Custom marketplace platform for luxury watches and jewelry
Impact: Existek’s team built a full-fledged marketplace to connect customers with trusted watch and jewelry retailers. Covering the latest market tendencies and business requirements, they implemented a custom solution to capture industry specifications and support the exceptional user experience.
What’s the marketplace for?
The eCommerce platform is ideal for starting, running, or growing the business. AURONOS web store aims to extend the service area of our client. Considering the specifications of the watch and jewelry industry, we needed to develop a sophisticated solution to give users the best niche choice from the best market retailers.
The first functionality to address when implementing the eCommerce solution is to create a product catalog. We focused on bringing a clear and simple direction while combining product images and descriptions. We leveraged a well-organized categorization structure to cover all the categories and subcategories for watches and jewelry, including brands, item types, sizes, materials, etc. Besides, we embraced the visual presentation to attract customers and share the brand values.
Customizable and expanded filters
Enhanced filtering allowed the team to present additional functionality to streamline the user experience. Customizable filters make it easier for users to search through lots of items, help narrow or broaden a set of available products and find the desired item.
It has become one of the core functionalities, as the client already has an advanced ERP system used by luxury watches and jewelry wholesalers and retailers. The main project objective was to implement the full-fledged web store that goes in a bundle with this ERP and expand some of its functionality. For example, it provides one-click publishing of the items from storage in ERP into the platform catalog.
Multilingual platform accessibility
Everything is duplicated into three languages - English, German, and French, so the users can switch on the fly. The introduced web store is optimized for multi-languages as it enables content access in the preferred language, new market reach, and business expansion opportunities.
SEO-optimized functionality is essential for eCommerce platforms to improve the visibility of products, stay ahead of the competition, and attract more customers. It’s a reasonable decision to leverage SEO tools for the admin panel to change meta tags, product descriptions, headers, etc. Besides, we’ve implemented the full-text search so the users can find anything with the keywords.
The must-have feature of web stores to accept payments and provide customers with a seamless and secure payment experience. Payrexx became a reasonable solution as it provides 200+ payment methods, including Mastercard, Visa, Apple Pay, Google Pay, American Express, etc. By offering a variety of payment options, the business can cater to a broader range of customers, supporting higher conversion rates and increased sales.
Besides building a custom eCommerce platform, the development team worked on creating a full-fledged admin solution. The admin panel includes the set of necessary features to manage the watch and jewelry marketplace. It helps to manage available products, process orders, manage customers and sellers, gather analytics and insight, etc.
