In recent years more and more people make purchases online, which is not only convenient, but also safe in current circumstances. There are two business models: a marketplace and an aggregator, via which we make online purchases. Each model has its particular features and advantages and disadvantages. They have some different specifics, such as:
Brand name. On a marketplace with its brand name goods are presented under various brand names.
Industry. Goods on a marketplace may belong to a variety of industries, when on an aggregator goods belong to the same one.
Price Range. Price range on a marketplace may vary significantly, when on an aggregator goods’ price level is approximately the same.
Quality Range. As with the previous point, quality range may vary on a marketplace, but on an aggregator goods of the same quality are presented.
