Steals.com rolls out marketplace to improve online listings


US-based online marketplace Steals.com has launched the Steals.com platform, which is aimed at serving sellers and buyers.

Since January, the company has completed onboarding more than 300 new sellers.

Steals.com CEO Rett Clevenger said: "This is a huge change to the Steals.com business model, which primarily focused on one deal a day. Now, in addition to the daily deal, customers can search for and discover thousands of quality products at a discount."

Based on certain criteria, the online marketplace gives a free onboarding training session to sellers to enable them to have their products listed for sale within 24h.

"This is a huge change to the Steals.com business model, which primarily focused on one deal a day."

Through a full integration with XPSShip.com, the company enables sellers to print postage with one click.

The sellers are also integrated with Channel Advisor, which provides automation services for uploading products, adding offers and processing orders.

Steals.com president and founder Jana Francis said: "Many of the sellers we've worked with so far are thrilled to increase their order volume through Steals.com's marketplace, and find that because of the niche focus and emphasis on discovery, they can sell more through Steals.com than other online channels."

The company is currently looking for funding from angel investors to enhance its growth.
