Create your own Marketplace with multiple vendors/sellers who can sell their products on your store.
OverviewBack to top
Marketplace Multi Vendor is a multi-vendor/seller module that converts your Magento shop into an online Marketplace. It includes various sections like seller/vendor profile, profile attributes, product collection, order management and a separate profile for seller and customer with feedback and rating features. Satrix Marketplace module is compatible with the community version of Magento. It will also support various add-ons such as split orders and seller/vendor auctions.
Satrix Marketplace Multi Vendor allows multiple sellers to register, login and create the products they wish to sell. The Admin can approve or disapprove any seller. The admin or website owner can approve the seller’s products, to be displayed on the website. The admin also has access to set different commission rates for different sellers. These commission rates will be based either on the product’s price or the cart price. Admin will be responsible for the setup of different commission rates for different sellers and products. The commission can either be fixed or a percentage. There are two different methods of payment to a seller - Bank Transfer and PayPal. If the seller has selected the payment type ‘bank transfer’, then the admin transfers payment to the seller's saved bank account. If the seller has selected ‘PayPal’, then the admin transfers payment to the seller's PayPal account and payment.
The seller management is completely separate to the customer management as there is no relation between the customer account and seller account. Admin can verify the seller by their uploaded verification documents. Seller accounts are based on the EAV model, where the seller can create an unlimited number of attributes which can be used in the seller's account. Admin can set these attributes to show on the front-end for registration or to edit the profile. The seller also has the option to enable or disable email notifications of sales, through their profile.
