MarketPress Multi-Vendor Support

Anyone know about setting up Multi-Vendor Support for Marketpress? I want to allow users to be able to upload, sell and manage their own products. I've read in the forums that this is possible, just looking to see if there is anyone who has done this before?

    Hi and Welcome to WPMUdev forums!

    Marketpress is great for allowing multiple users to sell items!

    You can do so two ways:

    1. You can enable a multisite setup where each vendor has their own store AND you can create a global store on your main site (or any other site you choose) that features all the items. This is the best way, as everyone has their own paypal address and nothing get mixed up.

    2. You can have a single site where you create multiple users, who all log in and manage their products from one site. This would be more difficult as you would need to keep tally of who sold what and disbursement of sales notifications.

    Or you can use a combination of the two to do what you envision :slight_smile:

    There are lots of different solutions, ways to do what you need. Maybe some other members will chime in with their experiences.

    Best and let us know if you need anything!

    Thank you Kimberly! I really appreciate your detailed feedback.

    Have you seen any examples of this or any tutorials that we could review. We're trying to find the best approach to creating the multisite - multivendor option (#1).

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
