What do you like best?

They are always there to help and everyone on their team (even the CEO) is very involved in making their users' experience enjoyable. I also like their solution so much, because using sharetribe I had the chance to test a very quick MVP without losing money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing ! They're the best solution for marketplaces out there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're considering a solution for building a marketplace, then you're in the right place! Sharetribe is the perfect tool to build an MVP, test your product/market fit, and even start scaling without having to worry about the techy part (I see you, non-tech founders ;-) ) Have questions or bugs to be resolved? No worries, their friendly team is there for you (almost) 24/7... Another strength they have is that they include in their roadmap what the users ask and vote for, so you can sure you're building on top of a tested back-end for different marketplaces of all sizes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I developed the MVP of my startup without losing money with a costly development.

It also helps to have a "tech" solution without recruiting a "tech team" for early-stage startups.

I paused for now (Covid related) but planning to come back using their FLEX solution which will allow me to improve the service for BabyHop members and also to test a new business model without having to "break something specifically built" at the beginning. I love the flexibility you have when using Sahretribe. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Simple enough to use for non-technical founders. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Ridiculously expensive hosting for what is essentially a very basic not very customisable product. A landing page is essential otherwise customers have no idea what you do, but the cost of hosting one page is almost as much as hosting the whole platform. What you get for paying that price is not worth it, it is a very basic, cheap looking, barely customisable landing page. The alternative is to host your own landing page, which is not a viable option for SEO. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is much easier, more cost effective in the longer term and quicker to self host the platform and be free to customise to your specific needs. If you decide to try it out, go for the monthly subscription, as you will not want to be locked in for 6 months. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

None, I only created problems by using Sharetribe. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Sharetribe has been the best turnkey platform for building marketplace MVP's in my experience. I built Studiotime with it (www.studiotime.io), in addition to 10+ other marketplace MVP's. The platform can also be customized using front-end development with the hosted version as you scale. The team is also great and supports their customers.

Feel free to reach out to me if you have questions about the capabilities of the product, how I've modified/customized it to suite my needs, and how it might be suitable to you. You can see the Studiotime case study using Sharetribe at http://bit.ly/2gXICOV Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Due to the lack of an API (currently), the hosted version is a bit tricky to modify but can certainly be done. This does require development/code skills, but is still much more cost efficient then building a custom marketplace. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I built the Airbnb for music studios Studiotime (www.studiotime.io) with Sharetribe. Sharetribe has allowed me to build an MVP as quickly as possible, focus on market validation, and easily scale the platform from the tech side. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
