    We really need to be able to edit and preview products before they go live. It’s nice to be able to do that from the front end, but we should be able to also do it from the vendor dashboard area.

    Also, please add a select column where we can delete items. Right now you can only delete what is made live, but that is ineffective. We are using csv files to import products into the shops and for example, the last one I did imported other people’s products into this vendor’s dashboard area. There is no way to delete them from her dashboard and it would take hours to make them all live and then delete.

    Finally, we need a duplicate function where a similar product can be copied and then edited. I know you are doing something where vendors can sell the same product, but we are working with handmade products where everything is one of a kind, but might be similar to one that was listed previously. The vendor would then load new images and just edit the text.

    Let me take care of the points you have shared @rayela, one by one.

    1. We really need to be able to edit and preview products before they go live. It’s nice to be able to do that from the front end, but we should be able to also do it from the vendor dashboard area.

    >> From the admin’s part this feature is available. When a new product is added or any existing product is edited by the vendor, it asks for admin’s approval. Only after admin approval, the product can be visible on the shop part to the customer. But there is an option called “Preview” is already available. Admin can preview the product before approval as well as after approval too.

    2. Also, please add a select column where we can delete items. Right now you can only delete what is made live, but that is ineffective. We are using csv files to import products into the shops and for example, the last one I did imported other people’s products into this vendor’s dashboard area. There is no way to delete them from her dashboard and it would take hours to make them all live and then delete.

    >> We have to go through this requirement and have noted it down, if technically it is possible then would definitely integrate it.

    3.

    >> This is “One product and multiple sellers” concept and it is available on our latest version WC-Marketplace 2.3.9. I would also like to inform that feature you have demanded is already offered by the WC-Marketplace plugin

    Thanks,

    Hi, Rimpa-

    Thank you for the feedback. I just think that there are certain things that are very common for any of us who sell online. I’ve used many different sites (eBay, Etsy, and other marketplaces) and all of them have tools for the seller to list, preview, copy and delete from the back end. These should be in sortable lists that allow keyword searches as some shops can become very big.

    The way you have it right now is workable, but becomes clunky and difficult to manage once a shop has more than 100 items. Think about finding an item in a shop that has 2, 000 items….

    Anyway, I hope that you keep improving the back end so that sellers can have good tools.

    Thanks for sharing your experience @rayela. Presently, WC-Marketplace does have the options as copy, edit, delete, preview and view the product listing facility. But I agree that we don’t have the facility of searching the products through keywords as we are new in this, although you may have noticed that we are progressing in faster rate so that we can give the best to the users through our plugin. Hope we will come up with the all facilitate, most user-friendly multi-vendor plugin soon.

    Regards,
    Rimpa

    OK, so how do you copy a product that you already listed? I don’t see how to do it.

    And, I also need to delete products without publishing them first…
