Get started with selling online

Research shows that 1.66 trillion USD (£1.29 trillion) was spent in 2018 on online marketplaces, which accounts for 50% of all global online sales.

Although Amazon, eBay and Etsy are the most famous global online stores, there are lots of other online marketplaces that serve specific sectors and countries.

Generally, online marketplaces operate on a subscription or listing fee basis, but many offer assistance with order fulfilment and deliveries, making cross-border trade more accessible. Some also charge a percentage commission on final order values, which also needs to be considered when implementing your pricing strategies.

We have created a guide to the most popular online marketplaces in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and Americas.
