The GCA Marketplace is a one-stop solution for small and or niche vendors needs – advertise and manage your product without the time and cost overhead of your own website – or in addition to as the case may be. We have an exhaustive feature set, a user-friendly interface, commission management and much more!
At this stage we are only accepting UK based vendors with a complementary product line:
Your Market place store can be customised to display your supplied banner and logo – after all we provide the pitch – you provide the product and brand!
Vendors, once approved, can upload their own products – we will initially upload the first 2 or 3 to assist with the on-boarding process unless otherwise agreed. Products will be approved by us for completeness before being released for sale. Vendors can also create and modify their own discount vouchers or coupons.
The marketplace is aimed at small vendors and is not intended to be a replacement ecommerce solution for larger businesses. Conservative inventories will be typically 10 to 15 items.
Commissions are set on either a revenue sharing by negotiated percentage of sale or a fixed fee per sale.
Commissions can be withdrawn once a minimum disbursal limit of fifty pounds is reached and after thirty days. We prefer to pay by bank transfer or Paypal for simplicity.
We do not request a subscription fee but will pass on payment gateway costs depending on the payment method used.
We are not VAT registered. All costs are shown as Gross inclusive of tax unless otherwise stated.
