Presumably with Marrkt you ship them the items, then they vet, photograph, write the ad and handle onward shipping? Which explains their big cut?

It does feel like there must be a way of streamlining the process whilst keeping the listings sharp and giving an authenticity guarantee.

I'm thinking the business could send the seller a portable photography studio to use for a few days and a nice branded box to send the goods in.

Marrkt just arrived in an unbranded bag.

They don’t really write much of a description. And sometimes it’s just copied from the internet and isn’t even true to the item for sale sometimes.

And surely taking those white background photos can’t be that hard front and back of an item. Probably a setting on the iPhone to do that.

Shipping on the item the buyer pays and the seller pays to post it to them.

I say they got it easy. Someone take them down. Lol

As a seller you get postage to them for free from UK, as it should be.

I do think they miss an opportunity to do some better copy for the items and promote them more on that basis, or at least note things they can literally read off the label like made in Japan.

I think they take the postage off you when the item sells no?

Don't think so but could be mistaken. I have sent at least a couple boxes of items and they sent a shipping label so not sure how they could actually work out and charge the postage per item.

The invoice from the sales just says 'Marrkt fee' which I assume is the % banding of the price of each item with the sneaky 2% transaction fee.
