We want VonMerch.com to be an indispensable tool for all Funko collectors, and a way for them to find the items they need at the lowest price possible.
SEATTLE (PRWEB) January 04, 2018
VonMerch.com, the ultimate shopping site for Funko collectors, opened its Beta to the public today with a huge promise to Funko collectors and fans. The shopping site claims to have the fastest way for Funko collectors to find the best possible price on any Funko collectible sold online. Funko POP!, Dorbz, plushies, and Legacy action figures have together grown Funko to be a brand with sales surpassing $1 billion at retail, and their collectibles are sold at thousands of stores worldwide.
Funko’s “Chase” and “Exclusive” figurines are incredibly hard to find and can sell for thousands of dollars in secondary markets. They can go out of production and even base POPs can have demand that by far outweighs supply. Their prices can also vary drastically across retailers, and availability can change in a matter of seconds. This is why VonMerch.com is vying to be the most comprehensive shopping tool for Funko collectors all throughout the U.S.
Gino Ferrand, CEO and Owner at VonMerch.com, commented: “As Funko and pop culture collectors ourselves, we know the frustrations that exist when trying to hunt down those latest additions to our collections. We want VonMerch.com to be an indispensable tool for all Funko collectors, and a way for them to find the items they need at the lowest price possible. Availability and price are critical factors we track in real-time, and we only aggregate and compare offers from stores we trust.”
By bringing together offers from the top retailers on the web, VonMerch is helping collectors find Funko POPs, Dorbz, and more at the lowest prices and with just a couple of clicks. The site also compares availability, condition, and more, so that collectors and fans can “hunt” down the sought-after collectibles in a more transparent and efficient way. Soon, the site will also have the ability to set alerts so that collectors are informed in real-time of deep discounts, deals, and availability changes on the most sought after Funko POPs and collectibles.
VonMerch also has its sights on expanding its price comparison search engine, and will be adding other geek collectibles to their platform. Collectibles from brands like KidRobot, Sideshow Collectibles, Hot Toys, NECA, McFarlane, LEGO, and more, will be coming to the site in the next few months.
“VonMerch.com is looking to be a trusted ally for collectors. A site where collectors can find what they are looking for at a fair price,” said Ferrand.
The Collectibles sub-category grew roughly 33% in 2017 and was the main driver for the 5% year-over-year growth in the U.S.’ $25 billion per year Toys category. Millenials and adults purchasing toys and collectibles for themselves are the main drivers for this category at retail.
