CS-Cart Multi-Vendor is an e-commerce, self-hosted solution to build online marketplaces like Etsy and eBay. It allows independent sellers to display their goods in a shared platform and each of them has their own storefronts and admin panels. Any kind of product can be sold in the platform, be it local farm produce or software solutions. It can also work fast even with a high volume of requests being processed. It is also an open-source system, which gives it a lot of flexibility because when users need a function not present in the software, they can code it themselves.
Every seller has their own storefront called a micro-store that is complete with seller-specific product list, product search, product filters, and others. A marketplace admin will be taking commissions from sellers or offer them pricing plans with varying conditions. He can also do both.
CS-Cart Multi-Vendor also supports more than 80 shipping and payment methods integration. It features a responsive, mobile-optimized design, easy-to-use admin panels, content management system, an array of marketing tools, SEO friendly site, and a loyalty system. It also has a tool named Layout Editor that uses a drag-and-drop functionality to arrange the content of the marketplace.
