Top API Integrations
Below are some of the most common API integrations used in Multi Vendor Marketplaces.
Payment & Payout Flow
Stripe, or collectively "Stripe Connect" - is the industry standard for marketplace payments.
Stripe Connect seamlessly handles buyer payments, platform commission fee deductions, and the seller payout flow in marketplaces.
We have very in-depth knowledge & experience with Stripe Connect. Beyond the payment & payout flow - We can also help implement a wide variety of different payment method options (Direct Debits, Bank Transfers, Wallets).
Alternatively, Escrow.com is another great marketplace payment provider.
Although Stripe Connect does offer "escrow-like" behavior, Stripe is not an escrow.
We generally recommend Escrow over Stripe if your marketplace deals with large transaction sizes and/or sells products & services that have unknown delivery dates.
Nylas API seamlessly integrates your users calendar. Your marketplace's seller's can seamlessly connect their calendars via Google and Microsoft OAuth.
Real-time calendar data retrieved from Nylas API can be used to block off unavailable dates and timeslots from your marketplace seller's booking calendar.
If your marketplace needs real-time calendar data, then Nylas is the perfect solution!
For certain types of marketplaces, such as Gig or Rentals & Bookings - fast, effective, and seamless communication between Buyers & Sellers is extremely vital to successfully converting & closing the sale.
The Socket.IO web socket API can be integrated to provide real-time chat between Buyers & Sellers.
