The end of Multiply
Posted on

Oh, I never really got into Multiply, but once upon a time I was able to sell some pre-owned bags through the site, and for that I am grateful. That said, I feel sad to see them go. The end of another website.
Just got this email from Jack Madrid, Multiply Country Manager, Philippines.

Dear Multiply Merchant,

We regret to inform you that Multiply will be closing the marketplace on May 6, 2013 and discontinuing all business operations by May 31, 2013.
Multiply will maintain normal site operations through May 6th and will wind things down through to the end of the month. We will use the rest of May to make sure that all accounts are settled and that you receive all funds you earned on the platform. We hope this provides you time needed to identify and migrate to alternative ecommerce platforms, settle all payments on items bought and delivered, and try to minimize disruption to your business.
In order to ensure that all your earnings are disbursed to you in full prior to May 31, we will cut off buying activity on May 6, 2013. This will ensure that all orders have sufficient time to be completed and delivered to your customers before the end of the month.
If you have a Trust Badge, please contact our customer support team and we will ensure that you receive a pro-rated refund for the remaining time on your subscription.
If my team can be of any assistance to you during this transition, we will do our best to help.

Respectfully yours,

Jack Madrid
Multiply Country Manager – Philippines

I have an order pending delivery. 🙁
Been 3 months now OMG. Their support is not as responsive. Crappy layout indeed.

They should’ve just stayed with the old design. It was easier to order and follow-up with orders back then with the threads. Now, it’s horrible customer experience. Oh well 🙁

Ang hirap ma-contact ng customer service nila! Either hindi sumasagot, or busy. Even with the message feature on site, walang trace na nag send ka ng message unlike before.

They really killed themselves with that nasty new redesign last March 20. Seems like they deployed an untested system sitewide, and there were so many errors and bugs. Not to mention the concept of the design itself alienated fans and didn’t recognize why people actually shopped at multiply. Whoever that Stefan guy is, he ruined a good thing. Time to take your head out of your ass now. [Reply]Roxi Santiago Reply:April 29th, 2013 at 12:19 AMCould not agree more.

Could not agree more. As a seller, they completely ruined the feeling of security one feels when buying. I stopped running my online store when they changed the site altogether. Only recently I made the wrong move of buying a humidifier on Multiply which we needed as soon as possible and ended up waiting 2 weeks for the item just because the seller wasn’t notified of the order (unlike before each other would have a thread and you can see seller details like contact number). They should have stayed with the old system, just take out the photo sharing, etc.… Read more »

Multiply started out as a really cool blog hosting site, but things have taken a turn since a big company took over. It became too much of a marketplace that the bloggers had to move to other hosts. Sayang. They should have kept the blog aspect strong.
