Rakuten UK to cease operation
7 Jun 2016
It may come as no surprise, but it appears from a recent e-mail that Rakuten UK will be no more from the end of August.

No surprise really due to their poor marketing and the way they treated customers when they changed from Play.

We were lucky and did not class it as a major platform due to the poor sales, but will this affect other sellers in a major way ?

@Bigian13 Wouldn't surprise me if they stopped in the US too.
