Easier Import For Vendors From Other Marketplaces In 4.12.1

18 November 2020 - 11:59 AM

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.
