About CS-Cart Multi-Vendor

CS-Cart Multi-Vendor is standalone eCommerce software that allows you to create an online marketplace. In Multi-Vendor, independent vendors can sell their products through a single storefront. In a Multi-Vendor marketplace, each vendor has their own micro-stores with product filters, vendor product list, vendor product search, and all. You can take commissions from your vendors, offer them pricing plans with different conditions, or both.

Pros: One time fee. You buy it, it's yours for life.

Super easy to customize.

A plethora of options.

Vendors can customize their storefront.

Great forum. People are always willing to help.

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!

Overall: I've been using CS-Cart for almost 9 years now on multiple websites. It is my go to e-Commerce platform I recommend to anyone needing a simple, but completely customizable online store. It is incredibly easy to set up, and offers so much customizability out of the box that it is easy to make it unique and professional-looking, on a non-recurring cost model.

The Multi-Vendor edition of CS-Cart essentially lets other people sell on your site, while you either take a commision or monthly fee. Vendors get their own login and Admin panel.

All you have to do to get started is create "Vendor Plans" you want to offer. For example, you can create a plan called "Basic" that takes 5% commission of any product sold by them, $0 monthly fee, only allows them to have 50 products in their "storefront", and has a max of $5,000 monthly revenue. You can also choose which category of products they have access to. When a vendor signs up, they just choose which plan they would like, and enter their info. You can approve and deny anyone. CS-Cart displays all the plans on a nice, modern-looking page for you, which you can also customize.

Features:

Automatically charge vendors every month or one-time.

Approve products before they're added to your site.

Vendors can have multiple accounts for different employees.

Vendors can edit the layout of their "storefront", colors, and even add/modify CSS. (you can disable that if you prefer)

Too much to mention for the amount of space they give you here.

Pros: I was pleasantly surprised with the depth of functionality that this system has straight out the box. I have launched a fully functional marketplace for personalised products with only a tiny spend on software development. All the functionality I would have wanted is already there straight out the box. The options configurations are quite sophisticated so I was able to set up very complex products giving customers the ability to completely personalize their products before ordering. You are able to easily sell digital products as well.

The processes have all been well though through. It takes vendors minutes to set up their shipping once you as the marketplace administrator have loaded all the postal codes / locations.

You are easily able to set the system up so that you can approve vendors, vendor products and any changes they make to their products before they go live on the storefront.

Easy to manage what you charge the vendors and the transaction / financial management is easy to understand and use for both the marketplace admin and the vendors.

Its also great that there is so many add-ons that can be purchased in the CS cart marketplace which can literally be clicked on and off. This allowed me to add a messenger tool -customers can message the vendor directly from the storefront to ask questions about the product). It also allowed me to set up a vacation status for when vendors are away (customer cannot order vendors products while vendor is on vacation).

Cons: When I first started with the system 3 years ago, the user documentation was really bad and consequently took me forever to figure out how things worked. Its almost as though someone just typed up what they saw on a screenshot but did not explain how it actually worked. However, they have obviously put a lot of effort into the documentation since as now when i look something up, its very clearly explained and easy to follow.

When logging an issue, although they respond immediately, they typically take 2-3 days to address the issue. However, when they do, its always 100% and I never have had to go back again on the same issue. Additionally, my issues have never been urgent, so 2-3 days has not bothered me.

Pros: We are selling on ebay, amazon, etsy and bonanza for 10 years. We Invested 6 months testing 5 multi vendor platform and nothing was satisfying as far as security, stability ,reliability and features were missing in all of them. CS cart multi vendor platform was the best option on our list and after testing the system for 2 months we found that the system do what it suppose to do and we can trust the company who built it. it's rich functionality system which allow you to configure and customize the system for your needs. we were able to pay CS cart team and third party partners to build add-ons for the missing features we needed. most eCommerce will try to charge you for many features that CS- Cart included in your license. their support ticketing system is working as they reply within few hours with resolution. they are offering everything you need to allow buyers and sellers engage in communication and sales transactions. the system have a lot of cool features included in such as up-sell items on checkout, alternative items, accessories for item, shipping, payments, qty discounts, variants, custom fields , discount per customer group, manage your markup commission clearly, block countries, multi currency, multi language, open API integration and more. you can save time by duplicate items and sellers can design and build their own store like in Ebay or you can change the system settings to set it more like amazon style.

Cons: if you like to hide sellers and buyers emails from each other then it must be done with small customization work that can take about 7 days. no bigi and not expensive to do...and it's working.

Overall: The company care about customer voice as they contacted us to get our feedback several times. we used sim tech company to build custom add on for CS cart and they deliver the results week earlier then expected.

Pros: It has been almost 2 year since I have started using CS-Cart Multivendor software for my ecommerce marketplace. I have tried almost 20+ php shopping cart scripts available in market. Prior to using cs-cart multivendor, I had spent thousands of dollars in trying out different solution and opensource software.

However, After I purchased cs-cart multi-vendor for my website, I am amazed with cs-cart multivendor features and how it can create boundless possibilities to operate my website.

The most thing that I liked about the CS-Cart Multivendor software is the backend/admin section of the software where I have limitless possibilities to configure my website. Whatever the features I can imagine, either it is already built-in or i can find it in the extensive addon marketplace offered by CS-Cart. With cs-cart, I believe my website offers same or better experience than amazon or any other global marketplaces. I am truly thankful to the amazing cs-cart development team. :)

Cons: I cannot say cs-cart is perfect in every possible way, the most thing that seem to be lagging in the software is the mobile application. With such an amazing shopping cart software, cs-cart team seem to be overlooking the fact that most of the online shopping happens in mobile applications. I would expect same quality of mobile application bundled with the ca-cart multivendor software so that the entrepreneurs get their arsenal is ready to conquer their dreams.

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. I would also appreciate more detailed roadmap to be published, so I would know if it make sense to purchase/ask to develop some functionality as an addon, or I shall wait till it become available as built-in feature. Customer support sometimes is overloaded and cannot provide a quick answer.

Overall: CS-Cart Multi-Vendor, in my opinion, is mature platform to start with a marketplace within very short timeframe. It has enough features bundled to start your operations, and if you face you are missing something - there are different options to get them without great investments. The most important for me and my clients is that we feel secured: there are always experts around (CS-Cart support or community experts) who are ready to help. 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: There is List of Positive i like in it.

1) Framework Design structure - Cs-cart Team has designed a very flexible framework and internally independent , as a result it becomes easier to develop it to any level. We have created 60 Plugins and running on single platform. When we have so much changes system becomes complicated...but in cs-cart it is not.

2) Easy to start - When we were fresher or a Start-up - the foundation framework supported a Lot. Support by software is very important for any start-up or Business.

3) Security - Cs-cart team is very fast in rectification security even before any user gets experienced. Practically every time cs-cart updates us about any Vulnerability they found.

4) Cs-cart Design also helps to develop in Team. - Just because cs-cart is structurally independent ...we can connect multiple developers on multiple tasks and merge it at last...resulting easy manageable process for development.

5)Support from Cs-cart team and level of upgrades they provide - They are very good and now a days they are working extremely hard and fast to provide good updates to its customer as per Market.

I will only say - Its best than anything

Cons: At present - Nothing. As everything is possible. and we can do anything we see in Any system on it without any issue or complications

Pros: Easy to implement and use

Lightning fast, gets A score from any web site speed test out of the box

Tons of built in features. You barely need to install any additional add-on.

Great support and steady upgrades

Cons: The biggest concern is the lack of well built themes and add-ons for very specific needs.

Some tiny detailed features need to improve but developers improve the overall package with each upgrade

Overall: We have been in E-Commerce business (both development and Seller) since 2006. We have some fairly large stores working on Magento for last 6 years. Magento is a well built "Platform" but unfortunately it is far from being an all-in-one E-Commerce package. It HEAVILY relies on add-ons and plug-ins even for some light and simple features. After a while it becomes inevitable for any Magento users that you'll have a hybrid, very difficult to manage, a tangle of little sub-systems developed by many different providers. On top of everything, version 1 is so outdated and version 2 is not on its prime time yet. Both versions are painfully slow and full of strange bugs! You need to take so many miles just to get your website fast enough so your customers can browse your products. So much to say about Magento but I'll cut it quick: We finally gave up! And we have been researching for a replacement package for last 2 years and our choice was CS-Cart. I can confidently say that it is the best decision we have made so far. We have been testing CS-Cart MV for 1 year on a brand new project (it's still in beta phase) but at the end of the day we know we love CS-Cart so we will eventually phase out our Magento stores and migrate all of them to CS-Cart. It's so easy and full of features finally our team can focus on selling something not debugging or code manipulating.

Pros: I really like scalability of CS-Cart. It was not overwhelming for me to use when I started few years ago, and now as we grow, we are still able to utilise its advanced features. Some solutions out there become restrictive after a few years, however, this is not the case for CS-Cart. It just helps business to grow and matures with it.

Another important aspect of it is that it just works. It is very agile, robust, secure and intuitive for new members. Cs-Cart team keeps on top of all the latest developments and therefore this solutions is very powerful, even just out of the box.

There are a few very good developers who specialise in CS-Cart and very tuned into business aspects. As a result, you get some good add ons that keep this solution on the cutting edge of e-commerce.

Cons: I can not really find anything bad about Cs-Cart. But if I really need to find something, I would say that although creators of CS-Cart listen to feedback from users, sometimes they do not implement functionalities which are on my wish list. However, these could be too specific to my business and therefore, if nobody else asks for them, they do not get implemented. Great thing is that there are developers out there which can supercharge and evolve Cs-Cart for even the most demanding businesses.

Pros: I have been using CS-Cart MV for 3 years now without any issues. It has all the features you can ever imagine if you compare to any Multivendor platform like Amazon..Its fast, changes are applied instantly, product options are amazing. You can also act on behalf of Vendors from the admin Panel and process orders. I dont have the latest update but I have been using my version without bugs whatsoever. I have tried many others platforms, I would say this is the easiest one to use by far. You can also find a lot of 3rd party add-ons and themes at affordable prices. I also like the import/export tool and its responsive on any plattform you are using. Great work from CS-Cart team and developers, keep it up.

Cons: Nothing really, I discovered one bug when adding products with variables options, some work to be done manually, but I am sure this has been resolved in one of the updates I dont have. Another thing is the display of products on mobile, I would like to have 2 products per row by default instead of one.

Overall: Overall its a great experience using CS-Cart MV, I dont have a lot of Vendors, but focusing on a few line of products. Our vendors like it, especially that products can be approved by admin before going live in one click!

Nothing can beat it.

Pros: The admin and vendor's panel is very easy to use and that's really matters especially for the first time user.

The ease of payment settlement between the vendors is what makes me to fell in love with it. One can easily customize the layout. Inbuilt SEO makes it perfect choice for e-commerce entrepreneurs. Flexibility in setting commission for each category is very important feature which is there in CS-Cart MV. You can create your own promotions. Hassle free accounting, a rich CS-Cart Marketplace and many more amazing features.

Cons: Till now I didn't find anything which I like least. Everything is perfect and amazing.

Overall: Scaling up an e-commerce business is what seems difficult, but CS-Cart Multivendor helps you in this, now anyone can register and sell their products at your website. Easy to use and hassle free accounting makes one easy to scale up their business. It has each and every feature, you can start your business in no time. A great customer support is what one should take care while going with anyone, believe me CS-Cart gives the best and fast customer support and you will never feel like they are helping you remotely. If you want to start your own e-commerce business where you want your seller to have their personal dashboard with full features, CS-Cart Multivendor is the best product. Nothing can beat it. Very satisfying.

Pros: We picked CS-Cart out of 8 different other software (including Magento) and I have to say it's the best decision we ever made.

CS-Cart was so easy to install and configure, and great value for money without compromising on any of the key functionality, quality and reliability we needed.

There are plenty of themes and add-ons to choose from as well as great built-in features out of the box - including SEO features which is critical for a high trafficked site like ours.

The product is easy to customise and gave us endless possibilities with integrating with other parts of our site, such as community and CRM.

Cons: We're located in Australia, so the one concern we had originally was whether support will be tardy or inefficient, but the team at CS-Cart were always responsive, knowledgeable and go beyond their call of duty to help out. The service was awesome!

Overall: We started using CS-Cart 6 years ago, and we haven't looked back since. Our buyers and sellers love it, and that's why we love it, because ultimately that's the experience we want our customers to enjoy.

Pros: - a fair price for a powerful tool - it's not very expensive but it has many features you need for a marketplace

- You can start immediately after installing

- There are a lot of tutorials - so you can learn fast and understand all of the features

- There are many add-ons you can install for small money

- It's fast and it has everything on board for perfect SEO

- There are many good developers like Simtech Dev. who can help you for a small fee to create some individual modifications

Cons: - The translations don't work too perfect sometimes - my common language is German ... that could be better

- German law is sometimes very strange, so we need a lot of modifications to be within German law ... a complete package for German law would be great like in Magento

Overall: We started our Marketplace in April 2017 and we had purchases on the first day we started ... that was a great feeling.

Now one and a half year later, we have over 100 Vendors and over 10.000 Products and we are still growing.

In the next month our Marketplace will be the first in this class of Marketplaces (Handmade jewelery, clothings, furniture and so on) in Germany which realized "Mobile First" ... thanks to Simtech Development.

So we are happy that we decided to buy CS-Cart Multi-Vendor

Pros: This is simple, well organized, feature-rich and ready software for multi-vendor based ecommerce business. Just need to install it and start selling products. Also there are lot of opportunities to scale it up by customizing everything according to the needs to meet a big dream in ecommerce business world.

Cons: CS-Cart itself is very rich, no doubt! but when you need something extra features, you may look for other service provider who can provide this support. 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. But still few of them are very proactive and up to date and can give you best standard support you need.

I found no issues yet with CS-Cart itself.

Overall: 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: 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). The built in features mean you do not need to know how to code. You can build it from the tools available.

Cons: I have been using this software for my multi-vendor marketplace for 5 years. Initially there were some features not available, however, the team behind the software is amazing! Every request I made, they took seriously. There are now new ways for customers to sort, filter and search for the products they want from any page. The capability is phenomenal.

Overall: I am the owner of multi-vendor marketplace. That means we have about 50 vendors, selling similar products, on one site. CS MV means I can do all the tough behind the scenes work, and my vendors can focus on their branding, products & sales. It is an ideal set-up for people wanting to work from home or earn a little cash.

Pros: I found this software to be feature rich similar to the world's well known marketplaces. It offers a far greater ability of control and creativity something which of course is not so with other apps. For those those who wish, there is a large choice of templates suitable to almost any type of marketplace as well as various add-on apps. the customer service is truly exceptional! Over the years I have used many different software applications but the service has always fallen short however the tech support at CS-Cart is truly exceptional.

Cons: It can be a bit daunting to proceed and work through the setup stages and get your head around some of the more technical aspects but in view of the many features of the software it is understandable.

Overall: My experience from beginning to end, from comparing different marketplace software applications, to deciding, implementation and after sales support has and continues to be a positive experience unlike may other applications. It took me many months to first search for marketplace applications, research and compare them and ask a whole lot of questions (in fact one popular marketplace I contacted them at least a dozen times without a single response!) and finally choose on one which I felt would suit my business needs.

Pros: The software's global aspect is the most attractive part in my opinion. International payment methods and shipping methods along with localization features make it the most rich featured multi-vendor software around. 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. Beyond that, qualitative themes availability in the "marketplace" falls a bit short.

Overall: 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 lifelong if needed. It is a time demanding job with many aspects to master.

Within click of few buttons your multivendor script will be updated to the latest version.

Cons: So far I am not able to find anything which I like least. Everything so far is in good shape. And development team is working hard on launching the updated version according to current e-commerce trend.

Overall: My overall experience is Excellent. I would recommend CS-Cart to anyone. Excellent script. Very professional. Easy to use. Thank you CS-Cart Team. You guys making e-Commerce business easy.

Pros: It is very easy to work with, the features are in abundance, and it caters to pretty much every scenario covered in running a multi-vendor marketplace operation. It is also developer friendly, so developing custom modules is easy. The support from cs-cart is also one of their best features.

Cons: Front-end interface needs an upgrade. There are a lot of JS libraries catering to super fast front-ends. This is one area that CS-Cart should focus their energy on. I understand that it can be done with custom theme development as well, but I'd like CS-Cart's official support on it. We have seen that with recent upgrades, the admin panel has received a good facelift. 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.

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

Pros: I've been looking for a Multi-vendor platform for a long time. I even reach development companies to build it for me. I was willing to pay up to $30,000 to have a professional one. The market is full with the e-shopping platforms, but no one is supporting the Multi-Vendor platform as CS cart. It is easy to use and to build without any professional help. It was built from the scratch to support Multi-vendors, not like other e-commerce services where you have the multi-vendor as an add-ons feature.

Cons: You will need some time to wrap your head around the dashboard. And this is normal for all e-commerce software.

Overall: I like the fast support and the constant updates. Plus, the platform is so flexible, which makes it great with the add-ons.

Pros: - Easy to start with it. The installation is very simple.

- We are using the full Multi-Vendor solution, so the included features are very great to start a complete marketplace in few days!

- The price is good comparing to the given advantages

Cons: - Not easy to find a good developer in order to do some special customization

- The supporting community still not big comparing to other solutions' communities!

Overall: It took us only few days to install and start our journey with CS-Cart. We thought that CS-Cart will be only a staging solution to start our project, but later we found that we can do most of our requirements with it.

Yet we have done many special customization, but the standard features are great to start with.

We just face it some hard time to find good develops, plus the cs-cart community still not big enough.

I personally feel that cs-cart should be the popular solution when it comes to develop eCommerce projects.

Pros: Multi-Vendor is very feature-rich and by default, it offers features that other platforms don't have out of the box. CS-Cart Multi-Vendor is a software for building a multi seller eCommerce marketplace similar to eBay, Etsy, and Amazon. This is a ready-made online mall solution.

You only need to install it on your server and start attracting sellers and customers.

If you are looking for the best marketplace software, you are in a right place!

Cons: Multi-Vendor has paid support and sometimes charge you without any serious issue. Also i would like more information how to do for dummies.

Overall: Overall cs-cart multi-vendor it is a value for money e-commerce platform

Pros: As a marketer (not a developer) I have consistently appreciated and valued the platform's ability to meet my needs and expectations as they have developed. It continues to ring true for me, if you think of a capability/feature you need, the site delivers it.

Cons: A bit of a steep learning curve to get up to speed on the program. Some of the email templates could use design improvements.

Overall: Really very pleased after one year with the platform and feel it's been a solid investment. I very much appreciate and value the consistent and helpful service I have received from the CS Cart tech team when I have called on them.

I'm currently working on tax compliance in the US and value the standard performance features here and associated integrated add-on options.

I've appreciated the platform's flexibility in it's ability to customize and create multiple payment methods for my vendors and for the marketplace itself.

Pros: A lot of build in options and a nicely developed marketplace with extensions.

I also like that it's developing a bit faster in the recent year.

Some features are very neatly done and implemented, very easy to use.

Cons: Some functionalities (not that many) are so complicated to use and have no support pages, that they are unfair to be called built in features.

Overall: Overall I'm pleased with it and have already bought 2 licenses. It's a very good solution for a young company that intends to grow to a mid level size.

The technology it's using is quite old, so not too many developers want to work on it, but you must say that it's quite a complete and comprehensive solution that actually works quite well. I can recommend it!

So, if you are really care about Security and more reliable about your business, CS-Cart Multi-Vendor is the only option for you; if you are not concerning about Security, you can pick any one of them.

Pros: This solution for creating a marketplace is very convenient for those who do not want to spend tons of time and money on developing and creating their own unique CMS.

CMS allows you to make improvements, change the functionality (if you find a qualified contractor) for your tasks. It is really a very flexible solution.

Cons: May be there' s a lack of landing page constructors.

Overall: Our vendors can fast and easy add their products on the site (http://all-market.info)!

Pros: The features are perfect for someone who want to launch a marketplace, you have all you need to launch your marketplace quickly. They often update, which has always been at the forefront of updates from other market players such as paypal or DHL for example.

It's very easy to understand the back office : how to add product, how to add category, vendors plans...

And even you have huge needs, there is Multi-Vendor Plus.

It's THE software for anyone who want to launch a marketplace without spending a fortune

Cons: I think there are only one thing, the default design. I think they can do a effort to do a better modern design.

Pros: I've been looking for software to develop a marketplace. A big plus for me was that the developers from Russia. Also no less important for me was the initial low price for a fairly well-designed product. Simple and intuitive interface that everyone can understand. Quite a lot of additional additions from third-party developers.

Cons: One of the disadvantages was not critical, because he decided to Supplement the developers. Since the international version, lacked payment methods for Russia. several features are missing in the basic version, but they are solved with the help of additional paid modules.

Overall: I am currently developing my own project. marketplace in the agricultural sector. at the moment, the basic functions and additional topics are sufficient. very happy.

Pros: E-commerce is all that CS-Cart does. They have continued to fine tune this product over years of development into a platform that can keep up with the major sites out there. The software is fast even on very cheap hosting. Installation, setup is simple and you can be up and running very quickly. One of the greatest assets to this platform is a very rich third party developer community. If CS-Cart doesn't haven't natively, I am sure one of the very dedicated developers in the community has it or will be able to do it easily for you. You can't go wrong using this platform.

Cons: I would still like to see more development for global marketplaces. Unless I am missing something, I don't see an easy way for vendors with different base currencies having the ability to enter their values in their native currency and have a website with mixed currency. If this does exist, I would love to learn how to do it, I just don't see it on my own.

Major PRO is that they haven't just designed the software and left it, there actually constantly upgrading, adding addons etc.

Cons: Thinking what is a negative for this software, nothing comes into my head.

Overall: My overall experience is SUPERB. I would recommend without hesitation. The price is fair, customer service is fantastic and the software is solid. What more can you ask?...

Pros: EVERYTHING! For one year, I was looking for a good multivendor software and I tested several ones. But CS-Cart Multivendor has completely excelled my expectations also because the cost-effectiveness is excellent. You don't find this anywhere else... Everything is extremely user-friendly and highly customizable. You can set as much tax rules you want, shipping methods and much more. Also, when I need help, CS-Cart answers within 1-2 days which is just awesome. Oh and I'm an absolute beginner in coding but I managed everything by my own (www.urbankissed.com) because it is so easy to use!

Cons: The credits I need to pay when I need help could be a bit cheaper. But that's it!

Pros: I have tried other multi-vendor packages. Most are so filled with bugs that they cannot run reliably. CS-Cart is extremely versatile and the company works overtime to make sure that it runs smoothly no matter what you are attempting to accomplish. I am not use to that. My business concept is extremely challenging and CS-Cart professionals help me with solutions with minimal wait time. Do not waste your time and money on other multi-vendor sellers who over promise and cannot deliver. No only will CS-Cart stand behind their products, they offer money-back guarantees.

Cons: CS-Cart has a pattern of thinking and logic that requires some study. Once, you see how they do things, the learning curve speeds up considerably. The programmers and coders are brilliant! You may have to change your traditional thinking about this type of software works initially.

Overall: I am working on a new concept for the entertainment industry. It has a lot of moving parts and I needed a great deal of help to get it organized and into the software but CS-Cart pulled it off painlessly.

Cons: Very little. Some functionalities can certainly be improved, as with any software. That said, this is feature rich, with a consistent performance that we are very impressed by.

Overall: We evaluated other platforms, but the multivendor, single check out functionality was a determining variable for our system. The open source nature is equally important as the world evolves, so must software. The team from CS-Cart that we hire to make our customizations are fast, efficient and very friendly.

Pros: CS-Cart Multi-Vendor is designed as an inherently multi-vendor marketplace - not a shopping cart with a multi-vendor add-on or an etailer that also serves as gateway for anonymous vendors under a common banner. The admin panel is efficient, easy to use, and provides a LOT of standard built-in functions which are available only as add-ons to other packages.

Cons: As with many programs, the User Manual could benefit from a fresher. It's not bad, or glaringly missing any functionality, but there are some parts that were written less recently than others and could benefit from a single-editor's hand.

I work on website with 2 programmists because my competence is not enough. And, there are a lot of features for russian market and less for international.

Pros: I have been using CS-Cart software for the past 20 years, and I have not seen software like this open and user-friendly. So I know developers are working very hard to see that they are upgraded to new features every year. I hope to make good software in the future.

Cons: Although there are not many disadvantages, there are still a lot of deficiencies in other language support except for English and Russia. And the payment system for each country may not work well, so I hope that it will be easier to use.

Pros: They offer a ready-to-use solution. The admin panel is very user-friendly and has everything for a smooth import of the details.

The 30-day trial is installed on a hosting of our choice. The admin panel works for 30 days without any limitations and then blocks. We can unlock the panel using the license key issued to you the moment the license is purchased and continue working on your store. All the data entered and changes made will be saved there. It means we can start working on our marketplace during the free period already.

Cons: Even though the software has various payment processors, still we would like to have payment processor options for INR currency.

Pros: The software provides just about everything that you could want to create your own online marketplace.

There are integrations and plugins for a multitude of payment processors and an active community of developers creating affordable plugins and bespoke modifications. I spent a lot of time researching other software and bespoke development, nothing came close for the price. And a bespoke development was quoted at over 10 times what I paid for MultiVendor.

Cons: Free support only last 3 months which isn't long when you're building your system alongside other full time commitments.

Overall: The team behind CS-Cart Multivendor are quick to respond and deal with all queries professionally. They're easy to deal with.
