I need to make an online store with a marketplace system for a company which allows multiple vendors (private sellers or business sellers) to sell their stuff. Private sellers would have a free plan where they can only sell used, open box end of line, overstock products, whereas business sellers would have to pay for a different plan so they can sell new products, high in stock and in demand.

Just give me any recommendation you have

    This sounds complex.

    I recommend you negotiate a large bonus for yourself and
    hire some professional website developers to get this done.

    The second recommendation is that after you develop this,
    sell it to them for a large sum, otherwise you will not ever
    get anything out of it as it will belong to the company. You
    might need to quit your job to do this.

    Third, quit your job, develop this system, and sell it to them
    and several other companies.

    The hardest part in this business model is TRAFFIC.... the platform itself is you can get... ( https://apps.shopify.com/multi-vendor-marketplace ) for shopify as an example.

    The business model I use would be for the 1st category of clients you list, and i simply buy that inventory, and then list those items on eBay, Amazon, and Marketplace. Takes the "Traffic" portion of the equation out of the picture.

    The development portion of this project may or may not be expensive, but the traffic side, now that gets expensive quick.

    Finding the right platform for your multi-vendor marketplace depends on your budget and technical skills.

    Hosted solutions (SaaS) are easy to use with built-in features but offer less customization. Examples include Shopify Plus and BigCommerce Enterprise.
    Self-hosted solutions are more customizable but require technical knowledge and ongoing maintenance. Examples include CS-Cart, Yo!Kart, and WooCommerce (with add-on).
    Consider your budget, technical expertise, desired features, and future growth plans when choosing a platform.
