An Alibaba clone is an e-commerce platform that is modeled after Chinese online retail giant Alibaba. It essentially allows businesses to create their own online storefronts to sell products.
It provides sellers with all the necessary tools to build an online store – from catalog management and product listings to payment gateway integration and order management. Sellers can add products, manage inventory, and set prices and payment terms.
Buyers can browse product catalogs, add items to their cart, and checkout and pay for their purchases. The platform acts as a marketplace bringing buyers and sellers together. It handles all transactions and ensures secure payment processing and delivery of orders.
