How OnBuy Selling Works

Just like our customers' buying experience, we want selling on OnBuy to be simple, secure and rewarding. To help you visualise both, we've outlined the process of becoming an OnBuy seller, along with the OnBuy customer and seller journey below:

Process of Becoming an OnBuy Seller

1. Register your interest

2. Create your OnBuy Seller account

Once we're both confident OnBuy will work for you, we'll invite you to come on board and create your account by completing our simple seller sign-up form. We'll ask for details about your business, like your trading information, and your preferred account type.

3. Set up your payment account

During the sign-up process, we'll ask you to create or connect a PayPal business account. We use PayPal to process payments on your behalf so you own the transaction with the customer directly and know OnBuy will never hold your money.

What's more, every transaction made through PayPal is protected with data encryption and monitored to prevent fraud, email phishing and identity theft, giving you complete confidence when selling on OnBuy.

4. List your product inventory

As OnBuy is a catalogue system, you can list against our existing products with ease. No product matches? No problem: create as many listings as you like through your Seller Control Panel! If you have any questions, simply get in touch with our helpful Support Team via the Seller Control Panel.

See Creating Listings >

5. You are now live and ready to sell on OnBuy!

Congratulations: your products are live and ready to be snapped up by our customers! As soon as you start making sales, the payments will land directly in your PayPal account. We hope you're ready to enjoy simple, secure selling - and OnBuy's low sales fees, of course!

OnBuy Seller Customer Experience

The Customer
The Seller
  1. A customer explores OnBuy's extensive catalogue and finds a product that he wishes to buy.
  2. The customer clicks "Buy Now" to add the product to their shopping basket before checking out securely with PayPal.
  3. A seller receives notification of a new order through their Seller Control Panel and by email.
  4. The customer receives a "Thank You" email from OnBuy along with confirmation of their payment.
  5. After being picked and packed up safely, the order is shipped off to its final destination.
  6. The seller then marks the order as dispatched from within their Seller Control Panel - now to wait for the reviews to roll in.
  7. The payment, subject to very low PayPal fees, lands in the seller's PayPal account ready to be withdrawn.
  8. Once their order arrives, the customer will be invited to leave reviews on OnBuy.
