    As much as I would love to give this a 5 star I can't. THIS IS NOT as they claim.

    First: "100% WordPress Multisite and BuddyPress compatible"
    Of course it is. You MUST have Multisite enabled if you want users to sell products.
    Second: "you can use it to start your own Etsy or Ebay style network of stores... where you take a % on each sale!!!"

    This is NOT even close to Esty or Ebay.
    With users to be able to sell products they must have their OWN store/multisite which in turn is not what Esty or Ebay is. On ebay I register, login , upload my product, done! With Marketpress I have to register, login, set up a store, configure a website basically and then I am able to sell my products and when changes to the main site are done it has no effect on the users Multisite. If I change the logo or menu items for example on the main site, it does not change on the Multisite because those Multisites are just that, a separate site from the main site that must be configured on a user basis.
    So basically what this is, is a plugin requires for Multisite enabled for a user to have a store within your domain but is not actually part of your own store. It its is NOT a plugin to be used if all you want is a user to be able to sell products on the main site like Ebay or Esty.
    Sorry, but the description ruined this for me and has caused me days of frustration. I will note, support has been great! They have attempted to help me but to no avail.
    This would be a great product for those who do want Multisites but worthless for those who don't that and only want users to be able to sell products on your site alone.

    Thank you for your review! You saved me a lot of headache, as I was looking for the same thing - I want my buddypress users to be able to create and sell their products on my website, without creating their own websites/stores. Have you found a plugin that has this functionality? I've been looking around, but I'm not seeing anything. Any suggestions?
