A few years ago, Fancy switched from being a traditional e-commerce retailer to a marketplace. As a marketplace, we no longer have to focus on buying and selling products ourselves. Instead, when a sale takes place on Fancy, the product is drop-shipped by one of our vendors and we receive a percentage commission on the transaction. Our customer finds the product she wants, our vendors open up a new risk-free sales channel and Fancy profits without holding inventory. We love this business model and want to help you operate your own marketplace.
FANCY MARKETPLACE AS A SERVICE
Fancy is known for our “experience in experience” in e-commerce. We have partnered with the best consumer internet brands to deliver cutting edge e-commerce experiences to both consumers and vendors including Apple, Google, Facebook and Twitter. Many companies try and fail to build marketplaces because their core competency is selling goods, not building tech. Fancy has spent 10 years developing a world-class marketplace platform. Let us do it for you!
CASE STUDY: GEAR.COM
After an early investment from Amazon in the ‘90s, Gear.com went on to become one of the largest and most well-regarded review sites for outdoor gear. Thanks to a strategic deployment of Fancy’s marketplace solutions, Gear.com has recently converted into one of the world’s premier e-commerce shopping sites focused squarely on highly-curated collections of premium outdoor gear brands such as Black Diamond, Duckworth and Peak Design.
