I am interested in getting to know CS Cart's multiple storefronts better, but I am having a hard time finding information for some of my questions, so I am posting here in the hope that someone I know can answer.
1. How multiple storefronts works with vendors? Can a vendor choose in what storefront they will be available?
2. How products works with storefronts? Can a vendor choose to display a product only in storefront A or B?
3. How product settings (like price and description) works in a multiple storefront installation? Settings from a storefront are displayed in other?
I am planning to create a marketplace with storefronts separated by countries, most of vendors will not operated in more than one storefront, but some will be available in multiple storefronts with different prices for the same product. I need to understand how product catalog and vendors works with differents storefronts that will have different product prices, currencies and languages.
Hope you can find some answers on your questions here
Thanks for the video, some questions have been answered, but others still remain.
I still can't understand how the product catalog and vendors work when we have several storefronts. I am not sure how can a vendor select in what storefront they want to sell or how can him select to sell a product in storefront A or B?
Thanks for the information keep sharing such informative post keep suggesting such post.
I read the documentation but still with doubts about how the storefronts works for the multi vendor version. I download and created a demo version with multiple storefronts and some features seems not be working as it is explained in the documentation.
By example, in this link (https://docs.cs-cart.com/latest/user_guide/stores/index.html) is described the following:
In Multi-Vendor Ultimate, storefronts are a way to create regional branches of your marketplace. You can create a storefront for a specific country, with specific currencies, languages, payment and shipping methods, and vendors. For different looks, each storefront can have its own theme, layout, and blocks.
I created two storefronts one that use USD and other that use EUR, but all products I created only use dollar as their reference price in the backend product edit. I couldnt find a setting in shipping methods where can I select in what storefront this shipping method will be available and seems that vendors can't select by themselves in what storefront they want to sell their products.
I really would like to see a real marketplace running with storefronts enabled. Until now seems that the multiple storefronts are not too much different from a simple installation with multiple currencies and languages.
