I would like to set up an online multi-vendor marketplace for Malaysia market. There are a few questions that I would like to ask about your platform.
1) If I started off with the most basic plan, can I upgrade to another plan in the future?
2) If that marketplace that I set up does't go well, can I cancel this anytime?
3) Does this support discount/promo code?
4) Is this open source? If I would like to hire my own developers in the future to manage my site, can we develop based on your platform?
5) What if I would like to set up more than one website (marketplace)? Do I have to purchase again for all the other websites? If yes, is there a better rate for this purpose?
6) Whenever there is an update to the platform, can it update automatically and are all the updates free?
7) If I would like to set up an affiliate program, can I do it on this?
8) Instead of just filtering all the products by their types, can I also create an option for people to filter those products based on location and vendor?
9) Since my market is focus on Malaysia, can your payment gateway support payment for Malaysia? Meaning that they can have the option use their credit card, paypal and online bank transfer? If no, then can I integrate my prefered payment gateway?
10) Can I use this platform to create a classified website (eg: http://www.carlist.my/
)? Instead of charging my vendors based on commission, can I charge them based on the posting/advertising fee?
Thanks in advance.
