Since the Ancient Greeks, marketplaces have been gathering places where people of similar interests come together to exchange information, goods and services. While the modern marketplace has moved from the village square to websites, it still serves the same purpose: bringing buyers and sellers together so that purchases can be made.
Today, an online marketplace needs to be more than just a space for people to make transactions. Successful marketplace solutions align state of the art technology with your business strategy, take advantage of opportunities in your markets, continually innovate the products that are sold, and can scale your business as your customer base grows.
We know how to build a marketplace website and can help you succeed without locking you into a long-term contract.
A generic template-based online marketplace may not meet your users’ needs. Here are 5 good reasons for a custom solution:
A marketplace site is not defined by its software, but by the services it provides to its buyers and sellers. Technology evolves, but the users experience must always be exceptional. We will help you find the best technology for exceeding expectations, while keeping you agile to adopt future innovative features.
When you create a marketplace website, your buyers and sellers are partners. A customised, focused marketplace allows you to find opportunities that larger competitors can’t capture. Your buyers and sellers form a network, where if properly harnessed, can alert you to opportunities that larger companies won’t see until it is too late.
Building customised multi-vendor marketplace software allows you to do the things generic websites cannot. To stand out you need to provide an experience that is distinct and unmatched. That means adjusting the UX/UI of the marketplace to fit your specific business model and community.
Generic marketplace websites are good for small companies looking to get a quick start, but it provides a poor foundation for later growth as they are hard to adjust to realities of scaling. A customised two sided online marketplace software allows for agility to address whatever new opportunities you encounter.
