Loop Generation

Marketplace app with multi-vendor functionality

Loop Generation, an ethically-minded fashion platform, approached ElifTech with a project to introduce multi-vendor functionality within their existing Shopify store. Loop Generation aimed to empower individual sellers to list their pre-loved clothing, accessories, shoes, and beauty products on their website. Loop Generation sought to optimize its product management and expand its collaboration with individual sellers to increase revenue.

The goal was to create a seamless experience for sellers, allowing them to submit products for verification and publication while maintaining a consistent user experience with the rest of the site.

About the client

Loop Generation is a retail platform dedicated to promoting sustainable fashion by offering high-quality pre-loved items for sale. With a physical store in London's Chelsea and a strong online presence, the company's mission is to contribute to circular fashion and sustainability by reintroducing fine fashion into the market.

Challenge

Loop Generation faced the challenge of enabling private sellers to sell their products through their e-commerce store. They explored various solutions, including building a multi-vendor system from scratch or creating a custom Shopify add-on. However, these options required substantial budgets. Our proposed solution was to leverage an existing Shopify multi-vendor app, integrate it into their store, and customize it to meet their specific needs. This approach was cost-effective and aligned with their budget constraints. One of the technical challenges was determining the full capabilities of the selected multi-vendor app and understanding its limitations. This required extensive communication with the app's support team to discuss possibilities, features, and customization options.
