#305925 Vendors Geolocation, Search On Map And By Location

Posted by ezhobby on 28 August 2018 - 09:18 PM

I paid for a custom add-on for something like this, but it would not do what I needed and quit using it.

My vendors all own brick and mortar stores.  I wanted a customer to be able to see which vendors nearby had the item they were looking for.  This way the customer could choose the nearest vendor for quicker shipping or find one close enough to drive to.  In the U.S. it makes a big difference if a vendor is 20 miles away or 2000 miles away.  For it to be really beneficial the store locator has to be improved.  Right now the store locator is pretty feeble.  All vendors should be automatically added to the locator and then if they don't want to be in it, they can deselect it.

#302025 Multi-Vendor Roadmap

Pleas make it where vendors can set their own sales tax rate.  Asking vendors to pay for a service like Taxjar goes against the basic rules of reducing friction for the new vendor.  I have another MVE software solution and that solution allows a vendor to set their own sales tax methods and shipping methods. 

#278020 Multi-Vendor Could Use Several New Features

Posted by ezhobby on 31 May 2017 - 10:13 PM

I have been using MVE for almost two months now. I have been using X-cart Gold plus, X-cart Platinum Multi-vendor and Magento for years.


Now that I have been working with MVE, it has some design features that I really like but as a Multi-vendor platform the following features should be standard and not require any add-ons - some of these features are not even available as an add-on.


1.  vendor/customer/admin messaging - should be included with the platform

2. Store locator:  the store locator should auto-populate when a vendor account is created.  Software is supposed to save time through automation.

3. Vendor ratings should be a stock feature.  Vendor ratings are a core feature of any marketplace.





#276918 File Permissions

Posted by ezhobby on 14 May 2017 - 02:22 PM

I hate to ask this:  Is there a listing of suggested permissions for all of the directories and files for Multi-vendor.  I set them to what I think they should be, but I'm not a developer.  In the other carts that I use they have a list of all the required permissions by directory and file level.





Multi-Vendor 4.5.2.SP2

#276917 Disappointed Simtechdeb

Thank you for your response.  I easily installed the mod once I knew the procedure.   I plan on purchase a couple more mods from Simtechdev.
