Payment gateways supported by MultiMerch
Since MultiMerch balance system is built on top of OpenCart's order system, it makes it possible to use any of the 100+ OpenCart default or third party payment gateways to process customer orders in your MultiMerch multi vendor marketplace.
There are three different types of payments that can happen within MultiMerch:
- Order payments from customers. This is the type of payment that happens when the customer completes the order. In this case, customer's payment is transferred to marketplace owner's account who then performs payouts to vendors.
- Listing & signup fee payments from vendors. If listing or signup fees are enabled, the vendor has to make a payment to the marketplace owner when listing a product or applying for a vendor account.
- Payouts to vendors. The marketplace owner performs payouts to vendors based on their current balance. This can either happen automatically or manually depending on your requirements.
At the moment you can use any of OpenCart payment gateways for order payments and PayPal or manual bank transfers for fee payments and payouts.
