What is Multi-Vendor?

Multi-Vendor is an on-premise e-commerce marketplace platform. It helps a vendor market their products online, even globally. On a multivendor website, every seller has their own backend panel and a storefront—their very own micro-store with all the necessary eCommerce features. Our multivendor marketplace php script allows you to offer sellers payment plans and take commissions for their sales automatically. You also have the multivendor marketplace open source code at your disposal to customize the platform the way you want: just hire developers and adapt the platform precisely to your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s an eCommerce website that unites multiple independent merchants on a single platform. These marketplaces use specialized eCommerce software that supports unlimited vendors, a seller payout system, and other special tools for seller management.

You, as the administrator, set up the eCommerce marketplace and get it ready for sales. Then you attract merchants to your platform by offering them favorable terms for doing business with you. Merchants come and bring customers. Customers buy products from your platform—sellers get payments—you get commissions.

You need three essential things:

  • A reliable VPS or cloud hosting (not necessary for a saas marketplace platform).
  • A powerful eCommerce multivendor platform.
  • A robust business plan.

Actually, you can’t compare an e-commerce website vs. a multivendor website because the latter is an eCommerce website, too. There’s a difference between a single-seller shop and a multivendor shop: the former is a traditional online store with only one seller, and the latter is an eCommerce store with multiple independent sellers.

The best eCommerce marketplace software is the one that helps you reach your business goals with maximum efficiency. There’s no perfect multivendor script for everyone no matter whether it is paid or free multi vendor marketplace software. Make sure the software has good user reviews, developed by a trusted company, and that the package has all essential features.

  1. Decide on the niche and the business model: B2C, B2B, or C2C.
  2. Research the niche, examine your competitors, and invent a business plan.
  3. Choose the best multivendor eCommerce platform.
  4. Start MVP.
  5. Scale your business.

There are too many factors that can influence the final price for starting a multivendor eCommerce website. It all depends on your goals. If you’re into a SaaS marketplace platform, then there’s no final price—you will have to pay monthly forever while your business lives. If you choose a self-hosted solution, then prepare a budget for reliable hosting ($20-$60 monthly) and a multivendor eCommerce platform (from $1,450 one-time fee).
