Getting funding to start a physical store can be a long journey if you are a small craftsman or reseller. Setting an e-commerce website can also be somehow tricky. So what to do? Sell on Amazon or ETSY can also be expensive depending on the volume of your sales.
Hundreds of thousands craftsman and resellers are facing this problem worldwide, especially those making niche products like ones with African print. That’s why we created www.africabaie.com to empower them.
An online multi vendors marketplace where you can buy and sell any kind of products ranging from clothing and accessories to shoes and home decoration.
I faced different challenges of any kind from the ideation to make it live.
At the ideation stage, the main challenge was which kind of web architecture and solution to use to make it easier to manage a marketplace like what I intend to do.
This technical challenge includes the following: the choice of the website theme, which e-commerce CMS to use, the marketplace plugin that will be able to handle profile, shipping, sales dashboard and the like for every single seller on the marketplace.
Other technical challenges were to decide what payment gateway to use, what plugins to use to make the website multilingual and multi-currency, and more importantly how to make all these different plugins work well together.
I faced other non-technical challenges like being able to persuade sellers to join my platform.
