Hello

I am developing a new add-on named "Customer's product”.


Thanks to this add-on any visitor of your store will be able to put his product on sale on your site.
It is possible to use this add-on for a lot of various purposes:
- You can make a bulletin board site.
- You can enable your customers to sell and exchange secondhand products.
- You can allow a limited number of partners to add products to your store by themselves.
- You can make a site to place paid advertisements there, in other words charge the visitors for placing advertisements.
- Or for example, if you sell household appliances, setup and maintenance specialists will be able to place advertisements on their services on your site by themselves.

At the moment I continue to work on the add-on and providing it for beta testing. Some of the functions are not available or have not been added yet. You will be able to:
1. Select categories to place users’ products.
2. Limit the ability to add products only for registered users.
3. Select the number of products which users can add.
4. For each category, you will be able to specify the Product Features which will be available for filling to customers.
5. Visitors can only create products, it is impossible to edit products. A user can delete his product.
6. After a visitor adds a product, the product will be available for editing in the admin panel. The product will be put on sale only after the administrator changes the product status to Active.

I would be glad to receive your comments on operation of this add-on or suggestions on how to improve it.

Thank you for your interest.

At the moment the add-on is not sold, it is being developed. I would like to know what functionality should be added and what changes should be made to make this add-on more useful.

The final price will not be over USD 59, also there is the possibility to modify and extend it.

Well this does look interesting, I would buy I think but here is my input;

1. How would I make money on this ?
2. I would like an auto email to each seller after say ten days - they need to confirm the item is still for sale, if they don't confirm by clicking a link the the item is deactivated.
3. I would like a trial period - I'm thinking I would let anyone list ten items during the trial for free. Then after ten days the trial ends and the need to buy one month where they can add more products.
4. All these products should be clearly marked as for sale by "external seller who takes the responsibility"

Great idea, many possibilities, I will be very interested in this. Can it be configured to add products to specific user groups.
e.g, I have many user groups who have certain products for there own company, they could add a product themselves from the main site to their own "user group " section is they would like.

I think the addon is great and would gladly pay for it. The Functionality is perfect it seems. Must be able to remove contact info.

The client has to pay through the site as normal just the ability to add our markup to the customers product that was added.

This sounds like exactly what I need.

We need for a customer to be able to login to the back end (or front end if possible) and be able to add products (not the full backend fields and tabs). Basically, just Product name, description, images, and a few others and be able to choose the category. We would then finish it off.


Is this the kind of thing that the addon can do?

Hello,

1. We will add the ability to purchase credits and place advertisements for credits.
2. There will be e-mail notification of placing advertisements.
3. We will make a free period of placing or a free number of advertisements and a notification saying that the free period expires so that it could be possible to collect payment for placing advertisements. As an alternative, make a function of the paid advertisements which will be listed first.
4. If it is not difficult, it will be. Also now you can make an individual category for a customer’s products, add the necessary text with a warning (that these are customers’ products) to the category description.

Thanks

Hi, thanks for developing more addons. Is this addon basically the same with posibly less features of the multi-vendor version?

Thanks,

D.



Hi. No, this add-on is not similar to CS-Cart multi-vendor version. In addition it can be installed as an addition to multi-vendor version. In multi-vendor version, each vendor has access to the admin panel and full control over products and orders, also products are sold through the site. In this case this is just a bulletin board, no sale is held, the one who placed an advertisement holds responsibility for the product.

Great idea, many possibilities, I will be very interested in this. Can it be configured to add products to specific user groups.
e.g, I have many user groups who have certain products for there own company, they could add a product themselves from the main site to their own "user group " section is they would like.

John



Thank you. We offer just to make a new add-on named “Paid user groups”. This add-on will work with user groups, in other words it is possible to make paid and free user groups. In free user groups, there will be usual store customers, and in paid groups there will be the store customers who have various privileges, for example the ability to add products. We would be very interested to know which functions you need in operation of the new “Paid user groups” add-on.

We are planning to include the following to the base add-on version:
- selling membership to a specific user group for a certain period of time
- a reminding email of extending the subscription to membership in a group.

If you have any suggestions on additional functionality for this add-on, we will be glad to learn them.

Thank you. At the moment there is a setting which hides contact details, in other words they will not be available for public. The administrator can view contact details on the editing product page in the ADDons tab.

If you want to hold sales through your store, you will have to hold responsibility for the products sold there, and this is risky. However if you need it, we can extend this functionality at extra charge. It is not difficult. Feel free to contact me via email sales@cs-cart.com, Subject “Att Daniil Bazhenov - Customer’s products”

Yes, sure. That is what this add-on does. A visitor comes to a page in the customer area, selects a category, completes the necessary fields and creates a product. You just have to check this product and set up the Active status. The product is published.

Please let us know what else you need. Will all users or only a certain user group be able to place products?

____________________________________


Thank you for your comments.

It turns out that it is necessary to add the following functions for the add-on:
1. Add the ability to place products for credits.
2. Notification by email.
3. Placing products for a certain time period. Removing a product when the time expires.
4. Single out a customer’s product from the rest products.
5. Enable the right to place a product for selected user groups. If possible, select the user groups to which a product will be available.

What else should be improved? :)

Today we have thought over one more way of use. With the help of this add-on it is very easy to implement a site with advertisements on selling and renting realty.

We will make several versions with the functionality made for a specific use.

One thing you might want to consider is the following;

1. Customer lists a product
2. Customer is able to generate html code to add the listing to their own website.

I have many customers who have blogs or normal websites but don't do any ecom on those. This would give them an easy way to turn their site into an ecom site.

You could even build this into a Wordpress plugin and offer it free via Wordpress. Allowing anyone with a Wordpress site to display a listing of products. I think this would do well for niche markets.

The categories for the customer added products are these the same as the cs-cart categories?

I have a website with motorcycle parts and the categories are set up so that visitors find their motorcycle easy. It would be great if the same categories are used for the customer products so that the customer products for a specific motorcycle are shown below my products.

for example; a paid usergroup would be allowed to place their products within the existing categories
This would be a great way for other companies to place their products on sale on my site.

a free usergroup would be allowed to place their products in separate categories.
This would be something for visitors and customers to place their items for sale.

paid usergroups is either a paid membership with a certain number of products that can be added.
a higher level of paid usergroup can add more products.

is this addon going to be able to do this?

For us all users should be able to add a product.

We make custom products and after the custom product is made for a customer, we want them to be able to list it as a product on our site.

I think this is perfect.

Thanks
