Grow your sales channels with a marketplace

There is no denying that e-commerce is an important sales channel for an organisation, be it B2B, B2C or a combination. This includes marketplaces: a platform or retail chain that allows external parties to sell on its website. E.g Amazon, bol.com, Airbnb, but also Galeria Inno, Brico, Obelink or Decathlon.

 

Our Xplorers can help you with:

  • Strategy: is it interesting to set up your own marketplace? Or is it better to sell on existing marketplaces? Which marketplaces are interesting for me?
  • Connecting to an existing marketplace
  • Setting up your own marketplace from scratch
  • Optimisations that can lead to more sales
  • All connections between your system and marketplaces

Selling on an existing marketplace

When you choose to start selling on an existing marketplace, you can offer completely new products or sign up as a seller of already existing products. The vendor with the best offer (price, delivery time, etc.) is then set as the default seller. The platform on which you sell will always receive a commission on what you sell there.

When you sell on an existing marketplace, there are several options, in terms of logistics, for example: either you take care of it yourself, or you opt for fulfilment by the marketplace (when they offer it, of course).

 

The market share of marketplaces in online purchases is very large – and still growing every year. This makes it a very interesting sales channel, but it can certainly be overwhelming at first. Our Xplorers are happy to help you on your way. We can help choose the right tools and channels, set up the accounts and make sure you meet all the sales requirements. With our experience, we’ll make sure you avoid rookie mistakes.
