1. Single Stores: You can create “Product” pages on Blipteam and upload your product images and prices.
2. Marketplaces: Your sellers can create listings in their individual or business accounts with their own images and prices. You can then add these listings to your marketplace site.
Stores and Marketplaces: A shopping cart is added to your site as soon as you upload your first product. You will also need to sign up with one of our payment partners to “activate” your products and start receiving payments. The payment provider may ask you for documents related to your business such as your business registration, tax registration, personal IDs, business address proofs and so on. Once your payment account is set up all you have to do is enter your payment provider ID into your 'Payments' section and your shopping cart is good to go. As simple as that - no technical stuff required.
Single Store owners create 'Products' on their websites. Marketplaces load 'Listings' to their websites - listings can be either physical products or information listings.
A product can have multiple "Variants". For example, you may have a product called "Round-necked T-shirt" and the variants might be "Small", "Medium" and "Large". Variants are the basic product units that you sell on Blipteam. You're not actually selling the "Round-necked T-shirt", you are selling individual variations of this product, which in this case are "Small", "Medium" and "Large". Variants of a product can have different prices and quantities and descriptions. Blipteam requires you to have Variants for each product. If your product has only one variant then you have to enter one variant with a price and quantity. When you delete a product, you delete all its variants as well. Here are some examples of products and variants:
You can also specify available quantities for each product. For example you might have "100" Small t-shirts available in your inventory and you might have "12" open places on each of your Kenya Tours.
SKU stands for Stock Keeping Unit. You can specify SKUs for each one of your product variants to help you manage your product inventory and track sales. Here's an example: a "Red T-shirt, size Small" could be "T-Shirt-Red-S". SKUs are optional in Blipteam. We do not automatically assign SKUs at the moment.
Blipteam uses Stripe for payments processing. Stripe provides split payments, an essential feature for marketplaces that need to split payments between suppliers and the marketplace operator. Learn more about Stripe here >
At the moment, no. You will have to use the payment options provided in Blipteam.
When a site visitor leaves its shopping cart, currently the abandoned cart is lost.
The moment your customers are charged depends on the settings with your payment provider.
Just click on your 'Payments' tab and you can see your latest orders in the 'Orders' page.
Each order contains the buyer's contact details and shipping address.
