WordPress & WooCommerce

We are a company with many brands.  We currently have websites and a store but are looking at changing all our websites over to WordPress and WooCommerce for the store.

Each brand has it's own unique website.  We are going to use the multisite option of WordPress.

Our question is:

Is WooCommerce capable of containing all our products for all the various brands in one store with one cart, checkout, etc?  So no matter which brand website you are on, you can select a product from another brand and everything goes into one shopping cart with one checkout transaction.

Is there a better option then WooCommerce?

So according to them, it doesn't do it out of the box but there are hints and code snippets all over the place that purport to alter that behavior but I've never tried them so your mileage may vary.

Multi-site might not be the best approach - it may be better to simply place each "brand" into it's own category, and have one website, with pages for each brand.

If you have a specific reason for multi-site, e.g. have to have different domains, WooCommerce could be in it's own site, and each brand website could link to that to place orders and checkout - in essence, many marketing websites and one online shop.

The WooCommerce website could have the brands arranged into categories, so that each brand appears in it's own space in the online shop.

There would only be one WooCommerce site, thus only one cart, one checkout and so on, and an order could contain items from several brands.
