Great online marketplace design allows you to grow a buyer/seller community, promote diverse products, and manage and facilitate sales. The following features can help you achieve those goals.
The proliferation of online marketplaces has meant stiff competition for quality sellers. Activate sellers at scale by streamlining and automating their access to your platform.
Well-designed business pages for sellers can drive traffic to your marketplace, increase seller revenue, and help buyers discover products or services.
Helping buyers to interact with your marketplace in a low-friction, intuitive manner is critical to high platform adoption and engagement rates.
The quality of your product or service listings can make or break your marketplace reputation. A well-designed and managed listing structure will attract sellers that drive sales.
Service industries are the next big wave of marketplace disruption. Service marketplace listings should help service providers showcase their offerings so that clients can find them easily.
Users should be able to quickly find the right product or service. This requires the marriage of a seamless user interface with complex under-the-hood technical flows.
Your service marketplace needs to efficiently manage service provider availability and allow clients to book services when and where they need them.
Managing the flow of funds between buyers, sellers and platforms is a core function of an online marketplace. Specialised payment service providers can be customised to support your business model.
Investing in a data-driven category structure can drive (the right) traffic, increase seller retention, and convert more product searches into sales.
Offering multiple currencies, languages or cross-border tax calculations can help expand your marketplace footprint to new markets.
SEO is an important source of traffic for marketplaces. Ensuring that your marketplace, sellers, products or services rank high in search engine results will attract more customers.
Shopping carts allow marketplace buyers to purchase products from multiple sellers in one transaction. This has major implications for customer satisfaction, conversion rates, and ultimately revenue.
Promotions are a great way to drive traffic and conversions. The caveat is that they need to be aligned with what your sellers offer and what your buyers want.
Your order management system is crucial to your marketplace’s performance. Streamlining and automating the process can minimise errors, reduce wastage and increase customer satisfaction.
Users will drop your marketplace if you don’t offer convenient and transparent delivery options. Shipping offers an opportunity to add extra value and create a comparative advantage.
High open and click rates make transactional emails an integral part of any marketplace payment flow. Well-designed transactional templates can increase engagement and improve the shopping experience.
Peter Drucker said, “if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.” The best online marketplaces evolve constantly by collecting and analysing customer feedback and user behavior.
The standing of your marketplace is built on the reputations of your sellers. A review mechanism for sellers and their products or services creates transparency and builds trust.
We are constantly improving our clients' projects with new releases and optimisations. We also love celebrating their successes, whether it's new funding, revenue milestones or growing traction.
