Leveraging the value of online marketplaces
Growing your organisation’s reach and selling your products into new markets is hard. It carries many risks and can be very expensive, as you will need to find the right people with the right market knowledge, and then overcome the currency, payment and language barriers, the challenges of order fulfilment and distribution logistics, and the many new legal and accounting issues that are likely to be involved.
A much simplified initial step into these markets can however be provided by the online marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay, Spartoo, FlipKart and Alibaba etc. These organisations provide a clear route to market via their hundreds of millions of registered users, but with fewer pitfalls and market entry costs. And at the same time, they enable you to learn about the market and its potential, in an arm’s length, low cost of entry way.
We can advise you on the best marketplaces to use in each country, help you implement the technology required to integrate your systems with theirs, and show you how to simplify the logistics involved in order fulfilment.
