Create Online Marketplace

Develop an Online marketplace like Amazon or Flipkart

Multivendor or rather a multiseller marketplace has been one of the most excellent opportunities for new entrepreneurs. A Multivendor Marketplace is an online store where multiple vendors come together to sell their products thus making a profit.

Multivendor marketplace working

There are basically three entities involved in a Multivendor Marketplace namely: admin, vendor, and customer. All the vendors are required to get themselves registered to the admin’s website in order to sell their products.

Multivendor marketplace provides for a smooth communication between the vendors and the customers. It allows customers to interact with multiple vendors. So, when customers place orders from the website the order is passed to the vendors and they dispatch the product to the customer. Customer can add multiple products from different sellers in one single order. The Admin (marketplace owner) makes money by commission fee on each successful transaction.
