Challenges

Subscription model for products
Subscription model for products

Subscription is mostly used in service marketplaces. We had to reimagine its effect on product-related aspects like refunds, shipping and returns.

Promoted listings
Promoted listings

We had to figure out when promoted products were to be displayed, how to rank them and how this would impact search results and the buyer journey.

Collecting reviews
Collecting reviews

Reviews build trust and boost conversions, but new marketplaces struggle to collect them. Thus, sellers had to be able to share existing reputations.

Recurring shipments

Monthly subscriptions have many impacts on shipping. Use cases like pausing subs or address changes had to be handled to ensure good user experiences.

Our Approach to Tackle the Challenge

1Build
Feature-rich product listings

Product listings contain several features to make them more enticing. Except for a product description and image gallery, merchants can highlight up to five standout features, showcase unlimited reviews, and indicate monthly shipping dates.

Subscription options are flexible; in addition to monthly payments, merchants can set discounted pricing for quarterly, half-yearly and yearly payments.
