What is VCatalog

VCatalog – Valigara online jewelry catalog – is a mini-site, automatically created by Valigara system for instantly showcasing your jewelry online. VCatalog is a basic eCommerce website for your jewelry. It creates your own  Point Of Presence (POP) and allows you to start selling your jewelry online with no additional efforts and expenses.  

VCatalog is developed for work both with resellers and private buyers. VCatalog allows you to:

  • create variety of online and printable catalogs of your jewelry
  • set different prices levels and currencies for different clients types
  • define customized catalogs according to special reseller needs
  • provide discounts to your registered clients
  • target additional audiences with more relevant catalogs
  • other settings that can help you to market your products in the most optimal way.

The default online catalog (for Anonymous client) displays all of your jewelry in automatic mode, having the ability to make purchases online disabled. You can find a link to this catalog on the My Account page or at Channels=>Catalogs page.

VCatalog operates at the Valigara domain, or can be connected to your dedicated business domain by enabling the Co-Branding feature.

Setting up the main catalog

1. Add a top banner for the catalog, define policies, SEO and other settings on the Channels=>Catalog Settings page.

2. Set up price type, currency and payment terms for your default catalog by editing the Anonymous client settings (clicking the EDIT tool on the right).

Automatic / Manual products selection

Anonymous client page settings allow you to switch the catalog display mode from automatic to manual.

– If the checkbox “Show all products” is checked in Anonymous client, all products in Valigara system (except of “NOT FOR SALE” products) are shown automatically in the online catalog, with the most recent products shown first.

– If the checkbox “Show all products” is not checked, you can select manually the jewelry to appear in VCatalog (clicking the VIEW CATALOG tool on the right of Anonymous client) and also set the order for each one of the selected products in the catalog. Therefore, in the manual mode, each time you create new products in Valigara system, you need to add them to VCatalog manually.

3. Your clients can make purchases directly from VCatalog. This requires the integration of PayPal payment system into Valigara. To do this, PayPal API signature has to be created in Dashboard=>My account -> PayPal tab. The orders from VCatalog will appear in the Orders page together with all other integrated sales channels.

When your default catalog is ready, you can send it’s link to your potential clients as well as start promoting it as any website.

Creating online/printable jewelry catalogs

In addition to the main catalog, VCatalog allows creating customized online catalogs of your jewelry and gemstones, according to your resellers’ and marketing needs. These catalogs can be used by targeting new potential distributors and sales channels, providing information regarding new products in your catalog to existing customers etc.

Valigara automatically creates an unique link (URL) to each online catalog you create. Each catalog can be available publicly or only to the specific person, f.i. your preferred client.

It is also easy to create the printable  PDF version of your catalog right in the system.

Use the Channels=>Catalogs system page to create catalogs of your jewelry.
