Complete Payments Solution for Online Marketplaces Introduced

Share this post:


An online ‘marketplace’ is a centralized trade exchange for buyers and sellers of goods and services managed by the marketplace operator. Well-known marketplaces include services like Avvo for legal advice, Fiverr for creative services, TaskRabbit for small jobs or Thumbtack for local services work.

As a marketplace provider, accepting payments can be daunting. When you collect on behalf of all your participants it is critical that the correct amounts be distributed to the correct parties at the correct time to ensure trust and scalability for your marketplace.
