The Marketplace Multi Vendor Extension by CreativeMinds transforms your online store into a thriving multi-vendor marketplace. It allows vendors and suppliers to create, update, track and manage their products and orders through a supplier account in your Magento® eCommerce store. With each account vendors also gain their own vendor dashboard increasing the number of people who contribute to the running of your store without increasing the number of people who need admin privileges. This gives both the site admin and suppliers an easy way to manage products and shipping options as well as to fulfil orders and track sales.

Choose whether your customers should see the product they’re interested in at the lowest possible price or should they see the product sold by the vendor with the best reputation. Promote competition within your store based on what matters most to you.Create either a free and open marketplace with little or no moderation or make your site strictly controlled with no vendors or products being added without your approval. Or choose to moderate globally across the whole site, then make exceptions for vendors on an individual basis until you know you can trust them. Allow free or restricted uploading of new products by vendors, changes to existing product descriptions, vendor signups and much more.
