About the project Edit

Arcadier Marketplaces offers anyone with a sharing economy idea — individuals, nonprofits, communities, even established brands — a DIY, self-serve platform for marketplaces of all sizes. Its software allows users to choose from a multitude of appealing storefront designs, to set up and manage their sellers and buyers, orders, payments, product categorization, and more.

Arcadier Marketplaces is free to use throughout 2016.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

The ease of use and cost-effectiveness of Arcadier Marketplaces is unparalleled. Top that off with integral marketplace features and types — retail and goods, services, time/space, learning, private, etc. Each one is unique and specially designed to fit the needs of its utility.

Arcadier is the first Marketplace-as-a-Service (MaaS) company in Asia, and it is considered a global leader of marketplace technology. The dedicated team at Arcadier aims to push boundaries in online marketplaces, and change the world through one marketplace at a time. Thus, they continually improve their offerings and innovate based on user feedback.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Marketplaces can be used for a lot of good, from empowering entrepreneurs, raising funds for a nonprofit associations, to developing a tight-knit community.

Arcadier believes that the sharing economy drives the future due to its propensity to disrupt, connect, and improve efficiency. By reducing the cost of building a marketplace and democratizing its use, the team believes online marketplaces can reach causes and people who were not previously served by the traditional economy.

While designing and creating marketplaces used to be costly, especially for those with great ideas but not so much capital, with Arcadier it can be done without any coding and for much less.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

The retail and goods marketplace was launched in July 2016. Hundreds of marketplaces have since been created on Arcadier's platform, by entrepreneurs, hobbyists and local communities from around the world, including the United States, Brazil, Denmark, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Australia and so on.

Arcadier is planning the release of other marketplace types, as well as continual improvements and additional features. Have a charity project in mind? Create a marketplace for donated goods for a month, and you're free to turn it off the next, or when you've raised enough funds.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

Two PayPal senior executives decided that they wanted to help great causes, great people, and awesome products/services get discovered online.
