Sell On Rakuten - Inventory Sync and Order Management

What is Rakuten?

Rakuten.com, formerly called Buy.com, makes it simple for sellers to become part of the Rakuten Marketplace and to start selling more. Rakuten was founded in 1999 and was primarily a marketplace intended for Japanese sellers and customers only, but now its one of the major worldwide online marketplaces. After learning the Rakuten basics, sellers will need to have a valid credit card, tax ID, and checking account information for payments.


Why Sell On Rakuten?

  • Different customers. People who buy at Rakuten are usually not the same ones who shop other marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay, Newegg, Overstock, Sears, etc. Such loyalty might bring long-term relationships through customer satisfaction.
  • The marketplace is not a competitor. On Rakuten, you will only compete with other merchants. The marketplace doesnt sell anything by itself and encourages its users to compete not only by price, but by their hospitality and customer service as well.
  • Selling more with higher prices. The above mentioned type of competing is important to the customers as much as to the marketplace, so if you shine with your ability to please the customers, theyll buy from you again even if your price is slightly higher.
