Multi – Cart System – One Separate Cart for Each Shop

Nearby Shops has a multi-cart system. Which means that when a customer adds many items to the cart which involve more than one seller the items get added to separate carts instead of all going into one single cart. Where each cart represents a single separate seller.

The benefit of multi-cart system is that the orders fulfilled by different sellers are not mixed and there is a separate order for each different seller. This makes it easier to track and manage orders. And easier to understand where to obtain support when there is an issue with the delivery of the order.

Order Tracking with Live Status Updates

The end-users can track the current status of the order. They will receive live status updates though push notifications, E-mail and SMS when the order moves through the inventory.

For example : After placing the order the customer will receive an E-mail, SMS and push notification when the order is “accepted” by the shop owner, “packed” by the shop owner and “ready for delivery” and so on.

Location Based Filtering

When it comes to local shopping we can see that each shop (seller) has a limited delivery range. Which means that they can deliver only up to a certain distance. Therefore we need to ensure that the shop owners should not receive the order for delivery at an address located outside their delivery range.

Visibility of the shops and items get filtered by the location and distance of the customer from the shop (seller). The customer will see only those items and shops which can be delivered on its current location.

This ensures that shops don’t receive the orders with delivery address falling outside their delivery range.

Rating and Reviews for Items and Shops

The customers can rate and review the item. This is very essential for the buyers so that they can share their experiences and it helps them select the better product for their needs.

The customers can also rate and review the shops (sellers). It helps the end-user to know which shop is providing the better service and has a good behavior and keeps a good relationship with the customer.

The shops which provide better quality services get rewarded with better rating and reviews.
