Hi:

We have a request from our most important client to convert their store into a marketplace were vendors will be selling and fulfilling orders. A general outline of their needs are:

  • Each vendor will have:
    • A descriptive page
    • A rating by customer who have ordered their products
    • An authorized number of products (by ranges: 0-100, 101-250, etc.) which he can publish and sell
  • Vendors will have restricted access to the admin for:
    • Checking their orders (only the portion of products provided by them) and updating their status
    • Sending PMs to customers for quotes requests and answering requests regarding their orders
    • Updating products, images, costs and category/ mapping. This can be done individually and/or imported from Excel tables
  • The sotoreowner (our client):
    • Will authorize each request to be a vendor and his number of products range
    • View all full orders which can consist of products that will be sold and fulfilled by him and others sold and fulfilled by one ore more vendors
    • Orders will be paid to the store owner and when vendors deliver their portion should automatically be paid according to the cost they defined for their product
    • Price of products by vendors will be equal to the cost plus a % markup defined by store owner
    • A feature is needed for massively update % markups by: vendor, manufacturer, category and type of produc

 

Please inform us when you will have the multi-vendor option and which of the above features will be available. This can mean that we can keep the client in Smartstore or will have to migrate him to another e-commerce platform.


Best regards

Multi-Vendor is not just an option, but a whole bunch of features (some of them you listed already in your post). At the moment we can give no predictions on when Multi-Vendor will be implemented, but it will be surely available in the future (it has top priority in our roadmap).

 

At this moment - unfortunately - you have to move your client to another solution, or implement at least the important parts by yourself (which is undoubtedly a huge amount of work).

Thank you for your prompt and honest response. I am afraid we will then have to migrate our client to another solution. This will unfortunately be costly because there is a lot of customization in our clients e-store  :(

 

I urge you to get multi-vendor and to move .Net core as soon as possible. I  know both are ver major projects, but if you dont face them soon you will start losing clients against your competitors at a higher rate than now.


Best regards
