Online marketplaces have become household names and a part of our daily lives. An online marketplace is where many third-party sellers can list their goods for sale, then the marketplace facilitates the purchase between the buyer and seller. Using a marketplace to shop usually helps customers research vendor options, prices, and other variables easily because all the purchasing options are in one place.
Since online marketplaces, such as Amazon, eBay, and Airbnb have revolutionized how we shop at home and in our daily lives, what is an industrial marketplace and how can it benefit you at work?
