About Ymart

  

What is Ymart?


We started Ymart for you and other entrepreneurs to liberate your creative spirit, unleash your potential and give you the true power of online commerce.
For us, small businesses the only way to gain a meaningful online presence and be competitive is to get together in order to gain size, voice and visibility.
That is the idea behind Ymart.
Ymart is a grassroots community project started by entrepreneurs who know your problems first hand. Like you we wanted to grow a successful business. Quickly we realized that not only brick and mortar but online world is dominated by big players.
This is why we launched Ymart, an online small business marketplace for small Canadian businesses, where each entrepreneur can have their own store and enjoy equal rights to compete regardless the size.


With Ymart you to run your business 100% online:
•           sell your products and services
•           process PayPal and credit card payments
•           track inventory and orders
•           communicate with your customers

Ymart is ultimately free. The only fee you pay on Ymart is 5% commission on sales. You control your inventory. Your deal directly with your customers.  

   

 

How Ymart is different from the competition

Ymart is easy, simple and free. We charge only when you sell and only 5%.

Competitor

How Ymart is similar

How Ymart is different

Amazon

e-commerce functionality

Focus on SMEs, GTA activation, much easier to set up, substantially cheaper (free listing vs. $29.99 monthly annual fee (business account), 5% commission on sales vs. 15% (expt. electronics) +  other fees*), suitable for services, control over the inventory, shipping flexibility incl. pick-up, allows face-to face integration with customers, extra support and promotion through Ymart social media

eBay

e-commerce functionality

Focused on GTA, truly local (eBay content is mostly foreign, which creates complications/cost related to FX, customs, etc. and make it impossible to contact a seller and see the product), focus on SMEs, much easier to set up, substantially cheaper (5% on sales vs. 10% + fees*), suitable for services, shipping flexibility incl. pick-up, allows face-to face integration with customers, extra support and promotion through Ymart social media

Kijiji

Local, free

No classifieds, fully functional e-commerce platform which allows online transactions, permanent presence (no listing expiration which requires constant relisting), we only charge commission on sales and fees for value-added service similarly to Kijiji, extra support and promotion in Ymart social media

Etsy.com

e-commerce functionality

Unlike Etsy, which is a global online marketplace for creative (artistic) entrepreneurs, Ymart is a open for any type of businesses including services. Ymart is local, our fees are comparable (Etsy charges $US 0.20 listing fee and 3.5% commission, we change no upfront fees and 5% commission), local activation and extra support and promotion through Ymart social media

Sopify

Web store builder platform
