Kogan Marketplace is an Australia-based retail channel that allows third-party merchants to list and sell their products alongside Kogan brands and products. Kogan.com receives 12 million monthly visitors from around the world.

What do I need to set up a Kogan Marketplace seller account?

You need approval to become a seller on Kogan Marketplace. During the application process, you must supply basic information about your business, including:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Company name
  • Website
  • Preferred integration method

You also have to fill out other clarifying questions about your business, including a description of your product range, if you currently have an ecommerce fulfillment capability, and if you sell on other marketplaces, including those abroad.

Once the application has been approved, the Kogan Marketplace team reaches out to you with an API key so you can start setting up a seller account. While there are no strict requirements when it comes to where you’re selling from, the Kogan Marketplace team suggests that you either have an established retail website that already services Australia or an existing presence on a major Australian marketplace platform.
