Fiverr like marketplace
Is it possible to build a COMPLETE fiverr like market place using your themes and plugins.
I want to know what features are still not included (or under development) in taskhive service.
Please describe the marketplace you want to build or feel free to ask about specific features required for your site. While it’s not possible to fit 100% of Fiverr features into a WordPress theme (it would be bloated and non-scalable), it’s enough for 90% of niche marketplaces. For example, if you want to build a marketplace of fixed-price services (or digital downloads) like “I’ll do something for $123…” it’s already possible with TaskHive.
I am not much worried about themes that I will manage. I want to know about…are these services available ?
– freelancers posting microjob gigs
-options like posting basic gig 5$, advanced gig 10$
– Admin approval for gigs posting
-settlement of refund.
-What payment option you will provide
-Is there a paypal express ?
-Admin commission rates.
-client adding review to freelancers.
all of these are available/under development ?
Sure, these features are already available
– Freelancers can list fixed-price services (gigs).
– If you mean charging freelancers for posting gigs you can do this with Paid Listings extension (it’s free)
– You can approve/reject gigs
– Users can raise a dispute if there’s something wrong with the order and you can decide whether to make a refund or not
– You can use any payment gateways available for WooCommerce
– It’s possible to set the commission rate (also custom rates per-seller).
– Reviews are available (you can check the on the demo site)
Please note that all payments are sent to you (the site owner) first, then sellers can request a payout (depends on your payout policy and seller’s balance). You can find more details in the docs https://hivepress.io/docs/extensions/marketplace/ujjwaldeep 3 months ago
Does market place plugin generates auto invoice or takes care of country’s tax structure?
There’s no such feature at the moment, WooCommerce generates an invoice from the marketplace itself, you can also generate an invoice for sellers each time you process a payout (most marketplaces I’ve worked with do this). WooCommerce also adds VAT and other taxes automatically on checkout.
Hi Ihor. In continuation to Ujjwaldeep’s question about auto generation of invoices and tax rates, I have noticed that setting the tax rate seems difficult. When pairing Hivepress with WooCommerce and setting the tax calculation to “Yes, I will enter prices inclusive of tax” I suspect that the price vendors have set shouldn’t change when purchasing their services, hence when they submit their services the prices they choose to set for that service includes taxes. However, upon checkout it adds taxes to the buyer.
Example using TaskHive:
Vendor submits a service and puts a price of €100.
Buyer sees the service, and clicks “book”
Buyer sees the cart/checkout and now the price is €125 (assuming 25% tax rate)
But I want the buyer to see a total amount of €100 including taxes.
I actually don’t know whether this a question for you or WooCommerce? 🙂 Thanks!
This is strange, I’ll check this while developing the next Marketplace version, but I follow the official WooCommerce API for setting prices (set_price function) so the inclusive tax option should work fine.
Hi just saw this. You can set this at WooCommerce after you allow taxes go to tax settings page. The first question is how do you upload the products including tax or not select the appropriate and then the price will be deducted from what the seller has uploaded and wont add extra tax to the product.
I was wondering if the invoices for sellers has to be generated manually or there is a way to take or of that too?
Hi Ben. Thanks. I have marked the option “Yes, I will enter prices inclusive of tax” but when users buy products from my site tax is still added. What do I miss here?
Did you select to show the tax inclusive prices on WooCommerce and at checkout? Not sure what the problem could be. Cause it works for me since I set that I upload products with tax inclusive prices.
Thanks Ben. I realise that there was a difference between viewing the products in Safari and Chrome. When using Chrome while I was logged in to my admin account, the tax rates started to act weird. But when using Safari (and Chrome) without logging in to the admin account it was all fine. Thanks!
@ihor No need to look into this further for my sake. Sorry.
