Who are Rarewaves?

Rarewaves.com is an award winning retailer and one of the largest online retailers of entertainment products in the world, operating from London and Farnborough in the UK. We have been trading since 2005, received the Queen's Award for Enterprise for Outstanding International Growth in 2018, and were included in the Sunday Times HSBC Tech Track 200 in 2021.

As well as rarewaves.com, we also sell through Amazon.com, Ebay.com, Onbuy.com, Fnac.com, Rakuten.com, and Real.de

We have served over 30 million customers around the world. In 2021 we shipped orders to 175 different countries!

Here's a taste of what customers on Amazon are saying about their order with Rarewaves:

Although entertainment products, such as music, film, books and video games are our heartland, we actually sell much, much more. 

We have been around since 2005 and have grown dramatically since then. We were lucky enough to be awarded the Queen's Award for Enterprise for our Outstanding International Growth in 2018. We got to visit Buckingham Palace and meet Prince Charles!

We've been featured in the national press many times and in May 2019 had a mention from Dr Liam Fox, the Secretary of State for International Trade:

"The SME Export Track 100 showcases the best of British innovation and entrepreneurship. I am especially pleased to see some familiar companies, such as Rarewaves (No 100), which has sold rare vinyl records, video games, books and CDs to buyers in more than 170 countries.

This company worked with the Department for International Trade (DIT) to build its overseas ecommerce strategy, and has benefited from specialist advice on launching in China and other complex markets."
