Comercio La Orotava is a marketplace for local commerce in La Orotava and a pioneering project for the digitalization of each and every one of the businesses in the municipality, whatever their sector. We collaborate in this project with the marketplace development of this innovative initiative in Tenerife.
We developed a video presentation, which is located at the beginning of the website and explains the operation and advantages of this innovative project.
The components of the marketplace of Comercio La Orotava
The platform had to bring together several functionalities, to make it useful and easy to use for both businesses and consumers.
The website itself must be responsive, adapted to all devices. This is the only way we can help users to really interact with the marketplace. In addition, the CMS should be easily updated to introduce news, events and last minute changes.
It has many dynamic elements, to facilitate the interaction with the information.
We chose PrestaShop as a platform for this ecommerce project, as it combines ease of use with the scalability and management of several stores in one.

The marketplace aims to welcome all sectors and to allow all businesses in the municipality to benefit from the digitalisation opportunities it offers.
In turn, we had to define a non-excessive number of categories, so as not to saturate consumers. The result is 10 categories ranging from bakeries to bookstores.
Introducing the shops of La Orotava and its products
The marketplace on its launch day already has more than 100 participating businesses. Consumers can search directly in the shop to know, by category or by product.
Each category has a prominent image and is accompanied by images of the products of all the shops participating in that category.
