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!

Introductory Special - FREE for 30 days!

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.

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.

I'm updating my review, before I had issues with communicating with the developers to do design work and it took weeks to get a reply back. Even though I've found a different developer to do that work, they (Bold) now seem more responsive and cooperative with working with my business. I hope this continues and maybe I'll revisit them with more projects to work on in the future.

Lacking a few key features that larger shops who are converting would need. There are no options to import existing product, bulk upload product, and bulk assign product to vendors.

On the shipping level, there are no options to bulk assign rates based on weight. Each item must be configured individually.

We are migrating a shop of over 70,000 products from 40 different vendors. The lack of these options makes it unusable for us. I give it three stars because the UI is better than others on the market and the speed is nice. Maybe someone at BOLD will add the missing bells and whistles it needs.

As a 'promise' to Graeme.....Yes, I installed the app just to see how it works. And yes it does! Very simple and easy to follow. My task now is to find others who like to join the Market Place. I try to defend our local market and products for a long time (on this very small Caribbean Island with nice local stuff) with the 'Made in Bonaire' idea and this app could help me with that. The merchants are all small businesses without websites (and payment options), so maybe this will work for them? My problem is? Will the do the job they (I am) promising..... shipping?? Anyway, first I have to let them know what is possible. Cheers, Sjoerd
