No Secret – Flubit Takes Your Retail Business Beyond the Online Marketplace

It’s no secret: Flubit has been helping savvy online retailers reach (and sell to) an audience of millions of price-conscious consumers in the UK for more than five years now. You probably already know that Flubit is the UK’s largest independent online marketplace for branded retail products, with more than 1,500 retailers selling in excess of 50 million products.

It’s common knowledge that consumers love Flubit because it gives them access to great products at amazing prices, and that retailers love Flubit because it helps them reach new customers while maintaining control over their marketing and sales costs.

But is the tip of an iceberg of technology, developed by a team of 30 engineers, that processes 24 million stock and price updates per day - that’s 500 per second. Their product data management technology cleanses and clusters data provided by merchants to create clean, rich master product records. And their market intelligence automatically identifies which products have the highest blend of popularity, margin and price-competitiveness vs Amazon.

And did you know that Flubit isn’t just an online marketplace? It’s also a distribution network that positions your products across multiple high-volume sales venues. 

Beyond Marketplace Sales

By partnering with major brands in retail, publishing, finance, logistics and marketing, Flubit gives retailers access to millions of online shoppers outside of the “traditional” online marketplace. As such, Flubit provides a route to market any serious online retailer should not ignore.

While Flubit is constantly developing its partner network (keep your eyes on this blog for more information), here are just a few alternative sales channels Flubit retailers can enjoy:
  • Mighty Deals: The UK voucher code site shares a customised feed of Flubit retailers’ offers via the Mighty Deals website and its 500,000-strong email subscriber base.
  • Flubit Go: Flubit has partnered with On the Dot (a technology brand owned by UK delivery network CitySprint), to power a new same-day delivery service (with guaranteed one-hour delivery slots) for online shoppers in London, Manchester and Birmingham. This will enable Flubit retailers to compete with major online retailers like Amazon on ultra-convenient delivery as well as on price.
  • Trinity Mirror plc: Flubit’s partnership with the UK’s largest newspaper, magazine and digital publisher will enable retailers to reach 6 million shoppers per week through a custom web shop containing only Flubit products.
  • Ssshhh: There are a few things in the pipeline that Flubit isn’t quite ready to announce in detail just yet, but these will include partnerships with major affiliate networks, cash-back sites, third-party marketplaces, publishers and other major online brands that will drive high volumes of sales to your retail business. Watch this space for further announcements.
With no listing or final value seller fees and the ease with which products can be added to the database (if you use a multi-channel retail solution like ChannelAdvisor, VOLO, Linnworks, Magento, StoreFeeder or SellerExpress, you’re pretty much good to go), Flubit provides a simple, cost-effective and profitable route to market. 

While Flubit is certainly no secret (with deals as good as those Flubit has access to, it would be impossible to stay under the radar), you might be surprised just how far you can go as a Flubit retailer.
