OnBuy.com is partnering with Hermes, to provide simple and secure shipping from a known and trusted service. Vendors can rest assured that their products will reach the customer on time, in safe hands and potentially at lower cost, while customers can shop in confidence that their products will be handled with the care that they deserve.
Not only will this partnership help OnBuy sellers grow in the UK but, through its strong international network, it will also be an essential vehicle for merchants’ growth as OnBuy expands into global markets over the coming years.
Mark Lister, CCO of OnBuy said, “Working with a household name like Hermes will be pivotal as we continue to grow and lay down the gauntlet to the industry giants who currently dominate the field. Learnings from the last two years show that the sector will continue to grow, with demand increasing more than ever. At OnBuy it is vital that we can facilitate this demand with a seamless and trusted end to end service – which is made ever stronger with this partnership.
Claire Phelan, Head of E-commerce Partnerships at Hermes UK, said: “There has been significant upward trend in the volume of parcels entering the Hermes network from marketplaces such as OnBuy. The growth has been accelerated through the pandemic as a result of changing consumer shopping preferences and an increase in start-up businesses and merchants choosing to sell through marketplaces. We are making it easier, cheaper and more convenient for these businesses using marketplaces to access the Hermes services whilst helping them to save time and money.”
