UK online marketplace Visit website

OnBuy was founded by Cas Paton in 2016, based on the idea of an Amazon alternative and open marketplace. Since then, OnBuy has experienced rapid growth – the past two years, the UK company have grown 600 percent consecutively.

OnBuy doesn’t compete with OnBuy sellers

OnBuy never has and never will compete with its own sellers, with no products to sell and distribute themselves. “The ambition is to help sellers grow their business in the fairest way possible. Taking much of the effort away from the sellers when promoting and marketing products, commission rates are low which means lower costs for buyers”, the company explains.

In over 40 countries by the end of 2020

With 51 current members of staff and rapidly increasing job vacancies, OnBuy plans to be trading in over 40 countries by the end of 2020 on top of their current market activity in the United Kingdom. The vision thereafter is to be trading in over 140 countries by the end of 2023.
