With marketplaces showing significant opportunity for growth, many companies and communities are asking how they can tap in. Web Force 5 can help retailers expand what they offer in their catalogs and branch out to new brands and markets with less investment risk. They can also scale more easily than drop-shipping and better manage sellers, and they can bring communities together, connecting like-minded buyers and sellers.
However, as with any new endeavor, it can be hard to know how to plan and build for success. A lot of ideas get thrown at you on how you can and should build, from whether you should build or just join a giant marketplace to simply dropship. Cost and time are certainly big considerations, especially in the decision to custom build or launch on existing enterprise-grade tech.
In this eBook, we’ve partnered with Adobe and Marketplacer to compile commonly asked questions as a guide to help set you up for success in both launching and running your own third-party marketplace.
