Rarewaves began on eBay but has quickly scaled to over 27 ecommerce marketplaces around the world, including Amazon, eBay, OnBuy, Fnac, Kaufland, and Walmart. Across these platforms over 600 million consumers around the world see a Rarewaves product every week.  Rarewaves frequently ranks as the number one British seller on Amazon in the US, Germany, France, and Japan.

Rarewaves Group also includes Rarewaves USA, a separate LLC based in Florida, USA which launched in 2011. Plans are also underway to launch our newest business, Rarewaves GMBH, in 2022.

As well as online marketplaces, Rarewaves launched their own website in 2019 which now has 2 million unique visitors annually.

A dedication to delivering best in class customer service in local language. While maximising our marketplace relationships and growing our direct website business.
