Becoming your own (niche) marketplace can be part of your multichannel growth
strategy. The main prediction in e-commerce is, that only one or a few dominant (niche) marketplaces per industry or product segment will survive. It is no longer a question if they will come, but rather who will claim these positions and when. This means that a number of major players will swallow up the competition. NextChapter focuses on marketplace solution software that helps you become your own (niche) marketplace.
Niche vs. wide range
When you choose to become a marketplace yourself, you can decide between a broad or niche offering in products. Both options can be perfectly realized with the NextChapter platform. You develop your webshop into a multivendor sales platform. If you do that with a niche offering, you can even claim authority and specialization.
Open vs. closed
A logical growth path is that your current webshop becomes a closed marketplace and from there evolves into an open marketplace. On a closed marketplace you choose the partners, product range, delivery times, etc. And with an open marketplace your suppliers can register themselves directly, at any time.
