Why should you be searching for vinyl records on eBay?
Record Store day retailers started selling their vinyl records on eBay
eBay has decided to partner up with Record Store Day in order to let independent record and vinyl stores have access to over 179 million eBay buyers. The decision was made after seeing that eBay is the go-to destination for music-goers and vinyl enthusiasts searching for new, rare, and unique vinyls at a great value. eBay offers shoppers access to the widest selection of collectible vinyl records through trusted independent sellers and record stores around the globe.
Record Store Day is a celebration of independent record stores, in fact, the entire point of RSD is to steer music fans into physical stores. Record Store Day has official international organizers in the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Australia, Spain, and Poland, starting this year, so it’s a market on which eBay has decided to participate actively. In other words, change the focus of buyers from physical record stores to online record shops.
“Interest in vinyl continues to soar among today’s music lovers, and the category is more popular than ever on eBay. We remain dedicated to supporting independent retailers who bring music and culture to their local communities, and this partnership allows us to expand their reach to a global audience”, eBay Vice President of Merchandising Sam Bright said, explaining also how eBay shoppers will discover a larger selection of vinyl and record-based products on eBay, thus supporting local small businesses.
Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally.
The first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008, and today there are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica. Throughout its years, cities across the United States, including New York City, Los Angeles, Boise, Charleston, and Las Vegas have declared Record Store Day an official holiday. This year, this special day was celebrated on the 13th of April.
“Record Store Day continues to expand and look for ways to support indie stores year-round and working with marketplaces like eBay help us bring growth opportunities and easy-to-use tools to the indie businesses that are at the center of what we do”, said Carrie Colliton, co-founder of Record Store Day.
