Project Description

Case Study: Multi-vendor Workwear Supply Marketplace

The customer controlled a vast network of workwear suppliers and sold their products through a standard e-commerce website. As the number of suppliers, products, and orders continued to increase, they sought to automate their operation through a customize multivendor platform.

Shuup Multivendor enables a complex network of individual shop admin panels for vendors to sell through a single online marketplace. Each workwear vendor can set up their own brand page with unique products, prices, sales, and marketing. The customer admins set permission levels and access for each vendor. They take commissions on every sale through the marketplace and have a tiered commission system to reward the best sellers.

Products from all vendors are collectively shown through a robust, filterable e-commerce store. Customers can purchase products from one or more vendors.

Through a combination of e-commerce and multivendor modules, the client enjoys a steady increase of suppliers, customers, and sales through their automated system.
