Hello! We've prepared a video about our improvements to Multi-Vendor in April and May 2020. Even though it's tailored for Multi-Vendor, there is something that CS-Cart users may be interested in. Mainly, 8:16 (uploading files) and 14:12 (improving the admin panel).
 


General improvements
0:44 — collecting money from vendors and managing debtors
6:25 — ability for vendors to create features for product variations
8:16 — ability for vendors and customers to upload documents (the "File" type for profile fields)
9:17 — a single place for vendors to see all the comments and reviews
9:52 — different payment methods for different countries on a single storefront in Multi-Vendor Ultimate
11:31 — a few smaller improvements

Simplifying the interface
14:12 — the general idea
14:33 — example 1: products and options
15:07 — example 2: products and features
15:23 — example 3: products and variations
15:56 — example 4: vendors and their plans
16:45 — other interface improvements (vendor approval and moderation; feature groups)
 
Plans for the future
18:33 — Multi-Vendor Ultimate: different settings for different storefronts
18:44 — Mobile App: support of product variations and direct customer-to-vendor payments
19:07 — other plans: PayPal Commerce Platform for marketplaces; easier onboarding for vendors

I would add some option to hide Vendors details to the public. I haven't seen any platform sharing Vendor email or other sensitive details with Customers or even public.

Hello. Sorry, I can't yet, as it is still in the planning stage. Once there is any news about that, we'll surely announce it in one of the future videos. For now, we're doing some groundwork (like making the import easier for vendors, and gradually simplifying the existing admin panel). That way, when we get to adding a new panel for vendors, we'd know what to include there.

 

Ideally, a vendor might not need an admin panel at all; he should be able to just go to any category on the storefront and click "Add product" there. However, it's still a longer-term plan, so I can't promise it for 4.12.1.
