What is an online marketplace?

An online marketplace platform is a website (or sometimes a mobile app) that aggregates inventory from multiple providers(sellers) in one place. It also lets customers (buyers) engage in transactions with the providers. A transaction on a marketplace can mean a product purchase, a calendar booking, a message to request a quote, or anything else that leads to an exchange of value between the customer and the provider. Airbnb, Uber, eBay, Etsy, and Upwork are examples of popular online marketplaces.
