Creation of the largest marketplace on Magento
This was a totally new business venture for the Client. Our telecommunications sector consumer set new business objectives and wanted to diversify.
How we went about this task and WHY SO?
- To create the marketplace, we wanted to use what we know best – Magento. In this case we used Magento Commerce.
- The greatest challenge in this project was an efficient combination of Magento with Mirakl. This task involved the need to understand the performance and structure of data in the Mirakl system and its influence on Magento 2.
- We worked in a nine-person team, which included: Project Manager, Tech Lead, seven developers working full time.
How does it work?
- The marketplace, which we opened for Slovenia, acquired 35 thousand offers, available in 50 categories.
- Marketplace offers the possibility of comparing offers for the same product from multiple vendors, which is a great advantage for customers.
- Service and navigation around the marketplace are a piece of cake! Every user of our telecommunications sector consumer logs in using their login on the website, without the need to create an additional account. Marketplace search engine has a touch of artificial intelligence – it simply knows the customer, and because we implemented it, the purchase of a product and payment take place via one platform. All at the checkout.
FWC about this project:
Project was a significant technological challenge for Fast White Cat but the large number of dedicated solutions which we implemented enabled us to broaden our portfolio – beginning with widening the client panel, through to the initial Mirakl integration. The Fast White Cat team allowed the Client to enter the market with a new marketplace. We are glad to be able to continue helping the Client in achieving further successes!
