Benefits of e-commerce marketplace platform development

Today, the concept of marketplace continues to get a foothold in everyday life. From 2014 to 2016, Jack Ma’s Alibaba announced an incredible 50% annualized growth rate, while Jeff Bezos’ Amazon has grown a 55.8% annually. The estimates put global e-commerce retail sales at an astounding $4 trillion by 2020, comprising almost 15% of projected retail spending.

Apiko team helps retailers, companies, and brands build a multi-vendor online web and mobile marketplace platform to create a single touch point for various business owners and consumers.
