Finding the main marketplaces to sell on is relatively easy in the UK – there’s eBay and Amazon, some specialist sites like Etsy, NotOnTheHighStreet and Yumbles, and some newcomers such as OnBuy and Flubit and Fruugo. What’s harder is finding marketplaces run by retailers as they are not so highly promoted and in many cases aren’t known for running a marketplace. To solve this problem for the marketplaces that they power, Mirakl have launched Mirakl Connect.
The aim of Mirakl Connect is to be a global marketplace ecosystem bringing together the Marketplace community. It is the first professional networking platform where Marketplaces and Sellers can meet and start doing business together. By joining Mirakl’s global marketplace community, Sellers can quickly search, contact and register on Mirakl-powered Marketplaces. Mirakl Connect is free to join and use for Sellers with three main aims:
- Promote your business to all Mirakl-powered Marketplaces on a global scale
- Engage, from one place, with new Marketplaces that can boost their online business
- Accelerate your sales growth across Mirakl-powered Marketplaces
Since launch in June, 38 registered marketplaces shipping to Europe and North America have signed up with 550 registered sellers looking for new opportunities. This has resulted in 850 connections between Sellers and Marketplaces.
