Marketplaces have been a hot topic lately, fueled by the pandemic pushing more buying online, or simply because it makes it easier to work with partners. As a result, we’ve added Native Marketplaces to our roadmap, targeting the Summer of 2022.
HCL Commerce is thrilled to be positioned in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce. The timing of the last Magic Quadrant in 2020 meant that we were unable to participate but received an honorable mention.
Are Marketplaces the fastest growing sales channel? Demand for marketplaces is high and according to Digital Commerce360, just 24 months ago, there were approximately 70 vertical B2B marketplaces. Today, that number is 250 marketplaces and counting.

In this case, as the Seller we want to approve these organization and organization administrator registration requests. These approvals are located under Approvals. You will benefit from lots of great search and filtering capabilities to find exactly what you need quickly. For example, using filters you are able to view only those requests that are pending. Approving/rejecting these requests are as simple as clicking on the proper option under Actions. Here you can also enter in any comments we may want to be stored with each request.

Now that the Seller has approved the Organization and Organization Administrator registration requests, the Buyer can login to the Sapphire storefront.
