Marketplace allows multiple vendors to sell their goods or services on a single platform. Sellers in return need to pay commission to the store admin. This way, the Marketplace platform benefits both the sellers and the store owner. In addition to that, the marketplace allows customers to look for a variety of items or brands on a single platform. Thus saving both customer efforts and time. Nowadays, Multi-Vendor Marketplace is a game-changer in the eCommerce world.
For vendors, the marketplace is the best platform to sell their products as store admin is responsible for all the website maintenance and development activities. Store owners without the need to invest in tons of items can earn a huge amount of profit from seller commissions, seller orders, and membership plans.
In this write-up, we will explain how an eCommerce store owner can upgrade their business into a Multi-Vendor Marketplace in 3 simple steps. All this is possible because of the Knowband’s Multi-Seller Marketplace extensions. Online store owners without any coding knowledge can convert their store into Multi-Seller Marketplace effortlessly.
How does it Work?
The sellers need to register using the sign-in form available at the front end of the store and wait for the store admin approval. Once the store owner accepts the request, the seller can start adding and selling products on the store. Sellers need not get involved in complex coding or the website development for launching the website
Marketplace built using the Multi-Vendor Marketplace module will work exactly like the well-established marketplace i.e. Amazon, eBay, Etsy where sellers register themselves to provide services or products to buyers. Similarly, a separate seller dashboard will be provided to vendors where they can update their profiles, list inventories, manage shipping services, track orders, and monitor the transactions.
Store owners in return can operate and manage all the seller details like orders, listings, reviews, shipping, and transactions from the backend of their store.
