Sharetribe's platform makes it easy to develop and deploy a robust marketplace quickly.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Sharetribe provides a hosted marketplace platform, including PayPal and Stripe payment gateways, that my company eXcesS Capacity leverages to rapidly develop, deploy and market a web property where businesses rent, sell and buy underutilized resources.

Pros

Sharetribe's marketplace platform incorporates essential functionality such as workflow, listing customization, notifications, PayPal and Stripe payment gateways, ratings and reviews, and much more. Sharetribe's customer support is very knowledgeable and responsive to my questions and requests. The Sharetribe Marketplace Academy is informative about how marketplaces should be built, deployed and marketed.

Cons

While there are gaps in functionality, the features provided with a product that has evolved since 2008 are rich. Sharetribe support is interested and responsive to its users enhancement suggestions.

Save your time and money

Reviewed 3 years ago

Landing pages are so important for any website. Your options to have one with Sharetribe is to pay them a ridiculous fee to host one page, I agree with reviewer [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], it really is a joke. Their landing page design looks cheap and clunky, customisation is extremely limited, you can’t even change the font from white to black (unless you are using a white background, in which case...

Pros

Quite easy to set up if you have little technical knowledge.

Cons

In the past 8 months, I have received misleading advice, I have been told a number of things are possible with Sharetribe Go using custom script, then after speaking with five separate developers, I now realise that this is in fact untrue. On numerous occasions, I have had to chase multiple times for a response, because apparently my emails randomly went into their spam folder. I have also received...

Vendor response

Thank you for your candid review and for sharing your poor experience. We apologize that your experience with us did not meet your expectations. We have learned from this situation and will continue to be particularly cautious in how we communicate about the possibilities and limitations of custom script. We hope that you can find a way to continue your project in the way you best see fit, on a platform that provides the best growth environment for your marketplace. We wish you the best of luck. - The Sharetribe team

Sharetribe platform allowed me to build marketplace in just few hours

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Simplicity, security and scalability of the platform. payment gateways are easy to configure. creating managing categories is easy. Availability calendar is best suitable for booking marketplace. Feedback system allows users to leave feedback to build trust. Sharetribe is great for someone who wanted to test the minimum viable product marketplace idea and scale it further.

Cons

lack of API's and custom themes. Bulk upload products would be good for large inventory. lack of third party plugins third party plugins

Sharetribe really simplifies our activity at ShuFu!

Pros

Sharetribe is very easy to use for anyone, and offers a great and extremely friendly customer support.

Perfect for testing an idea with new features coming up all the time

Reviewed 5 years ago

fast and easy test of a marketplace idea

Pros

I started using Sharetribe in late 2016, since then 3 things have made me stick with it: 1) easy sign-up. The no.1 thing I cared about was the signup process for my users, which is really easy and fast. Testing your idea without an easy to use software would be impossible. 2) functionality. Initially, the product was much more limited but the team is rolling out new features constantly. 3) no lock ins. By the time you decide to move to a customized solution, your database comes along

Cons

- Functionality upgrades are not very fast. If you need something specific you need to pray that other admins will need it in order for Sharetribe to build it - pricing is expensive, semi-annual billing offers a good reduction but pricing could be based on transactions (use of the product), not on user signup.

Powerful and user-friendly platform for peer-to-peer rentals

Reviewed 5 years ago

Easy to get started with a community project without high upfront investment in a platform

Pros

- Very intuitive and nice looking (simple, yet all all necessary features to convince your customer) - Powerful payment system(s) integrated (Stripe & PayPal) - Robust: neither admins nor users can make mistakes when using it

Cons

- Customization possibilities are very limited (including branding, especially of the outgoing emails) - Open source version does not contain the most crucial elements - Pricing is driven by number of users rather than by number of transactions. So you may end up paying a lot even if the business is not taking off

Quick to market deployment - Then stay where you are

Reviewed 2 years ago

We needed to integrate insurance APIs with our Sharetribe installation but it was not possible unless we spent hefty amounts on FLEX package. There is no functionality in GO version to work with even basic third party plugins. We investigated FLEX version and Community Version and both were really expensive for modifications.

Pros

Great out-of-the-box functionality Most required features built-in Fast launching time for P2P marketplaces Easy Stripe integration Free Community version can handle modifications and APIs

Cons

Expensive FLEX version may not be suitable for startups Unable to integrate third party plugins with GO version Unable to change P2P sharing type and structure Unable to modify Stripe account

Very good starting point for testing a marketplace concept.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Easy setup, gained months using Sharetribe instead of setting up the marketplace from scratch.

Pros

Easy set up. Great customer support. Free 30-day trial. Reasonable pricing. Lots of tutorials to get started. Great articles in the Sharetribe Academy to help you grow your community and business.

Cons

Limited customisation features. Access to <script> tag to write custom javascript code allows some customisation, but it is not ideal because the code has to be constantly tested and regularly updated with evolutions of the core Sharetribe code, and furthermore this option is reserved for developers. Limited marketing features to interact with client database. Limited payment gateways.

Sharetribe Best Marketplace MVP Solution

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Sharetribe is by far the best platform to build a marketplace MVP with. I've built 10+ marketplaces with the platform and even Studiotime, Airbnb of music studios. It's still on Sharetribe and has been modified as we've scaled to suit the needs of our marketplace

Cons

Lack of API (right now) so customization and modifying can be a bit tricky, but certainly is possible.

Perfect starting point for a new marketplace

Reviewed 4 years ago

Sharetribe was the best way to start out for us, as it allowed us to see our business concept in action, and to define exactly what we did and did not need. Customer service was hands down the best I've experienced. We always got a response within hours of enquiring, always helpful, always knowledgeable, always friendly! Thank you!

Pros

Sharetribe's best asset: the trading side of the marketplace is sorted! We didn't have to worry about how to connect sellers and buyers, or any of the tough stuff like $$ transactions, commission, or privacy & security around transations etc.

Cons

We ended up opting for a custom solution instead of Sharetribe (after a good year of defining our strategy and goals with Sharetribe), purely because we needed some specific functionality for our marketplace. Limitations were also in the content manager, and sorting / display abilities within products offered.

I recommend Sharetribe to someone who wants to launch new Marketplace without spending lot of money!

Reviewed 5 years ago

It allowed me to create a Marketplace really easily, fastly, and without spending a lot of money!

Pros

The cost is very low. It's very easy to use and configure. The team support is really nice and reactive.

Cons

It's still impossible to import a .csv file or other format to create listings in one shot. I have some customers who have hundreds of listings to create but of course they don't want to create it manually!

Easy and the system has most important features. However, more customization is needed.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Easy to use.

Pros

Easy to start with, no coding skills needed. I like the ''FAQ'' section that helps me to implement needed features for example Stripe and Facebook etc.

Cons

It would be great to have possibility to fix the landing page by myself, so that it would not be necessary to make a specific order to Sharetribe. I am willing to pay for customized landing page, but building it myself would make the process more fluent.
