Helena announced the long-term strategy to bring more value to sellers. With the priority focused on the needs of sellers, Tophatter plans to develop more products and technical tools and build a more competitive environment within the value chain. "Tophatter always trusts our sellers who can provide buyers the best experience, and, with that in mind, the platform will support sellers who are best at signing on and retaining customers, and to structure a new seller-orientated business model," Helena said.

"If you are just starting out while others have already climbed halfway up the mountain, do you still have a chance to succeed? The only opportunity is, rather than to chase the competitors who are already ahead of you, to choose a higher peak beyond the valley and be the first to conquer it. When you reach the top, you will be greeted by an even more magnificent vista. Together with our sellers, Tophatter is aiming at creating a new world with fun and excitement for eCommerce industry "

A $10,000 reward will be granted to the winner alongside several support polices to facilitate the sales process during the upcoming holiday season:

  • The commission fee decreases to 9% for both new and existing sellers;
  • New seller levels released, with top sellers earning lower commission fee;
  • VIP seller club officially rolled out, with VIP sellers receiving exclusive shipping and payment discounts;
