OFBiz treats vendors in the same way. The business model you describe is 
typically called "Marketplace" or "Shopping Mall" in the OFBiz community.

OFBiz supports the marketplace business model, but there is no vendor 
portal like the one you describe. Building out a vendor portal should be 
fairly easy be reusing existing artifacts.
