Introducing: Pedlars Vintage Marketplace!
August 02, 2016 - Product News
Established in the summer of 2016, Pedlars Vintage Marketplace is a new venture for Pedlars that enables vintage dealers and enthusiasts to offer their goods for sale via Pedlars. Pedlars has a solid reputation for sourcing and selling the best vintage items and a large and eager customer base; our aim is to expand our offer by inviting sellers to show our customers their goods. Pedlars Vintage Marketplace will enable our Partners to reach our large customer base while representing your goods in the best possible light. It's a little bit like a really tiny, beautifully curated, exciting and aesthetically pleasing eBay. We want to create the best curated vintage community in Britain; a sort of high-quality virtual flea market.
How does it work?
You select your goods, photograph them using our handy guide (and maybe add a bit of video), set your price, write some copy and send it all to us. We put the goods in our Marketplace and email our newsletter subscribers with your photos. Customers buy from our website and you dispatch the goods (or if you prefer, you send them to us and we despatch from our warehouse). Our sell through rates are high -we sell 85% of our vintage goods very quickly- and there seems to be a higher demand for vintage than we can sustain. Our customers trust us and are happy with their purchases; returns are so tiny as to be negligible.
But I already have a shop/warehouse/website!
All we are doing is offering a new and trusted route to market via our newsletter subscribers and a large number of people that look at our vintage offer every day. It's taken us 20 years to build our reputation as reliable taste makers. You will be showing your goods to a large and eager customer base who want to buy and who trust our taste. You can remove your items from Pedlars if you sell them elsewhere. The Marketplace simply gives your goods wide exposure to a network of people with great taste and disposable income.
What do I gain?
Well, it's highly likely your goods will sell quickly. And you get a new customer who you can then deal with in future.
What does Pedlars gain?
Well, we take a commission of 20%. We also get wider exposure for our website. And we want to become the best, most respected community for people who share our vintage tastes and enthusiasms.
Get in touch with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your website, Instagram or simply attach a few photos of your stock and we'll get back to you with all the information you'll need, plus the necessary Ts&Cs.
