Note - This module is an add-on of Webkul's Marketplace Module. To use this module, you must have purchased and installed Multi Vendor Marketplace first.
Using Split Cart Marketplace Add-On, buyers can add multiple Seller’s products to their cart with varying checkout options. In other words, we can say this add-on will allow the buyer to add more than one seller’s products to their cart. The buyer can checkout with just one seller's products at a time. While a particular seller’s product added in the cart is being processing for checkout, the other seller's product will remain in the cart.
Use Case of Split Cart Marketplace Add-On -
When buyers add multiple products from different sellers, the shopping cart looks a bit compact. If the buyer goes to checkout, the order will be placed for all the cart products. This way buyers will not be able to choose different options for multiple sellers. So to overcome this problem, the admin can use Split Cart Marketplace add-on. This will allow buyers to checkout and place order separately for each seller in the cart. This way the buyer can choose different options for each seller. These options can be billing and shipping addresses, payment methods and shipping methods.
Note - The guest users will not be able to use split cart functionality. In this add-on Cart is fully customized, so the Magento default blocks will not be called on the cart page.

Hassle Free SHIPPING - Buyer can choose different shipping methods for different sellers. e.g. A buyer is ordering 3 products from 3 different seller. And the buyer wants one of these 3 products urgently. So what he can do is choose express 1 day delivery for that product and checkout.

Clear PAYMENT Options - Using this add-on buyer can choose from different payment options for different sellers. Like a seller is providing COD and other seller are not providing this payment option. So in that case buyer can select COD for that seller and other payment option for others.
Impressive DISCOUNT Handling - Different seller gives different type of discounts to their buyers like discount coupons, credit points and reward points etc. So those discounts can be easily processed at the cart page with the help of Split cart.
Effortless RETURNS - Split cart is very much beneficial at the time of returns. It is very easy forthe buyer, as well as sellers, to workout returns efficiently. If a buyer needs to return a product then he can easily place a return request to the store with the order number and as split cart generates a different order number for different seller then the return request can be easily processed by the seller.
The seller can also be benefited because the checkout is separate and works as normal single seller checkout.
