FAQs

When answering this question, you should understand that any feature your marketplace has should be valuable for users and make their engagement with the platform more convenient. We offer the full scope of ecommerce marketplace website development services. For starters, focus on the major functions every multi-vendor marketplace must have:

  • Signup process
  • Vendor dashboard
  • Search and filtering
  • Payment gateways
  • Wishlist and shopping cart
  • Analytics dashboard
  • Messaging and reviews

It takes about 2 months to develop an MVP — a minimum viable product. The first version of the marketplace will include the basic functionalities. It is enough to launch and test the platform with real users.

Generally, it takes around 2-6 months to finalize and release the project. If you need marketplace portal development with B2B features the duration of your project might be longer.


It is almost impossible to give an exact price. We encourage individual approach and estimate each project with its requirements and tasks on an individual basis. Development from scratch or based on an existing solution, integrations and customizations, and design are all factors to consider. B2B marketplace development is usually more expensive that B2C marketplace development.  If you already have an idea, don’t hesitate to book a call with us to get a rough estimate.


A marketplace is an online platform that brings together vendors and buyers. Sellers display their products or services on the platform available for purchase. Buyers find the needed item, add it to the shopping cart and process to checkout. The marketplace integrated with payment gateways and shipping services allows customers to select the most convenient way of payment and delivery.

Popular examples of marketplaces are Amazon, AliExpress, and eBay. We offer custom enterprise marketplace development to meet your any business requirements.


An owner of the multi-vendor marketplace acts as an intermediary between buyers and sellers. Here’s how you can make money: get a commission from every transaction made, charge sellers a fee for every ad posted, implement a subscription model, and charge users monthly or yearly fees.
