WordPress makes it possible to offer a multi-vendor marketplace where a buyer can purchase products or services from multiple sellers within the same domain.
Such a use-case offers a way for the site owner to easily aggregate buyers and sellers into a common platform.
This encourages a greater volume of sales, satisfaction and efficiency, while providing revenue-sharing profits for the site owner.
The site owner can combine their own products and services with those of other sellers, and offer management, reporting and sales funnel options for the same.
With this capability, it is possible to emulate the features and flexibility of well known marketplaces such as Amazon or eBay.
When combined with any of the popular E-Commerce plugins and gateways, it is also possible to accept one time payments, subscriptions, installments, invoicing and more.
