The Challenge

A niche marketplace with a small team, Wundercurves often struggled to deal with the amount of work needed to onboard new sellers, necessary to increase the product offering on their marketplace and thus attract more buyers.
However, as most smaller marketplaces know, if you're not able to offer sellers a comparable turnover to larger marketplaces, it can be hard to convince them to invest the time necessary to prepare their product data for a new sales channel. As such, Wundercurves, like most smaller marketplaces, were forced to take on this time consuming work themselves.

The Solution

Leveraging eCommeleon's existing integrations and templating capabilities, a tailor-made technical integration for Wundercurves as a marketplace was set up and implemented to include:

  1. Marketplace "Product Classification Scheme" (categories, attributes, requirements etc.).
  2. An ETL (extract, transform, load) connector for loading product data in the marketplace data format and pipeline specifics.
  3. An order feed, allowing Wundercurves sellers to receive orders from the marketplace directly into their existing order-management system.

Building upon this technical framework, many existing merchant integrations have been migrated onto eCommeleon within a very short time, resulting in immediate mutual benefits for both the merchant partners and the platform.

The Results

Since working with eCommeleon, the plus-size marketplace's sales and platform management say that "the merchant onboarding has consistently accelerated in speed and quality—for both the marketplace and the merchant partners."

  • The tailor-made integration provides new merchants with a smooth marketplace integration.

  • The "Convert Listings" feature enables the merchant partner to build upon existing marketplace listings in the same language (e.g., to convert their Amazon.de listings into a suitable format for Wundercurves.de)
