Much has been made of the double blow of Amazon and the Covid-19 pandemic on the local high street. Websites have been developed that pay a certain percentage back to shops every time they sell an item, and online marketplaces have sprung up everywhere with extortionate selling fees and hidden costs - all in the name of saving independent bricks and mortar shops, but in reality, squeezing their margins and reducing sales revenue.
Yorkshire Book Shops is on online marketplace providing a selling space to independent retailers based in Yorkshire. Our shops are lucky enough to enjoy the lowest fees on the web, with absolutely no subscription fees or hidden costs. They sell their own stock on our platform and receive 95% or more of the sale.
As buyers and lovers of books ourselves, we started Yorkshire Book Shops to make buying and selling books online a great experience for everyone. For our buyers, we make it easy for shops to create free shipping offers and discounts. Our shops, meanwhile, benefit from our simple fee plan and easy-to-use platform.
