Top UK Spreadshirt Sellers get Expanded Route-to-Market for Online Clothing Sales
London – 6 November 2014 – Spreadshirt’s top sellers in the UK are being handpicked to spotlight on the Amazon Marketplace, dramatically expanding their routes-to-market. Initial figures from the leading e-commerce platform for print-on-demand clothing and accessories, show that sellers whose products are offered on Amazon can double or triple their revenue.
On-trend and seasonal products on the Spreadshirt platform are chosen to be transferred to the Amazon UK marketplace, further extending sellers’ reach to their key customers and helping them interact on a much wider scale with their target audience. Top sellers in the UK are t-shirts which mark a special occasion, clothing which honours a sports team and anything with a funny slogans or image.
Spreadshirt CEO, Philip Rooke, comments “The Amazon marketplace offers our designers and partners an additional opportunity to be seen by millions of engaging customers. This is a natural progression in our multichannel offering that will strengthen our sellers’ links to customers and attract new ones and drive their businesses forward.”
“We think the rise of external marketplaces is a key trend and have set up a division to respond to it,” commented Philip Rooke, “eBay now offers B2C routes and other, previously industry-only players, are entering the consumer market. This diversification of sales channels can only benefit Spreadshirt and our sellers, so we’re making it an important part of our long-term strategy”.
The Spreadshirt platform connects millions of interesting ideas from businesses and individual to the millions of consumers searching for ideas that resonate with them. It provides multiple channels to bring ideas to life on clothing. These points of sale include 3rd party e-commerce marketplaces like Amazon, white label and social media shops, and countless other applications using Spreadshirt’s API.
