SPLIT CART: Multivendor Marketplace for Shopify

Updated 22 March 2023

 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.
