Tapping potential markets
We help small businesses make money by
reaching people through channels that matter.
Online marketplaces allow you to sell goods without setting up your own online store.
Selling through these channels provides a flexible business opportunity for startups,
SMBs, and individual store owners. Amazon, E-bay, Walmart, and Houzz are some of the
world’s most established digital marketplaces.
With a base of over 300 million active shoppers plus another 170
million unique monthly visitors, Amazon is the biggest market
place – digital or physical. It’s the number one place to go to for
most modern shoppers and the marketplace of choice for most
online sellers. Your products can also reach six continents with
Amazon, thanks to its aggressive worldwide expansion expedited
by the sudden shift to online shopping because of the coronavirus
With Amazon, you can…
• Create local listings for a specific market
• Earn repeat customers without costly marketing campaigns
• Leave handling, storage, packing, and shipping to Amazon
• Get access to Amazon’s world-class customer and technical support
Being the second-largest online retailer, E-bay offers great market exposure for startups and SMBs. With more than 185 million active shoppers, the San Jose-based e-commerce giant serves 32 countries around the world as of 2021, allowing for greater market reach for small businesses which operate at a minimal overhead cost. And while most third-party marketplaces do not have options to create shopping policies, E-bay offers the flexibility to do what you want with your store.
With E-bay, you can…
• Create return policies
• Set shipping fees
• Use your own product information
• Launch small marketing campaigns
Despite arriving later than Amazon or E-bay at the e-commerce landscape,
Walmart is the most powerful force in the world of retail. This retail titan is the
world’s biggest company by revenue for four years straight and spans not just
continental America but 24 countries through physical stores and e-commerce
hubs. When you sell with Walmart Marketplace, you partner your business with
the world’s top retailer.
With Walmart, you can…
• Build your catalog and set prices
• Manage orders and provide customer care
• Ship directly to your customers
• Control your inventory effectively
Providing the best marketplace solution for home professionals, Houzz is the perfect place to browse and save photos of inspiring homes. With hundreds of thousands of active shoppers, Houzz offers an amazing opportunity for retailers of home essentials to expand their market reach and increase monthly revenue. Thanks to its worldwide reach, this community of homeowners and decorators have become a formidable force in e-commerce and is still growing significantly up to this day.
