to pay a monthly fee that may absorb a large portion of their profits”.

Today OnBuy has launched “Onbuy Basic Seller” in response to feedback from customers. OnBuy basic sellers pay no subscription fee at all, and OnBuy charges a selling fee of just 6%.

OnBuy is continuing to offer their no commission £49-a-month subscription for the majority of sellers, as well as its premium no commission £89-a-month subscription for managed sellers. Sellers signing up to be an “OnBuy Seller” and paying the £49-a-month subscription pay no commission fees, as well as API access.

Sellers can also upgrade to become an “OnBuy Managed Seller” and pay the £89-a-month subscription, which includes no commission fees, API access, advertising opportunities, prominent placement and tailored account management and support from the OnBuy team.

OnBuy is growing every week and has already signed up sellers offering 2.4m product lines since its launch at the beginning of November.
