One of Smart eCart’s key features is how it provides functionality for businesses for product and daily deal sites; Crowd Funding sites has the concept of sponsors replacing merchants but the functionality provided is very similar.
After a user has registered on your Smart eCart-powered site, they can also register their business and create a custom merchant/sponsor profile to be listed in the business/sponsor directory. All merchant/sponsor profiles must be approved by an administrator prior to them being published on the site. It is also possible for administrators to manually add new users, merchants (or sponsors) with profiles to the site.
Once a merchant/sponsor has been accepted by the administrator, they can begin submitting deals, products, projects, and downloads for review and publishing by the admin.
Business/Sponsor Directory and Profile
This directory displays information about the merchants/sponsors that have made offers available on your site. Customers can browse the directory to learn more about each business as well as filter businesses by type. In addition to basic profile information and customer reviews, profile pages include links to all a merchant/sponsors’ offerings.
Business/Sponsor Dashboards and Reports
After a merchant registers they can submit deals, products, and projects; view their sales history, purchase reports, and voucher reports; and manage their own profile and their customer vouchers.
