Staying ahead is crucial for success in today's fast-moving e-commerce business. Selling in different marketplaces always helps you to get a wide range of audience. There are many ecommerce marketplaces available for you to list products, such as Amazon, Houzz, Walmart, Etsy, Overstock, Wayfair, The Bay, Home Depot etc.

Let's focus on "The Bay," also known as "Hudson’s Bay"

Hudson's Bay is a major Canadian department store chain with a robust online presence featuring everything from fashion to electronics. It’s the longest and largest company with millions of visitors. Consequently, it's a prime spot to showcase your products.

However, getting your products uploaded efficiently to “The Bay” can be challenging without a solid plan.

How to Sell on Hudson’s Bay

Before you start selling on Thebay.com, ensure you have your business name (brand), address, contact information, registration documents, UPC/EAN/ISBN codes for products, a digital product catalog, and information on order fulfillment, returns, and customer service management.

Additionally, you need to submit information on shipping locations, distribution centres, retailers carrying your brand, product categories, presence on other marketplaces, and whether your brand is BIPOC owned or designed etc.

Once you have The Bay team’s approval, you can list products after creating Bay account.

You can either create each product manually on backend or can do bulk uploading using template.
