    Steps to create online tutor Marketplace like above Marketplaces.

    Some basic requirements are:

    • Marketplace: A marketplace is a single place where buyers/sellers are available. It is a single platform where buyers will get different types of products/services.
    • Domain: In this the Owner/Admin will select the marketplace Domain, it can be .com .in .net .The domain is just like the address of store.
    • Server: To build a perfect online learning website server should be cloud based not local host.
    • Professional Tutor: Professional tutor gives you the quality in the teaching course and help the learner to get the things in a easy or interactive way during courses.
    • Internet: You should have a good bandwidth to run the online marketplace smooth.

    STEP1: Selecting the platform for your marketplace.

    As earlier in this article, we suggested Magento 2. Learning Management System Marketplace for Magento 2 will convert your default marketplace into an E-learning website.

    This module will add a new product type namely Course Product to your Marketplace. so that professional tutors can add a course in any form like Docs, Pdf, Audio, Video, and publish it.


    • It is mandatory to install the FFmpeg or the Fast Forward MPEG, which is responsible for instant video format conversions, in the Magento 2 Root Directory.

    • This is a marketplace add-on, so you need to install Webkul’s Marketplace Multi Vendor Module for Magento 2 first.

    Step 2: Tutor /Learner registration.

    This step will show you how professional tutors and learners do registration.

    In the Learning Management System module, a professional tutor can easily signup the same as a student/learner. the difference is only the signup, there is an option to select Do You Want To Become A Seller / Vendor?

    If you select yes then another option will be visible Shop URL have to type SHOP URL.


    But if you select NO then you will signup as a learner/buyer on the Magento 2.


    Reasons to start online teaching:

    • No boundation : you can publish your content/course as you want, you can use your own way of teaching, noone can pressurize while teaching or interrupt in your teaching style.
    • Sharing new skills: the most inspiring thing is the the ‘way‘ like way of teaching and way of interaction with the learner so that learner will get new skills from the professional tutor.
    • Reward and Recognization :once your course/content in the demandor gives the excelent output you will be rewarded from the educational bodies or many more institute.

    Step 3: Upload a course.

    After the registration as a tutor/seller, need to upload a course by following the guidelines set by the admin of the marketplace. course duration can be set by the seller/admin.

    To add a course tutor need to go seller panel and then select NEW PRODUCT than a new side window open. Before adding any product seller must set an attribute set and product type as a course then click continue for further actions

    Add new product page

    Step 4: Payment Method.

    As a study says that more option of payment and shipping gives the high conversion. in the marketplace, there are several payment methods that sellers can use for getting the payment from the buyer.

    At Webkul, We provide popular payment methods such as PayPal, Stripe, Mangopay, Braintree, etc.

    In Magento 2 marketplace there are add ons are available on the Webkul store for payment getting. different gateways are available admin can select as per the seller’s choice or requirement.
