Default can x-cart run a multi vendor site for me?

Hi all,

I'm looking to run a multi vendor site, which allows each user to run their own store, receive payments, etc BUT all their items will also be available in the central store.

EG:

Car Dealer 1 - town a
Car Dealer 2 - town a
Car Dealer 3 - town b

Each dealer has its own site, uploads items, etc - but customers coming to a central site can search, view, etc their items too. also if they buy the item on the central site the order and fund goes to their central site and not me.

thanks in advance

Hi Mike,

Thank you for taking interest in our software and welcome aboard!

I think our X-Cart PRO should the most of the job for you. But it doesn't support multiple storefronts for sellers. So you'll need to add X-Mall mod, too.

Also, my experience tells me that such projects like yours may have very unique requirements that a shopping cart software may need to be customized for.

Could you please answer some questions for me, your reply will help us to advise you the best solution for you business:

- What and how many products are you going to sell?
- How will you process payments in the store? Do you have an account with any payment gateway already?
- How will you calculate shipping price in the store?
- Do you need unique design for your store? Do you have any preferences for the store layout?
- Where will the store be hosted?

Your details will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

If you feel this kind of information should be kept private - send us a private message using http://www.x-cart.com/contact_us.html
