eBay launches ‘The Entertainment Shop’

Online marketplace eBay has introduced ‘The Entertainment Shop’, a new dedicated category hub for books, films, music and games as it looks to become “the new home” of physical media.

The curated on-site destination will include new, catalogue and pre-owned books, film, music and games across the marketplace from brands and sellers around the world.

With an emphasis on new releases, The Entertainment Shop will aim to serve as a one-stop shop for physical media. 

eBay said it has already established new partnerships with major studios to support retailers with new releases. Existing major sellers of books, DVDs, Blu-rays, CDs and video games, including Music Magpie, Wordery and Entertainment Alliance, will also be enhancing their offers in line with eBay’s proposition.

With sales of physical media worth an estimated £3.8 billion in the UK in 2016, it is one of the most popular categories on eBay.

Rob Hattrell, eBay UK’s vice president, said: “We want to be THE destination for physical media in the UK driven by best value, unrivalled inventory and competitive seller fees. The first item ever sold on eBay UK was a Scorpions CD in 1999 for £2.89 and now we are home to some of the world’s largest suppliers of books, music, film and games.

“The launch of The Entertainment Shop is a natural progression for eBay that will offer brands and sellers of all sizes the opportunity to capitalise on the UK’s enduring appetite for physical media.”
