Why Velocity is a perfect solution for Affinity Groups

We all know that the marketplace model is here to stay and is rapidly growing right now. You see it in everything from Amazon to eBay to Etsy, and you’ve probably thought to yourself: “I want a piece of that.”

Total control, total simplicity

The members and supporters of your club or affinity group would love to buy their everyday products from ‘you’ in the full knowledge that your organisation will directly benefit from them doing so. They log on to ‘your’ Marketplace, buy a product they want at market price or below, from a retailer they know, pay Velocity Marketplaces who pay the retailer and send you your ‘sales commission’ every month.

If you’re a Football Club, Rugby Club, Professional Organisation, Support Group or any type of organisation where you have a loyal following you could benefit from launching a marketplace for your supporters or members. Each time a member of your affinity group buys from your marketplace they can do so in the knowledge that the affinity group is benefitting from the profit generated by the sale. This can be very powerful and allow your members to give to your affinity group whilst going about their daily purchases. You can also cross fertilise offers from your group to the marketplace and vice-verse to create a win-win scenario for your members and you organisation.

You have no product risk, no liability, no legal exposure to the contract between the buyer and seller and no order processing, fulfilment or customer service worries.

Everybody wins!
