ASOS Marketplace launched in 2010 and since then it has become the leading online platform for independent brands and vintage boutiques selling online.
Asos Marketplace introduce 5 new charity boutiques
According to reports, Asos Marketplace have added 5 new charity boutiques to its platform showing support for charity sellers who will be able to benefit from an online presence during the current pandemic. Asos will be introducing Cancer Research UK and Royal Trinity Hospice, and welcoming back Oxfam Festival Shop, Save the Children, and British Red Cross.
“This has been a challenging year for many of our charity partners, but it has also had its positives, with more clothing donations than ever before. We’re incredibly proud to be supporting the work of our partners again this season by making it possible for our customers to easily and responsibly shop vintage, and we’d encourage anyone who has fallen out of love with their clothes to donate them to a charity in need.”
– Jo Hunt, head of Marketplace, Asos
The charities will be selling a range of trending products and festive clothing accessories leading into the Christmas period and they will receive all proceeds made from selling on the platform meaning Asos will not receive any commission.
“We’re thrilled to be launching our boutique and collaborating with Asos Marketplace this year. All of our shops are in London so we’re especially excited to meet new customers who might not have visited us before.
“Our Asos Marketplace boutique will bring Royal Trinity Hospice shops’ signature blend of one-of-a-kind vintage, designer and high street pieces online. We’re bringing our customers the very best in preloved and vintage from McQueen tailoring, grunge-inspired leather and denim to genuine Y2K vintage, so they can build a wardrobe as unique as they are.”
– Daniel Holloway, director of retail at Royal Trinity Hospice
