Volo now has a full integration to the Rakuten UK marketplace. This will give customers another channel in which to increase the visibility of their existing products.
Rakuten has replaced Play.com as a brand new marketplace with a great new look. Play.com had become the 3rd largest marketplace in the UK, and with the transition to this Japanese giant in multi channel ecommerce it’s expected to go from strength to strength.
Rakuten is looking to speed up its global expansion and become a pioneer in a ‘new era of borderless retail’. This has kicked off with the creation of the UK marketplace.
To achieve the borderless retail experience they have created a single international platform that will see other Rakuten channels join over time. This will improve the ability to list globally and buy from sellers that haven’t been accessible before. It will also give you access to Rakuten’s vast portfolio of internet services. All of which will improve both the buyers and sellers shopping experience, a win win for everyone!
To get started first you’ll need to contact Rakuten who will begin the process of creating an account for you. Next give your Volo Account Manager a call and they will walk you through the process from our side.
