C2C MODEL

Sharing economy is a great success driver nowadays. People seek not only for product consumption but also for trading their own items. Even if now it seems to you that the share of b2c goods consumption is higher, think about such things:

  • it often happens that amateurs\professionals in communities are better versed in the subject area than regular retail consultants
  • Such users often have unique products to share with others, which allows to surprise people around with individuality
  • The product can be chosen individually, which is ideal for meeting your special needs.

To all these advantages, add the fact that private sellers sell goods at a lower price in comparison with large trading networks. All this makes the c2c model very attractive to customers and if there is a marketplace that can realize all the needs of both buyers and customers, this business can be extremely profitable. Our team has been developing such solutions for a long time. We know exactly what customers need in this or that industry, and we can share with you our experience to make a marketplace, which will certainly become one of the best platforms available now. For you, we have prepared three packages of services, within which you can implement the ideas:

  • Basic offer - suitable for you to implement comprehensive stable solutions with a limited budget.
  • Standard offer - stands for additional features with social media API integration included.
  • Custom offer - the best option for implementing your special needs and the needs of your customers.
