Imagine this: You go to sleep at night, thinking about the vacation bills that have piled up since the last month. You are worried about meting them. Where is the money going to come from? Your regular salary is spent in meeting the normal household expenses. There is hardly any money to spare. You go to bed all worried and when you wake up, there is a wad of bills lying next to your pillow. You are thrilled and you count the money, receiving another pang of surprise when you discover that it is a few hundred bucks more than you needed. And the same process repeats, day after day, everyday. That is sort of what having a successful e-commerce marketplace feels like.
Well, almost. You will have to work to set up your shop of course, more so in the beginning than later, when you can put things more or less on autopilot. However, you can manage alongside a full time job, or even your studies.
And the best part is the fact that the work involved in creating and maintaining a marketplace is interesting in the utmost. You get to interact with a variety of vendors, collaborate with them, moderate them, and keep an eye on their sales — all the while making a commission on every purchase.

Like Cooking? Start an e-commerce marketplace for dishes and recipes:
The job is even more interesting and will hardly feel like any work at all, if your e-commerce platform is about selling something you are already passionate about. Whether it is computer games, or magazines, or novels, or the fantastic tea that is found only in your state — if you like it, chances are that others in the world would like to buy it as well.
This will make your duties more interesting but also ensure that you can use your hobby or your passion and turn it into the source of a side income. And if the business picks up and you find yourself enjoying it?
Well, in that case, only the sky is the limit for how much money you can make. In case you are wondering about the market potential — the electronic commerce, or e-commerce market is worth around $22.1 trillion. (Source: ET)
That is a pretty massive pie and you don’t need all that large of a slice to start raking in money like snow in the winters.
Looking for another shot at greatness?
Don’t tell me you enjoy your 9 to 5 job. Okay, so maybe you do. But unless you work as a product tester for Jack Daniels, you probably don’t see yourself doing the same thing until you are 60. For one, repetitive tasks are mind-numbingly boring.
Secondly, there is an automatic ceiling that comes with every job. There are probably millions of other professionals in your field and you can go only so far. Finally, where is the thrill, the adventure, in generating sales for someone else?
With your own e-commerce marketplace, you get to decide the number of hours you are going to be putting in. You get to decide if lunch break is at 12 in the morning, or 4 in the evening. And the best part? The business keeps running and making you money even when you are catching a few zzzs at night.
And, after a certain amount of time and effort you can put things on autopilot and enjoy the fruits of your labour — whether by embarking on a tour of the world, or by settling down on a nice farmhouse away from the city.
And let’s not forget the sense of adventure and the chance to set up an asset using your own bare hands. Given enough time and effort, you could even become a job creator. Like we said earlier, only the sky is the limit.
But it is so hard to set up an e-commerce marketplace, you say?
After all, there are so many elements like listing and cataloguing products, attracting customers, collecting payments, shipping goods, and managing vendors involved.
