The big question, how does it work?
At the moment we have two parts to the website, one where shops and professional sellers and sign up and the other where private sellers can pay a one off listing fee to advertise their products.
First we will cover the private seller section.
This plan offers just a small listing fee for a monthly advert (from £1.95 per advert), there is no commission and you deal direct with the buyer to arrange your own payment and collection/delivery. We also offer a private+ plan which allows you to advertise up to 10 products from just £19.95 per month. These are a great alternative to the bigger companies who charge you a hefty commission (up to 14% of the sale price!) or listing fees and as we are a specific cycle marketplace all our visitors come to our site for one reason and thats to view and look for their new cycling kit where as some other sites advertise anything from houses to cars to clothing so you are getting a very broad range of people viewing your product but many don't have an interest in it and you regularly get timewasters.
Another major bonus is we have lots of buyers on our books specifically looking for used bikes and parts, whether this be due to budget or a certain bike which is no longer produced. For just one cheap listing fee you could get your bike in front of these buyers and hugely increase your chance of a sale.
Now going on to the business seller plans, again we have two of these available.
The first being a simple package with no sign up fee, no monthly fees or hidden extras. You simply pay a small commission from each sale (less than 6%!) this plan gives you full access to the seller platform where you have your own admin panel, sales records, product categories and mini store which you can then use as your own website. This is perfect for smaller shops with no or an outdated website as you instantly have access to a website with built in marketing packages for free!
Within the commission is the card processing fees which means you will get the full amount minus our commission, there is no additional card fees to pay as we cover these charges for you. This allows you to accept all payment methods including AMEX from day one, this is a high specification platform which will allow you to go from a small independent bike shop to online specialist within a matter of hours. The plat form is easily customisable and we have guides and staff on hand to help you create the adverts and answer any questions.
The second package we offer replicates the above in terms of features however this comes with a monthly subscription price, the commission is almost halved on this package. If your sales are increasing and you feel the commission is getting a bit high you can switch to this plan, lower your commission and pay just a monthly fee and a small commission which again includes your card processing fees so there is no hidden extras to pay, you will get the full amount minus our commission from each sale.
Initial feedback has been excellent with a range of shops already signing up before we even launched, click the B2C sign up and join today with no fee or extras. What have you got to lose?
