My rating is based on few day trial period. I am not reviewing app functionality once it is opened for business. Main reason for leaving 3 stars is due to the fact that there were errors in Sellers profile page. I hade to take number of screenshots for them to fixt it. Truthfully, as I was testing PRO plan and this should not happen. From shop owner point of view, the last thing you want is to waste your time finding errors and sending screenshots. They were happy to fix those errors, but they should not been there in the first place. This is a basic level and I would advise you to improve this. I found customer service to be helpful. Replied reasonably quickly and helped with my enquiries. Also expect to deal with coding. They helped with adding/removing codes to install the app, so that is great. There were few things I was not ok how they were displayed on Sellers page, for example some of Search and Filter boxes were different sizes and it just did not look nice and it looked cheap. For that I got answer I would need to change codes myself or pay them extra. I general, it looks like you can achieve a lot with this app as there are a lot of functions. Expect to pay more than the PRO advertised price as if you are looking for a full marketplace you will need to add their other apps and there is an additional charge for that. Again, i can only say about my experience while i was testing the app.
Hi, Thanks for the review.
Let me address the points one by one :
1) Seller Profile Page - There are ample of themes available on the store, so there can be a possibility that the seller profile page might not work well with some of the themes, but that is not an issue, this is something that is due to the variations in the theme developed by different developers. And few of the issue was on ipad were taken care of very soon.
2) Apart from that there were no errors reported, all that you require was some changes on the page, and for that the team has told that about code for the page and you could do on your own.
3) All the basic marketplace feature is included in the app, but if you need some high end features, then feature app is needed. We can easily increase the app pricing and can add all the add-on features as mandatory part of the package, but we have kept the app pricing as low as feasible and have provided easy plug and play options, so you only pay for the feature you are using, not for some high end package, which is of no use to you.
We are looking forward to helping you with the App, please contact us from the Support details mentioned on the page.
I'm happy with the App because of the depth and width of topics it covers and the unique options that no other app offers. Every time I create a ticket it is tackled by a knowledgeable team who would not rest until it's resolved. Sometimes there are features that are not useful for my store and I have to disable them. I gave 3 stars because the app might seem too technical or some features are complicated to set and could be improved.
My initial 1 star rating was a bit impetuous because in "my personal" opinion they didn't explain things clear enough, mainly the app on its own does NOT sync with any apps, which it seems to claim in BOLD letters, Shopify or otherwise. If you want to Sync with Shopify stores it's an extra $40, if you also want to sync with WooCommerce stores it's another $25, etc... The app does somethings well, I particularly like the sellers page for what I'm trying to do. The part where I find the app falls short is the manual creation of inventory items, it's a bit clumsy and I think there should be a greater emphasis on making the guest-sellers items fit into the host MVM shop instead what it seems like a pararllel inventory organization, for example I think it would make more sense to be able to use "product types" and "product tags" from the host store (MVM) instead of having to enter new ones in MVM.
I would like to point out there customer service is very responsive, they should get credit for that.
Hi, I think there is some confusion as everything is listed clearly in the app description. The support team is in touch with you.
Looking forward to help you.
Du und deine Maske
The Plug in seems to be very mighty but not flexible regarding the implementation into themes. I am searching for liquid snippets to integrate seller infos seemlessly in my own seller page templates. I can use only 4 seller page templates and they aren't very appealing and they don't fit in my theme at all.
To be honest I expected more control over the design. Because Shops look very differently these days. Hopefully we will find a way to integrate everything to our needs.
Maybe everything is customizable but then you urgently need to update your documentation for theme developers.
Hi, Thank you for the message.
In the app, we do have provided the merchant full control over the design of the seller profile page, with the option of editing the code for the page. So, you have almost full control over the seller profile page.
In case you need any help, then please do respond to the support team emails and they will assist you with the same.
This app has true potential however there's still several outstanding items that make it not perfect. Then, when you try to figure out these issues and reach out to support you are responded to with a boilerplate response that links to an article that you've already read and didn't help. Support needs some real improvement before this app can work for larger stores like ours.
I used the app for a day before it became too frustrating, The tabs didn`t work properly and I couldn`t access many parts of the dashboard. The app itself looks wonderful, but the functionality isn`t smooth, and imo needs work. I will come back and check again in 3 months, but at this juncture too pricey given the risk.
Hi, Thank you for the review. We express our most sincere concern in knowing about the issues, so that we can assist you accordingly, as there has been no such issues reported in the app and neither occurred while testing the app. So, it would be really great if you could let us know the same, as the support team is trying to be in touch.
And the App pricing starts from 10$ USD per month, and in this you get ample features, with unlimited sellers and unlimited products added via the app. And you even get free support for the app installation and after installation support too.
Please get in touch with the support team so that we can help you in every possible way.
Thanks & Regards,
Awaiting response ..before making a testimony
I'm re-evaluating this APP. Comparing to what Marketplace BOLD offered. The past week was pretty rough but after my recent complains on the review Multi Vendor Marketplace send a more professional staff "Pratik Kumar" and he solved most of the issue in less than 30mins.
Comparing APP.. I like to use Shopify because in the long run for a staff like me.. Even company decided to fire you.. The company still under your partnership referral.
Multi Vendor plenty of features and functions but the company is all based about profits. Even to get a client website to look standardized or sync with theme will have to pay the extra customizing charges. Which are adding a few CSS and creating DIV. Add to that we are paying you monthly fee for using your APP. When i can go to https://multimerch.com/pricing/ and pay a fix amount for a cheaper cost.
Before you can even market your APP you're trying to rob your clients.. Good idea for marketing.. No wonder too many APP company out there never make it. Shopify is not some Envato, WP or Opencart platform.
Shopify is for you earn as a APP building for long term. Monthly getting paid consistantly. Not a one time off fee and it's over. Do you think charging your clients just to get the client page to sync with the theme is adviceable? This is where you lose out.. I rather go Multimerc or Marketplace since they do everything for me to even help me with sync the theme together. Why? Because they want me to be their client for many years to come.
Really the best app! Would love to see less request and quicker response so won't slow down our site. Currently, it is the slowest app on our website. :(
Some miscommunication at the beginning but now I am receiving good support from Nitika.
