Due to more and more digital audience switching to purchase through the online market, the need for marketplaces websites is increasing phenomenally. The number of online buyers had already reached the 2 billion mark by the end of 2018.

Online industry:

This lucrative business idea(marketplace) has urged many entrepreneurs to start their own venture. But the question is that all of them are succeeding in their niche? The marketplace fits for any business like selling and exchanging goods, renting, booking, transport services, tenders, auctions, food delivery, logistics, education, job search and many more.

Hence, the people who are strong or having to experience in the relative industry only know the solutions. If you are businessmen reading this, I would suggest you choose the specific niche or your industry. It will help you to identify the necessary things to be implemented.

Coming to the point, there are two ways to kick start the marketplace, one is buying the readymade script and another method is building a website from scratch. For example, if you are going for renting hotels, vacations, you can opt-in for readymade Airbnb clone script which is also customizable.

Must have features:

Before that, you should implement these mandatory features in the marketplace website,

Registration form,

Account page,

Authorization and security,

The client support system,

Item listing,

Search engine,

Shopping cart,

Reviews and testimonials,

Integrated payment functionality,

Shipping functionality or order acknowledgment

Why I am saying that these are the mandatory sets because these are the things which will help the users to trust your website. Whenever the user feels convenient to use the products or services, the growth of the business is automatically rising to the top. Hope you like this one and ask me if anything I have missed out.
