If you are an enterprise company, here’s your chance to get your new Near Me Marketplace integrated holistically with Twilio, Stripe and Checkr – Near Me’s latest offering in a marketplace vertical meant for enterprise and entrepreneurs alike.
The foundation of the sharing economy is composed of communications, trust, safety checks, insurance and payment processing. These items are not glamorous enough to make headlines, but without them a trustworthy connection is not possible.
Last week we attended a TwilloTalks event here in San Francisco that explored how the technology layer of the sharing and on-demand economy helps attract, retain and engage customers, -- crucial components for increasing trust, and therefore, ROI for the marketplaces that use them.
It was inspiring to hear the panel composed of Vicki Lin @vickilin, Director of US sales at Stripe, Daniel Yanisse @danielyanisse CEO at Checkr, Dan Hill @serenestudios Director of Product at Airbnb, Maz Mullen @Max CEO of Instacart, Elisa Bellagamba @elibelBG Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Twillio. The event was moderated by Chelsea @chelsearustrum, sharing economy author, facilitator, and consultant who explores what’s next as the collaborative economy continues to evolve. Some of my favorite quotes from the night are below:

Over the years, Near Me has learned a lot about the pains and pitfalls of building a multi-vendor, two-sided marketplace. Especially complex is Payment Gateway integration that is unique to 3-party transactions and workflows, which involves Buyers, Sellers and the Marketplace Owner’s interactions.
This experience offers a complete marketplace solution, covering the gamut of Peer-to-Peer and B2B multi-vendor needs. And it will scale from tiny to global Enterprises like Intel (yep they’re a customer of ours). Everything you need to build a marketplace with state of the art features. Near Me offers you a myriad of securely hosted Ecommerce tools. A powerful dashboard, legendary support, account management, your marketplace in any language, built in SEO best practices and that’s just to name a few features.
Near Me integrates seamlessly with:
- Twilio for SMS, Push-to-talk, call logging and recording and more.
- Checkr for automating background check verification of guest/hosts, sellers/buyers, service providers/clients.
- Stripe, Stripe Connect (and Management Payments where available), including subscriptions and all the power of the Stripe API.
We also have additional Payment Gateways supported by:
