What is new in Yo!Kart Version 8?
YoKart V8 aims to redesign the platform to enhance user experience and support product catalog feature for the portal admin to authenticate the product before listing online and allow easy product addition for vendors.
The major features and updates done in Version 8 are:
|UX focused redesign||After a complete redesign, Yo!Kart has become more User-friendly and been rechristened in a new avatar by taking into account the latest design UI/UX trends, and consumer/seller feedbacks. Our team has restyled both front end as well as back end. This has made managing your ecommerce store more seamless.|
|2.||New Catalogue Feature||One of the most innovative update in the current version of Yo!Kart is the catalogue feature that makes it easy for vendors to add products to the marketplace. Using this feature, marketplace owners can create a catalogue beforehand and all that the sellers have to do is just select the product from within the catalogue and set their pricing. The sellers can also request product addition for the products that are not in the catalogue.|
|3.||Multilingual||As ecommerce marketplaces are going global there is a need for them to be multilingual so that they can cater to local populace of different zones. Not all countries have their primary language as English. With Yo!Kart adding multilingual support, marketplace owners can easily cater to consumers without any language barrier.|
|4.||Multicurrency||Just like the above, each country has its own currency and in the current market dynamics it is crucial for multi-vendor ecommerce stores to offer pricing information as per local currency. The latest version of Yo!Kart has a built in feature that lets the admin set currency conversion value, allowing consumers and sellers to view prices in their preferred currency.|
|5.||Smarter Product Recommendation||The recommendation has also become smarter, with more streamlined weightages. This not only gives better suggestion to the consumers but also is useful in enhancing sales of the marketplace.|
