Multilingual Functionality

Multi-Language Functionality

The ability to communicate globally is now a make-or-break proposition for eCommerce retailers. Language is the dimension of service that directly influences the usability of a website, its acceptance with the culturally determined metaphors, preferences, and other attitudes of the target group.

Customers want to search for, learn, and buy products or services in their native languages.

Providing a website that is optimized for each language means you are giving customers a personalized experience (being able to understand a brand’s voice and vision easily) that not only helps to convert them but, they may return as customers and can also act as brand advocates.

Yo!Kart

A cloud-based machine translation service, i.e., MSN language API, is integrated within Yo!Kart multi-vendor, and it supports more than 60 languages. It is a proven, customizable, and scalable technology for automatic translation and equipped with features such as a bilingual dictionary and transliteration.

CS-Cart

CS-Cart multi vendor can display content in 26 different languages. The translations are available for the storefront, admin, and vendor panels.

RTL feature

RTL (Arabic, Farsi, Urdu, Hebrew, Just to Name a Few)

Being a representative of the intellectual heritage of 22 modern Arab countries of MENA (Middle-East and North Africa), Right-to-Left languages (RTL) provide an excellent opportunity for eCommerce businesses to increase their reach in the fastest-growing region.

Many eCommerce solutions are not compatible with RTL (they require additional customization on many fronts). So, business owners should be aware of the potential problems they may face and choose the solution accordingly.

Yo!Kart

At no additional cost, Yo!Kart multi-vendor offers the RTL design flip for the web platform as well as for Android and iOS apps(buyers). The Yo!Kart team looks at the overall business model such that all the activities have been appropriately localized for Middle East’s ethnography.

Example: Sawim.com - An online B2B platform designed to facilitate international trading and business partnerships between leading Saudi Arabian companies and the rest of the world.

CS-Cart

In CS-Cart, a right-to-left (RTL) design flip is offered at an additional cost.

Multi currency feature

Multicurrency

In the age of disruption and a constantly evolving payments landscape, companies have to understand their roles in the payments value chain.

A customer is more likely to buy or buy again when the whole process is simple and quick. Without the multicurrency option, you will never be able to achieve these two aims.

An eCommerce website must be completely configured to bill customers in the currency of their choice.

Yo!Kart

In Yo!Kart multi-vendor system, the prices can be displayed in different currencies. The marketplace owner can accept payments in any regional currency selected in the payment gateway. Further, with the help of an application programming interface (API), the owner can manage currencies automatically, hence staying up to date with the latest currency conversion rates.

CS-Cart

In CS-Cart multi-vendor, prices can be displayed in different currencies. Its live currency convertor is an add-on feature; you have to pay extra for it.

Elastic search

Elastic Search

Product information retrieval takes too long on eCommerce marketplaces that have massive databases. The relational database works very slowly while fetching search results through database queries.

ElasticSearch is a document-oriented database specially designed to store and retrieve structural, unstructured, geo, metric, or any other type of data.

By integration, ElasticSearch, Yo!Kart multi-vendor provides following benefits to an eCommerce marketplace:

  • Helps to manage a vast amount of data and fetch the required search query within 10 ms.
  • Can make geo-localized searches.
  • It can collect analytic information that assists while calculating the performance of the products.
  • It can scale up to thousands of servers and accommodate petabytes of data.


Concludingly, Elastic search is well-suited for faceting, evaluate queries, logging & analytics, migration, text search, and enterprise search.

CS-Cart

Elastic search is not included in the base copy (it is an add-on feature). Further, many business owners found its integration with the marketplace hard.

Technical Support

“An eCommerce solution that comes with good technical support will often win over users as it gives them an assurance that there will always be someone on the other side of the line.”

Prospects want experiences marked by personalization, immediacy, and convenience. The quality assurance (QA) team is responsible for solving problems such as login errors, installation issues, and other difficulties that negatively affects the user experience.

yo-kart-logo

We offer free support for 1 full year from the date of system delivery. Additional support or annual maintenance contracts (AMCs) can be purchased based on the number of hours.

Yo!Kart’s Multiple-Channel Support

While our competitors are still in the strategy phase or struggling with how to provide a cohesive support experience across all touchpoints, we are many steps ahead of them. Yo!Kart provides multi-channel support in the form of online chat, social media, email, text messaging, and phone.

Apart from above, Yo!Kart has its very own project management tool, “Bizixx”, that can single-handedly address all of the client’s management-related requirements and issues. A client can directly assign any project-related task to the concerned person here and manage all the aspects of it.

Combining powerful communication features with project tracking capabilities, Bizixx has all essential functions such as budget tracking, account integration, file sharing, and more.

Multiple support channels

A dedicated business analyst is assigned to the client who then communicates on their preferred support channel. We align all channels in union where clients don’t feel like they are treated like a number.

Yo!Kart’s Agile Technical Support

Yo!kart agile development mythology

After implementing agile methodology to development, project management, and delivery process, the Yo!Kart team blended it with technical support. This step has transformed the entire eCommerce professional support process and unlocked the value to a greater extent. Yo!Kart follows the following four steps:

  • Categorize client’s issues around a particular problem and region.
  • Enable employees via workshops to empower them to think proactively about technical queries.
  • Creating a committed and problem-solving mindset.
  • Continuous improvement (adapting to changing customer needs).
Limited & Credit-Based CS-Cart Support

CS-Cart multi vendor offers free 90 days support. The credit-based support system is not based on time. For example - Questions about CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor functionality or how to set it up—5 credits and Complex code modification—from 20 credits. The transparency is further affected as the credits charged can be changed if the CS-Cart team discovers more facts.

Performance

The success of an eCommerce marketplace depends upon crucial factors such as user experience, secure transaction, mobile responsiveness, quick load time, customer data security, and more.

Poor online store performance reflects poorly on the company as customers start looking for the same products or services on the competitor’s website. Moreover, Google considers factors such as page load time while determining search engine results ranking.

Yo!Kart

Yo!Kart goes through 1000+ tests during automated testing. The multi-vendor marketplace solution is tested for 1 million products and 250+ concurrent users with a 100% pass rate. Yo!Kart has passed every other typical test type, such as Usability testing, security testing, database testing, mobile testing, and A/B testing.

Progressive Web Apps (PWA)

To improve the user experience (UX), visitor engagement, and conversion rates, Yo!Kart also provides PWA. Once installed, the user goes straight to the website after tapping the icon.

Benefits of PWA for eCommerce Businesses:
  • Online Marketplaces with PWA run smoothly both as a native app and web page.
  • PWA is much cheaper to develop, deploy, promote, and maintain than native apps.
  • PWA allows the user to keep on browsing without an internet connection.
  • Online Marketplaces developed with PWA will function on mobile devices without any errors.
  • The loading time of PWA is 2-3x faster when compared with m-dot or other responsive web stores.
  • Cached assets reduce server load that leads to fewer data requirements.

CS-Cart

CS-Cart multi vendor gives only a buyer mobile app at a monthly subscription cost of $90. Seller App & Progressive Web Apps are not available in cs cart.

Pricing

Nowadays, many eCommerce solutions use the following 3 approaches while deciding the price:

  • Undercharge for products (because of fear from global competition, lower barrier to entry in the niche, and increasing pricing transparency).
  • Overcharge for products (to get a quick return on investment)
  • Incremental approach (many business owners use existing products as their reference point)
Yo!Kart vs Cs Cart price

How Did Yo!Kart Team Decide the Price?

The Yo!Kart team’s pricing decision was based on an expansive rather than an incremental approach. We began price-benefit analysis before the development phase and decided which attributes customers are most willing to pay for. We further did perceptual mapping and conjoint analysis to determine how much value each feature offers to customers.

Cost of Self-hosted Multi-vendor Marketplace Solution

Yo!Kart

Yo!Kart provides 3 pricing packages i.e. Go Quick ($999), GoCustom Lite ($3,999), and GoCustom ($6,999). The latter two comes with the option of flexible payment policy. The upfront amount is 40%, and the rest can be paid after 3 months.

This allows an entrepreneur to start an online business with minimal investment effort. A domain name with extension “.store” is offered as a freebie with the purchase of Yo!Kart multi-vendor solution. Furthermore, Yo!Kart offers a 30-days money-back guarantee.

Note: All the features and functionalities are available in the 3 packages. The difference comes only with the design.

  • GoQuick: Default Design
  • GoCustom Lite: Partial Custom Design
  • GoCustom: Full Custom Design
Check Yo!Kart Packages
CS-Cart

Like Yo!Kart, CS-Cart also offers 3 pricing packages i.e. Multivendor ($1,450), Multivendor Plus ($3,500), and Multivendor ultimate ($7,500). The basic difference between packages is features and functionalities as the custom design option is not available in any of the packages.

The most expensive package, “ Multivendor ultimate ($7,500)” is the only one that has all the features. The remaining 2 lacks some of the features and functionalities.

Important Note: Yo!Kart base copy (GoQuick) has equipped with most of the features that are available in CS-Cart’s Multivendor Ultimate package.

Hosted Solution (Pricing):Yo!Kart’s Special Package for Startups

Yo!Kart

A business owner wins over their rivals by investing in Android and iOS applications, as there is no guesswork that mobile technology presents an opportunity.

Online Demos

Online Demo

Experiential marketing and in-store product demonstrations are important aspects of a buyer’s journey. You can take a prospect who is unfamiliar or very little familiar with your product or services on a journey where they get to know how it works and other information that helps them to make a buying decision.

Important aspects of product demonstration:

  • Validate that the product does what it says.
  • Explain the product’s features and its benefits in a way that doesn’t feel like selling.
Yo!Kart

As a startup, an entrepreneur has to wear different hats to make ends meet. He may have to market, provide customer support, manage orders, and more. The list of activities can be endless and scary (for some) at first for a one-person team.

One can quickly gain confidence by exploring the features of Yo!Kart multi-vendor solution separately as admin, buyer, and seller.

Accessible (Open) Yo!Kart Demo Links

We provide links to online demo that can be accessed by anyone whether they are accessing the demo from the comfort of their home, at a coworking space, or from an office giving a presentation to C-level executives on building eCommerce capability for the organization.

Understand Product Demo amid Complex Customization Requirements

The Yo!Kart multi-vendor solution is being used by large enterprises as well. While working with large organizations, we observed their common pain points, such as multiple meetings, frequently changing requirements, and complex customizations to complement their business models resulting in a longer sales cycle.

As a solution, we did two things - give a personalized or on-site demo.

Personalized Demo

During the personalized demo, we walk you through each feature and answer your questions. During the session, we also get to understand your exact requirements and elaborate on what changes will be required to solve your business objectives. Usually, such a demo is conducted over Skype by sharing the screen.

On-Site Demo

A personalized demo may not necessarily bring convenience for a large organization as there might be hundreds of complex technical questions waiting to be answered on compatibility with already-deployed systems being used by the prospect, data transfer between a legacy system in use and Yo!Kart, and more.

After much homework, the on-site demo might prove to be an ideal option as it can reduce the sales cycle and enable the prospect to make an informed decision. If a prospect shows interest in an on-site demo, we do charge extra. If the total project cost is over 20,000 USD, then we don't charge the on-site demo fee. Learn More

CS-Cart

A personalized demo is given to a prospect willing to invest in CS-Cart multi-vendor. However, there is no open access to view the demo, and one has to provide contact details to gain access to the demo. Also, there is no information available on whether a prospect can receive an on-site demo of CS-Cart multi-vendor.

Post-Launch Marketing

“Ensure marketplace launch success by utilizing the post-launch stage”

The fact is that the long-term success of an online marketplace doesn’t solely rely upon the launch marketing strategies. How vendors & customers perceive and experience offerings are also important to measure.

The resulting expansions of niches and industries have propelled consistent growth in marketing norms and strategies. Four elements that are fast-changing and have a direct impact on post-launch eCommerce marketplace marketing are:

  • Science: Generating data about why customers behave as they do.
  • Substance: To go beyond messaging to shape the experiences of customers.
  • Speed: Marketers need new agility to coordinate and provide oversight at high speed.
  • Simplicity: Expanding geographical footprints and creating new arrays of digital specialties & channels.

Customization

The essence of any successful marketplace is customization and to the extent, where a company can redefine every system and process. If done correctly, customization eliminates several difficulties and gives one platform that is tailored specifically to their needs. It addresses several essential psychology concepts such as “analysis paralysis,” “cognitive dissonance,” and “over choice.” Easy customization is a must-have feature to scale and simplify the online marketplace to reach the widest market possible and to give a sense of importance and exclusivity to its customers.

Yo!Kart

Yo!Kart has a dedicated team that delivers additional customization. To add an extra layer of reliability, an additional 1-year warranty is provided on the work delivered.

Third-party Bloggers/Influencers Reviews

Empowered by social networks and websites, users now have more power to influence not only what they use but also what others use.

In other words, reviews regarding online multi-vendor marketplaces such as Yo!Kart and CS-Cart (cs-cart.com) are essential for an eCommerce entrepreneur to go through and make an informed decision. It matters what people are saying on third-party websites as they are mostly authentic and insightful for decision-makers. Here are a few reviews left by people who have experienced both solutions

Merchant Maverick

CS-Cart is not as user-friendly as Yo!Kart. It takes a bit more than your everyday web knowledge to operate your store (especially since you might have to work through some bugs). If you don’t have a solid understanding of code, you’ll need to hire someone who does.

Does the Base Copy of CS-Cart ($1,450) Support 53 Million Products? Demystifying the Facts

At various places on the web, CS-Cart has confidently showcased ShopClues with 53 million products as its premium client. Of course, they have to do it for marketing as apart from ShopClues, no other CS-Cart based marketplace supports more than 20K products.

The Yo!Kart team decided to analyze how CS-Cart base copy is supporting such a high number of products on ShopClues.

Our developers compared the HTML and CSS files of Shopclues with CS-Cart base copy. The important thing to mention here is our research has nothing to do with the existential crisis that Shopclues is facing nowadays.

Following interesting observations were recorded:
  • The initial review of the HTML and CSS files made us believe that we are looking at two very different systems. We haven’t found any original code of CS-Cart in Shopclues, but again this is the front end code and everything can be changed easily.
    It was quite impossible as we were completely sure that the platform like CS-Cart can’t misrepresent Shopclues as its client on multiple platforms. So, we made up our mind again and did an exhaustive comparison of both the platforms (CSCart and ShopClues).
  • Upon a deeper scan we observed that very rarely could we find CS-Cart framework-specific imprint on the front end data requests of ShopClues.
  • Also, the majority of JavaScript has been changed. More so the script for the AJAX files has been modified, barring some response parameters used in the script. The comparison implies that ShopClues’ 53 million products are not at all on the CS-Cart base copy, which further highlights that:
    • CS-Cart is not playing any role in the scalability and customization process of ShopClues as a platform
    • CS-Cart is not the support team of ShopClues. This statement further got weightage when we found that ShopClues has multiple vacancies and is looking for various profiles like Lead MySQL, Application Architect (LAMP), Database Architect (MySQL, NoSQL), etc.
Now a series of question arises:
  • Why ShopClues left CS-Cart and decided to expand (both customization and scalability wise) on their own?
  • Why ShopClues didn’t consider CS-Cart as a compatible solution to handle its 53 million products?
  • How many products can CS-Cart base copy handle?
  • Why there is no written claim by CS-Cart that 53 million products can be handled by its base copy?
  • Why no other CS-Cart based marketplace supports more than 20K products?

When we analyzed the financial part of ShopClues, we came to know the company has received 11 rounds of funding (approx. $253 million). It’s obvious that eliminating operational costs, ShopClues had to use a portion of this money in enhancing their marketplace by themselves, not with CS-Cart.

Yo!Kart

The scalability and customization in Yo!Kart is a metric of evolution that applies to both the platform and its mobile app.

We provide the live demo of Yo!Kart base copy ($999) which handles 1 million products. The upper cap is flexible as a business owner can get dedicated paid support to further optimize the product.

Moreover, a business owner doesn't need funding of $253 million to add more products or to scale his business. With Yo!Kart, one can list an infinite number of products by just investing a few thousand dollars.

Even after listing millions of products, the multi-vendor marketplace on Yo!Kart can maintain its function or performance and retain all of its desired properties without any increase in internal complexity.

No doubt, ShopClues has a large inventory. But do they have a business? The company is already acquired by Singapore-based Qoo10 in an all-stock deal valued at approximately 70 million USD. It is possibly the largest valuation meltdown for a venture-backed Indian startup.

On the other hand, Yo!Kart has clients like:
