A locally run online marketplace is the best of both worlds because it supports local businesses and meets customers where they are already spending time — at home, online.
Customers can shop local, with one checkout, and feel good knowing they support a small business in their community or a place they love. Plus, the money from every purchase stays local.
Member Marketplace, Inc. works with Small Business Development Centers (America’s SBDC), State and Local Economic Development Organizations, Chambers of Commerce, and other member-based groups to help small businesses expand their sales presence online through a shared selling platform built for their community or organization.
Under one e-commerce marketplace, the supporting organization can focus communication campaign and marketing efforts to one website, bringing exposure to all of their member businesses while making it easy for consumers to find local products and services in one place.
We manage the marketplace for you
Our partners are looking for a turn-key solution to help their businesses sell online together. We will prepare a proposal that serves your members and aligns with your overall goals.
E-commerce for your community
We create an e-commerce marketplace website that is reflective of your members or community. Depending on budget, websites can be built on our subdomain or on a domain of your choosing, and customized to fit your goals and needs.
Our team coaches and trains vendors on the platform capabilities with live webinars, video tutorials, knowledgebase resources, and direct phone and email support.
Customers can shop with ease
As businesses and their products and services are added to the site, this provides a window to your community, allowing customers to find, shop, and support your member businesses from anywhere.
