A marketplace is a powerful, proven way for your business to generate new revenue. An online marketplace is a modern, easy way for you to establish new relationships with customers, giving them access to an expanded product range, and giving you access to new income streams.
Like any project, there are many ways of creating a marketplace. You can write code from scratch, or you can use a ready-made solution that will help you start selling quickly and easily.
The cost-of-living crisis has made it even harder for charities to find regular donors and to keep those they already have. Acquisition costs are increasing as are the day-to-day costs of running a charity. Churn within regular donor’s subscriptions costs money to manage and there is a need for a method of appealing to a wider sociodemographic group of donors.
Launching a Velocity Marketplace for your charity addresses many of these issues: Offering mainstream, new products across all categories allows existing supporters AND people who would not normally donate to your charity the opportunity to buy the products they want, when they want them in the knowledge that the profit from the sale directly benefits your charity.
This creates a new win-win scenario for the customer and the charity across a much wider and diverse product assortment than can ever be achieved through traditional charity shops. Put simply, if one of your supporters wants to buy a pair of Levi jeans, why not buy them from your Marketplace at the same price as elsewhere and know that in doing so, they will be indirectly donating to you via Velocity.
If you are a media owner whether it be TV media, Print, Bill Board’s or a high traffic web offering or a trusted brand then launching your own Marketplace gives you the opportunity to create a new revenue stream driven by your existing media assets.
Your Velocity white labelled Marketplace fit’s seamlessly within your current web infrastructure allowing your customers to simply discover your wide range of products. Employing your own media assets via adverts, display ads and email are other ways of driving traffic to your marketplace along with other sources of traffic such as affiliates and Google Shopping. Additionally, you can cross fertilise your existing services or products with incentives within your marketplace or vice versa to either drive traffic to your own product or service or drive traffic from internal incentives to your Marketplace.
As a Brand owners you can leverage your own Brands assets and internet traffic by launching a selective “friends of” Marketplace seamlessly into your existing Ecom. You may decide to charge other brands that compliment yours for their concessions within your Marketplace.
By range extending in this way you’ll increase traffic to your own Ecom by appealing to a wider audience, increase new customers and in turn increase your revenues. You’ll also generate a valuable data set about customer habits that buy outside your brand that are closely aligned with your existing offering.
As an established retailer in your sector Velocity Marketplaces can offer you an immediate SKU extension within your chosen category or a complete enterprise level fully managed marketplace that you can launch straight away. Either of these approaches will immediately generate new revenue’s for you and will give you a valuable data set around your customers shopping habits.
Dwell times will lengthen as shoppers generally like to complete their shopping on one website were possible, so by having a wider product range you’ll increase your average basket size and your relevancy to your customers. This promotes a higher returning traffic rate and in turn overall sales.
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.
“Your shop, your Branding, Velocity manages everything else! You get paid commission every month.”

Co-Founder and CEO
I’ve watched the Marketplace industry grow over the past 15 years and felt that with the right application of technology there are many companies, charities and affinity groups who could significantly benefit from having their own Marketplace.
After years of running traditional business’s I felt the timing was right to found Velocity Marketplaces and bring the technical tools to the mass market that, until now, have only been enjoyed by the elite few.
Co-Founder and COO
FCIM(Chartered Marketer) FIDM- cupboard full of T-shirts. I have worked in Direct Marketing since its infancy and remain a dedicated data disciple. I have built, restructured or run businesses on 5 continents, learning all the time.
Marketplaces are now in their infancy and I am excited about embarking upon the next learning journey to build, from scratch, a first-class enterprise with a first-class team in the fastest growing e-commerce sector.
Co-Founder and CTO
Having both a sales and technical background, I can see the typical challenges of launching a marketplace. You either have the IT resource and knowhow, or the product supply lines, but rarely both.
With marketplaces becoming a growing world-wide trend, being able to put together an expandable retail platform which can be utilised by so many, including small to enterprise organisations, and also the charity sector, is a very exciting journey.
Non Executive Director
Having worked on multiple retail product aggregation platforms and marketplace projects, big and small, I know what works and what doesn’t. At Velocity we have created a winning formula to bring marketplaces to the masses enabling virtually any business to access global marketplace functionality.
I literally jumped at the opportunity to offer my insights and experience to such an accomplished team of retail and technical luminaries.
Head of Product Experience
Excited to have created this unique platform, which allows charities and businesses alike to create extra revenue to help their causes. Love that we are helping people raise funds by making our tools easier to use and more effective.

We are committed to building the easiest marketplace integration out there. Building a platform that can support many businesses, and feed their websites millions of products using the latest, and most secure coding techniques is both a fantastic and challenging role.
