Marketplace software

Hi, I have a need create a marketplace similar to Amazon, can anyone recommend any good PHP software? I am going to be using Magento for another part of the system, so if there is anything out there that may work with Magento in some way I would like to do this or alternatively I would like for it to provide XML-RPC support, but I won't exclude it if it has no support for any of this.

What type of marketplace you are looking for? bidding style like eBay or just selling items, books, etc. Like amazon?

There is plenty of them, like:

You can also use osCommerce which is more widely used. I suggest you OsCommerce.

I am looking for something along the lines of amazon, where people can create their own account and buy and sell through my site.

Isnt  Magento a branch off OScommerce and if so, could I use Magento to do it?

Commerce is not related to osCommerce AFAIK.

Yes, you can use Magento also. Magento is related to setting up a commerce website:
