Marketplace apps development

Projects with two sides or roles: one is providing services and the second one is consuming these services. Can be applied to a variety of industries like Beauty, Retail, Transport, literally any kind of market. For Marketplace projects it’s critical to have both roles present at so-called critical mass, that is clients have enough executives to choose from, and executives will receive enough new clients to be interested in listing on the platform. When it comes to the B2C segment, online marketplaces are highly developed, with marketplaces making up 53% of total B2C online sales in 2020.

Marketplace types we develop
Modern technologies allow us to create a wide range of marketplace website development solutions – from universal trading platforms to industry-specific apps. Roughly, it is possible to highlight three significant categories of marketplace mobile apps we focus on: goods, services, information.

No matter what your sphere is, all marketplace products have a common structure. In addition to its owner, the platform is usually designed for two parties – one of them acts as a consumer, and the other is a supplier. Depending on the specific site, both companies and individuals can both act as sellers and buyers. It is the ultimate task of our company to offer you the best frame for this interaction.

CookieDev has all the necessary skills to develop a web or mobile marketplace app based on one of the three key models of the market:
- C2C (customer-to-customer). Individuals sell goods and services to other individuals for money or through barter.
- B2C (business-to-customer). Companies sell goods and services to individual customers. This app type represents the majority of all marketplaces.

B2B (business-to-business). This model allows one business to provide goods and services to the other. These are marketplaces that are mainly used for wholesale sales.

Sometimes B2C and C2C models are successfully combined on the same site. With CookieDev, you can be sure you will be offered a unique approach and efficient solution.
