Within magento which are the ideal extensions for the construction of a large and complex platform such as Aliexpress or Alibaba, if you have them?

Re: What is the best complement to create a platform like Aliexpress?

Hi @andres _fernandez

 

Well - the question is very short but with broad and cryptic meaning !

 

Directly coming on the question - Magento is a standard as well as B2B e-commerce platform same like  other e-commerce platform with common and global functionality

 

AliExpress and Alibaba - have huge functionality in it either it is from frontend and for backend
operations as well

 

Yes - Magento is also that much scalable and flexible enough to create that kind of platform - but for that it requires a huge amount of customization as well.

 

Same like those websites - Magento also going to release their PWA concept in Next Release as well So you can consider this platform for the same !

 

Coming back to extension part - Yes there are lot of extensions available to acheive this kind of functionality specially Marketplace concept !

 

As both platform you mention are marketplace as well - so in magento 2 first you required marketplace extension to achieve such functionality

 

Second thing for better and smooth product filtering you required advanced layered navigation kind of extension

 

Better search you can use Elastic search or any other search like Algolia etc.

 

For payment gateway side - whatever region you are targeting you can integrate payment gateway accordingly

 

This are the basic extension which you required - still there are many more but it will clear once you define proper BRD on the same !

 

Hope it helps

Re: What is the best complement to create a platform like Aliexpress?

if you are going to use magento + marketplace/multivendor extension - make sure that extension have very good support and future upgrades from its developer.

 

because many of them just built for money, not even for heavy use.

ive seen few of them, andtoo much extra work required to customize them and fixmany workload issues...

Re: What is the best complement to create a platform like Aliexpress?

I would like to start using Magento to build a demo of my web portal, which would be an intermediation platform or Marketplace, I have several doubts about it:
1. Can I do this from the local host?
2. Can I add a Marketplace extension to the local host?
3. I have been analyzing the most relevant Marketplace extensions, such as Ced Commerce, webkul Marketplace, Marketplace 2 Solution, Creative Mind Marketplace, VnEcoms, Apptha,
Do you know some of these and their functionality? Which of these could support the complexity of a robust platform like Aliexpress?
4. Do I need a domain for the extensions to work?
5. Can I customize this or any extension that is installed?
6. Could I lose these customizations in any way? 7. What should I do so that during testing, I can only see my website if I use a domain?
8. Once the store test is complete, what type of servers will you need for its operation?
As you can see, I am new in the world of magento and I would like you to guide me with your experience.
Thank you for your kind attention and I am waiting for your response.
