Was this information Helpful?

Hello

I would like to build a multi-seller marketplace. I am considering using drupal and ubercart, but not sure it this will work. I tried to understand if drupal had a multi-seller e-commerce module but could not understand if it does, or not. There are several pages with info about that but could not understand if there is actually an e-commerce multi-seller module.
I got to ubercart because in several pages I saw ubercart mentioned.

The most important feature is that sellers must be able to import (and preferably update) their products to the marketplace via some sort of web service.

If anyone can guide me to the best way to accomplish this, I would appreciate.

Thank you

Re: multi-seller marketplace

There is an Ubercart Market Place module http://drupal.org/project/ubercart_marketplace which currently is for UC2 and is being ported to UC3 by Wondex. http://drupal.org/sandbox/wodenx/1586350 and http://drupal.org/node/1008204

Re: meanings....

Ubercart 2 and Ubercart 3 Uberrcart 3 is for Drupla 7 only. If you want to use the current MP module you'll have to use Drupal 6 and Ubercart 2 or wait till its ported by Wondex to Ubercart 3

drupal 6 or 7, and quote

Can you tell me if there is any significant advantage in waiting for UC3?
Also, can you tell me how many hours, in average, would take for a developer to create the drupal site, installed with the marketplace module, and then create the XML specifications that would allow sellers to export their listings to that format, in order to be imported by the site?

Thx
