Seo Add-Ons For Multi-Vendor And Localisation

24 October 2018 - 11:32 PM

Hi guys,


Hoping some of you might be able to help me. I am looking for some real world feedback on some currently available CS Cart SEO add-ons and how they can be used together (potentially) to create a solid foundation for SEO on Multi-Vendor.


I am very aware that a solid ranking is very much a collection of many factors, including content, strong social media presence, SSL and back links. I merely wish to ensure that I am nailing as many of the factors that as easy to control / implement :)


I am looking to combine both the Simtech Mega SEO add-on - https://www.simtechdev.com/addons/site-management/seo-package.html and package with a product such as https://marketplace.cs-cart.com/add-ons/marketing/canonical-url-and-duplicate-content-fix.html from CS Cart Rocks, or an offering from CS Coding https://marketplace.cs-cart.com/add-ons/marketing/seo-optimization.html the concern being that given the speed at which SEO advances, and that the CS Cart Rocks product has been available for quite some time, are the benefits of the CS Cart Rocks add-on still relevant (some features appear to be available as standard in CS Cart now)?


Any feedback on whether the Simtech add-on will work in harmony with to one of the latter options?


Secondly - My Multi-Vendor store will be highlighting deals from local businesses with a brick-and-mortar presence. As such, I would like to hear some thoughts and opinions on what can be done to ensure that physical location of the Vendors can be included with SEO. For example there will hopefully be a tonne of vendors with a wide geographical catch net. Is there any way to ensure results can be localised given vendor will be supplying and displaying their address?


Thanks guys, really appreciate your help!


Stripe Connect Integration Settings - Merchant Of Record Liabilities

10 September 2018 - 04:11 PM



Hoping someone might be able to help me, I have reached out to CS Cart sales team regarding the settings on their Stripe Connect integration but they do not want to help me unless I am buying software... needless to say I would be more inclined to buy software if they were prepared to answer my questions...


So, here goes... I am looking to build a multi-vendor store and I want ALL Merchant of Record liabilities to lie with the Vendor. As a Site Owner I am hoping to build a 'hands off' platform where customers reach out to the MOR (vendors) to handle all disputes, refunds etc... Following weeks of in depth discussions with Stripe, I am told that the integration needs to be coded to make the Standard accounts for the Vendors and charges should be Direct (which they both are). However, Stripe also informs me that Separate Charges and Transfers needs to be configured within this integration to denote the Vendor as MOR and to give them the functionality to process refunds from within their own Stripe dashboard. 


Does anyone have any more information on this? It seems that standard CS Cart functionality is limited to issuing refunds by solely the Site Admin with the addition of an enabled RMA? Hardly an efficient model for those platforms who which to transfer MOR liabilities to the Vendors.


Thanks so much in advance!
