Armed with automated matchmaking rules, B2B sharing economy platforms solicit labor from the crowd to fulfill the needs of enterprise clients and generate revenue from repeated orders. To this end, we endeavor to identify focal considerations in the design of matchmaking rules and validate the effectiveness of these considerations in meeting the interests of platforms, clients, and service providers. To identify matchmaking considerations, we interviewed employees of a B2B sharing economy platform for container truck road transportation. Thematic analysis on primary data reveals situational and experiential fit as focal considerations in designing matchmaking rules. Empirical analysis on secondary operational data was conducted to validate the effectiveness of situational and experiential fit on order operational efficiency, platform profitability and truck driver income. Results indicate that experiential fit exerts a predominant effect on order dispatching and execution performance cared by clients but a negative effect on financial performance cared by platform and service providers whereas the role of situational fit in several business processes remains insignificant despite generating more profit per order. Empirical findings not only attest to the instrumental role of experiential fit when developing matchmaking in B2B sharing economy platforms, but they further reveal that striking a balance between situational and experiential fit is dependent on the tradeoff between operational efficiency and financial profits for catering to the interests of different parties on platform.
