Managing Unique Customer Information
Those are all standard options that should be present in any marketplace. You also want to consider the cart that shows up whenever somebody is in checkout, so that once somebody proceeds to checkout, they see no reason to back out of purchasing; you want a conversion-oriented design... Where the cart within the checkout page itself has very specific capabilities, some consumers will wish to modify their cart on the cart page. Depending on the scenario and your particular marketplace you might want full functionality, something that both the Clarity marketplace platform and many others can do for you. We encourage you to think about what your business will need and what customizations your business needs for the cart itself.
It's a key component to be able to translate customer specific information if needed. Customer specific pricing, possibly inventory status, etc. If a user has added a lot of items, they might benefit from a notification if they've added too many, causing some to no longer be in stock. The ability to quickly look up whether our clients will have a bulk upload where they'll actually have an Excel file or some kind of import file that they can bulk upload order items. Ultimately these are all things that you want to consider from the long-term perspective with your marketplace. You'll start to see requests from end users, and you will benefit by having these available off the shelf or at least highly configurable off the shelf solution features without having to create them from scratch. One of the strong suits of the Clarity eCommerce marketplace is that it really does have all of these and more as highly customizable components. It also has items that we've employed before on anywhere from a dozen to possibly hundreds of implementations of the Clarity platform.
