Since Google products has changed paid version, it has opened opportunities for other channels and one of them is Fruugo. I had a chat with Elly from Fruggo yesterday. She explained that Fruugo has got 1 million page views per month in the UK . So if you are trying to roll across UK market its is a good start. The fact that 80% of the current Fruugo merchants sell overseas shows possibility to expand immediately to grow market out of UK. You will find below detailed information on Fruugo.
Fruugo is a unique worldwide marketplace, bringing many retailers from many countries all together in one site, with one simple, secure checkout. Fruugo is available to shoppers in 23 countries (and expanding!)so wherever in the world the shopper is, they see Fruugo in their own language, their own currency and can use recognised payment methods from their own country. Fruugo will significantly increase your exposure in the UK, Europe and beyond, and hopefully generate international and domestic orders that you would otherwise not get.
Fruugo’s No sale no fee policy means there are no upfront or monthly fees at all. When a sale is made you simply pay only 10% commission “all in” on the value of the goods (i.e. we do not charge commission on VAT or shipping). Fruugo takes the payment from the customer via our WorldPay systems, and the commission includes all payment processing, currency conversions and fraud checking fees.
