Can the new Magento 2 be able to implement these features easily ?? especially the multiple shops for each shopkeeper ? or a lot of customization will have to be done ?


The inital Magento 2.0 release will probably not be suited better for multiple vendors than Magento 1 because there are no big changes planned for the first release. It's too early to tell whether there will be improvements later on.

Magento 2 should be improved in terms of scalability but it would probably take a big refinement like the uDropship extension from Unirgy for M1 to make M2 really capable of being a market place where many hundreds or thousands of shop owners can sell their products in one place.

In Magento 1, the Enterprise Edition allows you to create separate admins for each website which could kind of help the separation of stores.

Disclaimer: I'm not related to Unirgy and never have used the extension but I heard that many shops are using it.

  • i think i wont wait for magento 2 ..will go ahead with magento 1 and once 2 is stable probably within within one and a half years from today will deploy magento2 and my extension would probably be upgraded thereafter – shadowz Feb 15 '15 at 13:47

Magento 2 will basically have the same features as Magento 1. With a few extra's.

The functionalities you are discribing are pretty broad and it's hard to give a good answer on that. But I don't expect Magento 2 to support your whole case.

  • So i think im just going to deploy magento 1.8 rather than wait upto next year and still the system is unsure if it would have a stable release + plus addons would still need to keep up with the changes !! what do u think ? – shadowz Feb 15 '15 at 13:46

    @CosmiBli Magento is already at 1.9.1. I advice you to use that version. But sounds like a good plan! – Sander Mangel Feb 16 '15 at 8:42
