“Flea Market” is the module for placing purchased products.
Site users will be able to sell products they purchased on the site through any kind of product aggregators.
What Products Can Be Added
It’s allowed to sell products from the completed (i.e. paid and delivered) orders. Option to offer product for sale is added to “Closed Orders” tab in "Orders" section in User Account.
How it Works
“Sell” button appears next to the item. By pushing the button you open the interface for adding product to the storefront. User can upload one image of the product, set up price, quantity, add description and his/her contact information. When all fields are entered, he/she presses “Offer for Sale” button. Product is forwarded for moderation to site administrator. User has a right to edit product information, in this case product will be sent for re-moderation. Until re-moderation is passed, the product is not displayed on the site.
There is “Flea Market” section containing all the products offered for sale in administration interface (new admin area, “Catalogue” section). Administrator is entitled to approve product (so it will be displayed in the storefront), reject product (notification providing the grounds for rejection will be sent to user), remove once displayed item from sale (e.g. if it’s sold). Sold products are not displayed in the list.
How to Use
