Built-in and ready to go
The Burst Marketplace provides a mechanism for decentralized, peer-to-peer selling. It is no longer necessary to rely on external market sites that charge commissions for facilitating your business. Any type of merchandise can be bought and sold. The marketplace is particularly suited for digital goods such as software, music, and videos.
No intermediaries – real peer-to-peer
Anyone can list anything on the marketplace in just a few seconds. Buyers enter the seller’s account ID and can purchase their items in exchange for BURST. Buyers are then provided with instructions for receiving or downloading their purchased products — no intermediaries, no fees, and no delays. All transactions between the buyer and the seller take place directly on the blockchain using Burst.
Seller shop included
With only your Burst address, you can easily establish your own seller’s shop. Place your products on the Burst blockchain, and direct buyers to your store.
The whole process is handled within the chain and makes it easy to maintain your shop items. Change the price in BURST, adjust the quantity, or just delete the sale items from your shop. All functions are built-in.
