There are various eCommerce development platforms including the ones which claim themselves to be open source marketplace platforms. But none of them stands true to their claim to provide reliable and robust eCommerce development solutions which could let users create a PWA compliant or omnichannel eCommerce model based web store. Platforms like Sharetribe in fact charge so higher than normal any other eCommerce development platform could have charged for letting any of its users create a PWA compliant, omnichannel based web store. It forces the subscribers to go for its flex plan which is completely a dark pattern of selling and trapping a customer into a web of monetary losses and nothing else.
