    • gunjita joshi
      Hello there,

      Thanks for the query. Multi-Vendor Hyperlocal Marketplace Plugin for WooCommerce can be used for multiple sites but this plugin would not support third-party multi vendors plugins.

      Meanwhile, it will work with Multi-Vendor Marketplace for WooCommerce.

      For any other query, please get back to us at support@webkul.com.

      Thanks and Regards.
