|Description||Creating community marketplaces|
Marketplacr empowers the ordinary internet user to become a marketplace owner in charge of his or her own individualized, online marketplace for his or her online and real world communities.
Although the web has traditionally been populated with non-specialized marketplaces such as eBay or Craigslist, niche marketplaces such as Etsy are making their presence well known.Â The enormous consumer appetite for personalized sites and explosive revenue potential explains why these focused marketplaces are now popping up all over the web.
The problem with niche marketplaces today is getting started. Unless users build the system from the ground up, there is no way for them to create their own niche marketplaces. Before now, users had to be technologically savvy enough to program their own ecommerce marketplace in order to get started. But not anymore.
Thatâ€™s where Marketplacr comes in. Marketplacr is the Tumblr of online marketplaces. Users enter their basic info, customize their niche marketplace, and take it live. They invite their friends through social networking integration, and begin building their community.
Marketplacr empowers out users by providing them with two essential functions: marketplace creation and site management.
Marketplacr allows creators to make their own niche marketplace in under 5 minutes simply by entering basic information, picking a predesigned theme, and inviting friends to join through email, Google+, and Facebook integration.
The marketplace creator gets a percentage of all transactions that occur on the site. This percentage is adjustable by the creator.
Sample uses include textbook marketplaces at universities, painting/glassblowing/ceramics/sculpture marketplaces in growing art communities, designer jean sales in collaboration with online forums, and a lot more.
