Question for Multi-Vendor version Rate Topic   - - - - -

Hi, I have some questions for multi-vendor version:

1. It says $590 per year, so what happen at the end of first year, if I dont renew, I can't use the cart on my own hosting server?

2. Since you charge $590 per year, How often do you make improvements, so I can upgrade to the new version.

3. If I dont submit many ticket(you have 100 tickets allowed right, if I just use like 10), can I request for free upgrade service, since I didn't used up all the tickets allowed.

4. I see in vendor version, the commission setting, it has to be set for each individual vendor. Is there a GROUP feature where I can set, and then apply the vendor to each group? This will make it easier for any future commission rate change.

5. Most importantly, is it OPEN SOURCE? am I allowed to make any additional development? I'm reselling this to my client, I do not want them know about CS-CART, can I remove the cs-cart related info?

6. Any way to let vendor use their own payment gateway? such as their own PAYPAL, Authorize.net account?

Thanks so much, that's all for now. looking forward for the answers.

1. According to the Multi-Vendor agreement :
"The User shall:
upon expiration of the period provided by the Subscription License, purchase the Full License or purchase the Subscription License repeatedly on the Official Website of the Company or from the Reseller or stop the Use of the Program with removing it both from the Licensed Domain Name and from other media, if any."

Thus, subscription is given for one year only and it should be purchased again after a year.

Official CS-Cart resellers offer CS-Cart Multi-Vendor on more comfortable conditions (it is a CS-Cart reseller policy). For example, our company offers CS-Cart Multi-Vendor life-time license for $1250 http://www.alt-team....ultivendor.html You buy it once and use forever.

2. CS-Cart usually grants one year of free upgrades but now I don't see this condition in the Multi-Vendor agreement, So, it's better to ask CS-Cart. On avarage, there can happen two upgrades during a year.

3. Not sure about this.

4. As far as I can see the commission has to be set for each individual vendor.

5. Yes it is open source and it's possible to delete the CS-Cart related info.

6. By default vendors can't use their own payment gateways. Moreover, all payments go to the account of a root administrator who then distributes funds among the vendors according to the history of orders.

Hello Guest_ask-cs_*,

as I see Alt-team has already answered your questions and now I would like to provide some additional information.

1. Once the subscription period (1 year) is over, it will be required either to purchase another 1-year subscription plan or remove the software and all its copies. A user will be granted with full access to updates and new versions of Multi-Vendor within a subscription period at no additional cost. Also, each additional upgrade subscription purchased for the Multi-Vendor license includes 100 free technical support credits.

We allow our resellers to sell Multi-Vendor lifetime licenses. Also you can get more details about such kind of license directly from CS-Cart team at sales@cs-cart.com

2. New CS-Cart version (minor or major) is released approximately once in about three months.

3. The provision of the upgrade does not depend on the number of tickets you submit. The installation can be upgraded to a new version in case the license has access to the upgrades.

4. Commissions are set for each vendor separately.

5. Once you have a registered license, you will be able to remove any CS-Cart mentions from the store including the "Powered by CS-Cart" text and replace it with your own name and logos.

The only thing you must keep unchanged is copyright notices inside PHP source files. They do not affect the outlook anyhow so you should not concern about it.

Please refer to the following section of our Knowledge Base to learn how to change CS-Cart attributes:


6. I would like to add to the Alt-team's reply that we plan to include a separate checkout per vendor in Multi-Vendor:

Sincerely yours,

Thanks for your reply, I have a question for vendor's selling the same items, On the product page, will there be a MORE OFFERS (14 new) from like amazon website so user can click on the 14 new, and see all other sellings who selling the same product but might have different pricing.

Is this something CS-CART already have? this seems a key feature we need now. please try answer asap, we need to decide on it these two days.
