Goldmembership - Need to know one thing!

Hi!

I've been trying out your marketpress and membership plugin, but it didn't work the way i wanted, unfortunately.. Im using a woo commerce website. Instead of me, selling products I wanted users to make products to sell via front end and not by logging in trough WP-login, because I did not want to give access to too much. But last resort to make it work. Now Im asking you, if i buy gold membership, will you help me with following things if possible:

* Each member need to have access to create products via WP login, - maybe to change detail information about themselves as well. - Thats it, no more access.

*When member upload a product, he can only change/manage his products (don't know if each member can only overview what their products because I do not want members to be able to delete others products).

*If possible(since its inside wordpress), charge the members for uploading products (set some sort of subscription)?

If it makes any difference, the theme I use is:
http://theretailer.getbowtied.com/demo/

*Note that Im not completely new with wordpress or html... But Im no master either :slight_smile:

Thanks for the support I've got from you so far.

Sincerely,
Pierre Cavalli

    Hello there @Pierre and welcome to the WPMU-DEV Community!

    Instead of me, selling products I wanted users to make products to sell via front end and not by logging in trough WP-login, because I did not want to give access to too much. But last resort to make it work.

    The MarketPress plugin does not have a front-end products editor out of the box. However there is a 3rd party plugin available for that, you can get it here: http://mp-frontend.info/

    * Each member need to have access to create products via WP login, - maybe to change detail information about themselves as well. - Thats it, no more access.

    *When member upload a product, he can only change/manage his products (don't know if each member can only overview what their products because I do not want members to be able to delete others products).

    In order for MarketPress to work as a marketplace where users will be able to create their own products, you must be using WordPress multisite.
    This way, users create a new site and add their products there.
    Each user has their own store, and at the same time on your main site all products from all sites can be displayed.

    *If possible(since its inside wordpress), charge the members for uploading products (set some sort of subscription)?

    You can use the Pro-Sites plugin to charge users as you wish for the sites (stores) that they create.

    If it makes any difference, the theme I use is: http://theretailer.getbowtied.com/demo/

    That theme is built for WooCommerce. It will NOT work for MarketPress!!

    I would advise you to take a look at our tutorials for MarketPress by viewing the videos in this playlist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Alfb4_TOFiA&list=PLV1BcivFAIduTUJfnzcGUf0B_9UMlNy0v

    I hope that helps!

    Cheers,

    Thanks but I've tried it, the main problem is not for them to actually sell their items or let them create a website trough my website, i just want them to add products.

    A better painted picture/scenario would be something like this: Im the owner of my retailer store, I have employees, I want my employees to help me put up products, but I do not want them to have access to anything more than just adding products..

    Sincerely,
    Pierre

    The payment gateways are installed per-site, not per-user. This is due to the database design of WordPress and I'm afraid that there's not much we can do about this! As a result, users cannot have different paypal API-credentials, since these are on a per-site basis.
    You could have a multisite installation and completely block access to the dashboard. Then using a plugin like http://mp-frontend.info/ you can enable front-end submission of products.

    Cheers,
    Ari.
