Merkeleon team is happy to announce a number of new features available within online marketplace platform package.
Three notable features are announced:
Number of Product Items in Stock.
From now on every seller will have the opportunity to indicate a number of products that is available in stock specifying the available number for selling.
Available number for selling can be set both for different types of auctions and for direct purchase.
In the framework of any auction (including or excluding a buy-it-now option) every seller is able to indicate the number of items to sell in one lot. Winning the auction (or buying it without bidding) the buyer gets the whole lot (indicated by the seller number of items in one lot can be seen at the auction page).
When a product is put to the auction at a fixed price (direct buy option) a buyer can choose the number of items to buy from the total number in stock. The total number available is automatically indicated by the seller when creating the auction, so a buyer cannot choose more items than this number.
Offline and Online Payment Alternatives.
When buying a product every user can choose the way of payment for the product. There are two options available at Merkeleon platform: online and offline payment.
Online payment means paying for the product inside the platform using different payment systems integrated at the platform (PayPal for example).
Offline payment means direct payment between seller and buyer, for example bank transfer.
Clicking the button “Buy” at an auction or product page a buyer is transferred to the Order Product delivery page where it’s possible to choose a convenient delivery and payment method. Further steps on payment depend on the kind of payment system or in case of offline payment it depends on the invoice generating system.
In order to keep relations between sellers and buyers honest and guarantee fair deal we implement the following rules:
-It’s possible to leave a review on a seller only after the deal between seller and buyer is completed. This process includes the steps of a seller sending a product and a buyer confirming its receipt.
-After a seller sends a product – the buyer gets the opportunity to leave a review on a product. There is a special section in a personal account where all unreview products are placed. A user gets a notification if there wasn’t left a review for the product won or bought at the platform.
