  • Turn your store into a Marketplace, just like Amazon or Etsy!
  • Merchant list products, they manage their own shipping and you keep a commission.
  • Bulk pay your merchants every week right in the app through PayPal.

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 it 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 sees 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, Markeplace 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!

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 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.

While a few functionality items need a bit of work, overall Bold's marketplace app is an incredible asset to our business. We had previously suffered substantially in transparency to our vendors, and now they are able to seamlessly edit their listed products, view relevant sales, and update their respective profiles. It's a substantial improvement on what Shopify should've personally integrated years ago.

So far so good! Loving the functionality and how easy it is to set up! I only wish I were able to customize it to match my store theme. If this is an option already/anyone knows how to do it, please let me know.

Other than that, Bold apps are just amazing. Keep up the good work guys!

The customer service is responsive. It justs lacks features that the other market app doesn't. For example chatting between vendor and customer/ vendor profiles. The marketplace vendor login should be mobile as well a lot of my vendors drag their feet to upload because they have to do it from the computer. I think overall the companies communication is transparent.

The app works the way I want it to for the most part so I'll give that part a 4/5 but the customer service provided is low grade, it makes absolutely no sense to me why it takes more than a month to set up communication with them. I contacted them in November and had to wait weeks for a reply. After getting one its taken a couple more weeks for me to communicate (through emails and phone) what I need help with, and I'm still here waiting....I hope they figure something out quickly or I'm finding a different app developer.

So simple to use, great support, great app

This app has great potential, unfortunately it is not easily customized to fit your store's needs. The registration form & product creation form don't allow owners to input instructions or information bubbles to guide the user or to choose the input fields, their labels or which fields are mandatory.

I have heard there are ways to manipulate the product creation form using their CSS box in the setting dashboard, but I am not skilled in coding and have been given no instructions on how to use this input.

I think BOLD's marketplace has the most professional & efficient platform for adding sellers to your store compared to the current competition. I would love to keep using this app, but will have to reconsider other apps if I am not provided with a way to easily customize the process for sellers.

If things improve, I will definitely be back to review with 5 stars.

Its really a great app and simple to use!

Great app, it works very well!
One thing to improve it's the possibility to translate the app. I'll give a 5-star when be possible.

The team has been so incredibly helpful in assisting me in making my dream website. So far I haven't had any issues that couldn't be resolved through an email or phone call. Hopefully it continues to get better and better!
