Swissmade’s hassle-free selling boost
A watch marketplace. One of a kind for vendors across the US. Here’s the story of Swissmade.
Swissmade’s CEO, Daniel, channeled his watch passion with the marketplace. That focuses on hyperlocal functions. I.e., buyers get products from local sellers at a minimal delivery cost.
Being a niche marketplace, the challenges were many.
- Shipping was expensive
- Low population density
- Vendors were not trusting
- Navigation was hefty for buyers.
- Customer retention was difficult.
But Daniel knew that a niche marketplace would always have a loyal customer base. Hence, he came to us (the team at CedCommerce) for the custom solutions.
Where he received:
- Bulk product upload for vendors with the multivendor marketplace solution.
- Vendor messaging for direct interaction with the customer.
- Buyer ratings on products
- Vendor RMA for initiating returns from the buyer.
- Vendor stripe payment for splitting payment between vendors and Daniel.
This led to him enjoying a marketplace he had always dreamt of. Today, Swissmade has good customer support and the loyal base Daniel had been seeking.
