  • Search sorting and filters
    Users can filter by price range, date of availability, or sort by name, price, or ratings.

(2) Guest checkout
No sign-in required for buyers, making the checkout process even more efficient.

(3) Through the seller portal, set bookings

  • By minutes and hours
    The seller can then set the duration, and a price for that duration. The number of bookings allowed per session can be set by the seller for each listing they upload.

  • By days, nights, weeks, or months (available at the end of November)

(4) Support for the order fulfillment flow
Through the merchant portal, sellers can manage bookings easily through an order list that is categorised into ‘Upcoming’ and ‘On-going/Past’.

(5) Scheduler
Additional features for sellers include an availability calendar, where sellers will be able to make specific dates unavailable for bookings (for public holidays, or personal vacation) whenever they upload a listing. Blocking specific hours will be available soon.

(6) Option to list add-on purchases
Sellers can list additional services that complement the main service and set their own prices for each.  Available at the end of November.

Build Your Marketplace

Please take note that once you have successfully completed the on-boarding process, it will not be possible for you to change your marketplace template.

And yes, we've heard you! You now have the option to use Paypal to receive payments on your marketplace. Link your marketplace to your Paypal account to give your buyers and sellers more payment options!
