How to build an online marketplace website? Code your own, hire a web professional or use WordPress?


After determining proper business models for your marketplace, it’s time to find an appropriate technical solution to build up the platform.

How much commission fee to charge your users in online marketplace


To build a pricing strategy for your marketplace is not easy. What works for this marketplace might not work for the others. Many people may prefer high rate while others think a very low rate would be effective in attracting a lot of users to site. There’s no right or wrong answer since each marketplace has its own business strategy including pricing structure to remain competitive in the market while still being able to make profit out of it.

Commission fee is the most popular business model whose pricing structure is also complicated to determine. How much should you charge? Should it be a same flat rate for every transaction or the percentage of the total sum? Who will pay the bill? The buyers, the sellers, or both? There’s no correct formula for this but we will discuss important aspects to  help you decide the pricing for your marketplace.

How can you get rid of this?

You can either choose the new category or rename this default category. (more…)
