  • Paul
    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 (Moderator)
      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 [email protected] 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!

  • Julio
    I see the problem, the demo it’s only available in Odoo 12 version, not in 13 version.

    Thank’s.

  • Julio
    Good afternoon.

    I enter but I don’t see the module anywhere?

    It’s a demo but it is from Odoo as such, it is not from the module which is what interests me.

    • Anisha Bahukhandi (Moderator)
      Hello Julio,

      The module creates a marketplace environment in Odoo. Hence, you can offer multiple vendors to register to your marketplace portal so that they can sell their products on your Online Store with the help of the module. I have shared the demo link to you in the previous comment.
      However, if you are looking for something else then kindly elaborate your query to our support team at [email protected].

      Regards

  • Aubrey John Roberts
    One big piece is missing in your document is, actual “Marketplace”. I see how a seller is setup, admin role, and individual sellers “shop”. But where is the “Marketplace” example or screen shot?? I have seen your demo but same question applies. If you give me a demo of blank dataset, in order for me evaluate the product, I have spent a lot of time to see the actual impact and possibilities of the “Marketplace”. Can you help?
    • Anisha Bahukhandi (Moderator)
      Hello Aubrey John Roberts,
      Marketplace is a type of e-commerce site where multiple sellers can sell their products at one place. The marketplace owner doesn’t require to own products as the products on the marketplace directly comes from the third-party sellers.
      I have also checked the demo and it has all the data set.
      If you still have any doubt then drop a mail at [email protected] and raise a ticket.

    Hello, in the case of Odoo Enterprise, the sellers who register in eCommerce, will consume license?
    • Khushboo (Moderator)
      In Enterprise the sellers who register in eCommerce will not be considered as an internal user.
      • Theis
        Hi

        does this mean, that if I purchase ODOO.sh entreprise and having 1000 sellers I will only require my own internal license.

        • Anisha Bahukhandi (Moderator)
          Hello Theis,

          If you have 1000 sellers, you do not need 1000 user licenses from ODOO. As currently, Odoo Marketplace sellers are not counted as users but in future, if Odoo applies some check to count seller as a user then you would have to pay for that.

          Regards
          Anisha Bahukhandi

  • Alan
    Hi, is there any limit of concurrent visitors? what about the response speed?
    could rating & reviews on product instead of shop?
    • Khushboo (Moderator)
      There is no limit on concurrent visitors. If you are planning to add a large number of users to your site then you need to Manage the server and optimize your site accordingly.
      By default we can add seller review and rating in the marketplace, if you need to add product review then it can be achieved by customization. you can refer to our default website product review modules https://store.webkul.com/Odoo-Product-Review.html and Odoo Website Product Review After Purchase.
      For further assistance please raise a ticket at [email protected]
  • Saleema
    Hi. Does odoo marketplace have a certain limit of vendors? I need to have 20,000 plus vendors using this. Can this be possible?
    • Prakreti Pandey (Moderator)
      By default, we have not restricted our modules for 20000 vendors.

      But you need to check the performance of the site if you are planning to add 20000+ vendors.

      Hence if you are planning to add this number of users to your site then you need to Manage the server and optimize your site accordingly.
