Exciting news from Tamebay

By Dan Wilson August 5, 2015 - 6:00 pm

Tamebay Internet Retailing hmTamebay began as a labour of love. It started as a community resource for eBay sellers as a sideline. In the 9 years since inception, Tamebay has grown in scale and complexity and covers a much broader scope today: providing all the news and help we can to assist ecommerce SMEs grow their businesses.

With the increasing volume of content we publish, combined with the growing complexity of ecommerce and the various aspects of running the Tamebay business, we’ve been spreading ourselves a little thinly. In the past year or so it’s become clear to us that if Tamebay is to reach its full potential, then we’d need some outside help.

So we’re excited to announce that Tamebay has entered into an agreement to become part of the Internet Retailing group. They’re well-respected publishers specialising in ecommerce for retailers. We’ve known them for some years and they’re the perfect match for Tamebay.

Moving forward the deal means we’ll have access to the broad base of talent they have. Whether that’s analytics, tech and design or commercial expertise, Tamebay will be able to tap into their considerable complementary experience. And also, it means we can develop the Tamebay platform in future to ensure that it’s completely fit for purpose.

Don’t worry, we’re not going anywhere and we will continue to run and direct the editorial aspects of Tamebay. And we’ll be able to focus much more keenly on producing excellent content and news.

We enter Tamebay’s tenth year in November, ecommerce continues to grow and Tamebay has to develop with it. We are totally committed to Tamebay and continuing to bring you all the vital ecommerce news we can. And we think this partnership puts us in the best position to do exactly that.

Of course, it’s only down to you that we’re here at all. So, we must extend big thanks to all the readers of Tamebay who make it what it is. And please do keep sending us all those stories and tip-offs. We couldn’t do it without you.

Editors, Tamebay

    I read the Tamebay news every day and have done so for many years now. It’s become indispensable to me and my team now read it too. Long may it continue. Congratulations to you both.

      Its the only blog / news site I read on a regular basis. Really like the summary emails each day and never fail to read them and have utilised many services which I heard about through Tamebay.

    Congratulations to the two of you!

    it’s a testament to the great work you’ve put in over the years. Having worked for both a marketplace and marketplace partner, I’ve always found Tamebay to be a valuable source of information, and I trust it will continue to be so.

    Well done chaps, onwards and upwards.

    Hard to believe it’s almost 10 years old, I remember when tamebay was an idea on the eBay Powerseller board….. and all this was green fields. :-)

    • 2 years ago

      Ah those good old days…. Seems like a life time ago and was the age of PowerSeller Pointers and eBay Universities… all long gone but happy memories :-)

    Congrats lads. Hope you’ll keep the ‘no nonsense, no corporate spiel, yeah but what does it do for me’ writing style!

    • 2 years ago


      ‘No nonsense, no corporate spiel, yeah but what does it do for me.’

      I like that summing up of Tamebay and that’s what we plan to keep on doing.

      Chris and I aren’t going anywhere. And I think we’re both unlikely to change.

      If you don’t think we live up to ‘no nonsense, no corporate spiel, yeah but what does it do for me’ you should call us out for it. :o)

    It just goes to show that in any competitive market, quality will always flourish. I still miss the brutally honest humour of Sue and I’m sure she would approve of the growth of Tamebay.
    Well done guys, keep it up.
