Overview
Good

It's a complete package of solutions that any entrepreneur or enterprise may need to set up marketplaces. If you use it you won't need to manage multiple service providers for your online marketplace, which can make business significantly easy.

Bad

The only disappointing part of Arcadier is that their paid packages are not available as of now. You can get either the basic package or enterprise package. Hopefully it'll change soon.

Overall

Despite the the lack of mid-sized paid packages, Arcadier Marketplaces is a very promising solution for entrepreneurs who want to set up online marketplaces, thanks to its long list of features.

Detailed Review

If someone wants to start an e-commerce business, marketplace model has become a proven model for it worldwide. It works because it not only helps in bringing down operating costs, but also in scaling quickly. No surprise e-commerce sites around the globe prefer this model over warehousing based model or hybrid model.

However, there are some challenges that come with this model: you need to manage far more services and far more suppliers than the warehousing based model. Therefore, in order to create an online marketplace that doesn't give bad experience to the customers, your need:

  • A very reliable (and easy to use) system to manage the items that are added to your marketplace by sellers;
  • A reliable order management system;
  • A shopping cart solution;
  • And another system to help you resolve the grievances that come with this model.

This is just a very basic list of what you need to be running smoothly in order to put up a positive experience through your online marketplace. Depending on the type of marketplace you're willing to create, the number of systems and services in this list may increase.

At this point, you must be wondering, isn't there a single service provider who can integrate all these systems for me? Is there be a better way? Fortunately, there is. It's called Arcadier Marketplaces.
