What Multi-Vendor is Capable Of

A Multi-Vendor store is an e-commerce mall—different vendors sell their products in a shared marketplace, and the root administrator regulates vendors’ activities.

Generally, Multi-Vendor stores sell common products, like electronics, apparel, video games, cosmetics, and others, from various vendors. But Multi-Vendor is not only about selling electronics and apparel—it’s open to your creative ideas.

We’d like to show you 3 Multi-Vendor stores that use creative business ideas.

Tombokka

The Tombokka store offers apparel, cushions, bags, wall clocks, phone cases, and laptop sleeves with unique designer prints.

Tombokka has a catalogue of its vendors, who are actually artists. Each artist creates prints in his or her own style—you will find a t-shirt to your taste or a wall clock that matches your interior.

For the Man I Love

For the Man I Love is another Multi-Vendor marketplace that uses a creative idea—it specializes on gifts for men only.

Sometimes, finding a gift for a husband or a boyfriend becomes a real challenge. For the Man I Love helps to find the right gift for the modern man. The store offers a great choice of grooming products, accessories, menswear, gadgets, and other products from vendors all over the world.

Prondo

Prondo is an online publishing company from Russia.

Although this website uses an old version of Multi-Vendor, it combines impressive features in one place:

  • Self-publishing for authors—authors publish their books keeping the copyright
  • Selling e-books—after an author publishes a book, he or she sells it as an e-book
  • Printing books on demand—Prondo prints a copy of a book after a customer orders it; also, an author can demand 30 or more copies printed for personal needs or distribution
  • Publishing services by the Prondo team—designing book covers, editing, proofreading, marketing, and other services


There are a lot of creative business ideas around you, and Multi-Vendor can help you convert them into reality.

    Hi,
    I too run my multi vendor website based on cs-cart. I see the examples quoted above uses custom themes and templates.I always have problem during upgrades when using custom templates/themes. As a matter of fact, i had bought templates/themes from recognized sellers with good reputation. Just my luck. I wish these sites good luck.

    THanks
    Hari

      Hello!

      Thank you for your interest to this post.

      That is true, some custom themes can cause issues during the upgrade. We recommend to buy themes and templates from trusted companies only so as to minimize problems during the upgrade.
