How to create a b2b Multi Vendor Marketplace?

B2b marketplaces are complex in nature even building a marketplace requires a huge amount of market research and merchants experience.

Obviously Any one can start the b2b marketplace development from scratch but that will cost huge amount of money + time as well.

As we are building marketplaces from last 10 years and we are the largest suppliers of multi vendor marketplace software in the world. Here are our recommendation

Open source – choose open source frameworks or tools, as customisation is the key part in any b2b store or marketplace.

Community support – Along with open source ensure that community support is also there. Example B2b shops also requires huge amount of 3rd party integrations without having a proper community support framework may stuck at various places like

API integration with various retailers and dropshippers.

Shipping and logistics management
