Reasons to Start the Marketplace Website Development Process

Very often such a site is compared to a market, where you set up your stall and sell various goods. The same is the case with your own marketplace website. This form of the business model brings together numerous companies, helps to attract customers, and allows you to control the behavior, prices, or offers of your competitors on an ongoing basis.

The key principle of the marketplace site is also that it is on this site that the purchase takes place. The recipients are simply not transferred to a separate page, but all formalities are dealt with on this website.

Advantages and disadvantages for potential buyers in the web shop

Important advantages of the marketplace are the huge variety and the presence of many complex sites, the ability to easily and quickly familiarize yourself with numerous offers, and the saving time. Add to this the lower prices compared to the prices in brick-and-mortar or online stores, as well as more secure transactions.

The disadvantages may seem to be the need to pay for shipping separately from several sellers, limited contact with the store, and others.

Advantages and disadvantages for sellers in the e-store

Benefits for sellers include greater visibility on the Google search engine, the ability to create another distribution channel, easy access to the base of potential users, the ability to control the number of orders, ease of operation, and sales support.

In addition, the marketplace increases the visibility of the store, allows you to reach a wider target audience, has a low development cost, and provides the sale of physical and digital goods and services.

The disadvantages are high competition, selling costs, and commissions. You also need to constantly monitor changes in the rules of a particular marketplace, and if you still want to use this platform, you must adapt to them.

What marketplace owner expect

One of the main sources of marketplace owners' income is commissions or subscriptions. This type of e-commerce allows other vendors to join the online platform. The growing number of potential customers using the website will also have a positive impact on the ability to negotiate favorable prices.

You must be aware of the enormous responsibility that comes with having online marketplaces. You just need a whole team of people to control online transactions, ensure they comply with regulations, and promote the marketplace platform.

The Cost of Creating a Successful Marketplace Website


It is not easy to convey in a few words the complexity of the entire process of creating a marketplace startup website. Every project is different. Accordingly, at different stages of their implementation of the work, the cost will be more or less. Depending on the type and purpose of the site, as well as the volume and nature of the work. Below we will elaborate on some aspects.

Design of custom marketplaces

It is worth considering a number of factors that affect the final perception of the web page, and therefore your company. It is a way of interacting with a website: intuitive navigation, accessibility of content, understanding who the message is addressed to and formulating it for a specific recipient. User interface design implements both aesthetic and functional assumptions. These are the main features of a well-designed website.

The work of a front-end developer

The so-called cut design also impacts the operating costs. That is, the implementation of previously prepared graphics, page layout on technologies run in the browser (HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript). As a result, a static website is created. At this stage, we ensure compatibility with all versions and types of browsers. We develop responsive views (RWD) for phones and tablets. In some cases, we focus on the smartphone first, and other devices second.

Contribution of the backend developer

At this stage, a "static website is linked" to the content management system (CMS). Generally speaking, we prepare everything related to running scripts on the server (PHP, Ruby on Rails, and Node.js). For simple pages, we start with the installation of the CMS (WordPress or TYPO3). When dealing with dedicated software, there is much more to a custom-made web application.
