Single vendor Storefront

Several independent product providers share a single "virtual mall" for selling their goods and services — with a single storefront, a single cart and a single checkout.

Separate vendor Back-End

Each provider manages their own products and orders independently of other providers via a personal password-protected account.

Admin control

Root Administrator account controls every aspect of the store and can moderate the accounts of individual providers and the goods they are selling.

Advanced customer experience

Advanced product search and filter, “shop by vendor” feature, vendor info, photo and order messages make it easy to engage people browsing the website. And a single payment checkout makes the shopping experience as simple as microwaving a bag of popcorn.

Warehouse vs Vendors as separate shops

Two different modes are meant to draw the line between those who store their goods in a single warehouse and those who ship products from separate multi-location warehouses. However, the process is absolutely hassle-free for your customers — no matter how many vendors there are, the order is paid just once.

Get Multi-Vendor module for your store

PayPal adaptive for automatic payments

Accept payments for an unlimited number of products from different suppliers within a single interface and automatically split the total amount into several parts. Admin gets the commission, the vendors — their payments.

Trusted / non-trusted vendors

Why should your customers constantly guess what companies are good or bad, reliable or untrustworthy? Tag trusted and non-trusted vendors to help your customers shop smarter.

Upgrades, security, apps

One-click module installation

Install modules and design templates in a couple of clicks without leaving the admin area of the store, just like in Google Play or App Store, and instantly enjoy your new features!
