12 Important Features for a Multi Vendor site

July 11, 2017 - 18:26

E-commerce store that sells products with many sellers/distributors is generally a multi-vendor e-commerce application. Now multi-vendor sites are quite popular. For instance, sites such as Walmart, eBay and Amazon have been able to reach a wider audience with millions of sellers from just one site.

Multi-vendor sites are difficult to build from scratch and also require a great deal more effort to maintain.

Drupal Commerce

Drupal Commerce is a very powerful and flexible module in Drupal able to convert a Drupal site to an E-commerce application. By extending the Commerce module with our Commerce Marketplace module, you can convert your e-commerce store to a multi-vendor marketplace.

Use Cases for Marketplace

There are two different use cases for marketplaces

  • One product catalog with different stores: Products will be sold by different stores
