What's the difference between the Dropship and the Marketplace extensions
The Dropship extension is based on the concept of the fulfillment and inventory management being made by multiple vendors, but the site shows only one seller.
The marketplace extension has the optional ability to show ratings and multiple sellers on the site so the customer on the front-end knows the products have been shipped by multiple vendors.
Try them both out by requesting access to the demos and see for yourself the differences between them.
