Thanks to lots of benefits and convenience that a multi-vendor marketplace brings to any eCommerce store, it has developed quickly and become more and more competitive. When your online marketplace expands with significant increase in the number of vendors and customers, the management of orders and products will become more complicated and time-consuming.
Imagine that one customer purchases products from different merchants on your marketplace and only one order ID is created. It will lead to difficulty and confusion for each seller to manage the order and products of his/her store. In addition, the admin will also find it hard to keep track of products and the operation of each vendor in the marketplace.
In the side of customers, they may want to divide their order into different IDs according to different sellers so that it become easier and more convenient for them to set delivery date and method.
