Frontend, Buddypress, Store and Product Management for Marketpress

Is there an easy way to make it so a shop keeper/seller, someone running a sub-blog with Marketpress, to manage their products and store on the frontend of a buddypress theme, rather than the wordpress admin area?

I know you say we can create an Etsy-style shop, but I'm struggling to figure out the right kind of workflow and plugin combination to do this. One of the big things I want to do is allow a seller to manage everything without entering the wordpress admin.

Thanks for any help.

    Hiya counteragent,

    Currently with MarketPress this is not available. However, what you're looking for is one of the exciting developments that is happening - both in WordPress core functionality and in terms of plugins and themes.

    We'll be rolling out some examples of this - you'll see it in action shortly with the next version of our Classifieds plugin - you may even be able to take a look there and see how it's implemented.

    I agree, it could make things a bit more intuitive for new users, however, we don't have a timeframe for this being implemented into MarketPress at the moment. It's still a 1.x product and we want to get the core shopping functions correct first - then liven it up with some rockin' stuff like what you're referring to here.
