The marketplace aggregator GUTE MARKEN ONLINE and the MYTOYS GROUP, leading online platform for family shopping in Germany, are cooperating in the marketplace business.
Otto Group’s Berlin subsidiary combines three online stores under one roof: myToys.de, the retailer for toys and products for children, mirapodo.de, the online shoe store, and yomonda.de, the home and living provider. In order to be able to offer its customers an even more diverse range of products in the future, the MYTOYS GROUP is currently expanding its partner program.
With immediate effect, the MYTOYS GROUP offers interested partners an additional connection option: As a marketplace aggregator, GUTE MARKEN ONLINE supports more than 70 attractive brands from the fashion and lifestyle sector in the online business. This enables brand partners such as RABE, Miracle of Denim or Angels an uncomplicated and fast connection to the MYTOYS marketplace. As a long-standing marketplace expert, its operational excellence ensures smooth processes, especially in data and account management, customer service, fulfillment and shipping.
“As a managed platform, we offer brands the opportunity to connect the most relevant marketplaces with just one contract and one interface. With MYTOYS we now have a marketplace in our portfolio that opens up the relevant target group of young families to our brand partners” says Thorsten Höllger, CEO of GUTE MARKEN ONLINE.
“The cooperation with GUTE MARKEN supports us in offering our customers an even greater selection and brand availability. At the same time, GUTE MARKEN’s Managed Platform is an efficient solution for retailers who want to get easy and standardized access to our platform” says Johannes Merkl, Head of Partner Program at MYTOYS GROUP.
