Following are the online marketplaces to fetch business from international buyers.   

7 Online Marketplaces

  • Amazon. 129 million UV. The big gorilla. A first-party seller that added third-party sellers with great success. Wide variety of products in all categories. Allows you to set up a store and products within strict rules. The customer is Amazon’s, not yours and that is strictly enforced. Offers Fulfillment by Amazon, which opens up Prime Rewards program and free shipping to third-party products. Amazon offers several monthly plans for merchant stores and charges commissions upwards to 25 percent, depending on the category.
  • eBay. 84 million UV. No first-party sales. All transactions brokered by eBay and fulfilled by third-party merchants. Options for “Buy It Now” or for traditional auctions. Fees structure is complex: subscription rates, insertion fees, and final value fees vary by plan. Easy-to-establish seller account. Wide variety of products and categories.
  • Walmart.com. 57 million UV. Yes, Walmart also has a third-party marketplace. But it is currently limited to less than a dozen authorized online retailers, including eBags, Tool King, and Wayfair. Hence, Walmart.com is not an open marketplace.
  • BestBuy.com. 22 million UV. A relative newcomer to marketplaces, BestBuy.com requires authorization and does not offer many details on its program to the public. However, it does offer many products — mostly electronics — not available in stores.
  • Sears.com. 21 million UV. In many ways, Sears copied Amazon. It is a first-party seller with marketplace stores. It has many products and categories, and many marketplace sellers. Sears charges a monthly fee for a merchant store; commission rates range from 7 to 20 percent. It also offers rewards to its customers as a competitive advantage over Amazon. The customer belongs to Sears, not the marketplace seller, with rules in place to prevent follow-up marketing. Sears also offers Fulfillment by Sears services.
  • Newegg. 3.4 million UV. A tech geek paradise where you can also buy a snowboard while you pick up a new hard drive. An approval process is required. Commission rates run from 8 to 14 percent. Many sellers report good success here, perhaps because the competition in niche products is much lower than other larger marketplaces.
  • Rakuten.com. 1.5 million UV. Formerly Buy.com, now owned by Rakuten, Japan’s largest ecommerce company. It allows merchants to customize their stores and product pages, and to conduct follow-up marketing to customers. Rakuten offers customer reward points of 1 percent of purchases. Store plans start at $33 per month, with commissions from 8 to 15 percent, plus a $.99 per item fee that is waived under certain plans and conditions. Sellers can make products available to the Japanese market with no additional charge. Some products also may be sold on BestBuy.com.
