What is a Marketplace App?

One might think that a marketplace app is simply one that offers shopping opportunities for clothes, jewelry, shoes, and the like. You can also think of apps such as Amazon, eBay, SHEIN, Shopee, or Lazada at the back of your mind.

However, a marketplace app is simply so much more.

A marketplace app facilitates a user’s shopping from many different sources. As the marketplace owner, you do not own any inventory. Your app will be the medium among other businesses to present their products and services to a user and facilitate their transactions when made.


One of the main advantages of a marketplace app is that people would more likely download it since they would like to choose from a selection of brands before buying anything. Since people want quality for their money, product and brand comparisons are essential processes before buying.

There may be multiple markets that you can cater such as goods, properties, services, stay-ins, and many more. With that said, you can include Airbnb, Trivago, and even Agoda into the category of marketplaces.

 

Pearl Lemon Web understands this broad knowledge of marketplaces. However, despite how vast it is, we can always work with the specifics you ask for.

Types of Marketplaces

Although there are various marketplaces, there are only three types of marketplaces where all of these categories fall in. They are:

ring

c2C

Marketplace App Features

Product Discovery

Visitors arrive at your marketplace app after searching within the app. Whatever the case may be, the items featured on an online marketplace must be easily found. Product searches must be configurable so that a particular product, brand, or price point may be filtered in or out.

Payment Gateway

Customers purchase things online because it is more convenient. As a result, payment gateway integration is required in every marketplace to enable smooth, digital payments within the app. Payment gateways such as PayPal, Stripe, Visa, and Mastercard are widely used.

Shipment Tracking

Transparency is essential to any business’ success. A consumer wants total openness. In terms of a marketplace app, transparency in product shipment is key. The shipment process must be visible to the user from when they pay for anything until it reaches them. You must integrate your delivery partners’ package tracking codes to enable in-app tracking.

Review and Ratings

People will either love or hate a product they purchased from your marketplace. Individuals buying items on your site must understand which ones are worth buying and which ones aren’t. The greatest approach to letting them know which of them is worth it is through user-generated ratings and reviews.

The features we’ve mentioned above are just some of the general ones that you’ll usually see on marketplace apps. If there are other features you’d like to integrate into your app, our team of experts will be more than happy to talk about them HERE.
