Compare Sharetribe vs. Mirakl

What is the best marketplace software, Sharetribe or Mirakl? This article helps you compare things like pricing, features, and scalability – and find the best marketplace builder for you.

Mirakl focuses on helping large retailers add a marketplace to their existing e-commerce offering. Its main competitive advantage is the number of integrations it has to existing e-commerce solutions. Mirakl also offers comprehensive tooling for large enterprises. The pricing reflects this: Mirakl's price point makes the solution inaccessible for most startups and small businesses.

For an entrepreneur (or an intrapreneur) looking to launch a new marketplace, Sharetribe is a better option. Sharetribe lets you launch your platform quickly and with an extremely low budget. It also allows you to scale your marketplace and add an infinite amount of unique features without breaking the bank.

In terms of marketplace type, Mirakl can be a great Sharetribe alternative if you're building the next Amazon or Alibaba – and if you can afford the price. Mirakl focuses heavily on B2C and B2B e-commerce, where physical products are being shipped and sold. If you're building a peer-to-peer product marketplace like Etsy or eBay, a rental platform like Airbnb, or a platform dealing with complex services like Fiverr or Rover, Sharetribe's functionality likely matches your needs better.
