Hi everyone, 

 

Is there an ability to create independent storefront for a specific vendor while using same multi-vendors cs-cart database?

 

Is it possible to view all vendors' products at the main storefront and at same time view the vendor products at his/her storefront?

 

If yes, will the vendor own different payment methods via his/her storefront?

Point 1 and 2 are possible but point 3 will need custom development.

Yes, multi-vendor supports microstores. Examples from demo store:

 

Vendor 1:

http://demo.mv.cs-cart.com/simtech/

 

Vendor 2:

http://demo.mv.cs-cart.com/acme-corp/

 

But common checkout is used to buy products from different vendors. Therefore there is no ability to specify different payment methods per vendor

Above examples show the Vendor Page with products display, but is it means independent storefront? As I found in sc-cart docs: 

 

CS-Cart allows you to manage multiple stores with one administration panel. Stores have separate storefronts, settings, and checkout mechanisms, so that visitors can treat them as independent stores. This section of the documentation describes how to configure multiple stores.

I think they meant that there is an ability to specify different shipping methods for each vendor. Also the main order is split in several suborders (separate order for each vendor). But money are received by the store owner only. 

 

If you want to transfer money to vendor automatically, please pay attention to our Stripe Connect module:

I see you can made a link to show a particular Vendor's page, but is there a way to do so "invisibly" such that if this vendor were to have their own webpage, they could show this store as if it were there own without any tie back to the main marketplace? The only "tie-back" would be a common login with the main marketplace and payment would flow through the marketplace and items would draw down on same database and inventory as vendor listed in the marketplace.

 

I would imagine this should be able to be accomplished with some sort of custom layout set up on a per vendor basis and then applying the widget code for them to embed to their own webpage? Also should work similarly to drop their store onto facebook?

 

1. Admin creates custom layout for a specific vendor

2. Layout utilizes vendor filter AND selects a specific vendor

3. Layout hides the block to view and modify vendor filter

4. Functions as if this were a single vendor store front, but pays back commissions to the marketplace hosting it

 

There has got to be someone who could make this happen!

 

As well as a more flexible commission structure (% of price + fixed $ per item would be a good start instead of 1 or the other only)

I am afraid, additional code customization is required to configure multi-vendor in such a way

Any idea what sort of cost would be involved to modify CS-Cart in the way I described?

 

Who would be capable of making such a modification?

 

Ability to set-up custom layouts for Vendor specific widget code to embed to their own websites would be extremely valuable for attracting Vendors who currently sell on their own web page but do not want to manage 2 separate inventory databases!

 

More advanced feature (optional): Option to allow the Vendor specific "store" that is extracted from the "multi vendor database" to allow for a separate User ID and Login for the customers as if it were a separate store --- this would allow the marketplace to be invisible behind the Vendor's store.
