The fact that Obelink has started a marketplace is in line with the new trend in the e-commerce market. More and more successful websites open their website to other sellers and thus become a Marketplace. For example, Decathlon, a well-known sports chain, recently started an online marketplace. The fact that marketplaces offer opportunities is already apparent from the fact that Decathlon has a combined reach of more than 800 million unique visitors per year in all countries.
Companies that sell camping and outdoor products are increasingly using marketplaces to maintain or strengthen their competitive position and increase margins. This leads to more satisfied customers and more sales.
