The launch of Saddle Trader UK is finally here, and we are just so excited to be able to share our brand new online marketplace with you all!
It’s been such a journey creating this business, so we just thought we would share with you all about what we hope to achieve with the launch of this platform, and what you can expect over the coming months.
Saddle Trader UK was started in 2016, when our founder Krystal (who has equestrianism running in her blood for generations) became frustrated in the lack of speciality saddles available to purchase.
Fast forward a few years and here we are, with our brand new platform up and running, with our first few saddle listings already popping up!
So what is Saddle Trader all about?
Our online marketplace will offer users the chance to both buy and sell a whole range of saddles in a simple, safe and easy to use process.
In just a matter of minutes you can choose the best package for your needs; we cater for individuals having a tack room clear out, or businesses who regularly have saddles coming up for sale.
Once you have done this, you will be able to create a listing by following the step by step instructions. Write a description, upload your images, select your category and enter your contact information and buyers will be able to see your listing straightaway.
Security is of paramount importance to us, so you can be assured that you will be able to communicate with buyers in a safe setting, and only arrange delivery or pick up information when you feel comfortable.
What makes us different to other saddle sellers?
We believe we are the first online marketplace dedicated solely to classified listings here in the UK. We are offering users the chance to manage their own listings, offer auctions, video uploads and more, and of course we pride ourselves on the simplicity of the process.
We are offering you the chance to be able to stay in control of your listing, just like other online marketplaces, and also have access to a range of speciality saddles which may be hard to come by.
What else can you expect?
As well as the online marketplace, we will be offering a handful of other beneficial services. One of these will be our saddlers directory, which will provide a list of saddle fitters all around the UK which you can have access to. We know that making sure your saddle fits correctly is extremely important and so we want to be able to ensure that you have access to qualified, expert fitters who are in your local area.
We will also be offering marketing packages to businesses or individuals who want to make sure their saddle gets sold. These marketing opportunities will exist in the form of email newsletters, social media coverage, banners on our website, affiliations etc. So keep your eyes peeled if you’re a saddle retailer!
