Separate Mini Store for Every Vendor
Let vendors promote your online mall. In Multi-Vendor eCommerce software, sellers can have a micro store right inside your marketplace. The micro store URL contains the vendor company name. Vendors can share it to attract customers to your marketplace. It can be promoted as a separate store per se.
Micro stores contain:
- vendor company description
- product filter for vendor items
It takes vendors a couple of minutes to adjust their mini store.
Promotions for Vendors
This feature greatly helps boost vendors’ sales and attract more vendors to your virtual shopping center.
Separate Сheckout by Vendors
Plus, vendors can create their own payment methods and allow customers to use them at checkout. In this case, the whole payment goes straight to the vendor. This is another feature to give more freedom and flexibility to your vendors.
26 Built-In Translations
It is not a machine-based but a community-driven translation made by native speakers. Language variables are translated for all sections: storefront, admin, and vendor panels.
Real-time and Manual Shipping Calculations
Apart from real-time shipping calculations, vendors can set their own manual shipping methods. The system is quite flexible: shipping charges can depend on customer’s location, total order cost, weight, and even the number of items in the order.
With the Customer-to-Vendor Communication function, customers can send a message to vendors right from the product page. It makes products more attractive for buying and helps to convert visitors into paying customers.
Comments and Reviews
Reviews are crucial for any business that cares about its reputation. Customer reviews help vendors get fair credit and earn good image in customers’ opinion. Reviews influence vendors’ and thus your income directly.
Multi-Vendor offers the feedback and review system with an interactive star rating. Customers can comment and rate vendors, products, categories, and orders.
Paid-for positive reviews are useless as customers want to see honest opinions about sellers and their products. With this in mind, we made it so that comments and reviews in Multi-Vendor are moderated by the store administrator, not vendors.
Vendor Account Balance, Sales Reports & Statistics
Besides, vendors can view their account balance to track all payouts and commissions taken by the store administrator. Sellers can also review the income and expenditure statistics: total and per period.
The Vendor Locations function allows customers to support local vendors, receive orders sooner, and easily find nearest vendors.
Design Editor For Vendors
What if your marketplace is in black and white and one of your vendors sells party stuff? That color scheme doesn’t look like a good fit for party products. By using the built-in design and layout editor, the vendor can easily configure a color scheme and the style of their storefront.

According to Web Retailer, online businesses with 40% repeat customers generate 50% more revenue than similar sellers with a 10% repeat customer base.
Stock control, low stock notifications
Give vendors absolute control over their catalog inventory. Vendors can track product inventory with options to track the exact number of items in stock.
Your vendors can also change their stock control settings to “Track without options”. Besides, it is possible to disable inventory tracking if a vendor doesn’t need it.
What if a product is out of stock? Vendors can:
- allow customers to buy in advance
- allow customers to sign up for a notification to learn when the product is available again
And to restock in time, vendors receive low stock notifications.
