I am evaluating Webkul, Apptha & StoreHippo for my multi-vendor store. Can you please tell me how you are different from Webkul & your platform advantages?

Well, Webkul or Apptha are a little different as they are more like extensions rather than eCommerce platforms. To use these you have to either sign up on platforms like Magento, Woocommerce etc and then purchase the Webkul marketplace extension. So you will be paying at 2 different places, one for the platform and the other for the plug-in or extension. Believe me, even the installation costs extra if you want them to install it!
While on the other hand, StoreHippo's USP itself is Multi-vendor; our prime focus is on building fully scalable and feature rich horizontal and vertical marketplaces for B2B and B2C models of business.
We come out with new versions almost every month adding, even more features to the existing system. Moreover, we give you a support manager as well who helps you set-up the store and becomes your point of contact.
Moreover, you need a lot of technical help on platforms like Magento etc as for even very small changes you need extensions and apps to be integrated. Whereas our aim is to give a seamless and comprehensive platform where most apps are inbuilt in the platform thus eliminating the need of buying extensions/apps for minor enhancements.
Also, when it comes to customization I believe there is no platform that comes close to StoreHippo. We give you access to the front-end and API's for you to play around with the design and integrations. If you have any complex requirements that you want us to scope, we can definitely align a resource and do it for you at a cost that will justify the effort.
