Ramòn Sommerhalder contacted Webkul support team regarding the query to create an online marketplace to sell unique handmade crafts and products.
“Hello, I am building a multivendor marketplace and I want to build it with Magento 2.
I am interested in your https://store.webkul.com/Magento2-Marketplace.html module”.
– Ramòn Sommerhalder
Our support team guided Ramòn to his pre-sales query by analyzing his business needs and gathered all the details related to the query he had raised.
Here you can find the list of extensions which were used to enhance the Boolenat marketplace.
In order to build a marketplace from scratch, Ramon trusted the marketplace module which enables him to use a complete online marketplace with multiple sellers and to give their customers a clean and tidy user experience.
Using this extension, the suppliers/sellers can manage the inventory, shipment, Seller Profile page, Seller Collection page. The supplier/seller can add multiple types of products – Simple, Configurable, Virtual & Downloadable.
After building up the online marketplace our client asked for adding some essential features to the marketplace. Ramon wanted to add a theme to the marketplace in order to present the products and functionalities to the customers in a very elegant and precise way.
Ramon was confused regarding the compatibility of various themes with our Magento 2 Multi-vendor marketplace module. But our multi-vendor marketplace supports all the Magento 2 themes without having any compatibility issues.
Finally, he made his mind to use our Magento 2 Xtremo Responsive Theme with his online marketplace.
As the Boolenat only deals in authentic products and crafts, they also have authenticated sellers who deal in handmade genuine products which help the website to be popular among the others.
In order to have genuine sellers, the Boolenat.com features multi-step vendor signup form which makes the sellers fill their information stepwise in a precise manner helping the store owner to maintain the record of the seller.
With the help of this module, Admin can set commission for products, categories and seller categories. Admin can use commission rule also. If any product lies under various categories on which admin has set the commission, then, in this case, the highest commission will be applicable on the product.
In order to be at top Google searches, our client insists to use our Magento 2 SEO extension which in turn help him to improve the SEO of the online store.
Using this extension, you can display Rich snippets for products, categories, and CMS pages. You can add content for the Facebook Open Graph and Twitter Cards, which allows customers to share the product on Facebook and Twitter. SEO Meter is also included which shows suggestions to improve the SEO further.
Boolenat.com deals in handmade, ethnic products and unique crafts which is sold by the vendors & purchased by the customers all over the world. So in order to provide the customer with a hassle-free shopping experience.
Ramon came with a query:-
“When a seller will add a new product on sale will he be able to add the product with his own currency? example: If a vendor will sell a product from the UK will his vendor dashboard allow him to load the product with GBPounds // If the vendor is located in the USA will the vendor dashboard allow him to ad his new object in U.S. Dollars?”
Regarding this our Presales team suggested the client use Magento 2 Geolocation Currency Converter module. With the help of this extension, sellers can display the product price in multiple currencies according to the region.
Magento 2 Geolocation Currency Converter will automatically detect the customer’s geolocation and display the converted price according to the country-specific currency.
The module calculates the exchange rates and converts the price of the products on a run-time basis for every geographical location where the web-store is accessed.
For example – if you have the product priced according to USD and your site accessed from London, then the product price will be automatically converted to GBP.
As Boolenat.com is an online marketplace having multiple sellers and is having PayPal as a payment method. So in order to get the payment from the customers, the sellers must have verified Paypal Business account instead of having a normal account.
So our pre-sales team suggested the client to use Marketplace Paypal Parallel Express Checkout Payment for Magento 2. This extension allows splitting the payment from the customer within the admin and sellers dynamically.
This module also allows the functionality of making an online refund via both the admin and seller end with the ability to make a full/partial refund to the customers.
Shipping in Magento2 marketplace module is a much-needed feature for the sellers that’s why our client uses an add-on for Table Rate Shipping. Marketplace Table Rate Shipping For Magento 2 module is useful allows the seller to add the shipping rates through the CSV files from their end.
After installation of all the above-mentioned extension & setting up the marketplace and with fixing minor issues the client website with url:- www.boolenat.com got live.
