Best in class solution for drop shipping.
At Razoyo, we have implemented, customized and or maintained uDropShip (including the Marketplace option) on close to a dozen sites.
While it takes some effort to configure correctly, and, customization can be tricky because of Unirgy's practice of encrypting portions of the code, it is really the best option for a merchant who is serious about running a high-volume drop-shipping business.
We have used the extension on both Magento Enterprise and Magento Community and found it works well in both environments.
If your are going to install the extension on your site, I recommend you work with an experienced developer like Razoyo ( www.razoyo.com ) for consultation on configuration. Getting it set up correctly the first time is critical for success.

Okay store locator, a little lack of support for the API V2 issue
It's not the craziest SL you'll find out there, but it's plugged to Magento, and it will spare you the trouble of implementing your own SL / hand-made code.
The biggest flaw, IMO, is one of communication: the end of support for Google Maps API V2 was a huge issue for version purchased as late as summer '13 (as evidenced by the reviews coming from distressed users).
I installed V 2.1.2 for a client in 2013.
Front of the module relies on API V3, but back office and latitude/longitude detection still ran on API V2.
If you have this problem, here's the fix:
Go to : app/code/community/Unirgy/StoreLocator/Model/Location.php
and make your $url variable into this :
$url = 'https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?address='.urlencode(preg_replace('#\r|\n#', ' ', $this->getAddress()))."&sensor=false";
And it will run again like a charm, no need to recode everything. :)

The only way to do a marketplace on Magento
We’ve been using uMarketplace for the past 9 months and I wanted to wait with posting a review in order to issue an objective opinion based on our experience with this extension and with Unirgy overall.
We are running uMarketplace Suite on CE 1.8. We have multi-currency, multi-language, multi-storeview international marketplace with B2C and B2B features. Currently we are dealing with a little over one thousand vendors of all shapes and sizes located throughout the world. From major distributors to small one person operations. As of right now we have about 180,000 skus and growing rapidly. Scalability of uMarketplace has been amazing so far.
Configuring uMarketplace took about a month. It was truly a group effort. I would suggest everyone who is about to embark on configuration to have all functional workflow, shipping and overall business requirements finalized before starting implementation.
uMarketplace is incredibly flexible and rich in features. So it is important to know how exactly you’d like it to work. One really great thing is that once some of your business rules change you could simply tweak some configuration settings rather than redevelop the whole system as with all other alternatives that we’ve reviewed prior to commiting to uMarketplace. That has already proven to be a huge money saver for us. Unirgy’s technical support has been really good so far. They always answer all of our questions and address our issues.They troubleshooted configurations for us on several occasions. Response time was adequate. Unirgy's tech support is email based however we did have conference calls with them a few times. Live calls need to be scheduled ahead of time. I found it a bit annoying not being able to pick up a phone and speak directly with tech support engineers on demand but I understand why they operate the way they do. Especially that support is unlimited and complimentary. I understand that more support options could be available from them as service. overall Unirgy's free unlimited support is certainly much better than many others' paid support.
Overall pound for pound we found uMarketplace to be of the most value for us. There are several slightly cheaper alternatives however they don’t provide compatible feature set, build quality and support that
is essential to compete in today’s market. Unirgy has unbeatable reputation and pedigree with the founder of the company being one of the original Magento people. We found all alternatives to be actually much more expensive considering all factors. Unirgy has been known for years for multivendor solutions for Magento and we found their experience in this field very valuable for our project. If we were to do it again I would choose uMarketplace without a doubt.
I hope this review helps others who are going through decision making process as we did about a year ago.

Excellent solution for multiple vendors and drop-shipping. We utilize these solutions on several client sites and they work great and integrate seamlessly. Also without a doubt their support is top notch! Any issues/conflicts or questions we've had have always been sorted out very quickly and professionally.

The best importe I have used so far. Very quick, smart and easy to use.
It's bit pricy but worth it for the excellent support alone.

Required extension for efficient ecommerce
RapidFlow is incredibly useful in minimizing the time it takes to make bulk changes to your Magento store. It definitely is as advertised.
I also have nothing but good things to say about Unirgy team. They were very punctual and helpful in getting everything up and running smoothly.

Developer switched support for licenses away from Server IPs
Everything has been going well with this extension, until the licensing was changed and blocks us from using it from the developer side. We now get an error stating that our license is no longer valid.
We paid extra for a server license instead of a domain license. Unirgy no longer supports server licenses. In order to make our extension work, we now have to give domains that we use them on instead of the server IP we originally gave them. Which is not what we paid for. Regardless... they offered to add the domains for us on our license for a $150 re license fee.
Currently no one can check out unless I pay to have them adjust the license.
Very poor business practice.

I've been using this extension for about a month and I couldn't be happier. I went with the Pro version for custom themed gift certificates. Works exactly as described. Great support and documentation during configuration. I highly recomend it! Thank you Boris and the team! Keep up the good work!

Great Extension and great support!
I've been using this extension for about a month. It fully supports the latest version of Google Maps API V3 and I couldn't be happier with its performance. Now our customers can easily find all of our locations with ease. Great support from the developer during configuration. I highly recomend it!
