The concept of the ZALORA Marketplace was born out of a desire to provide a unique and exclusive platform for third-party sellers to kick-start their dreams of working in the fashion industry through selling their products via the Global Fashion Group (GFG) platform. Unlike traditional catalogs which operate on a B2C model, the ZALORA Marketplace acts as a bridge between customers and sellers. Through exclusive seller acquisition, comprehensive operational efforts and active engagement with sellers to build healthy and long-lasting relationships, the ZALORA Marketplace works via a highly collaborative model to provide a fun, transparent and fuss-free platform for both customers and sellers.
In order to encourage continued engagement and communication with sellers, the ZALORA Marketplace employs the use of the Seller Center platform which serves as a one-stop center for sellers to manage their stores. The platform allows sellers to create their own storefront in the ZALORA Marketplace, upload new images and content, manage prices and stock levels, process orders and invoicing as well as to obtain sales data & a financial overview on how their business is doing. Also present within Seller Center, the Seller Academy provides new sellers with a wealth of information on a wide variety of topics to aid them as they begin their journey with the Global Fashion Group.
Marketplace's seller acquisition managers (SAMs) are always on the lookout unique brands with limitless potential out in the market. With a keen eye for spotting new talent, SAMs are involved in the process even before onboarding takes place. From lead generation to getting to know the unique story behind each seller's boutique, SAMs will eventually sign on new sellers upon ascertaining their suitability.
Upon being signed as new sellers on ZALORA Marketplace, sellers will be handed to the Operations team. Ensuring that the day to day operations of the Marketplace are smooth and problem-free, the Operations team assists Sellers in the onboarding process by ensuring that they are able to meet certain KPI before pushing them out to the actual ZALORA Marketplace. The Operations team is also involved in the management of 3rd party logistics providers (3PLs) to ensure that the ZALORA Marketplace stays competitive in its shipping rates.
Once they have been successfully onboarded, new Sellers will be handed over to Seller Relationship Managers who will be the primary point of contact for Sellers from here on. The main job of this team is to foster a healthy and long-lasting relationship with Sellers by providing them with opportunities and offering tips and key industry insights to help sellers better market themselves.
