About the webinar “How do I start an online marketplace?”

NextChapter eCommerce is a leading eCommerce SaaS platform for multichannel selling and becoming a marketplace itself. During this webinar, our CEO Michiel Bestebroer talks about his vision on e-commerce based on his years of experience in the industry.

The big prediction in eCommerce is that there will be room for only one or a few dominant (niche) marketplaces per industry or product segment. It is therefore no longer a question of whether these will come, but when and who will claim these positions. That means a number of big players will swallow up the competition. It is therefore important that you determine where you want to go with your company. And how you can respond to this development in time.

In the webinar, Michiel addresses the Why, What & How questions about becoming a marketplace yourself. So what's going on around you? What does the client want? And what is the best strategy for you?
