This is an incredible opportunity to take on an online vegan marketplace. The Developers of this website have taken meticulous care in creating a bespoke platform for sellers to create their own custom-built storefronts and advertise and sell their products directly to consumers with ease.
The marketplace was developed over 10 months, and is designed to be aesthetically pleasing, user-friendly and technically feature rich. A Vegan Online Marketplace for conscious consumers and a centralised platform for people to access vegan alternative products without sacrificing on quality, appearance or choice.
The platform has three main components, the Partner Portal, the Admin Portal and the Front End Retail Platform.
The Partner Portal enables sellers to login to their secure storefront, add and update products, manage stock inventory, view sales and profits, add labels for customers to shop by values important to them e.g organic, plastic free, social enterprise. Sellers can include ingredient or material details and allow for customisation choices for products. The technical design enables the seller to follow easy steps to fulfil each sale from accepting an order to marking an order as dispatched which sends out an automated email via Mailchimp integration to the customer. Each seller is paid via an integrated Stripe account.
The Admin Portal enables administrators to monitor sales revenue and commission and sellers activity, direct message capabilities allow ease of communication from admins to sellers and vice versa and the portal collects customer data via sales and newsletter sign ups. Admins also have the ability to update and change content on the front end including the carousel, Featured Products, New In and Trending sections.
The Front End Retail Platform is where customers can sign up to receive newsletters, click and save favourite products, create new accounts and store their shipping information for ease of purchase.
The potential with this business is huge and is in need of someone to take it to the next level with dedicated marketing, advertising and SEO. Over the next year, 2.2 million people will adopt veganism in the UK and lifestyle vegans are a rapidly expanding market.
To date, the marketplace has 80 sellers and is growing with sellers requesting to join on a weekly basis, with sales and subscription fees coming through for these sellers. The owners of the marketplace have decided they have taken it as far as they can on a limited budget and feel it is time to hand it over to someone with the ability to spend the time and money needed to properly market the business.
