"When you think of online marketplaces, the names that automatically come to mind are likely Amazon and eBay. It makes sense. They’re the safe bets. Though these two behemoths take up the largest share of the market, they’re far from the only options. From niche, product-specific marketplaces to international giants with tens of millions of loyal shoppers each month, there are plenty of additional avenues for growth out there. But with so many third-party marketplaces cropping up, you need to find the opportunities that make the most sense for your products.
Expanding to new marketplaces continues to be one of the safest and quickest ways to scale your e-commerce business. The built- in customer base and established infrastructure of each marketplace allow you to focus on other priorities, such as sourcing, pricing, promotion and fulfillment. Selling on multiple marketplaces also diversifies your online channels, so if something goes wrong on one, you always have other sources of revenue.
