Unique and Successful Marketplace Website Design and Development

Marketplace Development

The main difference between a price comparison website and a marketplace is that customers can purchase from a marketplace, whereas a price comparison website would normally redirect the customer through to the retailer website. A marketplace would aim to keep the customer on the website, take them through checkout (where the customer could purchase from multiple retailers in the same transaction) and facilitate the sale, while taking a commission.
