Buy.com Executives Talk about Third-Party Marketplace

Mon Nov 5 2012 23:47:41
Buy.com opened its site to third-party sellers beginning in 2009 and now has 5,000 active sellers on the Buy.com Marketplace - which now exceeds the first-party distribution business. Buy.com's Chief Marketing & Operating Officer Bernard Luthi and Senior Director of Merchant Acquisition and Business Development George Chang joined EcommerceBytes to talk about the program and what qualifications sellers must meet in order to sell on Buy, along with information about its fulfillment program, which categories are open to third-party sellers, and the hot categories for third-party sellers. They also tackled industry issues, such as same-day delivery and free shipping. NOTE: If you have a problem listening to the podcast using the FireFox browser, go to Tools, Options, click on "applications" and change Mp3 sound formats to Windows Media player (click on Quick Time in the right column to change). If that doesn't work, use another browser such as Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. Run Time: 20:10
