One of the best Multi-Vendor platforms out there

2019-03-05

It is highly customizable and it has all the functionality you will ever need to launch an online marketplace.

Pros

Many automation tools - from the vendor approving process to the financial management of the platform. 4.

Cons

Some functionalities are very complicated to set up, they should have a basic set-up and advanced set-up feature. Also, they should work more on the translations options, sometimes the translations don't work correctly.

MultiVendor marketplace is the best ready for production solution out there!

2018-10-31

One of the best experiences I've had working on an ecommerce projects so far.

Pros

It is also developer friendly, so developing custom modules is easy.

Cons

But the "responsive" theme that cs-cart delivers by default, needs a lot of rewrite, or perhaps a decoupling from the core smarty engine and make it more API-driven.

Complete multi-vendor & absolute turnkey solutions for ecommerce business

2018-11-29

Using the CS-Cart multi-vendor software since 1 year for our site and really very pleased with this platform. We are improving everyday with it!

Pros

This is simple, well organized, feature-rich and ready software for multi-vendor based ecommerce business.

Cons

There are huge number of agencies available in their marketplace. but unfortunately when we browse their site/communicate, some/most of them are not proactive, you may see some demos do not work, inactive/slow email response, their developed templates/addons may not up to date etc. overall it can disappoint you easily.

My experience with CS-Cart Multi-Vendor

2018-10-31

My overall experience with Multi-Vendor: Engaging in the international e-commerce platform is perhaps one of the most challenging projection for me. But still I consider it worth trying li̇felong if needed. It is a time demanding job with many aspects to master.

Pros

Its scalability and pricing consciousness is excellent and it provides full development control as an open-source script.

Cons

As a passionate user of Multi-Vendor, there is really not much to object except some features like multi-lingual export/import of data (categories only) which is really time consuming.

Solid platform to easily start with a marketplace

2018-12-04

I can recommend CS-Cart MV for small- to mid-size business who are looking for a solution to build a marketplace that can operate worldwide, support thousands of products from hundreds of vendors presented in dozen of languages.

Pros

1) User-friendly admin area, that is optimized for mobile/tablet browser - highly valued by vendor admins; 2) Great customization possibilities - almost every aspect can be configured, designed, turned on/off, translated or adjusted via the GUI, no need to involve developer; 3) Large helpful community - if you need to make a larger modification you can find inexpensive developers from different countries, or you can ask people at the forum; 4) Great selection of free and paid addons that allow you for implement your custom business processes, intgrate your shop wil myriads of 3rd-party tools. 5) Advanced SEO features that you get out of the box, preconfigured - so you can get pretty good results without spending extra time and money on additional optimization for search engine rankings.

Cons

A few features that were required for my case (e.g. granular access control for vendors, filters by color, fuzzy search logic) were available only as paid addons, but not out of the box.

CS-Cart Multi-Vendor was a major upgrade for my marketplace!

2019-03-18

Then I moved to Opencart, which allowed me to control my costs, but the user interface for both the admin and vendors left a lot to be desired in its complexity.

Pros

As far as design goes, it is so easy for me to change the home page layout on a regular basis with the use of blocks and the simple drag-and-drop functionality.

Cons

One thing is the learning curve is different for the vendors, many of whom are used to selling on Shopify or Etsy, but I have had very few complaints and the majority of my vendors have found our system easy to adapt to.

CS MV means I can do all the tough behind the scenes work, and my vendors can focus on their branding, products & sales.

Pros

It is so customizable. It is easy to create your own unique look & feel across your site, and still customize special pages (for holidays, events, or even daily deals).

Cons

There are now new ways for customers to sort, filter and search for the products they want from any page.

Great Software for Present day Businesses

2018-10-31

Pros

I love the standalone feature of the software. The design looks great with customization of storefront in real time.

Cons

I wonder why I was not able to upgrade my software because I was using shared server. I am not so much happy about that because every efforts proves abortive. I cannot boast of upgrading my server now because of limited budget I am working. Is there any solution?

Most complete and simple Shopping Cart sofware

2018-11-01

It is my go to e-Commerce platform I recommend to anyone needing a simple, but completely customizable online store.

Pros

Vendors can customize their storefront.

Cons

This is only a con for me living in Canada, but because they are overseas, the time difference means a delay in response time for any support issues or general questions. Thankfully, I’ve never had any issues!
