I want to build an exclusive (where you have to be proposed/invited to join the community by two existing members) high-end multi-vendor marketplace. Where a user - Buy, Sell & Rent anything | Find Services, Experiences, Products & Property | Request something specific.
The categories are services, experiences, products and places. Within those headers you can opt to either post a request (like on Fiverr) or post a listing as a provider, with various different listing types, and filters specific to different categories (eg. Cars, or property). The methods of transactions are: buying, selling, renting products and real estate or advertise your services for a fixed/variable fee. One can contact a provider through internal messaging service. Payments can be arranged through the site. I would like a sophisticated listing wizard. I also want the website to have a totally responsive design. If IOS and Android apps can be built easily for no extra cost that would be greats but is not at all essential. Monetisation model would be an annual tiered subscription model, for all participants in the marketplace.
In simple I want the site that has the luxury feel of [login to view URL] and for it to fulfil service requests like [login to view URL], rent property and do experiences like [login to view URL], and sell and rent items like [login to view URL], and for this to be seamlessly, so that a user could list all those different types of goods & services under their profile and connected to a single booking system if they should require one, and to be operated from a user dashboard. As an admin I would also like a marketplace dashboard to keep updated on analytics and information on my marketplace. I would also like some UI customisation.
I want to know which is the best option out of these multi-vendor marketplace software solutions: Arcadier, Shopify with Multi-Vendor Marketplace Extension, Magneto with Marketplace extension, WooCommerce, Sharetribe, YoKart!, CS-Cart Multi Vendor, Yelo and Cocorico, Dokan, IXXO, X-Cart, Mirakl, Marketify, JungleWorks - Tiger Marketplace, and Homey WP Extension. I also will want my marketplace to have web hooks. I would want to integrate functionality that the plugins & extensions listed below offer: algolia search, Google Analytics maybe even Mixpanel or Inspecetlet, Facebook conversion tracking, Facebook Pixel, Branch and New relic, maybe Webex for communication, Global Site tag. Google Tag Manager, some form of JetPack or Jumio Netverify, and re-CAPTCHA? Although these features may not be necessary.
I have tried Sharetribe Go and Tiger, but there is not enough customisation on UI, but the structure is what I want (I think). In essence I want to build a more comprehensive version of a website called Radio-hp.co.uk.
Attached below are a few mockups of landing/home pages and how they would work, a side by side view of grid and map for searches to do with renting, property, and offline services and experiences. I also have attached a excel doc to better show how I want categories to work in my website.
