Our business model is based on shared success: We make money when MarketCube sellers make money. Marketplace revenue includes charging listing price to the seller segment of the market per item. The sellers pay only N100 per item for 10 items in a month which comes to N1000 a month, N3, 000 for 35 items for 3 Months and N6,500 for 75 items for 6 Months subscription. Once a sale occurs, we make money from commissions on each transaction as well as delivery fees. Also we make money from profit margins from our B2B offerings.
– Customer Segments
Buyers: Local & Diaspora People looking for all things handmade, vintage, and supplies.
Sellers: Business Owners, Entrepreneurs, Artisans, Home Business Owners etc.
– Problem worth solving
Artisans who sell what they make or curate, do not have an online platform dedicated to selling their craft to a wide audience, while shoppers looking for things they can’t find anywhere else but don’t know where to get them from.
