Online marketplaces are additional channels to market and sell your products, but they also have some drawbacks you need to consider. It’s no different from handling sales from your own ecommerce channel. You’ll have to spend a considerable amount of time to build and maintain it.
If you’re looking to sell in multiple marketplaces, it’s a lot of work to list all your products on each platform. You must also be on top of your inventory and may even need to invest in additional storage when you see a large increase in sales volume.
More importantly, you’ll need to make sure you abide by the high service standards set by each marketplace which includes meeting fulfilment and delivery expectations and delivering excellent customer service. For example, sellers who don’t respond to buyer questions, or don’t handle returns and refunds on time are often penalised.
