ChannelGabber integrates with OnBuy marketplace
June 28, 2023
ChannelGrabber is pleased to announce that we now integrate with OnBuy, one of the largest UK marketplaces for ecommerce businesses and sellers.
Why should you sell on OnBuy?
OnBuy is one of the UK’s largest online marketplaces, on a mission to change ecommerce for the better. They provide a simple and transparent sales platform that connects every seller with millions of engaged customers, with over 35 million products listed on the site.
Its defining point of difference, compared to its rivals, is its high trust with consumers and sellers alike, reflected in its ‘Excellent’ rating on Trustpilot. Unlike other marketplaces, OnBuy does not sell its products or seek to compete with retailers selling on its platform. Instead, the marketplace is committed to fair practice, quality service, and partnering with their sellers in a way that is clear, straightforward, and has a positive impact on their sales.
Recently ranked as Europe’s fastest-growing ecommerce company by the Financial Times, OnBuy has over 7,000 active sellers already leveraging the platform. The established marketplace presents an attractive opportunity for businesses to generate additional sales from its ever-growing audience (without cannibalising from other channels), with clear, competitive fees that make selling on OnBuy fair and simple, for everyone.
OnBuy is highly regarded for its support, with sellers having access to personal support from their friendly, UK-based team. Many sellers have reported a positive experience with the marketplace’s support team, who go above and beyond expectations, helping to drive a triple-digit uplift in sales.

Why did ChannelGrabber pick OnBuy as the first integration of its revival?
James Carr, who has been leading the partnership effort on behalf of ChannelGrabber explains: “We have always found that OnBuy and ChannelGrabber share an entrepreneurial spirit, a desire to look at the current status quo and ask how can it be done better, what would need to be different, and how can this be simpler for both the online retailer and the end consumer. This mutual mindset was a natural attraction to igniting this relationship and has been reflected in the ease of our work together. Coupled with some very exciting plans that OnBuy is planning for 2023, we wanted to ensure we were in a position to allow our customers to leverage this brilliant marketplace.“
A welcoming aspect of OnBuy is the fact it is a catalogue-based system. This means each product is created with its own unique EAN/UPC/ISBN GTIN code that has to be registered with GS1. Once a product is created in OnBuy’s catalogue, multiple sellers can list the product within their Seller Control Panel. This resolves the need to have the same product listed on the OnBuy website hundreds of times.
