Workflow of Magento Marketplace extension
The Magento Marketplace is a multiple vendor extension. A vendor can easily create and manage their own account on the mobile friendly website. Vendors can easily add and manage their own products within the Marketplace.
Your Marketplace website will organically attract customers who will search and buy products. Sales will instantly be transferred to the Marketplace system and will add the money to the vendors account as credit. Vendors can then withdraw the money from their credit account and can access the money through banks or paypal at any time.
Vendors can manage orders, create shipments and ship products to customers all from a very easy to use management interface.
Customer can leave reviews/ratings for Vendors every time an order is placed, allowing for a very safe shopping experience for all.
Marketplace owner can create multiple commission rules to charge vendors. In example marketplace owner charge 5% per order for marketplace commission and fixed $2 for each order for transaction fee (e.g. paypal fee)

There are three modes of the marketplace extension:
1. General: In this mode all products in shopping cart from vendors will be processed together to one order. Vendors can only see specific information about the order. Vendors cannot see products of other vendors from their order.
