These turnkey marketplace software solutions enable anyone to create marketplace websites or platforms like Airbnb, Sharedesk,, Dogvacay or Taskrabbit through a simple step-by-step process and without any programming knowledge required on the user’s part. Arcadier’s new marketplace solutions are equipped with many essential features to get a marketplace up and running. More complex features — such as an ‘availability calendar’ that allows customers to see when timeslots for services or spaces are open — are also provided.

With the launch of its new solutions, as well as the introduction of PayPal as a new payment option on Arcadier Marketplaces, Arcadier is extending its free trial period until January 2017, after which a monthly subscription of US$79 applies.

“With almost no marketing, the market response to our beta retail product was nothing short of amazing, with demand coming from around the world. We expect a similar response to our new marketplace solutions because we’re providing a disruptive technology with which anyone may create a marketplace,” says Dinuke Ranasinghe, Arcadier’s Chief Executive Officer.

“We’re also working with government groups and multi-national companies looking for a private B2B marketplace for their own intra-company or intra-industry requirements. We hope to launch a solution to satisfy these needs before the end of 2016.”
