Marketplace Plugin Functionality

In the Marketplace plugin, it mentions creating your own "etsy." Does this mean that there is a functionality for users to upload goods / services to the website for another user to sell? Or is the marketplace / store products only available for the admins to upload?

    Greetings carlo_navarro,

    Thank you for this great question and a significant item to bring up.

    Does this mean that there is a functionality for users to upload goods / services to the website for another user to sell? Or is the marketplace / store products only available for the admins to upload?

    What this means is that you can setup Market Press to be an etsy style store by employing PayPal chained payments gateway within Market Press and letting people create their own stores (sub sites) maintaining their own products and the main site store normally has products shown from the sub site stores.

    By virtue of using PayPal chained payments the network owner can get a designated commission of the sales of the sub site stores.

    Thank you for being a WPMU Dev Community Member!

    With that said, will each store (sub-site) have autonomy over, and the ability to manage, their own tax rates and shipping rates based on the stores physical location, which more often than not will be different from the main stores physical location, thus requiring different tax and shipping rates, be it flat rate or through a USPS or UPS plugin?

    This is so important for a Marketplace yet WooCommerce and all the others we've researched do not offer it?!? If it isn't this way out of the box, can a work around be done so that we can set it up in this manner? PLEASE SAY YES!!!

Thank NAME, for their help.
