WooCommerce is a marketplace plugin for wordpress. You can start selling your items in less than 15 minutes, and there are also many plugins to accomplish all your needs.
Gestpay develops and distributes a free plugin for WooCommerce.
The only prerequisite is that you already know how to use Wordpress and WooCommerce, as a user. You won’t need coding skills to use the plugin.
To simplify the configuration, use a Wordpress instance deployed on a public server. Using it on a local server might be difficult since Gestpay might not be able to access your machine from outside.
