Make It All Simple for Vendors
Easy vendor signup
Along with registration by the store administrator, vendors can easily sign up themselves directly from the storefront. The welcome message on the main dashboard page guides the vendor through the very first steps and provides other relevant info.
Separate Vendor Storefront
Each of your sellers will have a separate page in your store with his logo, banner, company description, rating, products and product categories. Meanwhile, the whole store and all email notifications sent to your customers are branded with your logo.
Each vendor has a separate dashboard, where they manage their listings, profile page info, logo and images, set shipping zones, methods and rates, get reports, chat with customers. Robust notification system helps vendors manage their products and orders efficiently.
Vendors manage their inventory themselves — add products one by one or in bulk, set coupons and volume discounts, approve, reject and edit product ratings and reviews. They have access to all product settings and if allowed, can update global product options and tabs.

Navigation & Product Search
Due to intuitive navigation and robust filtering, your customers will love how easy it is to find exactly the products they look for. It’s possible to search among all products or, if they prefer only one vendor, they can browse only his products.
Chat with Vendors
For any questions or disputes, buyers can easily reach sellers from the product, vendor, and order details pages. A store administrator can jump into the conversation to settle all possible issues right away.
X‑Cart is fully responsive to ensure a perfect view and maximum comfortable shopping in your mall on any device. Needless to say, it meets all Google requirements to mobile-friendliness. To delight your mobile shoppers even more, consider your own mobile app.
Smooth Checkout & Payments
On checkout, customers pay for their order only once even if a cart contains products of different vendors. A choice of several payment methods on checkout (set any of 120+ supported) will help to decrease cart abandonment.
Ratings & Reviews
Extended reviews and rating system will help buyers find the best products and the most reliable vendors. Customers can rate and review not only products quality but also the accuracy of description and the service provided by the seller.
Currencies, Languages, Shipping
International buyers will feel homy in your store due to Multi-currency and translations addons. X‑Cart integrates with real‑time shipping calculators USPS, FedEx, UPS, CanadaPost, Australia Post, DHL, Pitney Bowes, Pilibaba, ShippingCalc to minimize your and your vendors’ shipping efforts.
Enjoy Hassle‑free Management of Your Online Marketplace
While vendors have full access to manage their products, the store administrator only needs to keep an eye on the whole process and control the store setup.
Single Warehouse or Separate Shops?
Single warehouse implies that all goods are shipped from a single shipping address. An admin sets shipping methods and manages orders, while vendors can only view the orders info related to their products.
In Vendors as separate shops mode, the vendors set their own ship from addresses and define shipping methods, zones and rates. Besides, they can fully manage their orders.
In both cases, a customer pays only once on checkout but, in the latter mode, will need to select a shipping method for each vendor if they offer different options.
Full Admin Control
Absolutely everything in the store is within the admin’s power. For example, updating any vendor’s page or product and even assigning a different vendor to the product. Admin can adjust vendors access to customer contact info, catalog, orders and shipping management and define if the vendor’s products can be available for sale right away or only after the admin’s approval (trusted/non‑trusted vendors). Advanced X‑Cart reporting system will show you how your suppliers do.
Auto‑split of vendor revenue
Commissions and vendors transactions management is extremely simple and presumes minimum manual work. X‑Cart calculates vendor commissions as % Off on order and/or shipping total. Due to integration with PayPal adaptive payments, vendor revenue will be split and sent to vendors’ accounts automatically. In case you prefer managing vendor payouts manually, you can set a minimum balance value when vendors can request the payout, and transfer the funds when it’s reached.
X‑Cart was recommended to me by an acquaintance who is another one of their customers. I gave them a crazy idea for an E‑Goods store, and they helped me custom design a site using their snazzy X‑Cart 5 Multivendor system. I am clueless about coding and such, and they have been tremendous resources. They have patiently answered my questions, fixed what need to be fixed, and have shown me how to use their system so I can be more autonomous using their tools.Rachel Green, MonologueBank
