Hi there,

 

CS-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.12.1 will make it easier for new vendors to start selling on your marketplace. This will be achieved by simplifying import for vendors as much as possible. Ideally, to the point that they'd only have to upload the file they might be using elsewhere (on eBay, Amazon, etc).

 

Previously, vendors had to configure the import rules by themselves or with the help of the admin. But now admin will be able to configure those rules (an import preset) once and make it available to all vendors. A preset could be something like "File from Amazon", "File from eBay", etc. The ability to upload a file that they already have should make the lives of vendors easier.

 

For a vendor, it will look like this:

Right now we're thinking of adding several common import presets to CS-Cart & Multi-Vendor by default. That way, you wouldn't even have to configure the presets yourself, and your vendors would be able to use them right away.

 

Could you please recommend what formats would you like to see there, and provide some sample files for this format. It could be Ebay, Amazon, Shopify, or some other platform.

Would be better to have Shopify and Woocommerce presets

First you should checkout Etsy connector, shopify connector available on the marketplace, that is the ideal way to import items from marketplaces. It is a API based functionality and imports everything including pictures and most importantly it auto updates prices and quantity. If you have an item that is sold out on marketplace there is no point in selling it on your cs-cart store that is auto updates are good. 

 

If only way to do this is by importing file than you must have presets for Etsy, Shopify, WoCommerce and Amazon.

Unfortunately, this feature was not released, not even in 4.13…
