What is a service marketplace?

Service marketplaces connect buyers and sellers through the sale of online services. An example would be booking a heating technician through 360travaux.com or, renting tools and property using WeFarmUp.

Cocolabs has designed more than 80 service marketplaces in some 20 countries.
of sectors: the marketplace model seduces and modernizes all industries.

From the time when service marketplaces first emerged in the early 2000s, e-commerce has revolutionized the way we buy things. They first began selling only products, however, services have begun to take over marketplaces now. Over 70% of the top 100 marketplaces designed by Andreessen Horowitz are service marketplaces.

A robust technical solution that will meet your business expectations

Indicate the geolocation

An important criterion for deciding which service to book is its location.
Multiple geolocation features are included in our service marketplaces, such as service location, and service coverage area to facilitate improved connections between the buyer and seller.

Calendar management

The price of a service can change over time, based on a variety of factors, so we have made it possible for the seller to set a specific price according to a specific moment. A service provider will likely have bookings made outside the platform, so our solution allows the provider and the buyer to synchronize their calendars to avoid any problems.

An optimized search engine

Our search engine leads the customer to the right supplier based on a variety of factors including location, ratings, and supplier behavior so that we can ensure the buyer finds exactly what they are looking for!

Adapted business models

Cocorico offers many different business models so that we can meet the different requirements of service marketplaces. Choosing the right business model can be a difficult choice. Do you want to use a commission-based strategy to facilitate customer acquisition or do you want a subscription-based model to build customer loyalty? Fortunately for you, we can help you with that decision. Contact one of our project managers to discover the solution that best suits your needs!

Adapted payment solutions

Service marketplaces might require complex payment methods. For example, with a rental marketplace you may need escrow payments, and with a service marketplace you may need to be able to accept multiple currencies. For this reason, Cocolabs has partnered with different payment service providers so we can meet all the requirements of your service marketplace.
