Features That Make CS-Cart Multi-Vendor the Killer Marketplace Platform
Advanced Vendor Payout System
A marketplace is always a grand project with lots of processes to control. To make its management less complicated, select a payout method that works best for you. The Multi-Vendor ecommerce platform allows you to go either with automatic or manual vendor payouts.
Automatic payouts are handled via a built-in PayPal for Marketplaces or Stripe Connect functionality. The feature distributes the payment between vendors and sends commissions to your account automatically. In case manual payouts are your choice, you can use the vendor accounting feature to record each payout and collect monthly payments.
How to earn with the Multi-Vendor marketplace platform? Create subscription plans for vendors to get commissions from sales and fees for the membership! Our Vendor plans feature allows you to do it easily.
With vendor plans, commissions are pre-set for each plan and a new vendor just picks the most suitable option. Apart from commissions, it allows you to take a monthly fee from vendors for selling in your marketplace. Besides, you can set such restrictions as the maximum number of products, revenue up to and a vendor micro-store. Use all the tools at once or select some of them for the start!
Surely you would like to check your vendors' products before they appear in the marketplace and Multi-Vendor allows you to do that.
Our Vendor Data Pre-moderation feature can be adjusted to the specifics of your project: let vendors showcase products without moderation, check every product added by vendors or allow certain vendors to add products without moderation.
Import/Export for Vendors
It is only natural that the marketplace owner can bulk upload product details, orders, and users to the store. With Multi-Vendor this feature is available not only to the marketplace administrator but to vendors as well.
Make your vendors’ routine simpler letting them mass upload products and update the inventory with just a couple of clicks!
Vendor Micro-Store with Its Own Design
With the Multi-Vendor system your vendors can not only sell items on a shared storefront but have a standalone micro-store within your virtual marketplace. It is a vendor area with their logo, store description, products, filters, and categories.
Allow your vendors to express themselves changing the theme style and layout of a vendor store selecting their own color scheme.
Are you planning to sell in several cities or countries? Are you interested in a hotel, restaurants or rental business? If it is so, a Vendor Geolocation feature is just what you need.
Display your vendors on the map and allow your customers to see the nearby vendors with the distance from the customer’s exact location. Create product filters based on your vendors’ location and improve your customers’ experience making them return to your marketplace again and again.
Reports and Statistics
You cannot run a successful virtual shopping mall without a thorough analysis based on statistics and reports. We have seen to that and integrated the Multi-Vendor ecommerce platform with Google Analytics that provides the insights of your website traffic and marketing effectiveness.
That’s not it. There is another built-in tool you cannot deal without. A Sales reports feature provides you with the detailed statistics on the sales in your marketplace. You can form the statistics in a graphical or tabular chart, which can be grouped into separate reports.
Multiple Levels of Administrative Access
Running a large-scale marketplace is much easier when delegating certain duties to your staff members. The Multi-Vendor platform allows registering employees and set different levels of access to the admin panel.
For instance, your web designer can work on the look-and-feel of the marketplace while sales guys add products and process orders.
Let your employees take up the duties while you are engaged in fundamental things.
