Marketplaces, as retail intermediaries, appeared on the Russian e-Commerce market only a few years ago, and today their popularity is high. Being a platform that provides easy placement and management of the product range, marketplace is widely used by both producers of goods (as a channel of the first level) and online stores working with manufacturers under supply contracts (in this case, in the distribution channel chain, the marketplace plays the role of an intermediary of the second level). The popularity of this type of intermediary is due to the relative simplicity of the sales organization, the absence of costs and risks of self-promotion in the electronic environment. However, the use of this intermediary is relevant only within the framework of a single-channel or multi-channel distribution strategy, which is more effective for consumer goods, and is not yet possible within the omnichannel marketing strategy.
