StoreHippo, a new age mobile commerce platform now offers multi-vendor functionality for the online merchants, which turns any e-store into a thriving marketplace. Through this multi-vendor feature, the online retailer who creates his online store from StoreHippo can also sell products and services of other vendors who wish to sell on his storefront, irrespective of the geographical location of the online retailer.
The feature allows many online retailers to come together and sell products and services through a common storefront. Such a partnership delivers remarkable opportunities and benefits to all the vendors, since the consumers prefer to purchase various products or services from just a single web store.
Rajiv Kumar, CEO and Founder, StoreHippo, while sharing his insights said, "Multi-vendor functionality is a perfect solution for the merchants who wish to have multiple independent vendors on their online storefront. The store becomes a virtual shopping mall where the customers have the convenience to choose their preferred vendor, and the vendors have the flexibility to manage their products and returns as well."
It enables multiple brand accessibility for the consumers. With this feature, the products from multiple vendors appear in the common product catalogue and vendors share the same shopping cart, thus allowing the online shoppers the flexibility and convenience of purchasing products from one web store itself, even if the products are supplied by different vendors.
Apparently, the primary retailer who has taken a multi-vendor subscription plan from StoreHippo can easily manage all the vendors in the admin and can also accept or reject products offered by the vendors.
The mobile e-commerce technology makes the online stores fully functional and optimised for all web and mobile devices like tablets, mobiles and laptops.
E-commerce stores are imperative for success of any online entrepreneur, wherein, retailers do not have to rely upon anyone for creating their own web store. Over the next few years, online stores will gain a strong foothold in both domestic and emerging markets.
