In Topic: Please explain MultiVendor payout process

10 January 2017 - 11:52 PM

Hey everyone,

I recently purchased the CS Cart MultiVendor license and I'm in the process of setting up my website. I have read a couple of older threads about automatic vendor payouts, but I'm still confused on what the exact process is. I'd appreciate if you guys can help me clarify.

For example, my website will be made up of many vendors (possibly thousands) each selling multiple items. I will most likely use Paypal Pro as my payment gateway. Ideally, when a customer gets to the checkout cart, they will only have to go through 1 payment process even though they have items from multiple vendors (unlike Etsy). What happens after that? I have read that all the money goes into the Root Administrator's account. Is it then it my job to figure out what the vendor is owed (minus my commission)? If so, I have to transfer that money to them via Paypal Pro? What if they don't have Paypal Pro (don't want to pay $30/month)? Can I deposit directly to their business' bank account?

On the flipside, I've read a thread that referred to a new Automatic Vendor Payout. It sounded like an Etsy-type checkout cart where you have to go through the payment process multiple times (for each separate vendor). With this process the payments go directly to the Vendor's account? If so, how do I collect my commission? Is it my job to keep track of each vendor's sale and hound them for my cut?

Do you think there will ever be a checkout process that combines the best of both options? For example, you have a cart with items from multiple vendors, but you only make one payment. The money is then transferred to each individual vendor's account (minus the commission which is automatically transferred to the root administrator's account). That would be ideal.

I look forward to this discussion. Thanks everyone!!


Hi- Did you end up using paypal? If so has the experience been smooth? I am surprised that this is an issue that doesn't seem to be important to CSCart even though its totally a necessity for MV. This whole figure out as you go experience is insane!

We can discuss. Email me or use contact us on our site. It lacks some finishing touches and needs to be ported to the new vendor profile stuff since the older vendor commissions is now gone.

Ok great I will email you now.  thanks

You've read my mind AlmondJoy and I hope CS will consider this option as a future add-on :grin:
