How does a Marketplace Website Work?

Amazon and Alibaba are famous examples of marketplace websites. Let’s take a look at how Amazon works. Byer or sellers create their accounts on the Amazon website and then sell or buy products.
Amazon charges a percentage from the seller on each item sold (sell). Here sellers take advantage of the Amazone existing customer base. There are two base models of shipping the goods/products to the buyer.
- FBM model (Fulfillment By Merchant)
- FBA (Fulfilment by Amazon)
Once the buyer completes the transaction, the products are stored and dispatched by the seller if they choose the FBM model (Fulfillment By Merchant). If they decide on the FBA (Fulfilment by Amazon) model, then the pick, packaging, shipping is all Amazon’s responsibility.
Marketplaces make money by charging buyers (vendors) and customers a commission. Some marketplaces demand a one-time membership fee, while others provide a mix of the two—different marketplaces charges. The commission rate varies from marketplace to marketplace. eBay, Amazon, and Daraz typically commission rates vary between 5 to 15%.
