About The Course:
This is a free pre-recorded course (~1 hr content total) meant to be explored over a week on your own time. It is best to join a cohort that has a start date that aligns within 1 week of when you intend to launch your marketplace.
By the end of this 7-day course you can expect to have a fully functional multi-vendor marketplace for services, classes, events, rentals, products, or jobs. It will be built using two no-code tools, Webflow and Tangram.
Common features implemented:
- In-app chat
- Automatic payments via Stripe Connect
- User portals for sellers, buyers, & admins (or any user type)
- Scheduling capabilities (virtual or in-person)
- Search & filtering capabilities for users or listings
- Email & SMS notifications
Why A Cohort-Based Course?
- Ability for "emergent learning" from other no-coders in the cohort
- Larger support network of no-coders facing the same issues at the same time
- Accountability of peers and course structure to launch within a week
- Networking opportunities to help kickstart and scale your marketplace

Webflow is a powerful no-code website builder. It comes with thousands of beautiful and professional templates to choose from. Check some out here in their template marketplace.
Webflow is top-tier when it comes to designing professional web pages without code, however it falls short when trying to build powerful applications like multivendor marketplaces.
Tangram makes it fast and simple to design a marketplace in Webflow without sacrificing core functionality like in-app chat, automatic payments, and user accounts/portals.
To get started, enroll in one of our upcoming cohorts to receive your Tangram account credentials. If you would like to explore tutorials on how the Webflow setup process works check out this blog post.
No, at the moment you have the choice to enroll in a cohort if you think the cohort-style benefits listed above would benefit you. We highly recommend this as more supportive resources will be provided to help you launch as quickly as possible.
However, if you are ready to start building according to our tutorials right away and don't want any support you can begin your free trial here whenever you are ready to start building independently.
Absolutely! Any Webflow template you find on the internet or designed yourself will work with Tangram. If you want to launch ASAP we recommend using one of our pre-configured Webflow marketplace templates as we have already connected them with Tangram (saving you ~1-2 hrs). You can even mix & match templates 😎
You do not need to purchase a template before enrolling.
Yes! This course is completely free to access and participate in.
By the end of this 7-day course you should have a fully functional Webflow marketplace. If not, then you can simply unsubscribe from our free trial.

You will have access to our online Slack community of 200+ marketplace founders. You can tap into this network and will have a dedicated Tangram Expert assigned to you for real-time help anytime after the course ends.
