Merchandise Distribution Platform Business

MARKET PLACE

Every year, loss on disposal of slow-moving inventory amounts to 20 trillion yen in Japan and 100 trillion yen worldwide (Aucfan estimate).

Achieve seamless distribution by matching slow-moving corporate inventory with product needs
To resolve the social problem of loss on inventory disposal, the Aucfan Group provides a diverse range of distribution channels including B2B, B2C, domestic, and overseas routes, and also focuses on indirect distribution that leverages cloud sellers connected to the globally expanding Aucfan Group. We operate following distribution channels.

Otameshi

Sampling Service Site Oriented toward Social Contribution

  • Purchase products

This e-commerce site provides a sampling service with a social contribution element, as a portion of sales are donated to social causes.

Buyers can select their NPO, NGO, or other organization of choice to receive the donation.

junijuni

Socially conscious e-commerce site for Tokyo Gas members

  • Purchase products

This e-commerce site offers food and everyday goods that would otherwise be disposed of due to such reasons as looming expiration dates, updated packages, or the end of limited-time promotions, at reasonable prices, and donates a portion of sales to various organizations working to resolve social issues. The site name “junijuni” was taken from the number 12 (pronounced “juni” in Japanese), to represent its commitment to Goal 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production) of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) adopted by all member states of the UN in 2015.
