Does Shopify allow multi vendor store?

Shopify is one of the best platforms for building an ecommerce website. It is fast, reliable and has a huge community which can help with add-on requirements. However, it does not have any native facility to support a multi vendor marketplace store similar to an Amazon or eBay.
For this, you need two things -
One, find a theme online which helps you highlight vendors and their products on the frontend. Any theme will do, however there are some companies offering specialized themes. You can check them out here - themeforest.
Two, install a multi vendor marketplace plugin for Shopify (ShipTurtle) which will give you the ability to fulfill orders from separate vendors. Order splitting, separate vendor logins, vendor product listings, fulfillment, invoicing are some of the things which are critically needed to smoothly run a multi vendor marketplace or dropshipping store.

We caution you against Shopify experts who advice clients to invest 1000s of $ and many months of time to code and develop their own Multi vendor Marketplace backend in interest of "flexibiity" and "bandwidth". An app is much better for the same reason you are choosing Shopify over a custom website - it is much more reliable, robust and does not leave you at the mercy of developers to fix after project handover.
