What is the marketplace in Canva?

The marketplace in Canva is a platform where users can access a wide variety of design elements to enhance their own creations. It includes millions of stock images, fonts, templates, illustrations, and other design components that users can purchase or access for free. These elements are provided by both Canva itself and third-party contributors who sell their design assets on the marketplace.

The Canva marketplace is designed to be user-friendly, allowing users to easily search for and incorporate design elements into their projects. It caters to both professional designers and non-designers, providing resources that can be used to create anything from social media graphics to presentations. The marketplace is integrated into the Canva design tool, making it easy for users to find and use the resources they need.
