Entering the world of eCommerce can feel like a big step. One way to make it easier is to share audiences and costs with other like-minded businesses.
This setup — known as a multi-vendor marketplace — creates a shared storefront for multiple sellers on a single website. Each seller in the community can create, edit, and control their own products. Shoppers can add any combination of items to their carts and make all their purchases as part of one checkout.
It’s a great way for a small business to get a little extra help when starting out, or for existing stores to expand their markets.
Multi-vendor means community for both sellers and customers
The biggest plus of a multi-vendor marketplace is the kinship with other entrepreneurs. The shops you partner with become part of your inner circle. They can answer questions and provide support as you navigate sales and growth challenges — and you can pass your expertise on to the next generation of entrepreneurs.
Sharing one storefront means you’re sharing customers, too. You’re building a wider brand by pulling together sellers with common ideals and target audiences. Partner with vendors who sell items your own customers would love — and whose customers would love your products, too.
And with everyone coming together under one unified brand, your customers can create their own community. Your website and supporting social media feeds become places where shoppers with common interests gather, and where you can engage with and learn about them.
Multi-vendor benefits for marketplace owners
If you own and manage a WooCommerce site, there are several direct benefits to becoming a multi-vendor operation:
An additional income stream. When you invite new vendors into your marketplace, you can take commission on each of their sales. Establish a standard commission rate across the site, or offer sellers different rates tied to criteria like number of products and established audience. Be upfront about your transaction fees, and then let their sales contribute to your overall site maintenance costs.
An expanded audience. As new sellers join your platform, they bring new sets of customers. Ideally, you’ll choose vendors that all sell complementary products. If you want to create a home chef theme, target merchants who all sell kitchenware and gadgets, but not the same items. Perhaps some sell towels, some custom knives, and others rolling pins or bakeware. Each vendor uses their own social media accounts, word-of-mouth contacts, and established customer base to bring more visitors to your marketplace. The more vendors, the more customers for everyone.
Full control over members. As the marketplace owner, you’re in control of what’s displayed on your site. When new vendors apply to join, you can accept only those that fit the overall brand you’re building. Accepted vendors can create their own products in the WooCommerce dashboard, but you maintain quality control and only items you approve go live on the site.
Automated payouts. Worried about calculating complicated payments for each seller? Don’t be. Use the WooCommerce Product Vendors extension to set up automatic payments through PayPal on whatever schedule you’d like. Hold payouts until orders are actually complete and any return periods have expired, and automatically pay vendors per sale, bi-weekly, or monthly.
Shared responsibility. Spread the responsibility of running and maintaining the site by designating administrative users who have control over the shop. Your new team of admins will be able to approve vendors and products, deal with password issues, and manage featured products on your behalf while you stick to the stuff you love: creating and selling your own items.
Multi-vendor benefits for sellers
A multi-vendor site is good for merchants, too. They’ll benefit from instant access to a shared audience and won’t have to incur the expense or effort to build a shop from scratch. But this doesn’t mean they’re limited. When they join your marketplace, they’ll be able to:
Create their own products and control their own inventory. Vendors have limited access to the WordPress dashboard to create products, upload images, set prices, and describe their creations in the most accurate way. Vendors also have the power to control their own inventory numbers, so availability is accurate and instantly updated for visiting customers.
Set their own shipping rates. Vendors can set shipping rates for products, so they aren’t tied into a strict pricing structure for items that are bulky, heavy, or require extra postage.
Add customer notes. Order confirmation emails can include vendor notes, so sellers can speak directly to their customers. Emails can include delivery details, instructions, or required disclaimers — in their own words, and without full administrative access.
Get individual sales reports. Vendors can see their own sales numbers and customer information, in an easy-to-read format, in the WooCommerce dashboard. They can use their data to make sure that they’re listing the right products in the right places, and to drive their own marketing campaigns.
Sell anything. With WooCommerce, vendors can sell physical items, digital downloads, or both. With extensions, you can offer even more options. One popular choice: WooCommerce Bookings, which allows your vendors to sell consultations and appointments.
Renew your Product Vendors subscription annually to access security upgrades, new features, and priority assistance.
With these few simple pieces in place, you’re ready to get selling — and ready to start community building. As a marketplace owner, your individual income will grow and your reputation as a business owner that builds connections will grow, too.

Accepting payments from customers isn’t as easy as flipping a switch and watching the money flow in, but it doesn’t have to be complicated, either. You just need to find the right WooCommerce payment gateway for your business.
With the right payment gateway, you can make it easy for customers to purchase your products. Choosing the right fit takes time, but we’ve found a few ways to narrow down your options and make the process effortless.
Let’s explore how to find the right solution so you can focus on what matters: launching your new store.
Want to add additional gateways to your store? Browse all payment gateway extensions available on the official WooCommerce.com marketplace.
How payment gateways work
If you’re reading this post, you probably know you need a gateway, but may not really understand why or how they function.
Let’s break it down. First, a payment gateway is an application that allows a store to securely request payments from customers. When a customer clicks “order,” it handles all of the next steps.
Verifies each customer’s billing information.
Authenticates funds for each customer’s payment method.
Approves requests, allowing your store to issue a confirmation number.
Most importantly, gets you paid!
Now that you have a better idea of the “why,” let’s look at how to find the right gateway for your store.
Your first choice: modern or classic
All gateways used to require store owners to apply for a merchant account — a special bank account that allowed direct receipt of credit card payments. Unless you had a merchant account, there was no way for the payment gateway to transmit money to your bank.
There are now plenty of payment gateways that don’t require a merchant account at all. They draw funds directly from customers’ bank or credit cards, validate them, and then deposit them into your account.
To make things clear, let’s call the payment gateways that require a merchant account “classic” gateways, and those that don’t “modern” ones.
Modern payment gateways: easy setup, but higher fees
A few examples of “modern” payment gateways — those that don’t require a merchant account — are PayPal and Stripe.
The biggest perk of these gateways is that, in most cases, you won’t need to change bank accounts or really do anything special to get started. In addition, integrating these gateways with your store is usually a quick process.
However, there are two downsides:
Modern payment gateways usually charge larger per-transaction fees than classic gateways. For smaller stores, these fees are often not a big deal, but as you grow and process more transactions, they can add up.
Some modern gateways send customers off-site to make a payment, which may reduce conversions.
Classic payment gateways: more hassle, but better for bigger stores
Compared to modern options, classic payment gateways can be a bit of a hassle. Not only do they take longer to set up and require some technical knowledge, they also require a merchant account.
If you opt for a classic payment gateway, you’ll need to find a bank that offers merchant accounts and apply for one. Because they aren’t offered by all banks and the approval time varies by organization, this can add as much as four to six weeks to the setup process.
However, as mentioned above, per-transaction fees for classic gateways are often lower than modern ones. So it’s worth considering how much you’ll pay in the long run, and if a little hassle is worth more than the gateway fees.
Consider the benefits of hosted vs. integrated gateways
Much like eCommerce platforms, which have hosted and self-hosted options, payment gateways can be hosted off-site or integrated into your store. As you probably have guessed, there are advantages and disadvantages to both options.
Hosted payment gateways
Hosted gateways redirect your customers to the payment processor’s platform to input payment information. The biggest perk of this setup is that the offsite provider is responsible for all PCI compliance and data security. This is one less thing for you to worry about, and major hosted processors will have information on their compliance and security methods if you need it.
There are some potential downsides, however. In some countries, offsite payment processors aren’t trusted; in others, they’re actually preferred. So you’ll need to know how your audience feels about a hosted gateway before choosing one.
The bottom line: hosted gateways are easy to set up and are fantastic for new stores, but can potentially hurt conversion rates if customers aren’t familiar with the processor.
Integrated payment gateways
An integrated payment gateway connects to your eCommerce website via the gateway’s API. The biggest advantage of this is that customers never have to leave your store to input payment information and submit orders — it’s a smooth, seamless experience.
Of course, the downside is that you’ll need to integrate with the gateway you choose. WooCommerce supports dozens of payment gateways, so your chosen option will most likely integrate seamlessly. But if you choose one that isn’t supported “out of the box,” you might have to do some custom programming to get it functioning properly.
Integration also makes you responsible for complying with your country’s rules and regulations, including the PCI Security Standards. A lack of security could put your customers at risk, or subject your store to an audit.
The bottom line: gateways integrated via API offer a seamless ordering process, but can be more difficult and time-consuming to set up, and will add more responsibility to your plate.
Narrow down your options: start by considering pricing
At this point, you should have a good feel for what type of gateway you’d prefer, whether it’s modern or classic, integrated or hosted. Now you can start narrowing down your options, starting with price.
Nearly all payment gateways charge fees, usually per-transaction fees or monthly usage charges. The gateways you evaluate may charge one or both, or may even scale their fees depending on how much you use them.
A three percent per-transaction fee might not sound like much, but could add up if you’re selling luxury goods or large volumes.
Planning recurring payments? Look for automatic billing support
If your business will be offering subscriptions or memberships, make sure that the gateways you’re considering support recurring payments. If they don’t, your customers will need to renew manually each month, which can be a huge pain.
Note that the gateways are also marked to indicate if they allow changes to payment dates and amounts without canceling and restarting the subscription, which can be helpful for stores planning to offer multiple subscription or membership tiers.
Review the purchasing process in full detail
As you continue to narrow down your choices, try to be conscious of how each gateway will appear on your store and what kind of experience it will offer your customers.
Think about the number of steps a shopper will have to take to get from their cart to a confirmation screen. If you’re asking too much of them, they might abandon their purchase.
Most payment gateway providers either have a demo on their website or will be happy to show you a demo if you ask. This is a good way to get an idea of how the process will actually function on a store like yours, what screens customers will see, and what information will be requested.
Integrated gateways often offer more flexibility than hosted ones, since you can opt for a one-page checkout or multi-page checkout, style form fields as you prefer, and more — essentially eliminating any potential barriers to purchase.
Don’t be afraid to just get started
When starting a new store, you may not want to spend a lot of time or money on setting up a payment gateway. And that’s perfectly fine.
WooCommerce Payments is a great place to start — it’s simple, reliable, and secure, but can also grow alongside your business. It’s completely free to install and set up and only charges 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction.
Because it’s an integrated gateway, your customers will pay directly on your site and experience a seamless checkout process, but you can also rest easy knowing that their payment information is protected.
The best part? You can manage everything from the same dashboard that you’re already familiar with. View payments, track cash flow, issue refunds, and more directly on your site.
Accepting payments is a critical step
Adding a payment gateway to your store is a crucial part of the pre-launch process. Once you’re ready to accept payments, you can go full speed ahead knowing that you chose the right gateway for your needs.
