Create your own marketplace with Play.com Store Design
In October 2012, Rakuten launched an engaging and exciting new feature for merchants to use; the ability to create their own marketplace within the Play.com store. Developed in a similar way to the eBay store design process, Play.com’s innovative features allow you to build a creatively branded marketplace that sits within the Play.com website. This not only attracts an entirely new audience, but gives customers increased confidence to shop. With the ‘superpoints’ loyalty scheme, shoppers can earn points as they buy. In addition, subscriber and Rakuten mail tools allow consumers to stay up-to-date with their favourite brands, and provide you with a way to easily contact customers regarding promotions or new products.
Design your Play.com Store the easy way
After signing up for a PlayTrade account and having your products listed within the store, you can create your branded marketplace from within the interactive account interface itself. There are a variety of templates and predefined layouts to make the process simple, but you might discover that these are rather limited.
Luckily, ecommerce platform builder, Weblegs, is on hand to help if you want to delve a little deeper into your marketplace design. Our team of experts can work with you to create a stunning and custom branded store that slots perfectly into the Play.com environment. With access to the custom pages features, advanced code and HTML techniques, Weblegs will build a custom store with your own text and images. This ensures a consistent and streamlined shopping environment is provided to customers as they switch between Play.com and your personalised marketplace. For examples of the diverse and customised shopping portals that you can create, take a look at our play.com design online portfolio.
