OnBuy Announces Key Partnership With Shipping Platform Easyship
OnBuy.com has announced its strategic partnership with Easyship, a leader in global eCommerce shipping solutions.
Since its launch in 2016, UK-based OnBuy has seen phenomenal year-on-year growth, amassing more than 7,000 sellers on the platform and over 35 million products. As the trend for online marketplaces continues to rise - seeing other retail giants moving into the space - this growth is set to continue, pushing OnBuy into new and exciting territory.
Paired with the results of its recent £35M Series A+ funding round, OnBuy has developed a roadmap of exciting new developments. With platform enhancements well underway and a series of recent specialist and senior hires, OnBuy has set its sights on global expansion, and as such has been working to create a cohesive infrastructure to support merchants and customers worldwide.
This partnership with Easyship will provide sellers on the platform with seamless access to a range of tools along with omnichannel cross-border fulfilment capabilities that will support and enable simplified domestic and international shipping. As OnBuy expands into global markets, Easyship will be an essential vehicle for merchants’ growth at scale.
Cas Paton, founder and CEO of OnBuy comments, “OnBuy has exceeded our expectations in terms of growth and we’ve been proud to serve each and every one of our merchants with unmatchable scale in the eCommerce space. As we look to venture into new markets, we want to bring our trusted retailers on the journey with us, and provide them with the tools they need to reach their customers wherever they might be. This partnership is a solid step on the journey to global expansion and we’re delighted to be welcoming Easyship into the fold.”
Beyond optics across all shipments, the partnership will benefit sellers with a suite of additional fulfilment features including management of inventory, delivery, returns and third-party logistics. These capabilities will allow OnBuy retailers to sell and ship anywhere in the world.
Supporting the new partnership is Rob Evans, Director of Rarewaves.com, an award-winning retailer and one of the largest online retailers of entertainment products in the world, who comments, “OnBuy has been a tool for success for Rarewaves. A like-minded brand in terms of growth capabilities, we share the same goals and want to reach as many people as we can with our range of entertainment products. Knowing this partnership will support our goals, we’re excited about the possibility to grow our audience base even further and bring our brand values to new markets.”
The partnership, effective now, marks another solid step for OnBuy’s ambitious plans to reach unicorn status in the coming years, with global expansion proving an important milestone for the company. As the brand prepares to roll out new market deployment, the logistical solutions enabled by Easyship will be an exciting development that will appeal to a host of new merchants with international growth in their sights.
