Great question. Firstly, we have confidentiality clauses in place with all our clients to protect not only their specific idea, but also any custom features/flows they thought up. Since we do build outside of the box, most clients have something unique and innovative that they want to keep proprietary. Often you may use a marketplace and think “how did they do that?” or “that was really cool, I want my marketplace to have that feature.” Those are great to bring to us when we build your project, but we do not want that idea to stem from using one of our client sites.
We also produce 100% white label sites, so our name and branding will be nowhere on your site or in your domain.
Lastly, we provide a massive shortcut to getting a multi-vendor site created, as that’s the only thing we build and we are good at it. If a prospect sees a client site that they love, function and/or vertical wise, and ask for the same thing, we’d be in a tough ethical position. We potentially could put our own entrepreneurs out of business if we give the exact same site to another entrepreneur. It’s a slippery area, so we decided to avoid it all together.
