Platforms for Marketplace

by donnamackey83 In reply to what platform is needed t ...

All popular eCommerce platforms are capable of using as a marketplace or classified site. But at some certain points, they all have some limitation so choosing a platform totally depends on the required criteria and business goals. For example,

For Magento;
You need a team of developers for maintenance and overcoming complexities.
For Shopify;
Begin a self-hosted platform exempts you from eCommerce Development processes but, you won't be able to customize it at the end level.
For WooCommerce;
It is easier to customize and you can add new functionalities by simply adding plugins.

And Now for creating a Marketplace on WooCommerce, you can use Dokan or WCFM plugins.
If you're still unsure about the platform selection or want to build customized solution then you reach eCommerce Development agencies like https://codup.co/

Wordpress is suitable to manage thousands of ads, then the answer needs to be in two parts: because Wordpress is just the platform, the theme or skin you apply on your website will determine whether it can manage what you need it to do. But in my experience, yes, as long as there is a theme and plugins to handle what you need, Wordpress is an extremely fluid and scalable platform.

The second part of the answer has to do with the hosting you choose to run your Wordpress website on. If your hosting can handle the amount of traffic you estimate, and most certainly can because of the packages they offer, you’re all set!
