Overview

With this extension customers are able to apply for a vendor account (works similar to affiliate accounts in Opencart). Their profiles are reviewed by administrator. Once the customer gets their vendor account approved, they can create new products and publish them along with other regular products in the store. The administrator can limit a number of available products per account.

Regular customers will see a general information about a seller in the store, they can add their products to the cart. The cart will be split visually by vendors to show what products belong to each vendor and their shipping cost. The shipping cost is calculated for each vendor separately basing on shipping methods defined by the administrator. It is possible to allow vendors to define shipping rates on their own with a separate extension called 'Custom Shipping Methods'. 

Once a customer placed an order and the payment is cleared, the vendor will be able to manipulate the 'Delivery status' to inform a customer about the order status. The administrator can enable a delivery confirmation button available to customers which has to be clicked to confirm the delivery

When the order gets 'Delivered' status, a new transaction is created to the vendor account with deduction of store commission. We assume, that the administrator will revise those transactions periodically and make payments to vendors.

Extension limitations

Vendors cannot define product options at this moment. Most likely it will be implemented in future versions of the module.

Vendors cannot define special/discount price rules. They can define a regular price and one active special price.

Vendors cannot receive payments directly from customers (like defining their Paypal account)

'Beta version' status

The beta status means that we have concerns about flawless of extension functionality. The extension is quite complex and differs from a standard extension architecture. This extension is based on a new 'Ka Extensions' library version which in turn introduces 'Kamod' engine for Opencart 3. All these facts make us think that the module should be reviewed for some time before marking it available as a release. That is why we offer this module for free for now. You can install it on your store and see if it works for you. We will provide a limited support of the beta extension. It includes a free installation service on a default Opencart store and bug fixes. Adaptation of this module to a 3rd party theme is not covered by the free beta extension support.

Your feedback is much appreciated! Even if you did not install the extension, please let us know in comments what features are essential for you in an extension like this.

What happens after public release

There will be a time when we switch the module license to a commercial version. But users, who had a confirmed installation of the beta version, will get the commercial module license for free.

Demo Store

The demo store uses a custom theme, but it looks very similar to a default one except colors and other details. The multivendor extension does not include any theme and it is compatible with the default theme only out of the box.
