ecommerce and marketplace

An online Marketplace is an ecommerce platform that connects buyers with sellers. The role of the marketplace owner is to bring together the right vendors and the right customers to drive sales. Vendors have a place to gain visibility and sell their products, and the marketplace owner earns a commission from each sale. 

An Ecommerce Store, on the other hand, is a single Vendor selling their own products on their website. All marketing and website maintenance are managed by the person or company that owns the website and products.

Advantages of selling in a marketplace

Whether you have a business or you’re a private individual, an online Marketplace is a great way to boost sales.

  • You do not have to have your own website. Setting up and maintaining your own ecommerce website is a lot of work and can be expensive. By selling on a marketplace you save on that cost. 
  • You save on advertising. It is the responsibility of the marketplace owner to advertise and bring in the right customers. The better they do it, the better visibility sellers have and more money the marketplace owner makes. So it is in their interest to promote the marketplace to the right buying audience.
  • You reach a lot of people. It is true that there will be a lot of competition, but there will also be people interested in buying your products.
  • Enjoy both worlds. You can have your own ecommerce store which you can drive sales through, as well as sell on a marketplace. This is a strategy to grow sales. At the end of the day, making sales is the most important thing. 

Millions of sellers across the world have increased sales on some of the most successful marketplaces such as, Amazon, Alibaba, eBay, Etsy etc. Most of these sellers strictly sell on their chosen marketplace, while some of them also have their own Ecommerce Stores. Enjoying both worlds.
