    Hi there, hope your are doing well.
    I am a new user of Odoo Enterprise.
    My questions is about software requirements of “Odoo Market place”. Will we need Odoo sh? Do I need pay for hosting or another additional services?
    • Anisha Bahukhandi
      Hello Paul,
      Regarding your question of the requirement for Odoo.sh; you need to purchase it from Odoo only when your hosting is from Odoo that is Odoo Online(saas). If you are hosting your Odoo Enterprise with the help of any third party hosting provider like (Google Cloud, AWS, etc) then you don’t need to purchase Odoo.sh tool; all you need to do is pay as per the plan of the hosting provider. Hence, your requirements for using our module Odoo Marketplace completely depends on the type of services you are using. You can drop us a mail at support@webkul.com so that our technical support team can help you in the best possible way.

      I hope I was able to answer your query; feel free to ask!

      Regards
