MercadoLibre, Inc. hosts an online commerce platform in Latin America, which is focused on enabling e-commerce and its related services. The company’s platforms are designed to provide its users with a portfolio of services facilitating e-commerce transactions. It operates in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. The company also operates online commerce platforms in the Dominican Republic, Panama, and Portugal. The company offers its users an eco-system of six related e-commerce services, such as the MercadoLibre Marketplace, The MercadoLibre Classifieds Service, the MercadoPago payments solution, the MercadoLibre Advertising program, the MercadoShops online stores solution, and the Mercado Envios shipping service. The MercadoLibre Marketplace The MercadoLibre Marketplace is an Internet-based commerce platform where buyers and sellers can meet, and consummate e-commerce transactions for a wide range of goods and services. The MercadoLibre Marketplace offers buyers a selection of new and used items that are often more expensive or otherwise hard to find through traditional offline sellers, such as brick-and-mortar retail establishments, offline classified advertisements, community bulletin boards, auction houses, and flea markets. This service permits both businesses and individuals to list general merchandising items and conduct their sales and purchases online in either a fixed-price or auction-based format. Any Internet user in the countries in which the company operates could browse through the various products that are listed on it Website and register with MercadoLibre to list, bid for and purchase such items and services. The Classifieds Solution The MercadoLibre Classifieds solution enables users to list their offerings related to vehicles, real estate, and services outside the marketplace platform. Classifieds listings differ from marketplace listings, as they only charge optional placement fees, and never final value fees. The company’s classifieds pages are also a major source of traffic to the site, benefitting both marketplace and non-marketplace businesses. In 2013, the company’s visitors were able to browse an average of 1.1 million classifieds listings daily, including approximately 678,000 in real estate, 350,000 in motors, and 74,000 in services per day. During 2013, it had a total of 2.5 million sellers and 11.0 million paid listings through classifieds. The MercadoPago Online Payments Solution To complement the MercadoLibre Marketplace, the company developed MercadoPago, an integrated online payments solution. MercadoPago is designed to facilitate transactions both on and off the MercadoLibre Marketplace by providing a mechanism that allows the company’s users to send, receive, and finance payments online. MercadoPago enables any user registered with MercadoPago to send and receive payments online to pay for purchases made in the MercadoLibre Marketplace. MercadoPago is available to the company’s users in each of Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Venezuela, Chile, and Colombia. MercadoPago is also available for purchases of goods and services outside the MercadoLibre Marketplace, as an open online payment service in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela, Chile, and Colombia. Users are able to transfer money to other users with MercadoPago accounts and to incorporate MercadoPago as a means of payments on their independent commerce Websites. This version of MercadoPago simplifies the payment of transactions in the MercadoLibre Marketplace achieving higher transaction velocity for various users. Direct payments allow online sellers to use MercadoPago to facilitate checkout and payment processes on their Website and also enable users to simply transfer money to each other. MercadoLibre Advertising Services The MercadoLibre Advertising platform, which the company refers to as ‘MercadoClics’, enables large retailers, small and medium brands and various consumer brands to promote their products and services on the Internet. Advertisers place text and/or display advertisements on the company’s Website in order to promote their
