eBay & eCommerce Tools & Services Guide 2012
Welcome

Tamebay is the UK’s foremost eBay and ecommerce blog. It was founded in 2007 by Chris
Dawson and Sue Bailey, two British ecommerce professionals who, between them have traded on
eBay for over two decades, and have more than 70,000 positive feedback comments (and just 2
negs!).
Chris and Sue met on eBay UK’s PowerSeller forum and by October 2006, both had become
frustrated with eBay’s inability to keep their users informed of new features on the site, with
the impenetrability of eBay’s help pages, and with the lack of a UK and Europe-centered news
site for all things ecommercial. In a moment between classes at eBay University, Dan Wilson
said what were to be fatal words: “you need a blog”. Tamebay is the result.
In 2011, over 70,000 readers visited the site each month making Tamebay one of the best places
on the web to keep up to date with everything eBay and to network with fellow eBay
professional sellers. Over the years, the focus of Tamebay has expanded to cover other
ecommerce marketplaces such as Amazon and others. And to also provide information news of
relevance to all ecommerce professionals.
Sadly, in August 2011, Sue Bailey died. We were overwhelmed by the messages of condolence
and support we received from Tamebay readers all over the world. Sue’s husband and family
expressed how much comfort they took from the warm and heartfelt sentiments and memories
so many people shared. We miss Sue every day but Tamebay lives on. We would like to dedicate
this second edition of the Tamebay guide to her memory.
As an eBay business grows there becomes a need to simplify and automate many of the day to
day tasks you will be undertaking. Everything from listing an item on eBay, printing and
posting your sales, managing your customer communications and expanding your eBay business
onto other marketplaces, your own website, shopping comparison sites and using paid search
can be done manually.
Many of the tools in this guide are little known apps which can make a huge contribution to the
way you run your eBay business. Others are better known, but you may not have had time to
fully investigate the products and services they offer. We’re confident that there is something
for everyone in this guide.
Looking forward to 2012, we predict a bumper year for ecommerce despite the global economic
crisis. We’re also looking forward to developing Tamebay into an even more useful resource
for ecommerce SMEs everywhere. In particular, we’re pleased that Dan has agreed to come on
board as co-editor.
Thank you to all the companies who have supported this guide and also Tamebay over the years.
And many thanks to all you readers who make Tamebay what it is with your many comments and
tip-offs. We couldn’t do it without you.
For the very latest eBay and ecommerce news don’t forget to visit us at tamebay.com.
Best wishes
Chris and Dan

Amazon Third Party Merchant Services 2012

Introduction
Amazon Services Europe – the fast and easy route to growth at home and abroad.
Amazon prides itself on its wide selection, attractive prices and great customer experience.
These core principles drive Amazon’s business worldwide. Amazon’s vision is to be earth’s most
customer-centric company; to build a place where people can discover anything they might
want to buy online. Amazon customers everywhere should be able to get access to a superb
selection, great prices and customer experience.
Amazon offers a suite of services to allow local businesses to extend their reach to millions of
customers across Europe and worldwide, utilising Amazon’s infrastructure and years of online
retail experience so minimising fixed cost investments for sellers. Through Amazon’s EU
Marketplace platform, Sell On Amazon allows sellers to sell their products to customers through
Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.it and Amazon.es sites. When a customer
purchases from an Amazon third-party seller on an Amazon site, Amazon handles transaction
processing and fraud protection, and sellers can choose to either fulfil orders themselves or use
Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA), where Amazon takes care of order picking, packing, delivery,
customer service and returns handling. FBA allows retailers to make use of Amazon’s world class
fulfilment infrastructure. FBA products listed on Amazon.co.uk can be purchased by millions of
customers in Europe by being exported by Amazon on the seller’s behalf to all EU member states
and for media products even to the rest of the world. With FBA’s recently released Export for
Multichannel option, Amazon can take care of delivering orders originating from your own or
other third party sites in the UK to customers throughout the EU.
“The key to being successful online is having the right selection at the right price, with the
right delivery and customer service,” said Sacha Wilson, senior manager FBA at Amazon.co.uk
Ltd. “FBA can help retailers grow their businesses by offering a window to EU customers and
providing world-class delivery and customer service. For items delivered in the UK, customers
benefit from Free Super Saver Delivery and Amazon Prime on FBA orders and can combine their
Amazon and FBA items in a single cost-saving order. Retailers benefit from building their brands
and expanding their businesses whilst adding the credibility of association with the Amazon
brand.”
As well as Selling on Amazon and FBA, Amazon also offers ecommerce solutions through its
Amazon Webstore service. Webstore is a comprehensive, full-featured ecommerce platform that
enables sellers to build and operate profitable, own-branded businesses online at a low cost of
operation, leveraging the strength and reliability of Amazon’s infrastructure and transaction
processing systems while building and maintaining their own brand.
tamebay
eBay & eCommerce Tools & Services Guide 2012
Additionally, sellers who have their own websites can also benefit from Amazon’s technology and
expertise by integrating Checkout by Amazon, the payment service provided by Amazon
Payments Europe.
Checkout by Amazon enables millions of Amazon customers to purchase securely on another
retailer’s website using their Amazon account credentials and without re-entering their delivery
and payment information. Checkout by Amazon helps sellers to gain new customers and increase
conversion.

Cargobox
In the world of eCommerce, there is one goal... to sell boxes (and more than you did last year!)
That’s where Cargobox come in because that’s what we do. And we do it well. (Our mums said
so!) Not only that, we’ve done it so well that no-one has ever heard of us!

As much as we would love to spend the rest of this page explaining to you how we have a
‘bespoke solution’ which operates on a ‘multi-channel’ level and how we ‘add value’ to your
existing business through ‘scalable solutions’ ....we just can’t because to be honest, our
buzzword dictionary is propping up the coffee table in our office so we’re afraid you’ll have to
read that stuff on all the other pages in this guide and apply them to Cargobox!

In the meantime, we offer the following description of what Cargobox as a company offer...

Cargobox sell inventory for client companies. (Sounds simple when you say it quickly) To achieve
this, we’ll work with clients in whatever capacity is required (we’re nothing if not flexible) but
in our hearts, we are first and foremost a ‘full service provider’ when it comes to outsourced
eCommerce.

This means that we gladly handle everything from warehousing, pick, pack, dispatch, customer
service, returns and anything else you can think of within the eCommerce process. (And
probably a few things you didn’t think of, like free gifts for every single buyer....)

We operate logistics from several warehouse locations in the UK, Ireland and wider Europe
which allows us to offer access to marketplaces and paying customers right across European
community.

Cargobox is founded on several core principals, (and I wouldn’t want to bore you by listing
them all here!) but suffice to say that for the purposes of this article, one of those principals
that stands out is that we have a very real “commitment to continuous service and experience
design”, and through this we aim to become one of the most innovative 3rd party eCommerce
service providers in Europe.

Our commitment to this service and experience design is evident in the fact that we have
invested heavily in our customer service operation which is UK based, and because we love what
we do, we make the majority of our customers incredibly happy.
tamebay
eBay & eCommerce Tools & Services Guide 2012

This is vital because at the end of the day, those customers are shared customers between
Cargobox and our client company because it’s our client’s brand (along with our own) that we
are representing whenever we sell a product.

For all our (apparent!) fooling around – we cannot stress how incredibly seriously we take this.
Tangible proof of this is that our lifetime feedback is 99.9% positive.

I’m not sure any other channel management company can claim the same thing..... In terms of
what we sell, we pride ourselves in not specialising in any specific product areas like many other
channel management companies – basically, ‘if you can’t eat it, we’ll sell it!’ (As long as it’s
legal!)

Generally this equates to any FMCG products but we’ll try anything once!
For example, we are currently working with Consumer Electronics Manufacturers, Clothing
Retailers, Car Manufacturers, Coffee Roasters and we even sell a Solar Powered, Waterproof,
Talking... Bible (yes, really! – And people love it.)

In many ways, Cargobox have slipped under the radar in the world of managed eBay (and other
channel) services. But that will change in 2012. (The founders wife says it has to or she’s chang-
ing the locks!) So while the founders wife has been plotting her escape, Cargobox have signed
up several blue chip companies as clients throughout Europe (to be revealed in Q1 and Q2 of
2012).
If you’d like to have a chat with us about joining our growing list of clients and helping
persuade the founders wife not to lock him out of the marital home, then please feel free
to drop us a line at sales@shopcargobox.com or give us a call on 0845 0000 578 (but please
bear in mind that if you do call, we LOVE to talk so leave plenty of time!)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So, now you know what Cargobox do (minus the buzzwords), all that’s left is for you to meet
some of the customer facing team....
Needless to say, in our office, we have a team of exceptional (hand-picked) people whose goal is
to make our customers (and each other) smile...

If we do this, the rest will take care of itself. And here they are: (No pictures though, we don’t
want to scare anyone!)

John Davies | Founder & Managing Director Tel: 0845 0000 578 | Mob: 0751 0000 578 |
email: john@shopcargobox.com
Imagine the scene: a cold damp university flat, a tatty sofa, no money and a shelf load of books.
Decision taken to sell the books on a website called eBay. All sold. Decision to sell friends books
on eBay. All sold. Decision to sell neighbours bits and bobs on eBay. All sold.

eBay & eCommerce Tools & Services Guide 2012

A degree, a masters degree (yep, avoiding work for as long as possible!), a job, a wife, two
children and one business award later, Cargobox was born. From the tatty sofa to the boardroom
it’s a several year over-night success!
JD, as he is affectionately known as in the office, is the sole founder & MD of Cargobox.
Handsome, charming, intelligent and witty (hopefully that’s the pay-rise sorted – Clara!) he
sleeps, eats and breathes Cargobox.
Clara O’Callaghan | Customer Experience Manager Tel: 0845 0000 578 | Mob: 07435 764 855
| email: clara@shopcargobox.com

Two days from starting her own business Clara discovered Cargobox... fell madly and deeply in
love with the concept - whereupon a marriage made in heaven was born!
As creator of the ‘Monday Meeting’ - Clara is all about figures, results and plans... in the role as
the chief Customer Experience Manager for Cargobox, Clara’s responsibility is to make sure that
everyone is happy... which she does by... er... telling everyone they are happy! (We know better
than to ‘argue’!)
Lover of the Volkswagen Caravelle ‘Van’ and er... Children (Mr. O’Callaghan put his foot down
after number four! – Ed.) Clara is the voice customers hear when they have a question or a
problem.... thank goodness because due to the daily responsibility of ‘managing’ four sons (and
a husband), Clara is what is known in the customer service industry as ‘unflappable’!
OK... to the tune of the Ghostbusters theme! If you have a problem, who you gonna call.....

Tony McAllister | Sales Manager Tel: 0845 0000 578 | Mob: 07837 266 559 |
email: tony@shopcargobox.com

As an old-fashioned salesman, “Tony is the ‘cheeky chappie’ that all men want to be and all
women want to be with... “ (I knew it was a mistake asking Tony to write his own ‘bio’.) As
the first employee of Cargobox Tony pretty much makes it up as he goes along, never does as
he’s told and generally gives it the “well without me you would still be working in the living
room....” speech!
History graduate, self confessed Liverpool FC nut and general all round good egg, Tony is our
resident (and first) ‘business development manager’. In this role, Tony is on his travels meeting
people constantly and is the first face of Cargobox that our clients see.... oh dear!
Please feel free to give any of us a call if you’d like to know more about Cargobox. (Or even if
you just want a chat!) www.shopcargobox.com

How to measure your success on Amazon and eBay



Knowledge is power. The more you know about your online performance the more capable you
are of fine-tuning your overall strategy for better results. The 4 tips below will guide you to
better understand how you measure up across all marketplaces, allowing you to seize
opportunities to improve your online performance.
Tip 1
Understand your Seller Rating and Reputation.
Globally, 87% of consumers are influenced by a retailer’s seller status. Being a trusted retailer is
important for attracting new customers and retaining long-time buyers. In order to be a better
seller, you need to be aware of your overall sales, top-performing products, any late shipments
and your product-listing status. Detailed reports like the one offered by ChannelAdvisor’s
Amazon 360 dashboard can give you an accurate account of your reputation on a daily basis by
tracking these crucial elements. Improving your seller reputation will improve your sales on
multiple marketplaces.
Tip 2
Identify your top-selling products.
Knowing which items are your “bread and butter” allows you to maintain consistent inventory
levels and relevant advertisements. In addition to making you a better seller, this type of
granular insight will help your bottom line. You’ll be able to spend more money ordering the
items that are known sellers, and prevent listing products that are unavailable, which can anger
buyers and lead to negative feedback scores (see #1). Keeping track of your sales and order
history will allow you to capture as much revenue as possible.
tamebay
eBay & eCommerce Tools & Services Guide 2012
Tip 3
Compare yourself to retailers that win the Amazon Buy Box.
You may think these retailers have magical powers, but there are certain aspects that are taken
into consideration when retailers win the coveted Amazon Buy Box. If you take a look at the
retailers winning the Buy Box, you’ll realise that they offer the best overall buying experience.
This is accomplished through things such as competitive pricing, product availability, reasonable
refund rates, high order volume, low negative feedback and few A-to-z guarantee claims.
Balancing these essential factors will give your products added exposure.
The Buy Box Details:

Customer Feedback How do your customers rate

A-to-Z Guarantee Claims: How often do you get
returns on your orders?
Low number of A-to-Z
Guarantee Claims
Tip 4
Know how you are performing on each marketplace, down to each individual product.
Dispersing your time and money evenly across eBay, Amazon, your webstore, etc. can be
unproductive and costly. You need to consistently evaluate your performance levels, and even
item performance, across all marketplaces in order to make the most profitable business
decisions. Comparing transactional data by date, week, month or quarter, and viewing sales and
trends across all marketplaces and your Webstore, is a guaranteed way to ensure that you’re
selling the right products in the right places.
tamebay
eBay & eCommerce Tools & Services Guide 2012

Don’t feel like you’re behind the learning curve. ChannelAdvisor’s Marketplaces solution grants
you visibility into your marketplaces performance metrics in order to make you a better seller.
The ChannelAdvisor Cross-Channel Dashboard is a vital reporting feature that measures your
online operations across all channels and gives you the ability to drill down into each channel
to compare performance on eBay versus Amazon, for example. You can also look at how each
individual product is performing on each channel to determine where to list products to yield
the highest ROI.
Further, ChannelAdvisor’s new Amazon 360 feature hones in on your Amazon metrics such as
seller rating, top-selling products, product performance and Buy Box winners all from one
central location. Measuring your marketplaces success will reinvent your selling experience,
transforming you from an e-commerce student to an online retail master.

Dzine Hub
eBay design services
If you are trading on eBay, the first step to take your business to the next level is to
subscribe to an eBay store. The next is to get your eBay store designed professionally. At
Dzine-Hub, we give your eBay store a complete face-lift with a new, unique and custom
professional design.
The sales on eBay are driven through your listings. Your prospective buyers would search for
items on eBay and arrive at your listings. Therefore, it is imperative that you catch their eye at
this stage. Instead of plain boring text in your item description section, you now have the
option of having an entirely designed listing with a custom listing template, designed to suit
your requirements.
What you get?
With the eBay design base package at Dzine-Hub, what you would get is –
1. An eBay store design completely installed and integrated on your store. We would set
this up from scratch on your store, the functionality of which would not change a
single bit.
2. A custom listing template design submitted to you as a template file to use with your
listings, so that they may appear designed in eBay’s item description section.
There are “add-on” features that you can add to your package depending on your requirements.
Our designed templates are compatible with major selling tool applications like Inkfrog, Auctiva,
ChannelAdvisor, eSellerPro, TurboLister, Blackthorne, Linnworks, etc. If you are using one of
these seller applications, we can customise your template to work on the respective seller tool.
Why you need an eBay design?
Our designs focus on three basic factors –
Branding – A strong brand is invaluable as the battle for customers on the eBay market increases
by day. Time taken to create a brand, and then market that effectively is time well spent.
Branding increases your credibility with the customer & concretes user loyalty. A unique high
quality design helps in effective branding.
tamebay
eBay & eCommerce Tools & Services Guide 2012
Interface – A bad design interface can discourage a potential customer from making a purchase
owing to the fact that the navigation is not too simple. A good interface can put the customer at
ease, with navigation made easy between store pages and other information. Our store designs
are not just good looking, we create a good navigation interface to make your eBay store more
customer-centric.
Cross-Promotion - Another way of increasing sales / conversions is cross-promotion - let the
customer know what you feel might be of interest to them apart from the primary area of focus.
Creative banners and well designed promotion category boxes can communicate with the
customer more effectively.
Why Dzine-Hub?
Here are some of the reasons we have 500+ satisfied clients selling on eBay with our
professional designs –
1. Quality – At Dzine-Hub, we have a team of experienced designers who spend time on
each project assessing the best possible layouts and designs according to your
requirements. A top quality design can encourage a sale, while an amateur design can
do otherwise.
2. Service – We offer unlimited revisions on the design, something nobody else in the
business would offer. And why? Your acceptance of a design that is simply perfect for
you is of paramount importance to us – we do not stop revising the design until you are
completely satisfied.
We assign each client a dedicated project manager to liaise with during the entire
course of the project. All your project related queries will be answered promptly by
your project manager who is available on email, phone and Skype.
3. Speed - Time is money - we value your time! All your revisions during the project
phase would be efficiently handled within 24-36 hours on business working days, with
emails answered within the said time-frame. Our average time duration on an eBay
design project is about 7-12 working days.
4. Pricing – Given the quality, service, speed and efficiency in our work - our price is a
steal! If you do your homework on this front, you will find that choosing Dzine-Hub to
design your eBay store is a no-brainer! And here’s the cherry on top – we have NO re
curring fees associated with our eBay design project.

Back office automation – streamlining the entire eCommerce operation
Integration with external systems
tamebay
eBay & eCommerce Tools & Services Guide 2012
With eSellerPro, online retailers have the ability to integrate eSellerPro with existing legacy
systems that are in place. This can be accommodated through a variety of mechanisms
including:

• Flat file exchange
• eSellerPro API
Typical integrations will automate inventory imports, sales order exports, shipping information
and integration to fulfilment centres.
Automated supplier feeds and drop ship suppliers
If an online retailer is looking to increase its inventory, eSellerPro can automate the integration
with suppliers it chooses (depending on the technology available). This will allow the retailer
to increase its addressable market, at a very low risk. This can be set-up for drop ship suppliers
and for Just In Time (JIT) suppliers. Retailers can also set-up automated pricing rules for these
suppliers. For example, per cent markups based on their cost price to the retailer. With this
whole process being automated, it means retailers are able to fulfil sales without the burden of
carrying the stock.
Automated PO
Online retailers can set-up flexible rules in the system that will automate purchase orders to
their suppliers, based on order trigger points which can be configured by the retailer.
Flexible marketplace inventory management
Online retailers can set-up different rules for different products or different quantities available
for products. For example, when an automated feed is taken from a supplier, a retailer can set
up different listing rules depending on the inventory a supplier has available.
A retailer can create very granular listing rules depending on the product, the suppliers or the
marketplaces.
Flexible pricing management
Pricing rules can be automated depending on a retailers’ requirements. Online retailers can set
different sales prices for different seller IDs across different marketplaces.
Warehouse management
With built-in warehouse management, one or more warehouses in one or multiple locations or
countries can be mapped for immediate visibility of stock by quantity and location. Supplier
management offers various levels of control, from buying lists of stock below on-hand thresholds
through to fully automated reordering, including auto-fax or email of the PO.
By automating all the manual tasks within the business, it gives retailers more time to
concentrate on serving customers and enhancing profitability.
tamebay
eBay & eCommerce Tools & Services Guide 2012
Key Features of eSellerPro’s back office automation tool include:
• Returns management
• Supplier management
• Purchase order production and automation

Sales order processing – matching orders and payments automatically
By consolidating all orders across multiple sales channels and seller IDs in a single view,
eSellerPro enables batch processing of orders from a single view.
Order processing can also be fully integrated with retailers chosen courier partner system, so
that tasks such as label production and customer notification of tracking numbers can be
automated.
With all customer service information in one place, retailers can search for a transaction by
order number, invoice number, name or postcode. eSellerPro’s solution then shows every detail,
from product description and order date, to payment and shipping information, along with a full
audit trail of all the order events includes user IDs for the staff who created the entries.

Key features of eSellerPro’s sales order processing tool include:
• One-button batch processing

creation, listing management and customer service. Retailers can benefit from a fixed set-up
cost and low ongoing management fee structure which ensures a cost-effective launch of a

Adapting to the mobile world – eSellerPro’s mShop solution
Over the past 12 months, there has been a noticable increase in interest in mCommerce, with
demand looking to sky-rocket over the next year. The creation of mobile optimised sites and
mobile shopping apps are giving consumers easier access to their favourite high street stores
when on the move. Every company that has a multi-channel strategy in place should also be
embracing mCommerce. Businesses should see mobile websites as an extension to their existing
site, and it is important that these are optimised to allow a smooth, intuitive user experience.
Consumers are increasingly looking to shop on the move via mobile enabled devices, and
retailers are now more aware of the benefits mCommerce can bring. eSellerPro’s mShop
solution is a great way for retailers to capitalise on this growing market. Mobile shopping is only
going to continue to increase in popularity and the mShop solution is just the first step in
supporting retailers in this journey.
mShop is a product that allows retailers to create simplified mobile websites, giving shoppers a
quick and stress-free mobile shopping experience.
mShop can either be delivered as a stand-alone solution without the requirements for a primary
eSellerPro website service, or it can be integrated with the retailer’s main website. mShop also
offers retailers its own stock control options so that if a retailer requires, it will be able to
display items on the mShop that may not display on the primary website store or vice-versa.
tamebay
eBay & eCommerce Tools & Services Guide 2012
mShop is flexible in terms of design and feel and retailers can include their own customised
branding within the design to ensure consistency for customers who use both standard and
mobile sites. With an easy set up process, an mShop site can be designed, created and
operational in under two weeks, and with full PayPal integration, customers can easily make
purchases securely via a mobile device.

that offers us a higher net return - costs are a lot lower than traditional marketplaces. I
believe Flubit offers huge potential for multi-channel merchants, so deciding to integrate
with them from the very beginning was an easy decision and aligned with our strategy of
keeping Luzern at the cutting edge of e-commerce solutions.”
Patrick Sherlock, Director, Luzern Solutions (luzernsolutions.com)
Flubit: The Closed Marketplace
Flubit is the selling channel that increases your chances of making the sale: the perfect
complimentary channel for eBay Powersellers.
We simply ask our users one question: are you ready to buy? If the answer is yes, they are taken
on a unique e-commerce journey where they “Demand a Deal” for the product they want. No
product browsing or searching. If you stock this product, Flubit generates that user a bespoke,
private deal on your behalf. This process has resulted in a 72% demand-to-purchase conversion
rate.
Our innovative fee structure makes this all possible: it is fluid and responsive, and provides your
customers with the best price on the market, while never eating into your margins.

There’s a growing body of frugal online shoppers who are only loyal to getting the best price.
‘Scan and scram’ is becoming the norm. With product search and price comparison services
reaching saturation point, Flubit focuses solely on winning the purchase - for you. We give our
merchants a safety net for catching customers they could have otherwise missed out on.

Before you buy it, Flubit!
®
This simple message is why we win the user.
...here’s why it works:
• Flubit is the e-commerce concierge service, not a typical marketplace with product
listings.
• Our system automatically generates deals for the products our users demand.
• The time limit and pricing of each deal varies, and is bespoke for each user.
• These deal variables are determined by algorithms that assess the buying habits of
each user.
• And it’s a better price than any they’ve already found…
…this is why we had 29% repeat customers in our last beta month
“Tell us what you want to buy. We’ll find you the best price from one of our
retailers, and send you a bespoke, private deal on their behalf.”
The simple consumer experience, Flubit.com
...and here’s how you fit in:

Our API has been designed to replicate the functions of more traditional marketplaces to
ensure integration is straightforward and efficient.
We might not be a typical marketplace on the front-end, but behind the scenes it will feel like
we are. You simply feed us the same inventory data you would to other marketplaces. This
means when we offer a user a customised deal for one of your products, it will be accompanied
by all the product descriptions and images that they would expect to see before going through
with a purchase.
So integrating with Flubit is almost identical to other platforms
Via our API feed, your products, prices and stock levels will already be in our database. If a user
Demands a Deal on a product you stock, we have instant allocation access and our process
begins.
A sale on Flubit will appear in your system in the same way as a sale made on any other
marketplace.
Orders, inventory and stock allocation can be captured or fed via API, XML feed or FTP.

eBay & eCommerce Tools & Services Guide 2012
A channel fee structure that makes it all possible
We’re proud to have ripped up the channel fee rulebook. Our fee structure enables us to push
bespoke prices to individual users without affecting your margins. It gives us the flexibility to
make more sales for you, more often - and give more back to you.
• Our partners love it, because they’ll often achieve a higher net return from a sale than
on their other selling channels.
• Tiered structure: we reward merchants who assist us in creating a trusted buying
environment, i.e. offering fantastic prices and impeccable customer service.
• All transactions on Flubit are made via PayPal, so you don’t need to worry about ad
justing to a higher payment processing fee - and payment is made instantly to you
upon dispatch.
• No setup, subscription or listing fees.
Our journey
Flubit Beta went live in August 2011. Our aim was to spend 12 months experimenting with
different ‘point of sale techniques’ in a live environment to refine our core offering. This
involved running tests with a limited number of merchants and a restricted user base. We
measured and compared the effects of different ways of selling to the consumer (group deals,
flash sales, vouchers, etc.) and within a few months we’d discovered the Demand a Deal buying
journey. The results were beyond our expectations: a 72% demand-to-purchase conversion rate
over the last 3 months.

Visit Flubit.com to see these tests in progress. Meanwhile, we’ll be putting the finishing touches
to our API, UI and back-end, while integrating with merchants and channel management solution
companies as part of our pre-launch integration programme. The full site will launch during late
2012, whereupon market presence and emphatic conversion rates will define us. Our significant
marketing war-chest will fund substantial online and offline user acquisition and education
campaigns.
Who we want to work with at Flubit.com
We are looking for multi-channel merchants, online retailers and channel management solution
companies who are at the forefront of innovation, and want to redefine the online shopping
experience.
If you agree with the following, we want to work with you:
P Traditional marketplaces are becoming stale and/or saturated
P Consumers want to be able to influence the price they pay for something
P Traditional marketplaces take too much commission
P You want to dominate a new channel before your competition get there
P The market is ready for an innovative and integrated new selling channel

If you want to learn more about selling on Flubit, and how to join our pre-launch integration
programme, then get in touch to arrange a free compatibility consultation.
