Summary of what the app does:

Definition of MERCHANT: A Merchant is someone who lists products to be sold on your site.

In a nutshell, this app allows you to turn your store into a marketplace like Amazon or Etsy, where merchants can submit their products to be listed on your store! When one of their products sell they handle everything related to the shipping and you take a commission. Basically, the exact same way Amazon or Etsy operate, where you're the "Amazon" or "Etsy".

Highlight of the features:



  • Merchants submit products through a merchant portal with full control over everything. Images, description, options, pricing, shipping, and more.

  • Merchants have an order management panel that allows them to view and fulfill their own orders.

  • Control whether or not products & merchants get manually, or auto approved.

  • Bulk pay your merchants right INSIDE the app!

  • Set different commission rates for different product categories. 15% for electronics, 20% for clothing etc...

  • Edit products and merchants if needed.

  • Customizable automated email notifications for merchant sales, and many other triggers.

  • Customizable merchant portal.

  • Customizable merchant registration fields.

  • Create "info" pages in your merchant portal for resource pages such as FAQ's, Terms, Program Details, Tips and Tricks... or anything you want!

Here's more details on all the features:

Merchant Portal

PRODUCT CREATION
Merchants can create products exactly the same way you would in your store, but completely through their "Merchant" portal. They create the product title, description, price, options, images, shipping rates and everything else.

ORDER MANAGEMENT
When a merchant's product gets sold through your store it's just like any other purchase, except all the details get pushed to the merchants portal as well so they can manage and fill the order themselves. When the ship, they enter the tracking info and it then updates the original order in your Shopify store.

If a customer places an order with products from multiple merchants on the same order, each merchant gets the shipping details, but only see their products.

RESOURCE PAGES
The app allows you to create resource or "info" pages in your merchant portal. These pages might be things like FAQ's, Terms, Marketplace details, etc. They'll show in their dropdown menu and you create them with a simple WYSIWYG editor, so no coding required!

Merchant Payouts


When it's time to pay your merchants you can do it all right inside the app! The app uses the PayPal "Bulk Pay" API that allows you to select all the merchants you want to pay and simply click "Pay Merchants." It pulls from your PayPal account and pays all their individual ones. It's that easy!

Digital Downloads


With digital downloads, merchants no longer need to be selling a physical product to a customer! They now have the option to provide digital purchases that can be downloaded right onto their customer's computers. 

Detailed Control over Everything


Run your marketplace the way YOU want to run it! Some people want to manually approve every product, some don't. Some want to manually approve merchants, some don't! This app allows you to approve, edit, change prices, set commissions, set merchant controls, and just about everything!

Common Questions


Q - Is there a liquid update to my store required?


Nope, there is no code update required! The only modification you'll need to make to your store is to add a link to the "Merchant" or "Reseller" admin. Usually people put this down in their footer.

Q - Do I need a PayPal account to use this app?


Yes you do. You can use this app without one, but to pay your merchants you'll need a PayPal account with the "Mass Pay" feature enabled.

The is no other app like this in shopify app store. its the complete package in 99. its worth it. we have been using the app on https://dikhawa.pk

Seroiusly, $99 for this? After trying other apps, I decided to go with Bold, expecting to get something fabulous for this price. The app is so primitive, lacking plenty of useful features, for ex. category edit option has ONE field to edit. Even the email templates consist only of one-two words, ex. "Congratulations :-)". C'mon, guys, for $99 you could make at least this easier for us...
The app is existing absolutely on its own, separately from your shop and is good only if you just started with an empty website and zero vendors. If you're owning a running shop with plenty of goods inside, be ready for a long hassle with creating every category and product from a scratch.
The interface is uncomfortable to use, every time you open some link, you don't understand, if something is wrong, or the page is supposed to look so retarded. It always feels like something is missing.
The only good thing is that the app works fast, but obviously, cause there's nothing inside. If you're just starting, it might work well for you. But still, in my opinion, the app is too overpriced, considering what it offers.

This is a great app but it lacks important features: it's highly frustrating that you can not easily customize the look an feel of the seller portal.....(everybody does not know how to use CSS) then when you reach out to Bold support they will hit you with a customization fee just to make color edits.....yes I do understand that making some color edits isn't just a wham bam, quick job and would require a bit of time to get done by the development team.......but that should have been something implemented into the marketplace app in the first place so it wouldn't be such a hassle. No one truly wants to pay extra customizations fees on top of already paying a monthly fee for the app. Here are things that need to be implemented:

1.) There is no seller profile page - it would be nice if a seller profile page could be implemented where buyers could see a picture of the seller and a bio.

2.) A reviews and rating system - the buyer can rate & review the seller products on the seller profile page.

3.) Questions and answers where the buyer can directly ask the seller a question about their product an the seller can respond back.

4.) Shipping options are okay but it sucks big time that in order to allow your sellers to choose their own shipping method that you must upgrade to a higher Shopify Plan. I already pay $128 a month and with added on app fees to my shopify plan, I pay roughly around $168.14. Which in my case means that if I want my sellers to select and set their own shipping, I will have to upgrade to the Shopify plan of $348 monthly an then I still would have to pay for the apps I'm using so I would be looking at roughly $400 monthly which is nuts!

5.) Private messaging between the seller and marketplace owner.

6.) It would be awesome if recurring payments were implemented for sellers who wanted to set up subscriptions through the marketplace.

7.) Split & parallel payments

8.) Bank transfer

9.) Groups & badges

10.) A return system implemented in the marketplace.

11.) Quantity discounts

And that's all I can think of at this time......for the time being I think I'm going to uninstall Bold Marketplace app, especially seeing as how it's taking quite a bit of time for Bold Support to get back to me about customizations. The response time and level of support has left me disappointed & frustrated. Especially being that no one is available on the weekends when there is an issue.

I don't know what's going on because I love Bold Apps, even have the Bold Recurring/Subscription app installed. But I'm just not having a great experience with the Marketplace App and Bold support/development team. Looks like I'm going to have to go with Multi-Vendor Marketplace App because at least they offer half of the missing features I mentioned above that Bold Marketplace app lacks.

Best Marketplace App! Fire Sale Approved!

posted

Cannot import vendors. Cannot import products. Cannot bulk approve products. Lacking features and options, many of which the Webkul marketplace has. No logout button when support tells me there should be. Huge long problem with connecting my Paypal account (yes it's a business account.

NOT WORTH 99 A MONTH

At least they have chat support that is responsive.

We immediately feel inlove with Marketplace by bold because it offered us exactly what we needed to start our service.

We have gotten amazing support from Graeme who listened to all of our questions and helped us along the way.

I would recommend them to anyone.
