Pros: It was very easy to set up the platform - we could quickly get started and and test different options. the concept of sending out daily/weekly updates of news on the site is great feature to keep people attention.
The Open source platform was probably the strongest reason why we choose the software in the beginning as it gave us confidence. None of us had an IT-background and it allowed us to start very quickly without a major investment and financial risk.

Cons: We have a closed marketplace - new members enter by invitation. However a high % of emails from Sharetribe are rejected ending in the Spam folder. We always pair an invitation generated from The Sharetribe Platform with a welcome mail send from our own e-mail system. However many invitations fall through and the automated e-mails about news on the site very often ends in the Spamfolder.
It is a cumbersome work checking and re-inviting potential new members as well as we are loosing members as they no longer see the daily/weekly mails !
Would like to have more options for personalizing - ei developers within the Sharetribe team that can help us adding more functionalities and still being able to use the software. A service that we are prepared to pay for.

Pros: Ease of use. Customer support is very quick to respond as well. Sharetribe offers a service that takes most of the technical issues out of launching a peer to peer marketplace.

Cons: As an early user I felt a lot of important features were initially lacking, most of which have been added. I do feel that a landing page that isn't an additional recurring monthly fee should be part of the package however.

Pros: User experience is key in marketplaces. And Sharetribe's UX demonstrates a clear understanding of the common (and not so common) use cases for the supply and demand sides of marketplaces. Ease of set up and implementation. The customer support is excellent.

Cons: Lack of an integrated CMS. If you are trying to build a marketplace from nothing, it really requires tools to drive organic growth/awareness/adoption of your site. That's not to say that you cannot set up a wordpress or medium blog to support your Sharetribe marketplace. You can. However, configuration has to be done at the less-than-ideal subdomain route (which has some SEO downsides).

Overall: Near-instantaneous MVP of my music instrument marketplace concept.

Pros: We looked at various marketplace software options before deciding to go with Sharetribe. From the outside some options like Wordpress Plugins look even a lot better than Sharetribe for example regarding functionalities. So we did several test trials. Our experience was not a single competitor of Sharetribe kept the promises made on their landing pages. So our experience from the start with Sharetribe was that they keep their promises and only promise what they are actually capable of delivering with very good quality. And the quality & robustness of the software has been simple outstanding. Besides their customer support is truly amazing and their marketplace academy extremely helpful. Overall I firmly believe choosing Sharetribe was the single best decision in our company history so far.

Cons: Every marketplace is different, so the requirements can probably vary quite a bit for every marketplace entrepreneur. So chances are high that you will miss a few functionalities. Nevertheless the Sharetribe team is constantly updating their software und the gaps are getting less with every month. In the end though having one functionality or not wasn't the most important thing in building our marketplace. For us building trust has been so far the most important factor and if your users trust you than they are also willing to overlook some of the current missing features.

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.

Overall: Easy to use.

Pros: This software is very user friendly with an excellent review system. I also love the split payment system where buyers pay for goods to a user and I receive my commission instantly. I have always received excellent customer support where most inquiries are responded to within a few hours. Support have always been polite, friendly and very helpful. The look of the site is first class and far more superior than alternative software. I also like the way that new features are added at no extra cost. You can also email all users within the system and also download them to add to an external mailing list.

Cons: The customer service is of such a high standard that any issues I have had where resolved within a short time. There are some features that I would find beneficial such as having a facility for a discount code which I have suggested and hopefully will be implemented in the future.

Overall: It makes things so easy where users can place their own profile and listings. There is also no need to chase up commissions from users since these are taken out automatically after each transaction.

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.

Sharetribe is easy to use, help is fantastic and with a few additional features will be unbeatable

Pros: Very simple to use, requires little or no technical knowledge and it looks great. The search by location feature is a great addition and you can be up and running in less than an hour.

Cons: For products it needs a few additional features to be 5 stars, such as CSV product uploads, a rewards feature and the ability to handle returns through the platform.

Overall: It's great for pretotyping and the help team are brilliant, even helped me over an issue with Facebook login on a Sunday!

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

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