'Het voordeel is dat je als eigenaar van een onlinemarktplaats geen risico draagt voor de inventaris, niet hoeft te denken aan wat je prijsstelling of je aanbod is, enzovoort. Daarmee kun je redelijk moeiteloos en tegen vrijwel nul kosten je assortiment uitbreiden.'

Livestream Selling Is 'QVC on Steroids,' and It Turned This Alabama Startup Into a Billion Dollar Business

In just the first half of 2021, almost $6 billion has been raised by aggregator businesses, observed Juozas Kaziukėnas, the founder of ecommerce research firm Marketplace Pulse. Flush with cash, these acquirers are increasingly on the hunt in China. "At a certain size of an aggregator ... it started to make sense to expand your view into looking at sellers globally. Because for an aggregator, the most important thing is where they are selling, not where they are based," Kaziukėnas told Protocol.
