The future of e-commerce
Large-scale e-commerce marketplaces have dominated the global economy. Amazon and Alibaba are obvious examples that have transformed how goods are sold online in a remarkably short span of time. On the plus side, these platforms offer unprecedented opportunities to small-scale operations that may not have the capital to promote their products through traditional means—by selling on a public marketplace, these small stores gain access to a self-selecting customer base.
Unfortunately, online marketplaces ask for a large chunk of the revenue made on their platforms in return for the infrastructure they provide, and often limit the branding opportunities for each individual store. This puts up-and-coming e-commerce companies in a difficult bind. Do they sell on a marketplace, taking advantage of its infrastructure and existing customer base, while giving up on most branding opportunities? Or, do they try to build their own customer base and brand, sacrificing those marketplace perks for potentially higher profits in the long term?
This is where online store builders come in. Online store builders provide some of the infrastructure of a big marketplace, while allowing business owners to brand their experience and build lasting relationships with their customers. They provide easy website building tools that can be invaluable when you need to create a sustainable brand, and they have robust back-end infrastructure that can help with content management and security. However, these builders are often plagued by gaps in capability, unwieldy integrations, and the need to jump between multiple platforms that don’t speak well with each other.
