3P Merchant Options Continue to Grow.

NewEgg.com is the latest retailer to open their doors to 3P Merchants with the launch of the NewEggMall.com.

Here are a list of Retailers who allow 3P Merchants to sell on their platform:
  • Amazon.com
  • Overstock.com
  • Buy.com
  • NewEggMarket.com
  • Play.com in the UK

Who will be next? Will BestBuy.com open its doors? Or will the new Gap Marketplace be the next store to welcome 3P merchants. Perhaps, Zappos will take a shot at this new business model.

As, I have said before, 2008 is the Year of the #P Seller and it looks like 2009 will be just as good.

Notice, I didn't mention eBay, because they are not a retailer. They are a pure-play marketplace and will get lost in the shuffle.

Hey Randy,

Not my usual subject-matter to comment on, but one thing did immediately occur to me reading your last couple of posts regarding 3P sellers.

Your list is entirely composed of dot-com companies (do any of them have a physical presence anywhere?), while the companies you're looking for, Best Buy and Gap, are more traditional companies with an online presence.

Wouldn't it be a somewhat revolutionary move for either of them, or another such company, to run with this idea?

While the companies on your list are all expanding their online presence by opening the doors to 3P sellers, wouldn't BestBuy and especially the Gap, be compromising their brand to do so?

Or at least wouldn't that be their initial reaction until some trailblazing company gets it to work for them first?
