Sharetribe Console is the user interface for the marketplace operator – you. Console is where you build and manage your marketplace.

Console is divided into two main sections: Manage and Build.

Manage section

The Manage section is for managing user-generated content: Users (each customer and provider in your marketplace is a user), Listings (listings describe the products and services your providers are offering or your customers are requesting), Transactions (a transaction in Sharetribe is an attempt at a value exchange between a customer and a provider – for example, an order, a calendar booking, or a conversation thread), and Reviews (after a transaction, the customer and the provider can review each other).

Build section

The Build section is where you build your marketplace by modifying its content and configuration. It's divided into the following subsections.


In General, you can change general settings like the name and domain of your marketplace. Learn more about general settings.


In Content, you can create and edit content pages, edit the user interface texts of your dynamic pages (pages that contain user-generated content, like the search page, the listing page, or the profile page), and edit the content of your email notifications. Learn more about editing content.


In Design, you can adjust the branding and layout of your marketplace. Learn more about adjusting design.


In Users, you can add user fields to capture additional information about your customers and providers. Learn more about User fields.


In Listings, you can change the configurations related to your listings: what kind of data is collected for each listing, how listing search works, and how customers can interact with the listings. Learn more about listing configurations.


In Transactions, you can change the configurations related to your transactions, such as the commission you charge for each payment between a customer and a provider and the minimum transaction size. Learn more about transaction configurations.


In Integrations, you can connect your marketplace to a third-party software solution to enable things like payments and analytics. Learn more about integrations.


In Advanced, you can find developer platform features that are needed when you're customizing your marketplace with code. Learn more about advanced features.


When you're in Console, you're always in the context of a specific environment. You can have three environments: Test, Live, and Dev. Each environment has its own unique set of user-generated data, content and configurations. The environments ensure that you can easily preview and test your work-in-progress changes with test users and listings while keeping your Live marketplace intact and preventing your users from seeing test data.
