Get Real, Honest Maker Commentary

Sharetribe is the go to tool for creating a marketplace, particularly a two sided marketplace that involves, renting, services or goods sold. 

I’ve used Sharetribe to make and successfully launch a marketplace. What’s amazing about it is you can launch a professional looking and professionally secure platform like Airbnb, eBay or Fiverr in hours. 

If you are just starting out and wanting to verify an idea, Sharetribe is the way to go. It would take an enormous effort to build everything yourself. And because most marketplaces that are two sided are very tricky to start, you’ll want to save all your time developing for marketing, talking to your users, discovering how does your marketplace going to add value.

In addition, if your idea does take off, they have the flexibility to scale so that you are not boxed in. Very reasonable pricing and program called Sharetribe Flex  that allows you to have a development team create custom add-ons for your marketplace (or you can take your code with you and as an open source option).

Below I’ll be adding some of the best no code actual applications created by some insanely talented Makers who launched using Sharetribe as part of the side project stack.

Pros and Cons of Sharetribe

Positives

  • Secure
  • Uptime managed by a team that you don't have to worry about
  • Different payment options integrated
  • Good admin tools that allow you to track your revenue and users that sign up
  • Legal and regulatory compliance
  • Fantastic customer support
  • Not a better option to get started and validate your idea.

Negatives

  • Still a bit pricey for most entrepreneurs just starting out. It is reasonable to use the 30 days free plan but usually that is not always enough time to validate an idea. However, that being said there still isnt any better option on the market.
  • New updates are added to the marketplace, however in my experience I felt that they could move faster on important items like shopping cart (this was a feature I needed (2016) years ago). Overall, though it is very hard to complain because this marketplace no-code software has all the features you need to start and validate an idea and actually get revenue.

Marketplace

+ In 2016 launched a marketplace using Sharetribe. What I quickly learned was that using the no-code tool was by far the easiest part of launching an online business. I did so many things wrong launching my first business the only thing I did do right was choose Sharetribe. 

+ Sharetribe allowed me to launch with no issues or worries about secure payments, user log in, admin controls, or giving different permissions for the supply side of the marketplace to also easily access the application. 

– Getting custom features is possible, but way be important to you might not be the next best thing to make for all of the Sharetribe customers. Don’t expect this tool to be customized. It should be able to get you 80% of the way there, is my #1 recommended tool for launching a no-code marketplace and if you do hit a niche product market fit, then you can easily scale with Sharetribe.
