While commerce continues to grow at a steady rate across the globe, leading marketplaces—the likes of ASOS, Zalando and Amazon—are further outpacing market growth averages. 53% of online shoppers are making purchases on marketplaces three or more times per month. One in five people gathers information on Amazon before making an in-store purchase. And Amazon isn’t the only big player on the marketplace scene: Alibaba, AliExpress, Bol.com, OTTO, and even eBay to name just a few. Digital marketplaces are ubiquitous, and their presence is growing steadily.
Marketplaces can therefore offer you access to a huge base of both existing and new customers. Unsure where to start? Wondering about the best pricing strategy or how to stay on brand? We’re happy to help you get started, or to get further.

BROADEN YOUR HORIZONS
Of course, there’s a world of e-commerce that lies beyond Amazon. Some marketplaces cater to other (wholesale) segments, such as Alibaba, or to more specific geographic regions, like Bol.com to the Netherlands and Belgium.
