How to Install Opencart Marketplace Module?
Opencart Marketplace Admin Catalog Setting
Opencart Marketplace- General Setting Configuration
Opencart Marketplace- Landing Page Setting

Installation

Installation Process –

Customers will get a zip folder for installing the module. They will unzip this folder on their system and choose the version according to the Opencart version that you want to install.
For example, If the customer wants to install the Opencart Marketplace Version 2.3.x.x, there are four folders inside this folder version 2.3.x.x namely- admin, catalog, ocmod & theme patch. To install this module version, first you need to transfer the admin & catalog folders into the Opencart root folder on the server.

After transferring the folders, use extension installer for uploading the XML files- marketplace1.ocmod.xml, marketplace2.ocmod.xml, and Marketplaceforseo.ocmod.xml which you will find in ocmod folder.

If you are using a custom theme like Journal then we provide Journal theme patch (directory) in the module zip. While installing the module, navigate through Theme Patch->and click on the Journal folder and you will get “Catalog” folder. Just upload the “Catalog” folder into your Opencart Root Directory for the proper functioning of the Module with the Journal Theme.

After transferring the folders, use extension installer to install the XML files which is situated inside the ocmod ->journal2 folder (marketplace1.ocmod.xml, marketplace2.ocmod.xml, and Marketplaceforseo.ocmod.xml).
Similarly, you can also install the Opencart Version 2.2.x.x

Note:
If you are using a custom theme(Like Journal2) then you need to navigate through ocmod folder>Journal2 and select the files present there-marketplace1.ocmod, marketplace2.ocmod, and Marketplaceforseo.ocmd only.

After uploading the file go to the Extensions > Modification and click on refresh field.

After that in Admin panel go to System -> Users -> Usergroup and edit ‘Administrator’ and choose select all for both Access and Modify Permission and save it.

After that under Extension > Module, install the Marketplace module like this way.

Module Translation

As this Marketplace module supports multiple languages so this section will describe how to make the module work in different languages. Please check this link for language translation

Arabic Translation

Step 1: Download the free Arabic language pack from the Opencart extension directory. Any language pack that isn’t English needs to be uploaded to Opencart, after Opencart Installation, using an FTP client like FileZilla.

Step 2: Open the downloaded zip file and unzip it on your system. Now upload the admin and catalog folders into the Opencart root folder on the server.

Step 3: Now login to your Opencart admin panel with your admin credentials. For adding a new language navigate to System->Localization->languages and click on the “Add” button. Here you will see the below-shown page where you will have to fill all the mandatory fields with the language(Arabic) information.

In order to get all language information please check the readme.txt file included in the language pack archive you have downloaded. After entering all the mandatory fields, click the save button to save the language.

Step 4: Now to change the language for the backend panel and the Frontend, navigate to System -> Settings ->Local. Under the local menu tab, set the language(this changes the frontend language) as Arabic and set the administration language(this changes the backend admin panel language) to Arabic.

Step 5: The next major issue is, how to translate a module that is built on the multi-language paradigm. If the module is following language pattern for any module then it must have language files.

If the module has language files for English and you want to translate them into Arabic, then at the very first copy all the language files from English language directory and paste all of them into the Arabic directory in the same structure as it was in the English language.

For example, there is a file in module directory for the English language called foo.php then copy this into the module directory of the Arabic language. Suppose English file has these keywords to be translated as below screenshot.

Without Translation:

With Translation:

After doing above changes, when you’ll change the language from the front end then, the page will be translated into Arabic language only for those keywords that exist in language file only.

    Does the marketplace plugin handle this – If an order contains items of multiple sellers and one of the sellers fulfils (ships) the order – does the shipping confirmation mail contain only his products or all the products?
    • Webkul Support

      Hello Pankaj,

      The above requested feature ( Adding Category on the filter and Product List) is not available in the default module. For you we can develop this feature by customization ( a paid service). Please contact sales@webkul.com for more details about the customization part.

    Do you provide a separate API for this?
    • Nirupama Shree
      Hello Suchith Jinasena,

      As of now, this Marketplace module does not provide APIs. Please let us know for what purpose do you need APIs?

      Thanks & Regards

      • suchith jinasena
        I’m planning to purchase this module and install it in my store. So We are planning to develop a mobile application for our store. So for that we need to have an API.

    through out your run down on the marketplace module, you did not mention if the sellers can be reached by their own unique url, for example http://www.myshop.com/XYZstore or XYZstore.myshop.com

    secondly, i will like to know, if i purchase this marketplace module, can i use it for all my stores (4 in number) or do i have to it 4 times.
    And do i have automatic access to the mobile app or do i have to purchase the app separately

    • Webkul Support
      HI There, Thanks for the contact. At the moment it does not have separate URL domain. Still have any query, Please email at support@webkul.com. Thanks
