Sears Holdings Corp. said Thursday it was letting third parties — including some competitors — sell things on its Web site.

The change added more than 10 million products from 1,500 vendors to those available at the company's Web sites. A spokesman said that will more than double the number of products available on Sears.com.

The service, which officially began Thursday, puts Sears in the company of Walmart.com and Amazon.com, which already sells millions of items from third parties.

Sears will receive a commission on sales made through the service, which it calls the Marketplace at Sears.com. It will also get a fee for listing the items.
