OnBuy has discounted more than £50 million in prices in an exclusive one-day sale event for Black Friday. The marketplace has discounted every single product so buyers can enjoy guaranteed savings of up to 75% at no additional cost to sellers – the savings come straight out of OnBuy’s pocket!
Shoppers can save on products from their favourite brands across thousands of categories, from beauty, home and garden essentials to tech, toys and baby supplies. OnBuy is a true marketplace, not a retailer, so every order placed supports the small, medium and large businesses that sell with OnBuy. The exclusive discounts across the website will be live for 24 hours only, from 00.01 to 23.59 on Friday 27th November.
Cas Paton, OnBuy’s founder and CEO, commented: “For us, Black Friday is another chance to show our sellers how committed we are to seeing them succeed. We’ve seen a record number of sellers join us this year, with our seller base increasing by 10% every month, so we wanted to pull out all the stops this Black Friday to make it their best yet.
“We know other marketplaces only push their sellers to drop prices – at OnBuy, we feel that it’s our duty to partake and drive down costs for consumers, allowing our retailers to have even stronger pricing for this special sales day. We’ve discounted every single product on our marketplace by waiving a portion of our selling fees and taking this amount off the product price, so buyers can save on everything at no extra cost to the independent sellers we support.
“Not only that, but we’ve bolstered our massive price drop with a huge Black Friday TV campaign on ITV and YouTube as well as a fleet of billboards and out of home media across the UK to increase consumer awareness and drive even more sales for our sellers.
“In doing this, we’re not only giving our sellers the opportunity to have the best possible Black Friday at no additional cost, but we’ve created the biggest discount day seen in retail this year. We’ve seen plenty of incredible offers from our sellers already, so with our discounts applied, buyers can enjoy truly fantastic savings.
“We believe in doing things differently at OnBuy, and our sale underpins our commitment to providing a fairer, more transparent and ethical marketplace for buyers and sellers. We predict this will be the biggest sales day on OnBuy ever. We made over £1 million in sales solely for our sellers last year – this year, we’ll smash that record!”
