View Full Version : Can each member create own shop?

Hi looks very promising

Actually I was looking for something very specific and this comes quite close.

My question is.. is the following feasable with geekmart:

Each user can offer a certain amount of products to sell.
They can be accessed through the general catalogue (with categories etc..). There you will find the products that all users have to offer.

Or when u are in the users profile.. there is a shop block (or a link) to view all the items this particular user has to offer.

The payment would be made between the user and the costomer.
But the admin can define what usergroup may create a "shop".

Example I am a new member in usergroup standard. (i cannot sell anything)
I change to usergroup silver member ..(I can sell up to 10 items)
I change to usergroup gold member.. (I can sell up to 20 items)

The delivery and payment conditions are up to the seller.. he should be able to define/choose them.

I hope i made myself clear (english is not my mother tongue)

Would it be easy (for me or someone else) to adapt this product to fullfill my needs?

Hey there,

GM isnt really designed as a community market though there has been some discussion of looking into those types of features in the future.

I'm waiting for this feature too. Although I realise it's a while off!

I was looking for the same but would settle for two shopping areas. one for the public and the other to a member group.

How about each user group gets to see a price that reflects the discount price that we set for each user group e.g. non-register user full price, register user 5% off, member of the trade group 10% off, members of a hidden group 45% off. What would I have to do to get something like this? Do I need to have more than one store? Set the permissions for each store? Set the prices for each item in each store? one more thing, where and when do the customers put in the shipping information, can this also be link back to the user so that they could have a quick link to the store and prices, keep a tab of what they have spent and what was purchase and when? I know this is a not for any one program, but I was told that this is the place to make a wish list and you all could make it happen.
