I have to implement in Magento CE 1.9 a system for managing our reseller network.

In short, this is the scenario:

  • reseller can sell our products using our shop frontend, providing
    to their customers the link of their landing page (ex.
    www.shop.com/reseller-name).
  • The Reseller's landing pages are graphically customized, offering
    the main product catalog (or a selection). There is no possibility by the resellers to upload/choose their products.
  • Product's prices and features, along resellers commissions, are
    defined by the Admin. Admin can define global values or different values for each resellers.
  • Resellers earn their commission only when a product is added to
    cart from their landing page/catalog.
  • About Payment: money are sent to the Admin, that will pay later the commission to their resellers.
  • About Shipping: the Admin ship the goods to the resellers, no need
    to implement a different way to manage the shipment.
  • Reseller have a personal backend/dashboard in order to monitoring
    their orders, commissions, customer's addresses, ecc.

The are some great Magento extensions that permit to obtain a Multivendor Market Place (ex. https://www.apptha.com/magento/marketplace or https://secure.unirgy.com/products/umarketplace/magento-multi-vendor-marketplace) but they are more powerful than my needs, above all permitting users to create their own shop on your platform, uploading their own products.

I have not yet found any extensions that permit to obtain the described goals, and customizing any Multivendor Market place extension is expensive and finally not an "elegant" solutions.

I also think that using the native Magento multi-store functionalities will lead to a painfull resellers management: I will have to manage a great number of resellers and I need to automatize as much as possible the Sign-Up/selling flow by the resellers.

Do you have any good idea? Thank you!

  • I also think that using the native Magento multi-store functionalities will lead to a painfull resellers management you're right about that one. I'm not sure Magento CE is the right solution for that. Don't know about EE though. – Julien Lachal Jun 29 '16 at 16:01
  • Thank you Julien for your reply. Indeed the multi-store functionalities would be a good choiche only where you need to manage very few Resellers and products (ex. less than 4 Resellers and less than 10 products.) – Jason Dinalt Jul 8 '16 at 10:04

Careful evaluations have led us to think that considering ReSellers as a sort of Sales Agent should bring to an easier solutions implementation, for example using an extension like this: https://www.cminds.com/ecommerce-extensions-store/sales-rep-commission-manager-extension-for-magento

An alternative way would be to implement an Affiliate Program that permit your Resellers to link/show your product on their websites, using an extension like this: https://www.magestore.com/affiliateplus/

The market seems lacking a pure Magento ReSeller Extension, so the third way seems to create an extension from scratch!
