Hi, for now, there is no multivendor feature. It exists in POS (Point of Sale) but not in standard website ecommerce.

Where is this wondrous beast POS (Point of Sale)? The multivendor is very necessary. Created a group with restrictions, but with the ability to enter the admin panel to the component. There is not enough restriction for the user to see only his product. It is also necessary to withdraw interest during a transaction to the seller. I really need it. I bought a module from an Indian Multivendor for Opencart, but there is only one option for one language: either English or some other.

Hi, as written above, Phoca Cart does not have multivendor support for now. The focus of Phoca Cart went another way - to have eshop and option to use the system in brick and mortar stores simultaneously. So in POS more vendors can use the system but in fact all is one shop (stock, prices, etc.)

To make Phoca Cart multivendor - in frontend eshop - a lot of structural changes needs to be done, so for now really hard to say if and when such function will be added or if there will be some external solution for this :idea:

Sorry. It is only necessary to limit the rights of sellers with their goods in the Phoca cart component. User rights can be set in Joomla, but not in the store. Money is transferred by buyers to the general PayPal account of the site owner, then it is transferred manually (with interest) to sellers. For small and specific stores (for example, selling paintings), this option is optimal.

Hi, will be grea to get some more detailed information. In case somebody write such option, I will take a look at it and can implement it to Phoca Cart (if it will be not in conflict with other features) Features like: coupons, discounts, product discounts, stocks, etc. should be even solved in such option. :idea: Maybe accessing images, download files should be somehow resctricted for another users. :idea: Rights for accessing parts of the system (payment methods, shipping methods, categories, ...) should be even solved, etc. etc. :idea:
