I would like for this to be implemented as soon as possible as well. Much needed for what we're doing.

It is mind blowing that this is not resolved. Considering abandoning woocommerce entirely. SMH

I am even more amazed when I determined this is integrated with WooCommerce Bookings also. Create and control bookings from frontend - See the demo here https://bright-star.com.au/product-category/rockets/

Thanks for sharing.
This is so essential. Ive lost vendors because they find the ui to be to confusing. There spent days customising the experience but looking to move to another product since it seems this and other issues are just ignored.

I support the idea, besides allowing Stripe payment way pleaaaaaaase.
That would be a very nice feature. Is it currently under development?
I am going to add one final submission on this topic in the hope it gets picked up.
I note you have updated your Docs on this - suggesting you might finally tackle the elephant in the room:
"However with things ever so changing, we are thinking of re-designing how a product is added. We realize it is quite difficult for a vendor to understand how everything works when presented with so many settings/options when adding a product."
Then you go and spoil it with "With this said, we may add an on-boarding type interface where it will have step by step guide on adding a product for ease of use."
I am here to let you know that a wizard over the bloated, complex and 90% irrelevant WP product admin UI isn't going to cut it. Sorry but it isn't.
I speak from experience having lost many vendors as a result no clean / clear front end for managing their products. They leave praising our support, our service and our site - the only reason for their departure being complex and confusing product management. We even took it off their hands and heavily customised the vendor dashboard providing forms for them to add / remove products which we then entered / managed through the WP backend manually.
But they wanted to be able to do it themselves as they do on other platforms that they sell through, so we then took it a step further and tried to simplify the WP product admin page using CSS overrides to hide irrelevant and confusing options (such as variations / product data / virtual / downloadable / tax handling etc).
Unfortunately, it is impossible to do this through css alone as required identifiers are not available in many cases so we have had to revert to doing it for them manually again.
The long and the short of it is, there is no short cut here. WC Product Vendors needs a product management front end, with simple add / list / edit / remove functionality and options relevant to the store (in our case a photography gallery) that can be configured by the Administrator, if it is to compete with the alternatives now available to vendors that provide just this.
Please do not take this as overly critical of a solution that I think is otherwise great, I have taken the time to share this view from the coalface in the hope that you guys and gals will grasp the nettle and try to address this issue properly rather than kludging it. It’s a complex task I know but I’m afraid that, IMHO, without it you are unlikely to be able to compete for long.
Also definitely love to see this happen soon. All your extension competitors have this option available. Please look into this soon. Also please add the integration to link vendor whatsapp numbers to your other extension: https://woocommerce.com/products/order-on-whatsapp-for-woocommerce/
Stil desperately needed after years of begging. The developers don't seem to understand that a clean, clear front end for Vendors to add and manage products can be make or break for a marketplace - shunting non technical users to an overcomplex, confusing and technical backend for product management just because it's there is the achilles heel of this solution.
Please build it guys! Very needed and necessary feature. An easy to use and intuitive UI for vendors is a must.
I really desire this and I don't understand why it wouldn't be a logical step in the progression of this extension. You have competitors who are doing this already. https://www.moisturecontrol.com.au/
There's plenty of options that add a frontend to WooCommerce Vendors such as Vendify theme and plugins, theres a few other options out there sold via Envato.
Here's the link to see what the frontend product editor looks like > https://astoundify.com/marketing/vendify/video/33-second-editor.mp4

This is a must Woocommerce. It’s like you’ve built a lovely house, asking everyone to come over, but you make them come in through the back door to the basement. All jokes aside. Like Etsy, Amazon, alibaba, and many other marketplaces, the vendor on-boarding is the most crucial part of building a valuable platform. I would happily spend $200 usd just for decent onboarding, and 100 for extensions just for this part. Eg welcome screens, profile/storefront completion meters, analytic dashboards. This one aspect would probably ad 2-3% to the top line of this extension category
