ASOS is the granddaddy of all fashion marketplaces. With thousands of brands and a customer base in the millions, it’s the ultimate way for you to increase your sales and gain more exposure for your brand.
Aside from their unrivalled range of products, ASOS’s success comes down to their emphasis on customer experience. With free delivery and returns, pay-later checkout options iPaaS Vendors and an intelligent ‘Fit Assistant’, they strive to give customers an incredible shopping experience. And this great customer service feeds back into your brand – if a customer is happy with your product and the service they received, they associate that feeling with your brand.
Selling through ASOS also gives your brand a seal of approval, helping to improve your authority and awareness. If your products are sold alongside big-name brand like Nike and Calvin Klein, you won’t have the same kind of buyer hesitation that you’d experience when selling to new customers on your own site.
ASOS regularly look to invest in growing and independent brands, making it a great place to accelerate your business growth. Through ASOS Marketplace, a separate ecommerce platform launched by ASOS in 2010, emerging boutiques and designers can sell their products and gather an audience. Buyers at ASOS regularly trawl the ASOS Marketplace site for up-and-coming brands to invest in, so it’s a good place to start if you’ve not yet got the status to sell on the main platform.
Best for: Global brands and retailers.
