WC Marketplace


WCMp: Welcome, this is Riley, your WCMp virtual guide. I’m here to help you know better about WC Marketplace as plugin and as organization. In it’s core, WCMp is a WooCommerce based multi vendor solution engineered to address all your marketplace needs. Try and fall in love with WCMp, yes it’s that simple ☺

WC Marketplace 3.0 is a significantly major update and hence please follow some standard steps before upgrading your marketplace to avoid any undesirable situations.

You: [In your mind – “Ahem. Really?”] All plugin makers say that. What makes you different from others?

Riley: I can understand your doubt, but users’ reviews are here to back our statement. If you go with the stat, more than 96% users rated us 5/5.

You: Now that’s an impressive figure!

Riley: Thanks. WCMp is not just “another plugin”. It’s a rock-solid product backed with super-duper support. And the best part, its Free!

You: So that’s what everybody says initially. And then they offer “Pro” or “Premium” version when you look for obvious features. Riley, I have seen enough of these free traps before!

Riley: Well, we don’t have any “pro” or “premium” versions of our marketplace plugin. WCMp is free and always will be.

You: [ In disbelief ] It is free and yet “useful”, that’s what you are selling me!

Riley: Don’t take my word for it, checkout our exhaustive, have-it-all feature list. You will be surprised to find out what other multivendor plugins offer in pro or premium, WC Marketplace has all of them covered.

Take a step forward and try our demo.

You: [In your mind- “There should be a catch or a hidden cost. Let me dig more.” ] Well your plugin looks promising. But, I wonder, why this charity?

Riley: No question of charity. We provide paid customization services for marketplace owners to meet their specific business goals. Also, we have categorized our bouquet of features under necessity and extras. So if marketplaces need these nice-to-have extras, we have add-ons for them. But you will always have your fully functional multi vendor store with or without them. Check out our add-ons.

You: [Got ya!] So, you have just tweaked the game in your favor. Others offer “pro” and you have your own bagful of paid “add-ons”. Right?

Riley: Nope. These add-ons are completely optional and some of them are even free. We keep these features outside of core plugin to make marketplace owner’s life simple, without overloading them with unnecessary features/settings. If you don’t need them why bother.

Our most popular addons

You: [Still sceptical] But, pro version is not just about features. They also include friendly support, prompt reply, and quick resolution. What about that?

Riley: On business days, we provide 12 hour turnaround time to reply every query, even in our busiest schedule. All you need to do is to reach us either via our support forum, WordPress.org or Github.

You: Bravo!!! My expectations are reaching new heights. Are you sure you can meet them?

Riley: Be assured, we will be there for you. A smile, a few kind words that’s what keep us going.

You: Riley, it was a great conversation. Thanks for your time!

Riley: Same here. Have a nice day.

Quite a few misses

Not a fan of the vendor registration form. It sends confirmation email after registering for store as simply registering for the site with not enough detail. The email link goes to the regular buyer account , not the store. Store registration form submit gives no confirmation on the pg. Front vendor dashboard has some css issues. Not a fan of the diagonal store name. Can’t edit store name or slug. I don’t like default text in the store’s description. The shipping setting is not friendly at all for vendors, I would have to use another shipping plugin and hide that menu. This definitely needs a theme but none which are compatible shows the vendors pg in a demo so I guess it’s the same block. I find the store pg description box ugly. The store banner doesn’t display right.

Great support for a good product

Though there are still features that’d be nice to come as standard, this is a great product with a lot of potential. The support are quick and helpful, and with a small bit of tweaking you should be able to get your marketplace just how you want it

Super team and super service.

Buying the WC Marketplace software was made easy by my contact Moumita how helped me perfectly. The team setup the Marketplace and when i needed help with the Stripe integration they again help me with this. I can recommend WCMP as a partner for you marketplace. Thanks WCMP.

5 stars

Just wanted to take the time out to say this support teams deserves all 5 stars! Every email I sent is responded same day or even the next hour or so! I really appreciate the support and how professional you all are! I hope this review reaches the world because my experience with you all is the best! Thank you!
