Selling Through Online Marketplaces and Price Comparison Portals

Ecommerce

Online marketplaces are like traditional shopping malls: they offer different products and services to customers within the same “establishment” or platform. These online platforms sell all kinds of products, typically sorted by categories within the same website. Consumers can easily find what they are looking for and, at the same time, compare different offers and varieties. For you as a merchant, it is worthwhile to invest in these channels to display your products and generate additional sales.

Established marketplaces, such as Amazon and eBay, and product portals, like Google Shopping, have the potential to attract many new customers to your products or services. So much so, that 90% of US and UK independent retailers sell their products in online marketplaces, according to a study from Channel Advisor.
