We love marketplaces and are proud to partner with many of the leading online marketplaces. They often push the envelope in terms of fast shipping and ease of use, and are responsible for many improvements in eCommerce over the years.
But they don’t sell everything.
Even in this day and age, there are brands that do not want their products sold via online marketplaces, so authorized dealers like us can’t sell them there. This is often because the manufacturer does not want online sellers to undercut their stocking dealers, but sometimes it is because brands think it undercuts the premium image they are pursuing.
