Steps to Launch a Successful Online eCommerce Marketplace


The growth of eCommerce marketplace websites is on the next level. It clearly shows people prefer to buy from multi-vendor marketplaces due to different reasons such as competitive pricing, assured product quality, better customer experience, etc.

Also, the above stats are inspiring many Entrepreneurs to start their online marketplace where they can invite local sellers or vendors to sell. If you are thinking to launch your multi-vendor marketplace, then here are some steps to launch a successful online eCommerce marketplace:


1. Market Research & Competition Analysis:

Analyzing the market and competition is the most crucial step. Gather information on your customer needs and analyze competitors’ market strategies. 

It will help you make an informed decision regarding choosing the right business niche. Think about what problems your online marketplace is going to solve.


2. Contact Different Sellers


You may consider this step in the later stages, but that is not the right approach. Reach out to sellers who are selling on other online marketplaces and ask them about the pain points and the benefits they are getting on selling there. Take the help of offline or online surveys to understand sellers’ requirements.


3. Documentation or Requirement Gathering:


Once you are done with the research part, create a requirement gathering document. You can hire a technical team for requirement gathering to save your time & efforts.


4. Pick the Right eCommerce Platform to Start:


Choosing the right technology solution is very important. You need to choose an eCommerce platform that comes with in-built eCommerce features and can be easily customized. There are two types of eCommerce platforms, i.e., SaaS & License eCommerce platforms. Licensed or on-premises eCommerce platforms are considered the best solution to start multi-vendor marketplaces because they allow more flexibility and control. However, if your budget is limited, SaaS (Software as a Service) eCommerce platforms are good to go.


5. Finding Investors:


You can skip this step if the budget is not a concern for you. However, I have seen that in many cases where the initial investment is high, clients are looking for investors. 


6. On-board Sellers after the launch:


Once your online marketplace is launched, the next crucial step is onboarding the sellers. Here are a few strategies you can follow to on-board the sellers on your online store with ease:

  • Make a list of sellers who are selling on other online marketplaces

  • Create an email template and describes the benefits of selling on your platform and pain areas of sellers that your online marketplace is addressing

  • Reach out to them on their social media profiles

  • Start Display ads on sites like eBay, or other sites where multiple sellers are selling the products

  • Also, you can use offline marketing techniques like Print Ads, Billboards, Tele calling, etc.


7. Invest in Online Marketing:


In this competitive world, you can’t expect sales just by setting up an online store. Digital marketing is one of the cost-effective marketing techniques to bring buyers to your online marketplace. In the early days, you can start with SEO (Search Engine Optimization) & Social media marketing. Google Ads are costly, invest in them wisely, and it is better to get help from an SEO or Adwords expert.


Advanced features to launch online eCommerce marketplace:






  • The homepage of the site should give a clear idea about your unique value proposition and competitive advantage. The theme should be highly captivating to the user, but make sure that your site’s theme doesn’t slow down the application. 

  • Add a search box with an autocomplete feature. After exploring the homepage, potential customers are most likely to use the search box to seek what they need. The images on the homepage should be at least 30 percent of the main categories of the page. 

  • There should be a diverse selection of product recommendations, and the home page must have fewer than 12 categories. If there are any special offers on your site then highlight them on the homepage. 

  • Feature, the popular items, new arrivals, and seasonal items. If possible, try to make dynamic borders which display more information and also engage the customers. Make sure that the theme doesn’t get slow by any request. 

  • The complete homepage must be highly responsive across all devices & browsers, and make sure every clickable item is working. If your website is any other language, then we may ask you to use a language plugin too.


Product Listing Page:


  • On the product listing page, the products should be aligned in a way that the customer can go through the maximum range of products within a minimum time. The images should be of high quality and must be relevant to the products. There should be an option of sorting and applying relevant filters (based on attributes assigned to the products).


Products detail page:


  • Obviously, on the product detail page, there should be complete details of the product with all the attributes which can be applied such as size, color pattern, quantity, variant, etc. Below the product details, there should be previous customers’ ratings & reviews of the product. You can also see a section of the Related Products at the end of the product details page.


Shopping Cart Page:


  • On the shopping cart page, there must be a list of all the products which are added into the cart along with their details like product name, vendor name, product image, quantity, and price. There must be a functionality of removing the item, updating the quantity, or editing the cart. The total amount should also be displayed. If you have included a Coupon code or discount here, then the user should be able to apply it here. In addition to these, “Continue shopping” and “Proceed to checkout” buttons are also required.


Login & Register Page:


  • On the Login & Register Page, there are simple fields such as Name, E-mail Id, Contact No, and other theme features plus choices to select the categories of interest while registering. There must be options for logging in and registering through social media login like Facebook, G-mail, or LinkedIn.


Checkout Page:


  • The checkout should take as much time as possible. Mostly a two steps checkout extension is used in which firstly you can choose the shipping method, add a delivery address, and then do the payment. After payment confirmation, there would be a seller contact detail and the estimated delivery date displayed.


Replacement and Return:


  • The customer would be able to replace or return the item through the request for order return or replace, request for a refund, chat, or return helpline.


My account (Customer Profile Page):


  • You can add basic features in the customer profile page like Account Dashboard, displaying the stats of the account, along with Request for Quote, Unsubscribe for newsletter options, and sections of My Wishlist and My Reviews.


All Requested Quotes:


  • For a B2B e-commerce marketplace, it is an essential feature to allow the user to access the listing of all requested quotes along with status.
