Mercado is a fully functional marketplace website template that can support our Merchant and Caterer applications. It has email, cart and payment integration.

Payments are processed through PayPal as they are independent of any financial institution and will accept payments from bank accounts or credit cards from PayPal members or not. But if you wish, you can modify the template to integrate with your own financial institution's payment portal.

A detailed setup guide is provided with the template so you can make the basic modifications for your own setup.
