🤔 How to choose a Webflow template for your marketplace app
You can use any Webflow template you find online as the starting point for your marketplace. However, any Webflow template you find in our Webflow template marketplace will come pre-configured with Tangram which will save you 1-2 hours of setup. If you would like to design your own template, learn how to connect it to Tangram in this tutorial.
When selecting a template, the only significant thing that matters is that you like the general brand feel/design of it. Components of the template can be removed, and components from other templates can be mixed & matched allow for full customization of the design of your marketplace.
Note: All Tangram customers receive a complimentary 1:1 planning session here.
Places to find Webflow templates:
- Pre-configured Tangram x Webflow Marketplaces
- Official Webflow Template by Webflow Experts
- Webflow Showcase by Webflow Community Members (Note: ONLY USE IF SAYS FREE FOR PUBLIC COMMERCIAL USE)
Additionally, each template comes with a Tangram management portal for each type of user. In the Tangram admin portal, marketplace administrators can manage users, listings, and payments. In the vendor & customer portals, users can manage their listings, transactions, and messages.
Tangram user portals are essentially a user’s account on your marketplace. Any changes made in their Tangram portal will automatically be reflected in your Webflow multi vendor marketplace front-end.
