eCommerce Marketplace Solutions by Elastic Path

Elastic Path supports businesses with marketplace needs whether they want to sell into an existing marketplace like Alibaba and Amazon, or establish their own marketplace within their industry.

What is an eCommerce Marketplace?

Online Marketplaces and Enterprise Marketplaces are digital commerce platforms that showcase products from multiple vendors or sellers. The organization can sell its own products with the option of featuring third-party products.

According to a consumer survey by emarketer, about half of all searches start on marketplaces.

When done right, eCommerce Marketplaces, especially those who support a third party model, take user experience a notch above traditional digital commerce avenues. Not only are consumers able to save a trip to a physical store, but now they have a one stop shop to compare similar products without switching from site to site. This type of ease of use, convenience, and accessibility continues to attract shoppers presenting an opportunity for many brands to capitalize on.
