Great support and excellent extension
Before we launched our site we were deciding whether to have a system written from scratch or to go with an off the shelf product. Luckily we decided to go with uMarketplace as it has saved us a lot of time and effort. We were able to launch the site in only a couple of months instead of the 6-12 it would have taken us otherwise. We are also able to purchase add-ons when required as the business grows, often for things we didn't even think we would have needed when we initially launched.
As with everything Magento you will need to fiddle around with the code a little to get it to do exactly what you need (however you would be able to run this out of the box if you wished as a vanilla install).
The code is well written and easy to follow. I would say that the documentation is a little on the light side but support is always there if you run into problems and generally if you have some basic magento programming experience you will have no problem making changes.
Ultimately, for the money it is very good value and allows you to launch your business for a reasonable outlay.

Great extension and continued support provided by the Unirgy team.
As with everybody else who has reviewed, I am also really pleased with this extension and the ability it provides to compete in todays environment. Most things have been covered fairly well by other reviews so i'll try and cover things that have been missed.
I have been using uMarketplace for just over a year now. Once you start using it, you really get to feel the time and expertise that have been put in to build the extension to the point it is at now. Alot of hard work has been put into it over time, by a team of developers who have the expertise to create extensions to continually adapt to the ever changing needs of the environment.
There are many ways you can adapt uMarketplace to adjust to the workflows that you wish to take for your marketplace platform. This can be done with external add-ons available on the Unirgy website and further module customisation is available.
One of the main things I am pleased with is that uMarketplace has allowed me to create a relationship with a team of well regarded developers. For those of us who are small businesses or startups, working with Unirgy gives you the ability to outsource work on the coding side, which would have been impossible if you did these things inhouse. With the complexity of creating a marketplace extension, it is important to have quality developers and Unirgy fills this role.
Also for those who have a long-term view on the marketplace business model as the way to go, Unirgy has continued to support uMarketplace with rollouts of updates and new extensions to improve your platform and workflows. Their support has been outstanding over the time I have worked with them and they are a very respectable team of developers.

Building the next world leading marketplace!
The best extension out there for a marketplace!!!
Before purchasing this extension we were debating if we should develop our own marketplace from scratch and spend a few hundred thousand dollars doing this, or using an existing platform or extension.
after a few weeks of checking all the options (yes there are over 30 different extensions out there on Magento and different platforms) we decided to use this extension for the following reasons:
1) This extension has an endless amount of features, you can do everything you imagined with it.
2) Easy customisation with easy access to CSS to allow us to design whatever you would like.
3) Pricing, this extension is one of the cheaper options for developing a high levelled marketplace.
4) the code is written well and integrates very well with the magento.
This extension has saved us lots of time and money and enabled us to build a very high levelled marketplace in only 6 months.
Unirgy gives amazing support for this extension. they fixed every single bug we found and they responded quickly to every question we had.
note: in order to use this extension, make sure you have a talented magento developer, this extension isn't simple but it offers endless features.

This is THE markeplace extension
We have been near one year with unirgy's uMarketplace now. This is the biggest extension I have never seen for Magento so far. It allows to set up a Marketplace within your Magento store, so don't expect something simple. (it's not difficult, but not simple either)
First, be ready to learn the extension and prepare/write down your business workflows. Then, Read the docs! there IS documentation, check http://unirgy.com/wiki/udropship but the extension is so big you will probably lack some feature explanation. Unirgy sent me 4 screencasts to learn the setup, workflows and features. Probably the best resource to understand the extension at a glance.
You will need many features down the road, and probably change some workflows in the future that today seem what you need. This extension is very flexible, and looks like they already met all the issues you might find on running a marketplace.
We bought another extension first (price reasons) and then went for Umarketplace. Don't be mistaken, this is another level in scope and depth.
Quality and support: This extension is rock-solid. Well programmed and optimized. From what we've seen, development started years ago and it has been evolving to what uMarketplace is today. There is so much work! in this extension. Support for us has been always within 24h/48h (due to time difference with Europe). If they can't solve via email, they will ask to access your server and solve it for you. They know SO MUCH about Magento. For those who don't know, Unirgy has been there from the very beginnings.
We strongly recommend this extension and personally, I am following all these guys are doing.
Thanks and keep your good work!

We Could Not Operate Without Unirgy
For us, this is an absolute must have. We have about 30,000 skus in which we regularly update. Not only is this very complete but its VERY quick. We use rapidflow, and rapidflow pro.
Support is always very quick to answer our questions, and we have only had a few issues which ended up being user error. Thanks Unirgy!

Nice module and very useful
If you want to use gift certificates, it is a very good module. We needed to make some minor design adjustments, but overall it works really great.

I wrote Unirgy about compatibility with various carts. They wrote back within a day and were able to give us good direction. This module has worked great on 5 other sites, so with the singular exception that it uses Ioncube loader which is aggravating, I definitely recommend it. If it wasn't for Ioncube, I would give it a 5 stars.
