This module package supports working in only one work model - The Last Mile (DBS,Delivery by Seller, delivery from the seller's warehouse).
Four basic models of work
There are more than three hundred possible models of work, but all of them, in fact, are modifications or combinations of 4 main models, which we will describe below:

And this applies not only to the sale of goods, but also services.

Organization of the marketplace
In order for the marketplace to work and bring profit, it is important to think in detail about the entire chain from the registration of new sellers to the delivery of the order to the buyer. The marketplace should be convenient: an intuitive, clear administrative panel of the seller, with short prompts explaining what actions need to be performed and in what order.
To make the management of the marketplace as simple as possible, it is necessary to automate all processes, reduce human participation in them to a minimum. We consider these two tasks to be the main ones in the marketplace development process, and the main part of the modules in the package is designed to automate the management of the marketplace and reduce the cost of its maintenance.
Below we will give some examples of automation of processes related to e-commerce. Naturally, we will not describe all the functions and not all the tasks that our module package solves. It is almost impossible to fit a detailed, detailed description of all its features into one text. But you can always contact us and clarify what solutions to your problems our module package can offer.
In order for the marketplace to be unique and stand out from the competition, we offer the possibility of flexible menu settings. Make your menu logical, convenient for your business, meeting your needs.
You will be able to create your own menu, arranging its items and sub-items in such a way that it is as logical and functional as possible and corresponds to your business process as much as possible. This does not require any special skills from you, because you can move an item to the right place in the menu in just a few clicks.
When installing new modules from any developers, a few mouse movements will be enough for you to move the new functionality to the right place in the menu or change the name of a new item.
We have automated and simplified the registration process as much as possible, so as not to scare off the seller with complex procedures with a request for a huge amount of information necessary for the execution of a cooperation agreement.
At the registration stage, the seller enters only the information that is needed to create the seller's personal account. The seller enters all other data directly in his personal account, at any time convenient for him in a convenient format.
You can set up your personal account so that the seller gets access to the main functionality only after he enters all the necessary information about himself and his company, and after you check and confirm its authenticity.
The seller will be able to start selling his goods only after the conclusion of the contract and the transfer of the necessary information about the company for work. This will allow you to weed out unscrupulous sellers and scammers.
Creation of products, characteristics and content control
The next step is to create products and display them on the showcase. The product card tells the buyer about all the advantages of the product, its features and characteristics. It is she who encourages the buyer to make a choice in favor of a particular product.
Therefore, it is very important that the product card is as informative, attractive, and filled in as possible. In addition, it should contain important technical information, such as the dimensions and weight of the goods, which are used to calculate the cost of delivery.
Fullness of the product card
To ensure maximum information content of the product card, we have created a system that monitors whether the required fields are filled in: whether the image is uploaded, whether there is a description, whether the characteristics are specified, whether there are delivery parameters. And if any of these fields are not filled in, the product card simply will not get to the showcase.
The interface highlights the fields that are necessary to display the product on the showcase. The product itself is also highlighted in the list of products, and the reasons why it cannot get to the showcase are indicated: the characteristics are not filled in, the weight of the product is not specified, there is no image, and so on.
Moderation of products
And in order to guarantee the correctness of filling out the product card, we have developed a convenient moderation system. Your employee will see all the information about the product at once. Accordingly, he will not miss the goods in the showcase, in the description of which there is advertising information that is not related to the product and calls to go to the seller's website, content that violates the laws of the Russian Federation (pornography, incitement of ethnic hatred, propaganda of drug addiction, etc.) and so on.
If the seller makes changes to an already verified product card, then he gets to moderation again. Your employee will see the list of changes, will be able to compare two versions of the product card and make sure that the product information has not been changed dramatically, for example, that the seller did not replace the last iPhone with a simple Samsung after the sale of the product.
Of particular importance for the presentation of the product to the buyer are the completed characteristics. They not only help the buyer choose a product that is ideally suited to his requirements, but also compare several products with each other, as well as find a product by a given characteristic using filters.
Convenient search increases conversion, increases the number of sales, makes your marketplace more understandable for customers.
Therefore, we pay special attention to working with characteristics. You can create characteristics for different product categories yourself, or allow sellers to create the characteristics they need themselves. After the seller creates the characteristics and assigns certain categories and values to them, you will have to make sure that the new characteristics are correct.
Identical characteristics are automatically grouped together. Combined characteristics are much easier to work with than with a huge number of similar characteristics of the same name. Moreover, you will be able to combine essentially the same characteristics even if their names do not match. For example, "Country of manufacture", "Country of manufacture", "Country of manufacture" and "Country".
