Music, tech & innovation
At vinylExpress we believe record collectors all over the world should be able to buy the records they admire.
But most records are not available. Record stores worldwide have loads of unlisted records in their warehouse (because listing is too time-consuming); and for a EU based collector like myself it’s almost impossible to buy US records, due to the ridiculously high shipping costs (up to $25 for an LP!).
Our mission is to solve these problems with a tech solution (algorithms) and an innovative business model (shipping).
Our algorithms recognise the correct releases and let sellers list items online in bulk. To make even more items available to collectors we collect orders in the EU for US record stores, and lower shipping costs by shipping in bulk. So you’ll be presented with records that are hard to find elsewhere, and the local record stores have an additional way of showcasing their records to a new audience.
Like in a physical record store, we’re here to help with questions or items you've been looking for so badly. You can ask your questions in the chat function below.
For the record!
