BOOTS New Online Marketplace
Boots, the UK's largest wellness and beauty store, will launch Boots Marketplace in spring 2023, expanding the selection of items accessible on boots.com by including third-party firms.
This new service is part of Boots' ongoing digital plan to significantly expand the retailer's online assortment, offering customers access to brand-new and varied categories and enabling suppliers of all sizes to access the Boots client base. Boots' status as one of the most recognised and renowned brands in the UK will aid new and developing companies.
The new marketplace, powered by the SaaS platform Mirakl, will also guarantee that customers continue to use simple checkout for mixed baskets and have access to each of Boots' perks, including the Boots Advantage Card reward system.
Paula Bobbett (2022), Chief Digital Officer at Boots, stated: “Marketplace is the exciting next step in our digital transformation programme. We’re approaching this new opportunity for Boots with a deep understanding of our customers and the health, beauty and wellness products that they want to buy, and helps us to work with new smaller and entrepreneurial brands. Marketplace will allow us to build on the strength of our existing business to offer an even bigger range of choices for consumers and be the first to market with emerging brands and new products.” (‘Boots Launches Brand New Online Marketplace’ 2022)
Since 2020, Boots has introduced about 70 new and iconic beauty brands, including Elemis, which just debuted in 10 stores and on boots.com, as well as modest up-and-coming companies. Customers will be able to access more brands and items, while suppliers of all sizes will have the chance to communicate with Boots customers.
