I want to know how we can allow live site users to create and manage products by their own?

say we want to allow users to register and login to their panel , then they can create their own products that wanna to sell online. also they must be able to manage that products , see their own orders and so on.

as i found we can not act like what kentico do in the eCommerce section

we have done something like this few years ago. It was lot of work. Here are few thing that you will need to do:

  1. Create product create/update using API in some web part that can be placed on Create/Edit Product Page
  2. Create Order webpart and page. Same as for products.

We have used manufacturers to segment our online sellers. For every new user that sells online we have created new manufacturer for him. Why? So it is easier to track and create reports. But this was version 5 or 6. I think now you can extend any of this things inside Kentico modules.

hi thank for reply.

it is also in my mind to do so.

the initial scenario for this could be :

1 - user loging to his account

2 - user see the product he/she created

3 - user create/edit/delete product

4 - user can manage the orders of his products

for achieving these , in the first step , we think about web parts that place on the page(ex:management page).

as i found and research on KCMS V7.0 , it is possible to use cms forms for managing products instead of creating forms manually.

this speed up the development(i do not test yet).
