I love subscription boxes. They’re a fun way to treat yourself to a surprise gift every month. But sometimes, one of your monthly mystery boxes has an item that isn’t something that’s your style. I’ve gotten some nail colors or beauty products that weren’t quite the right color or suited for my skin type. Usually I’ve tossed those items in a box, re-gifted them to someone else, and am planning on donating several items as well. Find Subscription Boxes recently launched a new online marketplace just for subscription box customers and fans – The Aftermarket at Find Subscription Boxes.
The Aftermarket at Find Subscription Boxes is a new place where you can set-up a free online store to sell or auction your unwanted subscription box items. It’s easy to get started. Just sign-up for a free account at The Aftermarket at Find Subscription Boxes to get started. After you’ve verified your account and logged in, you can apply to become a seller and choose your new online store name. Once you’re approved, you’ll get access to a feature-packed Vendor Dashboard where you can set-up your store and start adding some of your subscription box items to the marketplace. Find Subscription Boxes has a Support Portal and a Seller Getting Started Guide to help get your store up and running.
While other marketplaces charge listing fees and commissions, The Aftermarket only charges an 8% commission when a sale is made. That means you can list an item for sale on The Aftermarket for free and you don’t pay the commission until someone buys the item from your store. Sellers are automatically paid via PayPal or Stripe and emails are automatically sent to both customers and Sellers. You can even add the tracking number to your store order to let your customer know when their order has shipped.
A “hidden gem” of The Aftermarket at Find Subscription Boxes is the subscription box community. All The Aftermarket members (both sellers and non-sellers) get a free online profile where they can connect with other subscription box fans, upload photos, and even create their own blog. There’s also a Community Wall where members can share updates to the entire community.
As a subscription box fan, I can’t wait to see the products that other people offer on their stores. I’m often looking for some of my favorite items from past boxes and this will be a great one-stop shop for subscription box products. The Aftermarket lets you browse subscription box items by category or even shop by subscription box so you can find the best deals on collectibles, exclusive and other products from specific monthly boxes.
