Marketplaces are rapidly growing areas of the ecommerce business space, offering merchants and brands the benefits of making their stock available on ready-made selling arenas like Amazon, eBay and OnBuy. Physical stores closing due to the pandemic, global traffic, brand extension, risk-minimisation through diversification, mobile and multichannel consumers; these are some of the reasons why retailers of all types are flocking to marketplaces. Volo partners with a range of providers to deliver sustainable scale-up solutions with a dual focus on automation and quality.
Our technology partners either build connectors to integrate functionality into the Volo Origin platform or connect Origin and Vision to their customers' existing systems. For many of our integration partners, the first stopping point is our developer area.
Our managed services partners provide all around multichannel ecommerce services to their customers – typically merchants or brand retailers – and rely on Volo to deliver the underlying technology and functionality to fulfil these essential transaction processes. Managed services partners fully own the ongoing relationship with and support for their customers. Volo operates a revenue share model with managed services partners.
Our creative and design partners specialise in maximising buyer conversions by enhancing the visual and navigational side of the consumer experience. These custom services cover corporate brand and identity, store design for Amazon, eBay and other marketplaces, store design for Volo WebShops and other webstore platforms, and digital marketing and promotions.
Volo Origin is a comprehensive end-to-end ecommerce platform, with Volo vision providing the analytics and reporting. Origin is the ERP system for many sellers and can connect to the existing ERP systems of larger customers. Origin has direct connections to almost a hundred marketplace channels, web store platforms and providers of warehouse management, accounts, order management and dispatch/shipping systems.
Our reseller partners prefer to operate using the ‘sell through’ model, developing and securing the business themselves, contracting directly with their customers and operating a revenue share model with Volo depending on the specific partner agreement. We implement the Volo platform and our reseller partners retain the relationship with their customers. Contact us to open the discussion on becoming a reseller partner
Our referral partners are actively looking to increase the portfolio of solutions and services they can offer to their key customers. Following the ‘sell with’ model, we work with referral partners or on our own to build the case for investment in the Volo service. The referred customer contracts directly with Volo and we provide the ongoing support and account management, with the referral partner receiving their agreed referral percentage. Contact us to become a referral partner and / or to refer a customer.
