An API marketplace allows API providers to publish APIs that developers can discover. The principle is the same as e-commerce marketplaces. They give you visibility but you are listed among thousands in the same category. At Blobr, we don’t believe in API marketplaces and we will never offer one. We believe they are not suitable. You lose the relationship with your own customers. Plus, these types of marketplaces take a very large share of the business you do on the platform.
Blobr allows you to create your own branded API marketplace. An API marketplace where only your company will publish and monetize API products. It’s up to you to market the API store as best you can. But you will benefit from the store while not paying high fees on the transactions you make.
