Perfect for setting up a marketplace

Reviewed 3 years ago

I find that a lot of platforms have been designed for non-technical or developer users in mind, but as a developer, I normally prefer to build out fully customized solutions from scratch. But for this particular project I was looking to test out a marketplace so I didn't want to invest significant time and resource into it if there was an easier option. There pretty much aren't many options out there that offer a powerful marketplace solution, without having to use 3rd party apps or plugins. Swell offered a native solution which is why I initially got started.

Pros

Having the headless theme was really useful because it meant I saved resources in having to hire a designer (which can also get really pricey really quickly). All the pre-settings were really well set up. It also meant I didn't have to build the front-end from scratch which saved me at least a few weeks of development time. We were able to launch pretty quickly, much sooner than I expected. I had initially factored a few months into the plan but we got Swell working for us in under a month. A huge plus is that Swell lets you use the latest tech instead of running on frameworks from 20 years ago. It's pretty good to be able to deploy on Netlify and Heroku.

Cons

Multi-currency is key, but I can see that's already on the product roadmap.

Vendor response

Thanks for the feedback! We're planning on releasing multi-currency / multi-language in Q1 this year.

Innovative headless ecommerce for developers

Reviewed 3 years ago

I would normally only recommend headless commerce to bigger clients as you need deep pockets to afford. Only well-backed startups or big companies can justify the price tag for the superior online experience. What I really love about Swell is that it lets you build a headless store out of the box. Plus, any developer after can build on it. Now I can afford to build headless solutions for a wide range of clients and know that it will fit well within their price range.

Pros

As an ecommerce developer, I actually have the choice to use a git-based workflow to deploy on Swell's hosting, or can also choose to use a CDN backed provider like Netlify or Vercel. There's a headless theme powered by Nuxt and Vue, which is a big differentiator as other headless solutions require you to develop the front-end solution from the ground up. Also, a key constraint I often encounter in Shopify or BigCommerce are product variant limitations, especially dealing with large ecommerce stores. With Swell, I can create unlimited product variants and attributes. This is a truly headless solution.

Cons

A stronger CMS, customer portal and multi-language solution.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review Tapan. We're looking forward to seeing what you build with Swell!

Very complacent support

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Looks good in theory but nothing works...

Cons

Very complacent support who doesn't take responsibility or show any proactivity. I've been struggling with trying to create an account since the past 2 FREAKING months!

Excellent Headless Option

Reviewed 3 years ago

- Would recommend it to anyone building a B2B marketplace, it gives you the flexibility of a custom platform without having to actually build from the ground up.

Pros

- Powerful solution for B2B marketplace selling scientific equipment. - Unbeatable price compared to other expensive enterprise ecommerce software on the market. - Strong agency partnership network with deep expertise - Swell was able to bring on the right agency partners for us to execute the project. Being able to draw out a roadmap to launch, flag out the key milestones and challenges and putting...

Cons

Really none at all. This solution has far outperformed my expectations, it has been a huge bang for the buck, and the team behind the product has been helpful, responsive, and ingenious solving our problems thus far.

Vendor response

Thanks for your review Stefan, we're stoked to hear it's doing well for Nowvac!
