Here is the announcement of its closing of the said website.

Multiply Marketplace is Closing on May 6, 2013

Here is their announcement:

"We regret to announce that Multiply will be closing on May 6, 2013 and ceasing all business operations by May 31, 2013.

Multiply will maintain normal site operations through May 6. We will use the rest of May to make sure the all accounts are settled and that merchants receive full payment for all the transactions they completed on our platform. This will also provide our merchants with time to find and migrate to alternative ecommerce platforms, settle all payments on items bought and delivered, and to minimize disruption to their businesses.

Multiply will ensure that you receive all funds you earned on the platform no later than May 31, 2013. We will close the actual marketplace sooner, on May 6, 2013, to ensure that all orders have sufficient time to complete and be delivered to your customers before the end of the month.

Merchants who have premium subscriptions should contact our customer support and we will ensure that they receive a full refund for the un-used time on your subscription."

To some extent, I am sad that they are closing. And I am also looking at my profile since I have uploaded some pictures in Multiply. So for those who have their precious photos in Multiply, download and save it now. :)

***Update: You cannot access the personal pages now. Therefore, you cannot download your photos. :(



  1. Well hellooooo we bloggers all knew that closing the bloggers end of Multiply would lead to its demise.

    1. @Fantaesia: This post was not intended for bloggers who already know but to those who do not know yet. :) Thanks for your comment anyways.

  2. We've predicted this months ago when Multiply announced the shutting down of their social networking features. We've also tried to appeal to the new management, but they just wouldn't listen.

    They just couldn't get it through their thick skulls that e-commerce in Multiply was actually started informally as an extended activity of online friendship. Sellers and buyers were online friends who were not only doing business but were sharing stories as well, as most sellers were actually bloggers (or at least started as bloggers). The business in Multiply back then relied on human touch. This human touch was actually the best attraction to shop, and eliminating this human touch means burning the shop. That's what kills Multiply.

    That, and the incompetence and arrogance of their personnel; their customer service in particular.

    1. I am not that acquainted with the Multiply eselling platform. But I guess there are a lot of online sellers/bloggers who were disappointed of Multiply's services. But I think it is already final. Sellers in multiply should find other selling platforms to continue business.
      Thank you for commenting. Much appreciated.
