CS-cart's admin interface looks old, tired, antiquated 

 

Any ideas about modern vendor admin panel?

 

I am surprised this hasn't been done for CS-cart

Anyone modified it? Integrated bootstrap admin panel?

Why do you think your example is modern? Why eBay or Amazon not using modern admin panel?

The look of admin panel in cs cart impacted my decision to buy this platform as look professional. 

This is my opinion.

A backend doesnt need to be all pretty and stuff, it just needs to work and be developer friendly. No animations and shenanigans.

You should another look at Amzaon's seller panel, last time I checked it has modern look and feel and most importantly very intuitive..

 

Ebay is losing business to Etsy and Amazon because they didn't evolve so they don't count..

 

That said, did you check Etsy's, Shopify and Wordpress admin panels?

You think same way as Cs-cart's engineers do..

 

Yes you don't need it to be pretty if your store has only two types of users Admin (you) and buyers. However if you have mv store you have to worry about third type of users - sellers or vendors. If you can't gain their confidence and trust, there will no products in your store and if you don't have products no buyers. So you have to apply same logic as you would apply to front end home page design to gain confidence and trust of potential buyers.

 

This is purely a business aspect most software engineers and coders won't get it. They are only focused on features, features and features, i have been in this business too long have seen same mistakes too many times..

Here comes the new VM+ which allows vendors to create specific design for their frontstore and backend.
If you don't like the price of VM+, this is a cheap option for the backend only

Not sure it will work differently for different vendors...

Yes, each vendor can have his own color scheme

@HungryWeb can you disable vendor's ability to change colors? I want to keep one combo of colors for all.

@HungryWeb i see a white space under the main menu, when you scroll down white space goes away, looks like an issue to me, I used chrome.

Yes, you can simply do this from permissions

Yeap it worked! One suggestion: this is a great add-on that gives ability to change colors and font, one more small change could make this add-on perfect. Currently vendor login page only has login box, adding marketplace logo, name, footer and some changes to login box itself could make this add-on perfect face-lift for boring default cs-cart.

All valid points 12ka4 - the whole back end lacks intuition for the vendors, who, in 2018 expect an user friendly, step by step experience. We had to 'trim the fat' in the CMS so vendors would not get lost in all the unnecessary clutter.

I think the issue is he is using his business email to send out promotional emails so some emails go to spam folder. He probably didn't see them yet.
