Marketplace plugin lets you and/or your users sell and buy physical or digital goods right on the site. User level settings give you an opportunity to use it as a simple shop where you may sell some products to your users, or a whole marketplace where users will be able to sell their own products to each other.
This plugin is an extended version of our Simple Marketplace plugin. It includes all old marketplace add-on modules (Shopping Cart, Coupons, Shipping module) and lots of other necessary for online shops features. Check out the detailed description of them below.
Digital and Physical product type
Nowadays we use lots of things we can't really touch, it can be computer games, images, books, audio and video files and so on. Choose Digital product type while creating a new listing to sell this kind of products.
To sell other things choose Physical type. Since Shipping module is included to the Marketplace you can add shipping fee while creating the listing and easily send the item to the buyer.
You can set Shipping fee option in your Admin panel.
Admins can set Website fee and charge users for each successful deal. You can set charges fee in USD or %. It will be charged automatically during processing the payment. Users will be informed about the fee on Post New Listing page.
Coupons module is also included to the Marketplace. Create promo codes for your products and give your buyers some discounts or promo offers.
On this page you can create sales and assign them to listings. Those listings will be displayed with a "SALE" mark and a "%" number on the profile photo and their prices will be adjusted according to the sale percent. Set Start/End Date while creating the sale to make it active for the certain period of time.
Row/Grid view of listings on the Browse Listings Page for better visual appearance of the marketplace.
Make your listings more informative with the help of a new visual editor. Change font style, size and color, add links and much more.
One more brand new feature is Wishlist. If you like some item, but not ready to purchase it yet, just add it to Wishlist and make a decision later.
Also we've added Add to Wishlist and Buy buttons on the Browse Listings page, so you don't have to go to products' profile pages one by one to buy them.
The shopping cart module is included to the Marketplace and is now more visually attractive and convenient. Cart module includes popup that appears while adding products to the cart, you can also change quantity of items and see total price of all items added to the cart.
Both Wishlist and Cart have nice icons in the upper right of your site, with red number indicators that appear when you add items to them.
Use a 5 star rating feature with an ability to comment to rate some listing. You can filter the most rated products on the Browse Listings page. Also we've added a Most Rated widget, which you can edit in your Admin panel.
You can rate sellers also! Just click Write Review button and a popup will appear on the screen. Leave your feedback and rate a seller with a necessary amount of stars. You can read these reviews on the Member Profile Page (Marketplace Reviews) or on the Marketplace Profile Page (Seller's Reviews).
There's also Top Sellers widget that displays the most rated sellers. You can manage the number of users to display in your Admin panel.
In a new version Custom Profile Types can be created for marketplace, with each profile type having different fields. Association of marketplace categories with profile types enables you to have different custom fields for each category of marketplace.
New page in your Admin panel – Profile Types Mapping. On this page you can assign the categories with a Profile Type.
