The Pepperi Platform includes a B2B eCommerce module, allowing distributors to provide their customers with self-service ordering online, or using the Pepperi native apps (iOS and Android). Buyers receive credentials to log in to a branded environment, and see the catalogs, price lists and promotions relevant to them.
THE OPEN CATALOG ALLOWS POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS TO BROWSE YOUR PRODUCTS WITH NO LOGIN
The Open Catalog allows you to improve your marketing efforts, attract more traffic to your site and convert visitors to customers.
You can also enable a “sign up” link, converting your potential customers to customers who can place orders in Pepperi’s B2B ecommerce for online ordering.
PRESENT YOUR PRODUCTS ON YOUR WEBSITE USING EXISTING PEPPERI DATA, A FREE WORDPRESS PLUGIN, OR API
The Open Catalog has a modern look and feel, providing smart tools for search and filtering and uses the latest technologies for fast response time . All this, using existing Pepperi data and configuration tools.
Once the Open Catalog is configured in your Pepperi back office , you can then configure the layout on your WordPress site using the free Pepperi Open Catalog WordPress Plugin.
If you are not using WordPress for your web site, an API is provided to build your own headless design.
The open catalog includes several components:
- Exporter – The exporter takes the product data and UI definitions as defined in the Pepperi back office and exports them to a dedicated Elastic database – optimized for searches, filtering, and scalable for multi concurrent users.
- API - Once the data resides in the optimized Elastic database , Pepperi provides an API that can be used by customers to build their own headless design. It is also used by Pepperi as part of the out of the box Open Catalog solution.
- UI Components – out of the box Pepperi UI components designed for a product catalog such as a category tree, filters, search, product strip area and more.
