Hot deals on the global marketplace
The installation and operation of your own online shop is not worthwhile for every retailer. After all, the creation and maintenance not only cost time but money. In addition, payment systems must be selected and returns must be accepted.
For an online merchant there are also many legal things to consider. Especially beginners should first of all gain experience on the big market places in the Internet. Or set up an online shop on the Rakuten platform.
With Rakuten’s shop system and the connected online marketplace, shop operators can advertise their products to a large number of potential buyers. The advantages of this online shop are:
A disadvantage is that shop operators have a shop window together with many other dealers, which is accessible via an integrated search. In addition, there is the lack of freedom in the choice of affiliate partners and the obligatory commitment to the bonus system used.
The shop system provides a number of payment options such as credit card, Paypal, prepayment, direct debit and purchase on account. The default risk is assumed completely by Rakuten, so that dealers can deliver regardless of punctual receipt of payment. All payment options are linked to various checks carried out together with leading service providers such as Schufa, Bürgel and others. The complete dunning process and pre-judicial and legal steps are also taken over.
With tested terms and conditions for end customers, Rakuten dealers are automatically and legally always on the safe side without additional costs. The company ensures compliance with the legal framework and takes care of data protection. Even in the case of a warning letter issued on the basis of the GTC or the duty to inform, the liability risk is also assumed.
Trust is one of the most important prerequisites for successful online trading. That is why a Rakuten Shop is certified and awarded many times over. All shops are awarded the eCommerce seal of approval free of charge after a thorough review based on more than 150 criteria. Compliance with data protection has been checked and certified by leading security companies. A TÜV certification stands for the good quality and security of the shop system.
While retail sales are stagnating, online business is still showing respectable growth rates. No wonder, because ordering online is much easier. In addition, the fight for parking space and the queue at the checkout are eliminated. In an online shop, the goods are only a few mouse clicks away. No bad prospects and a few more reasons to promote the idea of your own online shop at Rakuten.
