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.

Awesome for taking pre-orders + subscriptions

Reviewed 4 years ago

- Swell has been really easy-to-use, straight forward to set up and support has been really helpful. Whenever I have a question, I get a pretty good response straight away from their guy.

Pros

- In the past, I had used Kickstarter and Indiegogo to take pre-orders but when I wanted to transition to opening up an ecommerce store really quickly, I had to move to Shopify. - I've since discovered Swell, which can take pre-orders but then can easily transition into an e-commerce play without having to change platforms. I also wanted to take subscription payments without having to use any plug-ins,...

Cons

- If you're looking for a 'discovery' feature for your pre-order sales like on Kickstarter, then you won't find it on Swell. You need to promote this to your own audience yourself, but if you already have your market and you're looking for a fully branded solution then this is definitely the way to go.

Vendor response

Thanks for the review Liam, we loved hearing about what you're building!
