What customers say about OpenCart Multi Vendor/Seller Marketplace
The support system is very weak, I describe my issue but they didn't respond to me yet. when I knock them through their website, they said I need to wait for their response 24 hours.
i,m really unhappy with there support.
I liked the extension but it could have been a little less confusing at places. You do it great because of your support.
