UK marketplace OnBuy has introduced a seller referral program that allows affiliates to earn 10% of OnBuy's revenue share for a year.

Introducing OnBuy Seller Referral - OnBuy
We’re excited to announce the release of our seller referral scheme, which will allow anyone to financially benefit from introducing sellers to our platform

Hot on the heels of our industry-first Cashback launch, we’re excited to announce the release of our first-of-a-kind seller referral scheme, which will allow anyone to financially benefit from introducing fantastic sellers to our platform.

And when we say ‘anyone’, we really mean anyone!

Having previously been reserved for industry affiliates only, we’re now opening our referral scheme to both businesses and individuals, regardless of whether they work within retail, are an agency, or simply have contacts in the industry.

Recommend a UK- or EU-based seller to OnBuy, and to thank you, we'll give you 10% of our revenue share on everything they sell in the first year!

That’s huge! Especially if you refer a larger retailer or distributor that turns over a high volume of sales!

The best part? There’s no limit to the amount of sellers you can refer!

All you have to do is fill in our online form, and we’ll email you a unique referral link to pass on to your contacts. You can send your link to as many retailers as you like, and it’s all fully discreet and confidential.

We’ve always wanted to prioritise the customer and seller experience on OnBuy, and with so many amazing benefits for our retailers to take advantage of, there’s never been a better time to join Europe’s fastest-growing eCommerce company!

As well as being able to access over 6 million engaged customers, our sellers can enjoy:

  • Direct payments, with no need for a PayPal account.
  • Quick and easy set-up times.
  • Hundreds of integrations.
  • Competitive fees, with clear, straightforward policies.
  • Help from our friendly, UK-based Support Team.

 CEO, Cas Paton, said:

We’ve always believed in being fair, and anyone who refers a seller to OnBuy deserves to be rewarded, especially at a time when the opportunity to earn any extra income, or extra revenue, will be gratefully received.

We’re committed to improving the customer experience across our site by continuing to attract verified sellers that provide even more choice, quality products and an elite level of service.

Sellers that we acquire because of a referral tend to be of a high standard and we would rather invest in incentivising people to recommend retailers they know and trust, than plough budget into indiscriminate lead-generation or agency fees.

After trialling a referral scheme for a few months, we saw huge success from the introduction of sellers and, in return, a lucrative benefit for the referrer. We’ve decided to drive this programme out far-and-wide, as an industry first seller referral programme.

The first individual or business to refer sellers to OnBuy are the first to get paid for the introduction! The race is on! And the commission lasts for 12 months! We already have referrals generating £10,000 of cash for each £1million of sales, being 10% of our revenue.

OnBuy prides itself on working with sellers and championing their success. We connect them with over 6 million engaged customers; offer fair policies and fees, real people who are here to help and we don’t sell anything ourselves, so they’ll never have to compete with us.

With loads of new initiatives to further improve our seller experience in the pipeline for 2023, this initiative is a win-win for all involved.
