Embeddable Storefronts for Boosting Online Sales

This end-to-end online selling platform with embeddable storefronts allows vendors to collaborate with sellers and offers affiliates access to a large network of sellers with their own audiences.

Challenges

Our client came to us with an idea for a new approach to selling. He wanted to develop a multi-channel selling platform that would help vendors expand their markets by selling through a large community of affiliates (sellers) and thus boosting online sales.

To reach this goal, our team needed to integrate the platform with ecommerce products like Shopify and BigCommerce, implement automated sales-related tools (such as for tax calculation), and scale the platform so it could handle not only users' data but also data from connected online stores.

Our team needed to:

  • Clarify and analyze our client’s requirements to identify the project goal and core functionality
  • Build a fully operational platform that provides vendors with access to a large network of sellers with their own audiences
  • Equip the platform with tools that automate tax calculation, automatically split payments between sellers and vendors, provide detailed reports, and more
  • Build a full-fledged digital analytics tool to get a detailed overview of data on earnings, product views, and best-selling products

Solutions

To reach a large target audience and make a platform for wide use, we created a multi-channel selling platform that addresses the needs of three groups: vendors, sellers, and consumers.

To make the platform scalable and able to cope with a huge number of users (vendors, sellers, and customers) as well as all the data from connected online stores, we used the proven Amazon Web Services toolkit, which allowed us to automatically scale servers based on actual load.

For the client side, we implemented React and Bootstrap, which let us increase the speed of development and ensure the responsiveness of the app.

We developed an end-to-end digital solution that helps vendors to enlarge their markets and increase sales by engaging affiliates. The selling platform acquires product information from integrated online stores, thereby allowing sellers to see product details. Sellers, in turn, are able to select products on the platform and promote them on their own websites.

We did the following:

  • Built a scalable architecture using AWS to make the platform able to cope with 900+ million users and data from connected online stores
  • Integrated with 30+ ecommerce platforms including Shopify, eBay, BigCommerce, Etsy, Magento, PrestaShop, WooCommerce, and OpenCart
  • Implemented a tool that automates tax calculation and tax tracking
  • Synchronized inventory data with online stores to guarantee that sellers get up-to-date data
  • Provided an automatic payment feature that allows the platform to create an order in the vendor’s online store including customer contact and shipping data
  • Created a reporting tool to track detailed statistical reports including the number of the most in-demand products, orders received, and overall income for certain periods
