Multivendor Marketplace module has come up with a feature app named Split Cart. It helps your buyers to have split carts during the checkout process. This means that when the buyers will add multiple seller’s products to their cart, their cart will get split vendor-wise i.e. each cart will have a separate seller’s products.
Thus, buyers will have different products from various sellers in their cart but only one cart having single seller’s products will be validated at a time during checkout.
With this feature, the admin will have an easily manageable order process and thus, can have the separate orders of each seller’s products.
You can get the Split Cart feature app simply by paying an amount of $14 per month over and above your current multivendor plan.
Admin can enable/disable the Split Cart feature on his/her store.
There will be separate orders for each seller’s products.
Moreover, the admin will have the orders in an organized manner.
Easy to manage orders.
Allow sellers to create discounts for their customers.
You can now use Split Cart+Store Pickup+Minimum Purchase Amount.
Please note that this split process will not work in case of Ajax (Drawer) cart.
