Hi, Martin here.

The new Alpha2 version of MultiMerch 8 for OpenCart 2.2 is now available for testing and pre-order!

MultiMerch 8 is a major upgrade combining MultiMerch Core and MultiMerch Premium functionalities. These are some of the new features that are available in Alpha2:

  • OpenCart 2.2 support
  • Updated vendor dashboard and product listing
  • Updated layout designs
  • Updated customer account pages and menus
  • Support for Google Analytics for vendors
  • Support for Disqus Comments for vendors and products
  • HTML email templates
  • Various smaller updates

These are the features that are still in progress and will become available in MultiMerch 8.0 or 8.1 Stable (within the next few weeks):

  • Improved vendor balance and product returns
  • Vendor ratings
  • Custom payment methods
  • Custom shipping methods (MM Shipping rewrite)
  • Improved SEO system
  • Third party theme integrations

Here is a small preview of the Alpha2 updates running the default OpenCart 2.2 theme:

MultiMerch Premium (Complete Package) users who purchased MultiMerch after January 1, 2016 will receive the new MultiMerch 8 automatically in their MultiMerch accounts.

Those who purchased MultiMerch before this date are eligible for an upgrade discount should you decide to switch to MultiMerch 8. In this case, please contact us at

All MultiMerch 7 updates are still free of charge and a stability update (7.7.5) should be available in your accounts shortly.

MultiMerch Core will not be available as a separate version starting with MultiMerch 8. Therefore, existing Core users will need to upgrade to one of the paid plans (Developer, Store Owner or Business) to switch to MultiMerch 8. Please contact us for more information and MM8 upgrade discounts available to Core users.

Note that MultiMerch 8 is still in Alpha stage and is to be tested on a clean OpenCart 2.2 setup.
