Building vs. buying features for web applications

Hello Makers, I'm working on making it easier to find features for web applications (like authentication systems, video chats, forms with data management, etc.). I'm still baffled by how many companies write basically the same features over and over again. What's your experience with this? Have you ever bought features for web applications instead of building them? Which ones? How did it work out? And in which situations did you build something you could have just bought? I've also set up a google form to get a bit more quantitative grip on the topic: https://forms.gle/1DNMrF2p3JLw6ouL6 Would help a great deal if you could share your insights. Thanks!

Buying features is way more convenient and a lot of times cheaper too. If the source is authentic and the app is well tested it should always be preferred.
