Tesco Marketplace


Tesco’s CEO Philip Clarke has announced the imminent launch of the UK supermarket chain’s online Marketplace, which will enable third parties to sell directly to customers.

As part of a larger overhaul of Tesco’s website over the course of 2012, Marketplace will follow a similar model to Amazon, with Tesco taking a cut of all sales made by third-party sellers.

Tesco also announced this week that it plans to create up to 20,000 new jobs in a bid to improve customer service, which it has identified as a key factor in its competitors’ success.
