4. Listing fee revenue model
- a set fee, such as $0.35 per product page

- calculation based on features, such as +$5 for each additional product segment
- any variation of the above
- Make it simple for sellers to pay their fees – particularly if you want them to list a large number of items.
- provide sellers with a compelling case about why listing on your website is a good idea – statistics, for example.
- If you use price-based estimates and deal with pricey goods, keep overall fee limits in mind.

- your marketplace’s scale and life cycle – Certain market models perform well in the early stages, while others require high sales and traffic volumes.
- your target market’s complexities, geographical area, and society – What works well in one field might not fit so well in another.
