As web shoppers discover the breadth of products and lower prices often available on top marketplaces—particularly the ones operated by Amazon and Alibaba—it’s forcing all e­retailers to develop more aggressive marketplace strategies, including offering many more products on existing marketplaces or launching marketplaces of their own by inviting other merchants to sell on their websites.
