A flexible filter management system allows you to create an unlimited number of product filters for your catalog.

Tastes differ. When you sell food products, you need an extremely flexible filtering system so that your customers could find the food they prefer. For example, vegetarians don't eat meat so you may want to create special filters for vegetarian customers. Some people are allergic to peanuts—they need filters to filter out products that contain this ingredient.

The faster your customers find the preferred food, the better chance they make an order and return to your marketplace to purchase again.
Allow your vendors to have micro-stores with only their products, filters, and search.

In a personal micro-store, a vendor can sell food of a certain type. For example, in your marketplace, you can have micro-stores that only sell honey, sweets, bakery food, etc.

Vendors can set up the look and feel of their micro-stores and filters so that they correlate with the food they sell. Selling beef? Why not make the store's design in black and white with a cow on the logo?
8 shipping carries
and customer pick up
Offer your customers the most convenient delivery options—dozens of shipping services from 8 world's most popular carriers are already built-in.

Food is not easy to deliver. If not delivered carefully, it can be destroyed (if it is soft like cakes) or spoiled (if it is perishable like milk). You should carefully pick carriers for your food marketplace.

Fortunately, CS-Cart Multi-Vendor offers 8 most popular carriers with dozens of shipping options out of the box. You will find the one that will be delivering your food products on time and in perfect condition. Or you can just create your own delivery service.
Product bundles
Increase the average bill and make attractive offers for your customers by creating product bundles.

Why not sell more to a customer by offering products for making a special meal? For example, sellers can give a discount on a bundle containing pasta, minced beef, tomatoes, and basil and call it a "Pasta Bolognese" bundle.

Also, product bundles can help you sell shelf stock before food loses its freshness.
