JamGOra is an efficient, secure, eCommerce Marketplace, started in November 2013 by Founder & CEO, Maurice P.G Sawyers. He coined the term from the words Jamaica and the Greek term, Agora, which when concatenated is defined to mean Jamaican Marketplace.
An online marketplace (or online e-commerce marketplace) is a type of e-commerce site where product and inventory information is provided by multiple third parties, whereas transactions are processed by the marketplace operator. Online marketplaces are the primary type of multichannel ecommerce.
In an online marketplace, consumer transactions are processed by the marketplace operator and then delivered and fulfilled by the participating retailers or wholesalers (often called drop shipping).
In general, because marketplaces aggregate products from a wide array of providers, selection is usually more wide, availability is higher, and prices are more competitive than in vendor-specific online retail stores.
