Multi-Vendor Against the World


As you can see the choice is big and it is up to you to select your best platform with Multi-Vendor Functionality. The only thing that can be noted while making your choice pay attention to built-in multi-vendor functionality not an extension for more security and better speed (presence of many plugins can slow down your website and it is not safe).
