Looking for Multivendor shopping cart in ASP

I am looking for a marketplace solution but in ASP. I have searched online but all multivendor carts are in PHP and I need ASP. I also contacted a few cart providers but they don't offer multivendor feature.

Does anyone know of ASP cart that would offer e.g:
-Online store selling products from multiple sellers.
-Providers/Sellers can register accounts
-Sellers/providers can edit only products belonging to them
-Different providers/sellers can set their own shipping rates for pre-defined shipping methods
-Admin account is separated from provider/seller accounts
-Independent tax settings for providers/sellers

xCart is an example of the solution I am looking for, but it is in PHP.

As usual, any feedback would be great and thank you in advance for your suggestions.

Wish I knew of something to offer. I've had a few requests for this sort of thing over the years but I don't do ASP and haven't had a need to chase one down. Best of luck with it and let us know what you find.

Do you mean classic ASP or ASP.net?
I believe Volusion is in classic asp.

I believe Volusion is in classic asp.


99.9% of Volusion's code is behind a wall now. It used to have a lot of .ASP files you could modify, but with each version since v4 they have removed more and more of the files you could get to.

And, I will warn anyone who thinks they are going to customize a Volusion site, that there is only (1), (yes "one"), template for the entire store -- home page, category pages, product pages, help, checkout, etc.. all share one template, (and the software generates extremely outdated nested table code, (sized by 1x1 transparent .GIF files in many cases), to populate the "content area" of the template.

The backend processing is solid, but the UI is 1990's.

I finally found multivendor solution in asp.net - dotshopping cart, but it looks very basic.
Still looking :-(

I came across nopCommerce in asp.net (c#)
It is open source and I downloaded the code and setup the database. That cart appears to have a lot of features.

I just used it as a reference to compare to my custom .net e-commerce application.

See if that has multivendor. Or you could use it as a starting point and hire a .net developer to customize it for you.

I have just seen your post and our company has been working for the last three years on a multi-vendors e-commerce software in .Net called Magelia WebStore.

We have released a community edition with that is free and can be downloaded from codeplex or from our website (magelia.org). Our professional and Entreprise editions target larger companies and provide multi-store / multi-vendor capabilities. A trial demo of the Professional edition is also available from magelia.org.

Best regards

Maybe look at Inzu it uses a JSON API for it's Cloud CMS and ecommerce so is compatible with ASP and PHP, you could just have multiple accounts for each user but include them all on the same site.
