What our customers say

"CS-Cart Multi-Vendor platform is an easy to use software if you wish to start a marketplace of any kind. Buying Multi-Vendor is a million times better than building one from the ground up. After a thorough research for more than 3 months we were confident that CS-Cart Multi-Vendor had the most features for the price compared to any of its competitors. The Customer service team was extremely helpful and you also get 90 days of premium support after your purchase of the Multi-Vendor Plus which is what we got."
Pritish A.
E-Commerce Specialist
"We picked CS-Cart out of 8 different other software (including Magento) and I have to say it's the best decision we ever made. CS-Cart was so easy to install and configure, and great value for money without compromising on any of the key functionality, quality and reliability we needed. There are plenty of themes and add-ons to choose from as well as great built-in features out of the box - including SEO features which is critical for a high trafficked site like ours. The product is easy to customise and gave us endless possibilities with integrating with other parts of our site, such as community and CRM."
Phil K.
Founder and CEO
"I'm opening a very data-intense shopping site that provides a lot of product info. I love that I can move a lot of data around pretty fast and with ease of use. The platform takes minimal time to learn how to use. I really like that I can use this platform without much coding knowledge--I only use coding for tweeks to my individual pages."

"I really like scalability of CS-Cart. It was not overwhelming for me to use when I started few years ago, and now as we grow, we are still able to utilise its advanced features. Some solutions out there become restrictive after a few years, however, this is not the case for CS-Cart. It just helps business to grow and matures with it. Another important aspect of it is that it just works. It is very agile, robust, secure and intuitive for new members. CS-Cart team keeps on top of all the latest developments and therefore this solutions is very powerful, even just out of the box."

FAQ
Need help? Here are the top questions asked by our Subscribers
What is an eCommerce solution?
eCommerce solution is a platform for starting an online shop or a multi-vendor website. An eCommerce solution can be on-premise or cloud. On-premise platforms usually have a lifetime license with one-time payment. Cloud platforms are subscription-based.
How does eCommerce software work?
eCommerce software has backend and storefront. Multi-Vendor platforms also have a vendor panel. An admin manages the eCommerce website in the admin panel: uploads products, sets up promotions, payment options, and logistics. Customers shop on the storefront by browsing the catalog and adding products to the cart. Once the order is placed, online shop managers see it in the admin panel and start to process it.
What are some examples of e-commerce?
The most known eCommerce website is Amazon. It's an eCommerce marketplace with a long history. It's the biggest marketplace in the world.
How do I start an eCommerce business?
You basically have two options: develop an eCommerce website from scratch or build a shop on a ready-made platform. There are pros and cons of both options. For example, the development of an eCommerce shop from scratch can cost you a lot of money. But in this case, you can tailor it perfectly to your business processes. Building the business on a ready platform is way more affordable and quicker but you can face some limitations, which you will have to overcome with custom development.
Do I need an eCommerce platform to sell online?
You only need an eCommerce platform to sell a large number of products. If your catalog has more than 50 products, it is better to open an eCommerce shop. If you sell only one or ten products, you can use simple landing pages.
How do I sell through multiple eCommerce platforms?
There are two ways to sell through multiple channels. The first way is to start your own eCommerce shop and export your products to marketplaces like Amazon. This way, you will have the main sales channel (your shop) and auxiliary channels (Amazon, eBay, etc.). The second way is to start an online shop with multiple storefronts. You open many storefronts in different countries and for different products and audiences.
