CS-Cart for marketplaces 4.12.1 has been released with improvements for sellers, interface improvements and moreImport Easier for Vendors
Multi-Vendor allows merchants to import CSV or XML files. This is done through the so-called import presets. Presets explain the Multi-Vendor from which columns or elements of the file and what information about the product to take.
Previously, each vendor had their own presets. Even if vendors imported similar files, each vendor needed to set up the preset individually. You could help him with this, but for another seller with the same file, you would have to do the same.
Starting with version 4.12.1, you can configure a general preset that will be available to all sellers. Teach Multi-Vendor how to import a file once, and any vendor can import a similar file without any hassle. If the seller needs to change the preset for himself, he can create his own copy of the general preset. This made the import easier for beginners, but retained all the features for advanced users.Communication between administrators and sellers
Previously there was a module “Ask the seller a question” which allowed the buyer to ask a question about the product. But in version 4.12.1 we had to rename it to "Message Center". This is because now the module allows sellers to communicate with the administration of the marketplace and vice versa.
The seller can contact the administration from various pages of the admin panel through the button with the gear icon. In this case, administrators will see from which page they were contacted. Marketplace administrators can do the same. This makes it easier to discuss problems related to specific products or import presets ..New module for seller ratings A
new module “Seller ratings” has been added to CS-Cart for Plus and Ultimate marketplaces. It allows you to automatically split sellers into levels: bronze, silver, gold. There are many criteria, and you can compose a rating calculation formula from them yourself.
After that, if you turn on the sorting of sellers by rating and set it to default, then buyers will see the products of the most important sellers above. This can encourage sellers to take action. For example, if ratings are heavily influenced by reviews, it is in the best interest of sellers to ensure that reviews are good.
