With over 180 stores across the UK and Ireland, strategic alliances with brands such as Iceland, the roll-out of their very own luxury Kitchen Showrooms, and a trading history that stretches back over 30 years; The Range is now set to launch their latest business venture. This Autumn, The Range will allow trusted third-party partners to sell via their website, creating the new Range Marketplace.
The Range Marketplace will increase the variety of products for shoppers to choose from, whilst enabling suppliers to reach 15 million customers per week. Described as a transparent and easy way to reach new audiences, The Range Marketplace prides itself on ensuring that there is no steep learning curve for suppliers, with a simple application process and fast product loading procedure. Alongside elevating their supplier partners’ products, as well as exposing them to thousands of daily web visitors, there are also no setup, subscription or monthly fees, only fees after a product are sold.
Aiming to help partners in reaching their business aspirations, The Range will provide support to marketplace partners from day one, enabling them to connect their products to the right customers and maximise sales.
The Range breaks it down into three simple steps: add your items, fulfil your orders, and get paid. Suppliers will also enjoy exclusive selling rights, so there’s no competition with other marketplace partners for the same product. With 30% of the products sold on The Range’s website this summer having been from their trusted third-party suppliers, The Range Marketplace seems to be a logical and business-enhancing next step in the development of the company.
