Digital marketplaces and the future of eCommerce
Digital marketplaces are dominating the eCommerce landscape and the opportunities for businesses are growing. Within retail eCommerce sales marketplaces now have a leading position over traditional direct web sales, accounting for more than half of global sales currently, and are predicted to grow to 59% of all eCommerce by 2027. Multi-vendor marketplace platforms enable merchants to set up portals featuring their unique inventories and services in a trusted location that can draw together thousands of merchants. However, their continued success increasingly relies on democratizing payments that accelerate growth and win customers to enable small businesses to thrive in a highly competitive environment.
