Basic use case:
Primarily vendors would be adding products which are digital books. For the few physical goods, all products are expected to be shipped from one location.
- Vendors can register easily, but the admin can approve them.
Vendors can create their own products, downloads, and coupons (coupons for their products only). Preferably images are added to their own folder.
Shipping is not handled by the vendor or can be disabled off/on for specific vendors if this is an option.
Some visible sales metrics.
Ideally works on multi-store setup in some fashion.
Automated Payout, commission rate etc is not required, and if it exists can be disabled (it could make my business logic rather difficult.)
As I said initially there seem to be quite a few extensions of this nature available, and I am having trouble parsing through them to find one that best meets my needs. Any commentary, feedback, recommendations on this is most appreciated. Thanks.
