What are (online) marketplaces?

A marketplace is an e-commerce platform, on which several parties (so-called sales partners) offer products. It serves as an extra sales channel in addition to, for example, your own website. Well-known examples of marketplaces are bol, Amazon and Zalando, but platforms like Facebook and Google Shopping also offer opportunities for sales as a Marketplace. These platforms act as an ecosystem and bring buyers & sellers together.

Marketplaces insights

Adchieve offers customised dashboarding focused on sales on marketplaces. It allows you to analyse sales performance on bol and Amazon down to product level and gives you access to data that is normally not comparable in a single dashboard. Think of performance data (impressions, clicks, conversion rate), ad presentations to insight into organic positions.

This gives you insight into the development of the performance, on all possible cross-sections up to the profitability per product. This enables sales reps to match their offer to the demand and operate more effectively, which in turn leads to higher customer satisfaction.

Benefits of marketplaces

Selling on marketplaces gives you access to an audience of millions. This increases the visibility of your brands and easily reaches potential customers. Consumers browsing on marketplaces have a strong purchase intention, due to the trust and authority of platforms like Amazon and bol. 

In addition, it is an easy way to sell internationally, without having to set up your own infrastructure in other countries. This opens the door to new markets and customers around the world. 

In exchange for access to this vast sales channel, marketplaces charge a commission on product sales. In addition, it is important to get your logistics right and create visibility through advertising. A dynamic game, where all decisive factors combine to create top positions and being on the ball is a must.

    Product performance: The great thing about working via the dashboard is that, through insight over time, you immediately see the effect of all your implemented optimisations.
