Placement in marketplaces. Connectores for marketplaces

What is a marketplace in simple terms?

Marketplace is an online platform for the sale, purchase of goods and services, an e-commerce platform that provides information about a product or service of third parties.
It is also a place where a variety of goods from different sellers are offered around the clock online, an Internet platform where sellers and buyers find each other and interact with each other.
It is important to understand that marketplaces themselves do not sell anything. Their main tasks are quite different:
  • Increase sales.
  • Attract additional traffic.
  • To promote goods and services.

  • Help you get your business up and running quickly.
  • Simplify logistics.
  • Expand the geography of presence.

The principle of the marketplace: how do they sell here?

The seller registers on the site, creates an account. Next, enter your details. After that, the seller fills in the product cards, adds a photo, a text description, and uploads the articles. Be sure to wait for the approval of the moderators of his application, after which he just starts working.
At the next stage, the seller updates the availability of its products in the warehouse and can wait for orders from buyers.
The buyer searches for the goods he is interested in in the catalogs of the marketplace, adds them to the cart, pays for the purchase.
The seller sends the customer's order to the required pickup point by delivery service.

What products are better to sell on the marketplace?

The most popular will be products with consistently high demand, proper quality and competitive price. Among such items are souvenirs, smartphones, auto products, toys.

Placement on the marketplace is an excellent solution for start-up businessmen and small companies that may not yet have their own warehouses and logistics departments. Companies that copy popular brands also feel good on marketplaces.

Every day, marketplaces receive a large flow of traffic, and at the same time they are an excellent start for launching your own business on the Internet. Marketplaces attract potential buyers with an excellent choice of goods, the ability to compare retailers' prices for similar types of products and choose the most profitable option, saving their time and money.
According to suppliers and buyers at the beginning of 2023, the largest marketplaces are: Amazon, Ebay, Allegro, Olx etc.
