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.

We provide Amazon Cloud Hosting with 24/7 monitoring. We will install CS-Cart Multi-Vendor for you, make all configurations of the server, and maintain the server with no extra cost. The pricing starts from $69 per month.

But you’re free to use the services of any hosting provider to your choice. Just make sure your hosting plans are compatible with CS-Cart System Requirements.

The custom development services are provided by our partners. Take a look at the list of developers in our Marketplace. Please contact them to get a quote for a modification.

If you have an in-house development team, you can develop custom functionality yourselves—the CS-Cart Multi-Vendor code is open.

The cost consists of a one-time payment for a license + a monthly fee for hosting. We have only one obligatory fee, it is for the license, and it is a one-time fee, not regular. Regarding the hosting: it’s up to you to choose the provider.

It is optional to purchase the upgrade subscription. On purchasing a license you will get 1-year of free updates. We normally release from 4 to 6 updates during a year. Every update brings new features, enhances usability and security, and updates built-in integrations with 3rd-party services.

When the upgrade subscription expires and you want to upgrade your marketplace to the latest version, you will have to buy a 1-year upgrade subscription. By the way, with CS-Cart Multi-Vendor Ultimate, you will get free lifetime updates.

Of course, you will be able to continue using the existing version of the software without purchasing the upgrade subscription. It is up to you whether to update your marketplace or not.

When an upgrade subscription is about to expire, you’ll get a notification so as not to miss the discounted price for the subscription. The thing is that the upgrade subscription will cost you less if you prolong it before it expires.

For more detailed information on the upgrade subscription conditions please refer to our upgrade policy.

We have zero hidden payments.

Normally, our technical support service is paid. Two options here:

  • You can purchase support credits and use them as the currency to pay for every support ticket.
  • You can subscribe to our customer care service and get advanced support features with no extra cost and no need for credits.

However, when you purchase a CS-Cart Multi-Vendor license, you get a limited period of free technical support as a bonus. For the standard edition of CS-Cart Multi-Vendor, it is 45 days. For CS-Cart Multi-Vendor Plus, it is 90 days. With the CS-Cart Multi-Vendor Ultimate edition, you will get 365 days of VIP customer care.

VIP customer care means advanced support with extra services (such as online chat) and without the need for support credits. It is currently available only with CS-Cart Multi-Vendor Ultimate.

After the free period is over, and you still need to use our technical support, you can purchase the monthly subscription or credits. We recommend the subscription.

The pricing for the subscription is as follows:

  • $169 USD for 1 month of customer care
  • $300 USD for 1 month of VIP customer care (VIP customer care means advanced support with extra services, such as online chat and without the need for credits)

Please refer to our Support Policy to see all the information.

We offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, so there are no risks for you. If within 30 days from the moment of purchase you realize that CS-Cart Multi-Vendor is not what you are looking for, you can get a full refund.

We designed CS-Cart Multi-Vendor to be a standalone platform in the first place. It guarantees stability, hassle-free configuration, and the uniformity of the system.

But it is still possible to integrate the CS-Cart Multi-Vendor’s backend with your existing frontend thanks to open code and powerful API. In this case, you’ll need to hire developers to make this kind of integration.

You can't enter the license number into the demo, but it is possible to transfer data from your online demo to a live marketplace.

A personal demo works for 15 days for demonstration purposes only. If necessary, you can export products, categories, features, and other data from the demo to your live marketplace.

Sure, you can do it on special terms. Usually, it is quite simple to move to a more advanced edition of CS-Cart Multi-Vendor but there could be important nuances in some cases. Please contact us for details.

There are several ways to draw income on your marketplace with CS-Cart Multi-Vendor.

Here are some of the most obvious:

  • Get commissions for every transaction on your marketplace: a vendor sells a product → you get a commission for this sale.
  • Set a fixed monthly fee for selling products on your marketplace: you can do it via built-in vendor plans.
  • You can advertise your vendors and increase their sales, which leads to more income.
  • Set a fee for additional functionality. For example, setting up an exclusive vendor store design or an additional dedicated storefront for a vendor (in Ultimate only).

You can choose any of these options or set all of them at once.
