There are parents and NGO organisations who are looking for a community platform or want to build a community platform which allows parents to donate. Mostly giveaway initiatives and less of a swap.
If you are looking to build a marketplace that allows users to buy and sell pre-loved children’s clothes, toys, books, and other creative things, you are in the right place.
What Tradly provides is a simple toolkit to create a marketplace. You do not need to code or build some complex logics. Even though the platform allows it via API (the last time I will speak jargon here) but the no-code toolkits are meant for everyone.
Here is how it works
- Self Signup, an account with Tradly
- When you register, you will be automatically assigned a Marketplace template (but you can change them later)
- Go to SuperAdmin, the place where you can configure
- How to onboard your account,
- How to collect donation listing (like what information you need from, category, etc)
- Add some promotional banners on the homepage, etc.
- Customising the Style of the website
Here is in a standard user flow of a donor who is using your marketplace.
Open a donor account: Enter the details
they can select whether they want shipment preferences like pickup collection, drop off.
You can even configure collection points where people can drop off / pickup.
- Post the items as listing which are available as donations (Item picture, description, condition, category, Age, Size, Gender)
- The item is live in the marketplace.
- Register an account
- Browse the products posted
- If any product is needed by them, they can claim it.
- On the checkout page, based on donor preference, they can choose the available PICKUP or DELIVERY. If the donor has included a shipping fee, then it will be charged.
- When the receiver orders this, the donor will receive the notification via email.
- The receiver can go to a pickup place or receive via delivery.
