The Master Products add-on allows you to share the product base among multiple vendors. There is no more need to care for the store content (e.g. tracking the product descriptions), no need to pre-moderate vendor changes. The product name and description are unique and added by the admin, whereas price and quantity vary from vendor to vendor.
When the product base is shared, each vendor can select the products to sell. They define their own prices and quantity. That’s it, they are ready to sell.
When a product is sold by several vendors, customers can see a comparison table on the product details page. They can compare the prices and available quantity to decide which vendor to choose.
You can also decide whether you want to allow or forbid vendors to create their own products and share them among other vendors.
