eBay has played a huge role in the growth and success of Argofield as a company. In fact, our platform on eBay precedes the set up of Argofield Limited, as it was set up two years before its initial release. Our flagship eBay store, Character_Mad was established over 17 years ago in August 2002. Our whole business started by selling clearance wallpaper, mostly Thomas the Tank Engine, on this site. Then, we started selling a wider variety of wallpapers and children’s toys. Therefore, the entire business started from selling on eBay, and then we were able to expand from there.
Since the inception of our flagship store, we have seen significant changes in the way that eBay operates as a marketplace. It has firmly established itself as the number 2 marketplace in the UK, just after Amazon.
Today, we operate 3 eBay UK stores, with a combined positive feedback score of over 700,000. We pride ourselves on customer feedback, so we consider this as one of our best achievements.
Furthermore, as well as our UK stores, we also sell directly into the United States and translate our listings to sell directly into France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Canada and Australia.
