Why not apply to Sell With Us at RalphBentley.co.uk?
IS IT FREE TO APPLY?
Yes. It's completely FREE to apply for a Sellers Account. We cannot guarantee that everyone will be accepted to sell via our website and it may take some time for your products to appear online but you've got to be in it to win it, right?
WILL YOU ADVERTISE MY PRODUCT?
Yes. Your products will be included in our product feeds for affiliates, paid search and display marketing online. We will also, from time to time, include your products in email marketing to our subscribers or in social media posts on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. We may also include your official @ tag on various social media platforms or retweet posts of interest we find on your social media accounts. Sharing your social posts with our followers can help grow your brand!
WHAT ARE THE COSTS?
There are NO UPFRONT COSTS when you sell with Ralph Bentley.
We charge a small commission for each sale and deduct this before we make a payment to you. You'll find that our commission is less than some other market places and much easier to work out off the top of your head - no difficult mind arithmetic!
DO I NEED INSURANCE?
Yes. It's important for you to have Product Liability Insurance when selling your products online or in-store, even if we are dispatching the items for you. As a manufacturer, you will need to provide proof of insurance cover. Don't panic though, it doesn't cost much and insurance specialists such as InSync Insurance can put together a package that's suitable for your products and liabilities. We are unable to offer any support regarding the levels of cover you require but suggest you call an insurance specialist for advice.
Remember, we will need to see a copy of your liability insurance before stocking or advertising your products. We cannot be held responsible for you or your company not having the correct level of cover in place and ask that you seek professional advice before committing to selling your products to the public.
HOW DOES UK TAX AND VAT WORK?
You are responsible for your own tax affairs. We cannot give any support on this subject but we suggest that you seek the advice of a professional company or organisation before committing to selling your products online. Ensuring you are set up correctly as a sole trader, partnership or Limited Company is vitally important to your future success, whether you sell at Ralph Bentley or not.
