Bazaar is a multi-vendor eCommerce marketplace that connects buyers and sellers online and offers a trusted online shopping experience. Different suppliers/vendors can register themselves on this platform to sell a wide range of products.
This is a responsive web platform that supports both peer-to-peer architecture with proper user authentication.
Realizing the importance of a multi-vendor marketplace, our client had an idea to unite buyers and sellers of a wide range of products on a single platform. He wanted a platform where customers could get a wide range of product options to choose from various sellers.
Moreover, he wanted to launch a platform to provide a seamless customer experience and user interface, from product browsing to payment. For vendors to increase sales, a smooth shipping process and to facilitate personal discounts to shoppers was the requirement.
His idea of a fully-fledged marketplace included a powerful multi-vendor platform where users need not go anywhere else for any procedure.
Our client vision was a platform that was the epicenter of synchronization and management of the C2C marketplace. The major challenges of this multi-vendor eCommerce marketplace were shipment management and offer management. Thus, it was necessary to carefully define the use cases of the Return and Shipping process.
Also, our client wanted to add the feature for customers to put up an offer within the range; thus, the next challenge was managing offers. After a thorough analysis, we conducted correct calculations and designed a systematic order shipment and offer process.
“We have handled projects of the same niche in the past, so we could understand the client’s vision right from the beginning. The challenge was to make it stand out among other such platforms in terms of design and development capabilities. However, with our team support and collaborative approach, we worked closely on every single element of the platform. With maximum support from our clients and the flexibility to facilitate the platform’s development, we could live up to their requirements. We are currently working on the mobile app for the same platform.”
In our provided solution, Bazaar, the admin and user panel contains all the necessary features of a multi-vendor marketplace. Besides, we have incorporated several unique features, making this a self-reliant multi-vendor marketplace.
We have bridged the gap between seller and customer by incorporating the feature to send the payment link on chat. Now, sellers and customers can quickly chat for any query and complete the transaction process. Seller can generate the link after calculating the shipping charges as per the customer’s address.
This is one of the prominent features of Bazaar, where customers can request the seller for a discount on a particular item within the range. If the seller is satisfied with the offer, he can accept the offer, and an automatic payment link will be shared with the buyer where the buyer can make payment, and the offer gets accepted automatically.
Note: The payment link for the offer case is active for a certain period. Bazaar will send reminder notifications to the buyer so that he/she can pay and further proceed with the purchase, or the seller can send the payment link to the customers through chat and confirm the purchase.
We have integrated an organized seller registration process. The vendor needs to authorize their account to establish their shops as per the following criteria:
We have incorporated the feature for the seller to provide discounts to particular customers based on their activity, such as likes and wishlists. The provided offer will also have a defined validity; subsequent to that period, the offer will be considered null/void.
Customers can provide badges to the seller, which define their particular specialties like a quick response or fast delivery. These badges will be displayed on the seller profile, which will help customers to determine their reliability.
We have developed a highly dynamic reporting system for the seller, which will be updated every refresh. Also, it will graphically represent the account statistics and performance separately.
In the case of a local seller, the buyer can get free shipping on the same day. Also, a buyer can avoid the delivery charges by picking up their product independently.
Note: Buyers can enter the postal/zip code or location on the map to find out if they are eligible for free delivery on local.
We have developed Bazaar by following all the government guidelines and adhering to proper compliances. GSTN issues mandatory reporting of HSN codes from 1st April 2021. According to the Goods and Service Tax Act, in case of non-mentioning or mentioning the wrong HSN code can lead to a penalty of INR 50,000/- (INR 25000/- for CGST and SGST each). Therefore, we have introduced valid HSN codes in Bazaar, which will be calculated on behalf of subcategories.
The main focus while building the design for Bazaar was to make the CTAs stand out to the users. Additionally, we wanted to fabricate the user interface to cater to the user’s eye. Therefore, we assembled clean and concise design elements.
The logo of Bazaar contains vibrant colors, perfect for displaying the CTAs on the screen and grabbing customers’ attention. Thus, it acted as our inspiration to select Orange and Purple colors for UI design.
Since we used vibrant colors in Bazaar, we wanted the text to be easy to read on all devices. Therefore we used Roboto; sans-serif fonts. Roboto fonts provide clear headers and highly-readable body text, improving the reader’s experience. Sans-serif font is composed of clean and crisp lines, making it clear to read, including small caption text and large headers.
We used MERN as a web development stack to build the multi-vendor eCommerce marketplace, Bazaar. MERN is a robust technology, consisting of front-end React(.js), back-end (Node(.js) and Express(.js)), and database components (MongoDB), making it a full-stack web application.
We preferred this tech stack because it is suitable for building scalable and dynamic applications and websites.
Bazaar is a responsive multi-vendor eCommerce marketplace with multiple categories and a highly dynamic reporting system. It provides a smooth online shopping experience to customers and remarkable capabilities to sellers to streamline the sales process.
In the next phase of our project Bazaar, we are building a mobile app using hybrid app development framework React Native. We are taking care of every aspect of app development, including UI/UX designing, Front-end development, Back-end development, and third-party integration.
Bazaar has covered every single aspect of a full-featured marketplace. It is a single platform that provides the facility for sellers and customers to function closely. The most important thing is that the developed platform is highly flexible and scalable. Needless to say, the services of SparxIT have been highly satisfactory. They were highly patient and offered excellent support and solutions.
