Terms you should know.

Collection

A collection is a group of digital collectibles on the blockchain. When you create a collection, Cargo deploys an ERC-721 smart contract to the blockchain representing that collection. For example a collection can contain a group of digital trading cards.

Collectible

A collectible is a single item within a collection. If you have a collection of digital trading cards, then a collectible would be one individual card.

Showcase

A showcase is the place to show off and sell your collectibles. Showcases can include multiple collections. They can be public or private.

Collectibles within showcases can be viewed, transferred or sold. You can invite vendors to your showcase and allow them to add collections to your showcase. For example you can build a showcase that includes the work of different artists.

Vendors and Beneficiaries functionality is not yet available in your dashboard, but will be soon!

Vendors

You can add vendors to your showcases. Vendors can create collections and sell collectibles within their given showcases.

Beneficiaries

Beneficiaries are those who will automatically receive a payout when a vendor’s collectible is sold. Vendors can add up to ten beneficiaries to an account.
