Why build a Multi Vendor
Marketplace on CS-Cart

With CS-Cart marketplace software, you can build an online marketplace fast, tailor it to your needs and business model, and grow hassle-free. Building multi vendor marketplaces has never been more efficient.

Seller management

Build a multi vendor marketplace to offer a convenient sales platform to your sellers and manage them effectively: straightforward, customizable vendor panel, payout options, communication and marketing tools.

Convenient money distribution

Choose the payout method that suits you best: take all the money and pay out to the sellers, let the sellers get all the money and pay out your part, or split money from every order automatically in real time. Our marketplace software supports Stripe Connect and PayPal Commerce out of the box.

Marketing tools

Boost your sales and help your vendors sell more with promotions, cross-sell and upsell features, loyalty programs, and more. All of this is built into our marketplace software.

Marketplace mobile app

Thanks to marketplace app development, you can get more sales from mobile shoppers: the app allows buyers to conveniently shop on-the-go and sellers—to manage their catalog and orders, all in the same app without logging in to the marketplace website.

Global commerce

Scale your marketplace business globally: use over 26 translations, multiple currencies, a tax management system, 90+ payment and shipping options. Easily adapt your marketplace website for various regions.

Multiple storefronts

Scale to new regions, niches, markets and test a new business model: add as many storefronts as you want—each one with its own design, language, currency, vendors, and products. Manage all the storefronts in a single administration panel of your eCommerce marketplace. Building marketplaces for different niches on a single platform is as easy as it gets.

What our customers say about CS-Cart Multi-Vendor

Pritish A.
E-Commerce Specialist
"CS-Cart is a straightforward software if you wish to start a multi vendor marketplace of any kind. Buying CS-Cart 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 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."
"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 marketplace platform takes minimal time to learn how to use. I really like that I can use this marketplace platform without much coding knowledge-I only use coding for tweeks to my individual pages."
Michael M.
Financial Services Representative
"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."
Masha S.
Manager
"Writing that something is the best always arouses suspicion, especially among people who have excellent knowledge and experience in this field. We have more than 13 years of experience with the CS-Cart marketplace platform in the Serbian marketplace. The CS-Cart option is a powerful and user-friendly cart software solution in which all good experiences from individual CS-Cart software editions are implemented. There are detailed manuals and video instructions, not only for beginners, a large forum and active community, developers, marketplace, and a good help desk.
