Checklist from start to end on what you need to build a marketplace using Tradly Platform.

Tradly Platform solution is catered to different groups separately

  • For developers: Headless API solution. Using the API solution, developers can build apps on top of it
  • For non-coders: A simple toggle based SuperAdmin Panel to configure features in the already pre-built apps (also called as storefront, front end apps, templated apps).

For developers#

  • Signup for a free sandbox account
  • Get the API keys in the SuperAdmin > Settings > API section = Refer the API documentation to start building the app

5 Steps for non-coders#

⭐⭐⭐

  • Signup for a free sandbox account
  • Prototype your app using our SuperAdmin builder
  • Visualise your app through test apps.
  • When you are ready to launch, Subscribe to our plans and get a white label app build

There will be 5 types of works you will be doing to configure the app to work fully functional for an MVP launch to the market.

1. Signing up the Sandbox (Selecting mandatory informations)#

You will be asked to enter this information when you signup, read the below reference link for each part when you are stuck.

  • Default things (Example: Appname, currency, Language, registration method, country you want to launch, )
  • Choose your business Model (Product Marketplace, Service Marketplace, etc)
  • Choose Revenue Model : See here for the available revenue model for your business and how it works
  • Choose Delivery Method: Available delivery methods and how it works
  • Choose Payment Gateways
  • Choose Location & Map if you are planning to have location specific features

NICE! When you reach the SuperAdmin home page, you will be able to find your APP-NAME. That’s the APP-NAME you should be using to experience your test app via Tradly Test apps. Whatever the type of marketplaces, mostly these are the fundamental blocks you should need to configure. The rest of the steps are mostly according to your business
