Finding the technological and logistical requirements to successfully build and manage a marketplace capable of scaling across geographies is an intricate challenge. Hundreds of sellers, customers, and products create a level of complexity many eCommerce solutions simply cannot handle.

DubaiStore, built on Broadleaf Commerce’s future fierce framework, empowers each one of the hundreds of vendors to competitively market products 24/7/365, without limitation as the marketplace continues to grow.

The Challenge

Providing a quality marketplace boils down to technology. Digital Economy Solutions desired to build an Amazon-style marketplace for the UAE. Growing vendor and catalog size needs required a solution capable of providing multi-vendor scalability.

Key Challenges

  • Marketplace management of hundreds of vendors
  • Site provisioning for each vendor
  • Integrated customer experience through browse and checkout
Dubai Store Challenge
Hundreds of vendors each require the ability to set up and manage their own stores pulling from a larger, combined product catalog. Supporting right-to-left templates, multiple payment options, catalog hierarchies, and the Arabic language were also vital to the new marketplace.

The Broadleaf Solution

Building with future-ready technology, the Broadleaf Marketplace and Multi-Site solutions were combined to provide the framework necessary to handle the complexity that comes with custom vendor onboarding processes. Customizations were made to support integrations to custom shipping and payment gateways and to integrate with other DES systems.
