OpenCart Multi-vendor Extensions

May 03, 2014

Ground work: There is little if any multi-vendor solutions for OpenCart. Although there exist several OpenCart extensions for multi-vendor shops, they are either abandoned or not functioning. Before purchasing any scripts (extensions) visit the Comments and support.

Questions you must ask yourself:

  • Do I need to sell both digital and physical products? A shop script which offers physical product is much more complex.
  • Do I need to be able to provide each seller information on what was sold - automatically?
  • Are sellers isolated from one another or are they able to see other sellers product transactions and complete inventory?
  • Can sellers have their own landing page?

These may sound like obvious features for a multi-vendor environment, but may not be included. Without having to purchase the extension, you can read the support questions and make the determination.
