Marketplace C2C: Facilitate exchanges between private individuals

Find out how Cocolabs can help you create a dynamic and secure platform to facilitate direct exchanges between private individuals.

What is a C2C marketplace?

A C2C (“consumer to consumer”) marketplace is an online platform that facilitates exchanges between private individuals, enabling them to sell, buy or exchange goods or services directly with each other. The platform offers a secure space where users can post ads, get in touch with other users and conclude transactions in complete confidence.

The rise of C2C marketplaces

The rise of C2C marketplaces is fueled by the growing importance of the sharing economy and transactions between individuals. Consumers are increasingly looking to buy products or access services directly from other individuals, which has led to the growing popularity of C2C platforms. These marketplaces offer a convenient and cost-effective way to buy, sell or exchange a variety of goods and services, contributing to the emergence of a thriving collaborative economy.
