Frontend Submissions product woocommerce
allows a vendor to sell its products through the site on frontedn as evanto marketplace or as this extension https://easydigitaldownloads.com/extension/frontend-submissions/
When using product vendors for a marketplace with some of the following plugins, (Woocommerce, Woo Bookings, WP Job Manager etc) some of the product options may not be required.
I.e Shipping, Advanced etc
It would be great if there were options where it was possible to enable or disable functions so that the back end interface was much cleaner.
Generally the bookable product options are confusing for a first time user / vendor, and it would be great if this was reviewed.
OR even better it would be great to have a front end interface which worked like job manager to add products which was more user friendly and intuitive that the currently set up.
Generally this would help promote the plugin to be used as a real marketplace.
I see this was created in 2013 any news on this or any progress at all here?

Product Vendors user registration
It would be ideal if visitors had the ability to register as vendors without the need for a site admin to manually create the vendor profile. Offering this functionality would make it easier to scale a marketplace over time. Additionally, it would make the process much more fluid for a visitor who is interested in signing up to sell. Having to manually create vendors can be inconvenient and time consuming for both the site admin and the new users who are anxious to get started.
- Vendors being able to manage their orders
- Front end product submission
- Automatic payments
What do you think?
When are you guys going to make a frontend product submission form for vendors?? That Wordpress backend form looks really really ugly!
Couldnt agree more, vendors logging into the backend of WordPress right now is a nightmare frankly, nice simple user interface would be super. Look forward to this.
A must have feature for a functional marketplace!! (Product Vendors). I think of the vendors as normal users too in terms of an user-friendly interface. They should also be able to use the site from the frontend and adding or editing a product should be as easy as possible, removing any complication. Because vendors are not website admins in real life and they find it confusing or very difficult to manage their vendor account from the backend, especially since they are not familiar with Wordpress or WooCommerce (and they don't need to be, in my opinion).
I wish I had enough votes to vote for every idea that would make Product Vendors a finished product.

Definitely love to see this happen soon.
Improve the Vendors Extension by adding complete Marketplace functionality . After users register they can submit products from the front-end. The Site admin can choose to accept/reject product listing and verify products. This can also be set to automatic product posting, where no approval process is needed by the site admin. Users who submit products can track their Sales, analytics from marketplace dashboard. Payments are paid out to vendors either instantly via PayPal adaptive Payments or bulk payments at the end of the month. When someone registers on the site , they are set up as a Vendor automatically , and are required to enter a PayPal email address to receive funds.
