Why are online marketplaces so important?

Gartner says by 2023, organizations that have operated enterprise marketplaces for more than one year will see at least a 10% increase in digital revenue. For sellers and brands, this means they can significantly increase their visibility.

Digital B2B buying habits

Today’s B2B buyers primarily research and purchase online. Marketplaces are becoming more and more important, disrupting traditional (offline) B2B sales processes.

Amazon sets the standard for customer expectations

The “Amazon experience” has set the benchmark for online shopping. As a manufacturer or distributor, you need to deliver the best-in-class experience and service that your customers expect.

Build customer value quickly

Organic search and sponsored product listings are costly. Marketplaces are an excellent way to quickly expand your reach, enter new markets, increase sales without making major investments.

Risk-free product assortment expansion

Give buyers access to a specific catalog and selection of products per marketplace and offer them an excellent, consumer-like shopping experience at the same time.

What does an online marketplace do?

An online marketplace connects different sellers on one website. Buyers can find everything in one place, regardless of the seller. On the online marketplace, prices and products can be conveniently compared. They also provide greater transparency for product availability and inventory levels. In addition, product reviews make up a large part of the decision-making and actual buying process. Finally, online marketplaces are ideal for reaching new target groups.

What does the future of online marketplaces look like?

In the long run, B2B companies will have to ask themselves whether they can do without a connection to online marketplaces at all – or build their own online marketplace. Many B2B companies are already bringing together their supply chain in one central location to provide their customers with a seamless shopping experience, far beyond their own product range. If buyers can find everything they need in your own online marketplace, they don't need to switch channels to keep on buying. This way, you increase loyalty permanently.
