Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where do I start to create my online multi-vendor marketplace?
    To get started, it couldn't be easier. Simply fill out our Contact form and we will be in touch to schedule an online call as soon as possible. We know trying to communicate all of the complex areas of your marketplace is difficult over email. Your business deserves a video call. Check out our Platform Partners in the meantime.
  • I have a marketplace idea, what's next?
    It is wonderful that you have the next biggest marketplace idea for 2023! We'd love to be a part of it with you in any capacity. We'll work with you to flush out all of the details from Branding, Personas, to Prototyping. Our partnership is more than just developing your idea, it is also educating you along the way!
  • How much does it cost to develop a marketplace?
    The cost will depend on a variety of factors such as urgency, complexity, and budget. Typically, we will begin with a 3 to 6-month Design contract to flush out the details and create prototypes resulting in a package of assets you'll need to begin development. You have the option of using Sharetribe Flex which we can get launched in 1 to 2 months time from the $20,000 to $150,000 USD range.
  • Should I create an MVP marketplace first and then come to see Marketplace Studio?
    You can certainly create a proof-of-concept first before coming to see us! We recommend using Sharetribe Go to prove your model as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible. We can help at any stage, Pre-Product, Post-Launch, V2 Build, or Re-Platforming.
  • What about confidentiality and IP ownership?
    When you submit a project proposal through our website or any other method of communication, Marketplace Studio is obliged to keep your idea safe & private under a Non-Disclosure & IP Agreement. This agreement essentially says that we will not make any information you tell us public without your written consent.

Our Key Steps To Create Your Marketplace:

1. Discovery

We ask "why" and not "what" to get to the root of your idea. Through research, we validate, discover your competitive advantages, and learn about your end-user. These key findings will provide the foundation for the next step.

A Note From Our Co-Founder

Marketplaces are a very complex business primarily because you need to focus on providing a welcoming experience to two different types of users along with meeting business requirements to be successful. Many people ask us these questions:

  1. How do I create an online marketplace?

  2. How would I develop an eCommerce marketplace like Amazon or eBay?

  3. How much does it cost to develop an MVP marketplace and scale?

Through our experience, and through the experience of our clients, we find there is not one single answer to these questions. There are many. We will give you the tools and extract that end result you’ve conceived in your mind and make your marketplace a reality.
