Multi-vendor marketplaces are golds mines when done right. The big dogs are Ebay and Esty and Amazon, but you can find popular niche multi-vendor sites such as Codecanyon or MagentoConnect. The idea behind multi-vendor sites is to allow people, or companies, to create profiles and uploads their products for sale.
When customers come to your multi-vendor site they can pick one item from company ABC and another from company XYZ and it is all processed through the same shopping cart. The multi-vendor payment processing system divides the payments behind the two vendors and everyone goes home happy. This ecosystem of people creating and selling in one place helps the customer find a more deserve set of products, and you, the site owner can make some big bucks through fees.
