Online trading is a significant element of modern business, showing a constant growth and fantastic ever-growing results over the last several years. Currently, a customer can find and buy almost all available products online. Plenty of global companies have already created virtual analogs of brick-and-mortars in their hope for increased revenues. But not all vendors can allot enough funds to launch and maintain their standalone ecommerce projects, as total expenses sometimes can be even higher than in the traditional business. Merchants understand that only a strong cooperation can save their businesses from the collapse and allow them reach target goals. Very often a team of independent retailers decides to take advantage of a common ecommerce space called a multiple vendor marketplace.

A large virtual mall with many separate departments is a good idea to draw customers' attention. Imagine that you could unite plenty of retailers with different products beneath the same roof. Do you understand how large customer base you will get? The better could be only the opportunity to build a monopoly at one of the segments of online global marketplaces. You can say what a fantasy, but from now on, it is not anymore!
