Marketplaces are everywhere.
It might be makers selling their creations on Etsy or Tindie, individuals renting out their properties on Airbnb or Getaround, or service providers pooling their resources together on Uber, Fiverr or Handy.
In all these cases, online marketplaces provide an effective way to save costs by skipping the middleman, while maintaining convenience and upholding quality. This new economy is more personal (we often interact directly with individual providers instead of faceless corporations) and sustainable (by using our existing assets more effectively we can reduce waste and emissions). We believe that this collaborative economy will be the next big revolution, and we want to be one of the bedrocks that supports and powers it.
Creating an online marketplace used to be
an expensive and time-consuming task.
You had to hire developers who would spend months building a marketplace before releasing a first version. Building payment systems, geolocation and messaging is complicated.
Thanks to Sharetribe, this is no longer the case. Sharetribe makes it easy for anyone to create their own marketplace website without any programming knowledge. The setup only takes a few minutes, and the cost is a fraction of what a developer would charge. Sharetribe works all over the world, in multiple languages and currencies. We want to make online marketplace technology accessible and affordable to anyone.
