A break in ‘TheMarket’ with NZ’s new online shopping platform
Looking to take your online store a step further? Starshipit has partnered with NZ’s fastest growing online marketplace, TheMarket. Find out how you can plug & play and convert more sales this holiday season!
New Zealand’s version of Amazon
Launched in August this year by The Warehouse Group, TheMarket is New Zealand’s own lifestyle-focused online shopping experience. Similar to eCommerce sites like The Iconic, it features a curated range of new products from international, local, and niche brands.
TheMarket has a wide range of products including fashion, toys, electronics, books, sports items, and designer goods. Currently, offering 1500+ brands with new additions every week, it aims to create a shopping ecosystem like Amazon and be the first place people go to when they want to buy. TheMarket offers interest-free instalment payments via PartPay, tracked shipping and free returns.
As the first big local competitor to international eCommerce giants like ASOS, The Iconic, and Amazon, TheMarket has rattled New Zealand’s traditional retail market.
“TheMarket is a curated lifestyle marketplace with a broad range of categories from over 1700 international, local and niche brands including Cotton On, Città, Toyco, Snappy and many more to come. With shopping guides and articles galore, customers will gain the inspiration they need to make their next online purchase a goodie, plus there is the added convenience of being able to click and collect at Marketpoint locations across NZ.
Over the coming months, we’ll see TheMarket shape up to be a strong contender for the Christmas/Cyber trading period as we venture into new categories, roll out over 100 more MarketPoint locations, and launch our subscription programme which will allow customers to enjoy free shipping just in time for the holiday season.”
