What Is Bonanza?
Bonanza is an online marketplace. This means that, unlike an online retail store, it does not actually sell any products online. Instead, it provides an online platform where various sellers can display and offer their products to consumers. The consumer or buyer can then buy products from the sellers directly. The products available on Bonanza are quite diverse. From branded apparel and accessories to jewelry to artwork and collectibles, you can find it there and more. Bonanza has over 50,000 sellers with a listing of over 10 million items to date. It was voted by sellers as The Most Recommended Marketplace on a survey done by EcommerceBytes in 2016. Bonanza was founded in 2008 by Bill Harding. It is headquartered in Seattle, Washington.
