UK online marketplace OnBuy has reported incredible growth in their gardening supplies department with sales soaring by more than 6132 percent over the last three years.
OnBuy has seen various trends in the industry which they believe to have contributed towards the vast increase in department sales, including:
- Families and small groups choosing to socialise outdoors during the pandemic.
- Renewed interest in gardening as a hobby, particularly with people under 45.
- A new trend towards ‘green’ self-sufficiency, such as home-grown food and allotments.
- Better knowledge of the positive mental health effects of gardening and spending time in nature.
“With more shoppers turning to online coupled with our fresh and unique approach to eCommerce, we have seen a huge uplift in sales in our gardening supplies department. OnBuy is now one of the leading home eCommerce platforms in the UK with visitors to the site increasing daily.” said Cas Paton, CEO of OnBuy.
The UK marketplace has recently been recognised by the Financial Times as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe, affirming its position as a leading brand and UK eCommerce player. OnBuy now see’s hundreds of thousands of shoppers visiting the site daily all searching for their next purchase.
“Our meteoric growth is thanks to our proposition that champions transparency and collaboration. As more retailers are becoming increasingly tired of the negative and competitive experience in the industry, we have fast become a trusted alternative – providing a fair and transparent marketplace that vows never to retail any products, never to launch an ‘own’ brand range, and compete with retailers.
As a relatively new marketplace, there are still so many opportunities for sellers, brands and retailers to join OnBuy and now is the best time for sellers of gardening supplies to get listed to benefit from incremental sales in 2023,” Paton concluded.
