A Quick Overview of the Code Architecture

In general, FedML source code architecture follows the paper which won Best Paper Award at NeurIPS 2020 (FL workshop). Its original idea is presented at the live video and white paper by FedML co-founder Dr. Chaoyang He.

FedML Code Architecture

After March 2022, FedML has been upgraded as an AI company which aims to provide machine learning capability anywhere at any scale. Now the python version of FedML https://github.com/FedML-AI/FedML- /tree/master/python is reorganized as follows:

core: The FedML low-level API package. This package implements distributed computing by communication backend like MPI, NCCL, MQTT, gRPC, PyTorch RPC, and also supports topology management. Other low-level APIs related to security and privacy are also supported. All algorithms and Scenarios are built based on the "core" package.

data: FedML will provide some default datasets for users to get started. Customization templates are also provided.

model: FedML model zoo.

device: FedML computing resource management.

simulation: FedML parrot can support (1) simulating FL using a single process (2) MPI-based FL Simulator (3) NCCL-based FL Simulator (fastest)

cross_silo: Cross-silo Federated Learning for cross-organization/account training

cross_device: Cross-device Federated Learning for Smartphones and IoTs

distributed: Distributed Training: Accelerate Model Training with Lightweight Cheetah

serve: Model serving, tailored for edge inference

mlops: APIs related to machine learning operation platform (open.fedml.ai)

centralized: Some centralized trainer code examples for benchmarking purposes.

utils: Common utilities shared by other modules.

Simplified APIs

drawing 
 

Our philosophy of API design is to reduce the number of APIs to as few as possible while simultaneously keeping the flexibility.

For Simplicity, FedML Parrot has only one line API as the following example with fedml_config.yaml (an example is here: https://github.com/FedML-AI/FedML/blob/master/python/examples/simulation/sp_fedavg_mnist_lr_example/fedml_config.yaml)

# main.py

import fedml

if __name__ == "__main__":
    fedml.run_simulation()
python main.py

You will get the following output:

[FedML-Server(0) @device-id-0] [Sun, 01 May 2022 14:59:28] [INFO] [__init__.py:30:init] args = {'yaml_config_file': '', 'run_id': '0', 'rank': 0, 'yaml_paths': ['/Users/chaoyanghe/opt/anaconda3/envs/mnn37/lib/python3.7/site-packages/fedml-0.7.8-py3.7.egg/fedml/config/simulation_sp/fedml_config.yaml'], 'training_type': 'simulation', 'using_mlops': False, 'random_seed': 0, 'dataset': 'mnist', 'data_cache_dir': './data/mnist', 'partition_method': 'hetero', 'partition_alpha': 0.5, 'model': 'lr', 'federated_optimizer': 'FedAvg', 'client_id_list': '[]', 'client_num_in_total': 1000, 'client_num_per_round': 10, 'comm_round': 200, 'epochs': 1, 'batch_size': 10, 'client_optimizer': 'sgd', 'learning_rate': 0.03, 'weight_decay': 0.001, 'frequency_of_the_test': 5, 'using_gpu': False, 'gpu_id': 0, 'backend': 'single_process', 'log_file_dir': './log', 'enable_wandb': False}
[FedML-Server(0) @device-id-0] [Sun, 01 May 2022 14:59:28] [INFO] [device.py:14:get_device] device = cpu

...

You can also customize the hyper-parameters with fedml_config.yaml. Check this tutorial for one-line example for details.

For flexibility, one-line API can also be expanded into five lines of APIs. To illustrate this, now let's switch to FedML Octopus (cross-silo federated learning) as example (Source code: https://github.com/FedML-AI/FedML/tree/master/python/examples/cross_silo/mqtt_s3_fedavg_mnist_lr_example).

In this example, the FL Client APIs are as follows:

import fedml
from fedml.cross_silo import Client

if __name__ == "__main__":
    args = fedml.init()

    # init device
    device = fedml.device.get_device(args)

    # load data
    dataset, output_dim = fedml.data.load(args)

    # load model
    model = fedml.model.create(args, output_dim)

    # start training
    client = Client(args, device, dataset, model)
    client.run()

With these APIs, you only need to tune the hyper-parameters with the configuration file fedml_config.yaml. An example is as follows:

common_args:
  training_type: "cross_silo"
  random_seed: 0

data_args:
  dataset: "mnist"
  data_cache_dir: "./../../../data"
  partition_method: "hetero"
  partition_alpha: 0.5

model_args:
  model: "lr"
  model_file_cache_folder: "./model_file_cache" # will be filled by the server automatically
  global_model_file_path: "./model_file_cache/global_model.pt"

train_args:
  federated_optimizer: "FedAvg"
  client_id_list: 
  client_num_in_total: 1000
  client_num_per_round: 2
  comm_round: 50
  epochs: 1
  batch_size: 10
  client_optimizer: sgd
  learning_rate: 0.03
  weight_decay: 0.001

validation_args:
  frequency_of_the_test: 5

device_args:
  worker_num: 2
  using_gpu: false
  gpu_mapping_file: config/gpu_mapping.yaml
  gpu_mapping_key: mapping_default

comm_args:
  backend: "MQTT_S3"
  mqtt_config_path: config/mqtt_config.yaml
  s3_config_path: config/s3_config.yaml

tracking_args:
  log_file_dir: ./log
  enable_wandb: false

Now let's run some examples as follows to get a sense of how FedML simplifies federated learning in diverse real-world settings.

FedML Parrot Examples

Simulation with a Single Process (Standalone):

  • sp_fedavg_mnist_lr_example: Simulating FL using a single process in your personal laptop or server. This is helpful when researchers hope to try a quick algorithmic idea in small synthetic datasets (MNIST, shakespeare, etc.) and small models (ResNet-18, Logistic Regression, etc.).

Simulation with Message Passing Interface (MPI):

Simulation with NCCL-based MPI (the fastest training):

  • In case your cross-GPU bandwidth is high (e.g., InfiniBand, NVLink, EFA, etc.), we suggest using this NCCL-based MPI FL simulator to accelerate your development.

FedML Octopus Examples

Horizontal Federated Learning:

Hierarchical Federated Learning:

  • hierarchical_fedavg_mnist_lr_example: an example to illustrate how to run hierarchical federated learning in data silos (hospitals, banks, etc.). Here hierarchical means that inside each FL Client (data silo), there are multiple GPUs that can run local distributed training with PyTorch DDP, and then the FL server aggregates globally from the results received from all FL Clients.

How to Create a Marketplace: Pay in, Pay out

Shopping online is more convenient than ever, so how do you create an online marketplace tailored to cater to your specific needs? In this article, Toptal JavaScript Developer Konrad Gadzinowski explores marketplace business models and payment methods for both regional and global services.

In today’s mobile era of the internet, we tend to shop online more often than ever before. We can attribute it to the fact that it’s infinitely easier to compare products from different sellers online, often from the comfort of our sofa. As a result, we tend to shop at online marketplaces that connect various providers of goods and services with potential clients.

eCommerce businesses have a much easier time acquiring customers, and clients can find online retail shops or service providers with the best reviews, without much risk of getting tricked into a bad deal.

Marketplace Business Model

In this new world of centralized sales, we can distinguish between two main approaches to conducting business.

Marketplaces act either as brokers, charging providers a commission for their services, or as final sellers, adding their own markup to vendor pricing.

Marketplace Types

Broker

 

Broker system

 

In a broker system, the marketplace operates as a marketing company. It charges vendors a commission for each generated sale. Payments are processed either directly between sellers and buyers or through a third-party payment provider.

In most countries, in this system, the marketplace can’t really process payments directly, as an intermediary, unless it obtains a finance business license required to do so. Therefore, in order to process payments through the platform, a third-party payment processor is required.

In this scenario, responsibility for defective products can be shifted to the actual sellers, since the marketplace acts merely as a sales platform.

Distributor

 

Distributor business model

 

When the marketplace acts as a distributor, it effectively buys goods or services from its vendors and sells them to the clients for a profit.

It’s the most traditional business model. Payment processing in this scenario is easy and can be simply done by the platform itself. All purchases from sellers can be deducted from marketplace income, and all sales can be considered revenue. In theory, businesses operating according to this model can generate much greater revenues, since all operations are going through their books.

It’s also worth noting that an online marketplace takes all responsibility for defective products since it acts as a distributor.

Most Popular Payment Methods

Depending on the country, different payment methods and providers might be used. To simplify the current state, let’s go through some of the possible payment processors, depending on a marketplace business model.

Overview of Payment Processors

Selected payment processors in the broker model:

GlobalUSAEUUK
HyperwalletDwollaPayUPaybase
BraintreeWePayMANGOPAYNochex
PayPal for MarketplacesStripe ConnectAdyenSafeCharge

 

Selected pay-in methods in the distributor model:

Global

Serving a global audience is never easy. Different countries use different currencies and legislative frameworks, have different cultures and languages, and often prefer different local payment methods.

Some providers try to reconcile these differences and potential obstacles.

Broker

HYPERWALLET

Hyperwallet is an enterprise payout solution used by some of the most popular online brands out there. It is a great fit for large, established eCommerce businesses.

BRAINTREE MARKETPLACE

Braintree is a scalable payment solution for marketplace businesses. It supports all the biggest markets and can help you create a marketplace that supports North America, Europe, and Oceania.

PAYPAL FOR MARKETPLACES

PayPal is definitely the most popular global payment platform. It grew on the back of eBay and doesn’t need much introduction. It’s supported in almost every country, the API is easy to implement, and you can create an account very quickly.

Distributor

Pay-in Methods

WIRES

Bank wires using the SWIFT network are the most reliable method available worldwide. Unfortunately, it’s also often the most expensive option for sending money.

TRANSFERWISE

TransferWise allows you to create borderless accounts. It gives you an option to send and receive local payments in a large number of countries. Fees paid for local transfers are often small, and you have an easy option to convert currencies.

STRIPE

Stripe is a debit and credit card processor available in all big countries. It also allows the processing of ACH debit payments in the US. It allows you to quickly create an account and start work on your application.

Payout Methods

WIRES

Once again, international SWIFT wires are the easiest and most accessible option to use. The cost of a transfer is going to be a factor when deciding whether to use this method or not.

TRANSFERWISE

TransferWise allows you to pay your providers in almost every country. It’s relatively inexpensive and allows you to use different currencies.

PAYPAL

PayPal is the most popular payment platform used in most countries around the globe. They charge a fee for each payment, so they might become quite expensive over time.

USA

Broker

DWOLLA

Dwolla allows you to easily accept and send ACH payments using nothing but bank accounts. It’s developer-friendly with a lot of possibilities on how to use it.

WEPAY

WePay is a powerful platform underpinned by Chase bank. It’s designed for broker marketplaces, making it a perfect fit for a US-only platform.

STRIPE CONNECT

Stripe Connect is a very developer-friendly solution that is adapted to broker marketplaces. It’s specially designed to meet US market needs.

Distributor

Pay-in Methods

WIRES, ACH CREDIT, CHECKS

When it comes to accepting payments, the easiest way is to just accept bank-to-bank solutions. Paper checks, ACH credit, and wire payments are easily available. Despite availability, the time and cost involved in processing might be a serious issue.

AUTHORIZE.NET

Authorize.Net allows you to accept payments through credit, debit cards, and an ACH debit (eCheck). It’s a well-known Visa company.

SQUARE

Square offers a whole range of solutions for both in-store and online sellers. It does offer good API for developers, but they seem to only offer accepting payments through debit and credit cards.

Payout Methods

ACH CREDIT TRANSFERS

The easiest way to send payouts at scale is through ACH credit transfers, which are provided by banks that are part of Nacha and can be extremely cost-effective. ACH payments have a limit of $25,000 per transaction.

Chase bank offers this payment system as an additional option.

Wells Fargo offers it as Direct Pay.

Some time ago, Airbnb Co-founder Nathan Blecharczyk wrote about this payment system in his Do-it-yourself ACH direct deposit article.

WIRES

This is one of the easiest ways of sending money electronically. Unfortunately, US banks charge high fees for both sending and receiving it. For that reason, they should be used only when transferring large amounts of money.

CHECKS

Using checks is one of the simplest ways of transferring money in the US. Unfortunately, it’s slower and more troublesome than other methods.

European Union

Broker

PAYU

PayU is a well-established marketplace payment provider. It’s used by some of the biggest local eCommerce platforms in Europe and is a safe choice.

MANGOPAY

MANGOPAY is a marketplace payment processor available in all EU countries. It seems to be well-adapted to the needs of an EU-wide market platform.

ADYEN

Adyen is a less-known payment processor provider that supports all EU countries. It uses local payment methods, which is an additional advantage.

Distributor

Pay-in Methods

WIRES

Wires are very popular in the Eurozone, as well as in non-Eurozone countries. It’s because they are, for the most part, free to send and work really fast, usually delivering same-day transfers. Euro payments are sent using the SEPA network.

PAYMILL

PAYMILL allows you to start accepting card payments online. Its biggest focus is on payments in euros.

PAYLANE

PayLane can provide you with access to online card payments, as well as a gateway for bank-to-bank payments. It’s especially well-adapted to the needs of the Polish market.

Payout methods

WIRES

Within the European Union, the SEPA wire transfer is all you need when it comes to payouts. They are fast, usually same-day, and often free, even for international transfers.

UK

Broker

PAYBASE

Paybase is a London-based marketplace payment provider. They provide eMoney accounts with individual sort codes and account numbers.

NOCHEX

Nochex is an enterprise solution for marketplace platforms. They provide custom solutions for UK-based customers.

SAFECHARGE

SafeCharge provides payment solutions for UK-based marketplaces. They offer decent API documentation for developers.

Distributor

Pay-in Methods

WIRES

Bank transfers are a free and fast method of sending money in the UK. They are accessible to everyone and easy to use. It’s the most convenient method of accepting large payments in a distributor model.

SAGE PAY

Sage Pay is a UK-focused payment provider. It supports both in-store and online merchants. Unfortunately, their developer guide is not accessible publicly.

WORLDPAY

Worldpay can provide you with online card payments. They are well-adapted to the UK market and provide easy-to-follow developer guides.

Payout Methods

WIRES

When it comes to payouts within the UK, wire transfers are really all you need. They are free, fast, and easily available. They will allow you to pay anyone in the United Kingdom.

Potential Risks

When choosing your payment processor partner, you should check their reputation before you start working with them. Even some of the biggest providers have terrible reviews.

The best example might be PayPal, which is known for blocking user accounts without any warning and freezing money stored there for up to six months.

Stripe is a company that has arguably the best technology available on the market and is known for being very developer-friendly. Unfortunately, they also have a history of blocking accounts in the middle of the night without any warning.

For these reasons, it might be wise to keep your payment implementation generic so that it will be easy to switch providers if you happen to get shut down overnight.

When processing card payments, you need to be aware of the chargeback procedure. Sometimes, a customer doesn’t recognize a card transaction or is dissatisfied with the service or product. In such cases, they might contact the seller and try to resolve the issue.

If the problem isn’t solved, they might dispute this card transaction with their bank. If the financial institution finds that the customer was right, the money for this transaction is taken out of the seller’s account. Payment processor companies don’t like chargeback disputes because they are liable for all reimbursed transactions. Therefore, they are quick to drop high-risk merchants.

ACH payments are also prone to chargebacks if a transaction was unauthorized or the amount debited differed from the authorized amount. You can find out more here.

Such risk doesn’t occur when accepting wire transfers. Therefore, wire transfers may be the safest method when accepting large payments.

Local Is Often Better

Because of problems that might occur when cooperating with payment processor companies, it might be better to work with local providers. Compared to foreign-based providers, local companies often offer better cooperation, easier communication, and more trust in you.

Additionally, in case of serious problems or losing access to your money, it is always easier to start legal action against a local company than a foreign organization.

Alternative Crypto Method - USD Coin

Cryptocurrencies are becoming increasingly popular, though they are still not a common choice for online payments. Because of serious price fluctuations and volatility concerns, most cryptocurrencies are not suitable for day-to-day financial transactions.

Still, it might be worth looking into stable coins. One such example is the USD Coin (USDC). It’s an Ethereum-powered coin that is redeemable with USD at a 1:1 ratio.

It can be sent quickly and inexpensively anywhere in the world, which is a clear advantage that makes it a perfect alternative to the slow and often expensive international transfers.

It’s also very easy to start accepting payments in USDC by simply using Coinbase Commerce.

There are some serious downsides to cryptocurrencies as they still have a stigma of being used for illegal transactions. That might cause additional scrutiny and investigations when redeeming them to fiat currency in larger amounts. What is more, traditional banks in the US are known to close bank accounts of people who use cryptocurrencies.

At the time of writing, according to ETH Gas Station, the standard transaction cost in the Ethereum network is around $0.007 and takes less than five minutes to settle. Those are very attractive parameters. One might wonder if cryptocurrencies might be a good fit for microtransactions. Unfortunately, because of the varying time and price of transfers, they seem like a risky choice. Furthermore, the effort and cost to acquire cryptocurrency to start with can be an additional problem, especially in some parts of the world.

For these reasons, an alternative cryptocurrency approach might not be ready for prime time just yet.

Simple Marketplace Payment Implementation

With all the information presented so far, let’s go ahead and create an actual marketplace for demonstration purposes!

It will be a simple, generic eCommerce marketplace using the distributor business model. We will adapt it to the US market, but it could be easily accommodated to work with other countries as well.

As a payment method, we will accept:

  • ACH credit transfers
  • Wire transfers
  • Credit and debit cards using Stripe

Stripe was chosen as the payment processor because it’s available in many countries, its developer guide is great, and it takes just a few minutes to create an account. As a result, their services are easily available to a wide range of potential users.

As a payout method, we will simply use ACH payments, which - as mentioned before - can be easily provided by banks or TransferWise.

The marketplace implementation is publicly available on GitHub.

Marketplace Design

 

Marketplace Design

 

The marketplace supports admin users that are able to issue invoices and payouts. They also have access to the dashboard, where they are able to see the list of transactions and search through them. At the top of the dashboard, you can typically find a financial summary of all transactions.

Guest users have access to the landing page and are able to view and pay invoices as well as view payouts.

Upon activating the application, the user is prompted to create an administrator account. After that, they need to set up Stripe API keys and bank account details for ACH credit and wire payments.

At this point, we can start issuing transactions!

The administrator can easily create invoices and payouts from the dashboard. Information about them will be sent to a specified email address. Alternatively, an invoice or payout URL can also be shared manually with the recipient.

Customers can easily pay invoices using a debit or credit card. It supports 3D secure payments, which shields sellers from chargeback in the event that a stolen card is used.

This simple marketplace can be used anywhere where a distributor business model makes sense. Here are some examples of such businesses:

  • Accounting services
  • Marketing services
  • Construction services
  • Cleaning services
  • Various B2B businesses
  • Car rentals
  • House rentals
  • Wholesalers

Despite the simple design, it can greatly improve the lives of small business owners.

Marketplace Walkthrough

DASHBOARD

On the main page, we can see a list of all transactions as well as a table with a financial summary. From here, the user can add new invoices and payouts and edit the existing ones.

 

Dashboard

 

UNPAID INVOICE

Once a new unpaid invoice is created, the client is presented with an option to pay either through a card payment or a bank transfer.

 

Unpaid Invoice

 

CARD PAYMENT

Card payment is a convenient way to pay the invoice. Once this option is selected, the user is presented with a dialog where they need to specify a few details and confirm the transaction.

 

Card Payment

 

PROCESSING CARD PAYMENTS

Once the card payment is confirmed, we need to wait until it’s processed by the payment processor. During this process, the invoice page is blocked with a spinner loader to indicate that everything is going smoothly and that the transaction will settle soon.

 

Card Payment Processing

 

PAYMENT VIA BANK TRANSFER

If the client decides to pay with a bank transfer, they will be asked for bank account information, which should be sufficient to either send ACH or wire transfer. It can be easily copied with a button to the right in each row.

 

Payment via Bank Transfer

 

INVOICE PRINTOUT

Invoices can be printed using the print button in the top right corner. It can be useful for accounting purposes or to execute a bank transfer in a branch.

 

Invoice Printout

 

PAID INVOICE

Once an invoice is paid, the payment option is removed to avoid duplicate payments. A clear green status label is displayed.

 

Paid Invoice

 

PAID PAYOUT

The payout design is similar to the invoice. The status indicator and all the data are clearly visible.

 

Paid Payout

 

PAYOUT PRINTOUT

Payouts can also be easily printed with the print button in the top right corner. Printouts can be used for documentation purposes.

 

Payout Printout

 

The Code

This web application is created using TypeScript, the scalable answer to JavaScript. This language is used on both the client- and server-side. You have an option to run this application in development and production mode. When in production, it will start multiple threads to use as many cores as possible.

As a database, it uses MongoDB. It’s a very popular NoSQL solution for storing documents.

On the UI front, it uses the Bootstrap library and SCSS for managing styles.

Code architecture on both client- and server-side follows a modular pattern. This approach was described in the following article: Creating Truly Modular Code with No Dependencies. It makes code maintainable and easy to reuse by other people.

All the details are available in the project readme file so that it will be easy to deploy this application to production as well as continue development on your own.

Summary

The traditional online marketplace business structure is very popular because it provides a fast and safe shopping experience for customers. We can choose our approach from the two most popular models: broker or distributor system.

Depending on the country that you want to operate in, you can go with a payment processor that best suits your needs. In some cases, a bank account alone will be enough, but if you are catering to an international or global audience, you will need more payment options.

To kick off your journey with online marketplaces, you can use the basic implementation described in this article. I hope you will find it useful and that it will help you grow your business.

Aimeos Laravel ecommerce package

Aimeos Laravel ecommerce package

⭐ Star us on GitHub — it helps!

Aimeos is THE professional, full-featured and ultra fast e-commerce package for Laravel! You can install it in your existing Laravel application within 5 minutes and can adapt, extend, overwrite and customize anything to your needs.

Aimeos Laravel demo

Table of content

Supported versions

This document is for the Aimeos Laravel package 2021.10 and later.

  • LTS release: 2021.10 (6.x, 7.x and 8.x)

If you want to upgrade between major versions, please have a look into the upgrade guide!

Basic application

Full shop application

If you want to set up a new application or test Aimeos, we recommend the Aimeos shop application. You need composer 2.1+ to install Aimeos.

It will install a complete shop system including demo data for a quick start without the need to follow the steps described in this readme.

wget https://getcomposer.org/download/latest-stable/composer.phar -O composer
php composer create-project aimeos/aimeos myshop

More about the full package: :star: Aimeos shop

Shop package only

The Aimeos Laravel online shop package is a composer based library. It can be installed easiest by using Composer 2.1+ in the root directory of your exisisting Laravel application:

wget https://getcomposer.org/download/latest-stable/composer.phar -O composer
php composer require aimeos/aimeos-laravel:~2021.10

Database

Make sure that you've created the database in advance and added the configuration to the .env file in your application directory. Sometimes, using the .env file makes problems and you will get exceptions that the connection to the database failed. In that case, add the database credentials to the resource/db section of your ./config/shop.php file too!

If you don't have at least MySQL 5.7.8 or MariaDB 10.2.2 installed, you will probably get an error like

Specified key was too long; max key length is 767 bytes

To circumvent this problem, drop the new tables if there have been any created and change the charset/collation setting in ./config/database.php to these values before installing Aimeos again:

'connections' => [
    'mysql' => [
        // ...
        'charset' => 'utf8',
        'collation' => 'utf8_unicode_ci',
        // ...
    ]
]

If you want to use a database server other than MySQL, please have a look into the article about supported database servers and their specific configuration. Supported are:

  • MySQL, MariaDB (fully)
  • PostgreSQL (fully)
  • SQL Server (fully)

Installation

Then, add these lines to the composer.json of the Laravel skeleton application:

    "prefer-stable": true,
    "minimum-stability": "dev",
    "require": {
        "aimeos/aimeos-laravel": "~2021.10",
        ...
    },
    "scripts": {
        "post-update-cmd": [
            "@php artisan migrate",
            "@php artisan vendor:publish --tag=public --force",
            "\\Aimeos\\Shop\\Composer::join"
        ],
        ...
    }

Afterwards, install the Aimeos shop package using

composer update

In the last step you must now execute these artisan commands to get a working or updated Aimeos installation:

php artisan vendor:publish --all
php artisan migrate
php artisan aimeos:setup --option=setup/default/demo:1

In a production environment or if you don't want that the demo data gets installed, leave out the --option=setup/default/demo:1 option.

Setup

To reference images correctly, you have to adapt your .env file and set the APP_URL to your real URL, e.g.

APP_URL=http://127.0.0.1:8000

Caution: Make sure, Laravel uses the file session driver in your .env file! Otherwise, the shopping basket content won't get stored correctly!

SESSION_DRIVER=file

Then, you should be able to call the catalog list page in your browser. For a quick start, you can use the integrated web server that is available since PHP 5.4. Simply execute this command in the base directory of your application:

php artisan serve

Point your browser to the list page of the shop using:

http://127.0.0.1:8000/index.php/shop

Note: Integrating the Aimeos package adds some routes like /shop or /admin to your Laravel installation but the home page stays untouched! If you want to add Aimeos to the home page as well, replace the route for "/" in ./routes/web.php by this line:

Route::group(['middleware' => ['web']], function () {
    Route::get('/', '\Aimeos\Shop\Controller\CatalogController@homeAction')->name('aimeos_home');
});

For multi-vendor setups, read the article about multiple shops.

This will display the Aimeos catalog home component on the home page you you get a nice looking shop home page. The /shop page will look like:

Aimeos frontend

Admin

To use the admin interface, you have to set up Laravel authentication first:

Laravel 8

composer require laravel/jetstream
php artisan jetstream:install livewire
npm install && npm run dev

For more information, please follow the Laravel documentation:

Laravel 7

composer require laravel/ui:^2.0
php artisan ui vue --auth
npm install && npm run dev

For more information, please follow the Laravel documentation:

Laravel 6

composer require laravel/ui:^1.0
php artisan ui vue --auth
npm install && npm run dev

For more information, please follow the Laravel documentation:

Create account

Test if your authentication setup works before you continue. Create an admin account for your Laravel application so you will be able to log into the Aimeos admin interface:

php artisan aimeos:account --super <email>

The e-mail address is the user name for login and the account will work for the frontend too. To protect the new account, the command will ask you for a password. The same command can create limited accounts by using "--admin", "--editor" or "--api" instead of "--super" (access to everything).

Configure authentication

As a last step, you need to extend the boot() method of your App\Providers\AuthServiceProvider class and add the lines to define how authorization for "admin" is checked in app/Providers/AuthServiceProvider.php:

    public function boot()
    {
        // Keep the lines before

        Gate::define('admin', function($user, $class, $roles) {
            if( isset( $user->superuser ) && $user->superuser ) {
                return true;
            }
            return app( '\Aimeos\Shop\Base\Support' )->checkUserGroup( $user, $roles );
        });
    }

Test

If your ./public directory isn't writable by your web server, you have to create these directories:

mkdir public/aimeos public/vendor
chmod 777 public/aimeos public/vendor

In a production environment, you should be more specific about the granted permissions! If you've still started the internal PHP web server (php artisan serve) you should now open this URL in your browser:

http://127.0.0.1:8000/index.php/admin

Enter the e-mail address and the password of the newly created user and press "Login". If you don't get redirected to the admin interface (that depends on the authentication code you've created according to the Laravel documentation), point your browser to the /admin URL again.

Caution: Make sure that you aren't already logged in as a non-admin user! In this case, login won't work because Laravel requires to log out first.

Aimeos backend

Hints

To simplify development, you should configure to use no content cache. You can do this in the config/shop.php file of your Laravel application by adding these lines at the bottom:

    'madmin' => array(
        'cache' => array(
            'manager' => array(
                'name' => 'None',
            ),
        ),
    ),

B2B Marketplace Platform - Inventory And Catalog Management

B2B marketplace business is growing every year, every merchant much takes this opportunity to scale their business by selling via a B2B marketplace platform.
You know what, still the B2B segment remains an untapped potential as it offers extensive access to a wider audience base and global reach.

B2B merchants can use up this marketplace platform for selling their product online directly to another business. In most case, B2B business models look and works similar to B2C, but there is some way that B2B stands out, where the regular B2C can’t compete with.

How B2B marketplace differs from the B2C marketplace?

Before getting into the wider picture in detail, let’s consider both the B2C and B2B marketplaces here. Online marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, and Alibaba mostly have both B2B and B2C marketplace characteristics of their website.

The B2B marketplace platform connects one business to another business to carry trades in exchange for their goods and services. Whereas the B2C marketplace connects buyers and sellers around all under a single roof called a marketplace platform.

B2B marketplace platform - Vendor catalog management

B2B marketplace vendor catalog is an extensive feature that sorts out a huge problem called “Inventory Source”. Because here the scenario is different, finding the right vendors for the multi-vendor marketplace is hard. There are many factors for the B2B marketplace that moves to b2b multi-vendor catalog management:

  • Retailers will have various filters such as attribute, category, and price filters
  • B2B shopping list can be added based on retailers
  • Provides all SKU for all products to vendors
  • Need to provide catalog based on - categories and groups
  • Either flexible or fixed price list based on vendors

As per the above screenshot, vendors can have varied options to choose the products. This would be the best way to provide present the vendors with a complete wholesale catalog.

B2B Marketplace Inventory Management

B2B multi-vendor marketplace always finds difficulty in managing inventory, so in order to bypass or to source the perfect inventory, it is better to go with drop-ship stores like Alibaba.

Every B2B marketplace should opt for inventory management similar to how Alibaba marketplace does. Their B2B business approach is considered as good as it allows vendors to make search catalog completely, the whole marketplace in literal.

Also, there is another prime aspect called “select and sell” referred to be best among expertise.
Retailers choose to select and sell

Retailers always choose to pick the best system that has better handling in “select and sell”. A B2B multi-vendor marketplace vendor catalog provides easy and seamless options such as “Search select and sell". Here, the vendors have the upper hand to search the entire product database.

Also, they will be able to add, manage whatever they want to sell, and add that information to their profile.
