ARKS Global is pleased to announce that we are launching on UK marketplace

What is OnBuy?

We launched in November 2016 and are now the fastest-growing marketplace in the world. How, you ask?

We saw what other major marketplaces offered and thought we could improve on this – so we did! We created a fairer, more transparent marketplace that puts its buyers and sellers first. By doing this, we can offer you all the same advantages as the leading marketplaces but in a new way that benefits everyone.

As we aim to be fair and transparent, we don’t compete with our sellers by selling anything ourselves and we never will. We’re here to connect buyers like you with thousands of professional business sellers (and vice versa) to bring you a simple, secure shopping experience.

Since launching in 2016, we’ve welcomed sellers of all sizes on board, from household names to smaller independent retailers. By making a fairer platform for sellers, they work with us to offer you a wider product range than other marketplaces. With our competitive fees, they can price better too – all so we can bring you the best products, prices and service possible.

Following the demise of both Rakuten UK and Flubit in recent years, there hasn’t really been any dedicated UK online marketplace to compete with the likes of eBay and Amazon, so we’re more than happy to offer our support to OnBuy.

While we wait for our software provider to finalise a working integration with OnBuy, we’ll be ‘testing the waters’ by offering a limited range of our products for sale, in order to help us assess and manage demand.

So far we have one single product offered for sale, our very popular Thetford Porta Potti 165 portable chemical toilet, and it is very pleasing to see that we have already sold over 20 of these since listing for sale on Friday evening.

We hope that regular OnBuy shoppers will enjoy our full range of products once we get them all listed for sale there, and if you haven’t shopped yourself on OnBuy, why not have a browse there instead?
