If you are not familiar with shopster.com, or Doba.com, these sites sell online shopping cart systems for members who wish to track the products they wish to sell to customers from drop shipping suppliers. Drop shipping allows these vendors to eliminate the need to store inventory. The products are then marketed and sold across various channels. It is a wonderful business model to use in order to create an e-commerce platform. They allow drop shippers and store owners together. Drop shippers can sell items through a number of store fronts. Resellers can create online stores and select products to sell from the catalog of drop shippers. Sellers get commission for selling items. Drop shippers get a number of storefronts to sell their items and hence increased sales. Shopster and Doba gets money from BOTH.
If you want to create a store front or you want to locate few sellers to sell items Shopster is great place. But if you want create a market place just like shopster talk to iScripts. We have created a new version of iScripts MultiCart with multiple vendor, multiple seller support. It’s not yet publicly available. But if you have cool business idea similar to this send me an email, I will send you a live demo. No, we were not trying to create a Shopster clone script. Since Shopster does something similar it’s easier to explain that way. We were trying to create a distributed shopping cart solution with multiple vendor, multiple reseller capability. As usual we can customize this based on your input. If you are looking for a Doba Clone script, you can use iScripts Multicart Enterprise.
