Currently reviewing cart solutions and have a few questions about functionality that i would like some feedback on.

Could someone indicate if any of the following functionality is supported -

1. Build a completely customized native app for ios/android but leverage and integrate with opencart. App would be solely for ordering.
a. Are there APIs for submitting orders, viewing orders status, viewing products, accessing notifications, view customer details, vendor location?

b. If there are no API can we add new customers|new orders|get/set notifications directly by inserts|updates etc to the database (is the data model well documented?)

2.
Is any geo functionality available such as google maps integration or location based services connecting vendor locations with current location? I.e. where am i, distance, travel time,

3.
Are there notifications available?

4.
Can you set expiry times|time limits on products?

5.
Does the cart reserve items or can it be configured to be based on first who pays wins?

6.
Is there a Rating system for Vendors?

7.
Is there invite|referral functionality?

8.
Is apple pay/google pay/samsung pay accepted? Or can we link in with payment gateways.

9.
Can vendors access camera within open cart such as via mobile?

10.
Is the interface responsive?

Thanks in advance and appreciate it.

There are a few app solutions that exist already:
https://mobikul.com/opencart-mobile-app/
http://opencartmobileapp.com/
http://www.webstylio.com/mobile/
https://www.exlcart.com/opencart-mobileapp.html

Some info about the API here:

You can add a new API with something like this:

Question not clear, what exactly do you want it to do?

It's actually very difficult for any platform to make it work based on who pays first because it would need to notify someone who might be in PayPal or another payment gateway that actually someone else has completed a couple of seconds earlier.

You mean vendors in a multi-vendor system like multimerch.com?

You can build your own gateways pretty easily but there are a wide range in the marketplace including those you mention I believe.

Well it's open source so if you can code it to do that then yes.

Not sure whether this will fully satisfy your requirement, but if you set a product's stock quantity as 1,
Only a single customer can actually buy the product. The next customer will see a product out of stock message.
