User Powered / Classifieds Store
« on: December 27, 2011, 08:50:32 AM »
I was wondering, what are the possibility of further providing modules/extensions to AbanteCart Cart.

To use this AbanteCart Cart, to also work as an Online Classified, Such as where (In the place of admin adding products)

on the Primary store itself, an admin should be able to (when they select create new store) have an option to select to use the new store as a classified or whatever the name appropriate to such a function.

Hence the new store, the secondary store, can work as a user powered store (where users can upload their products, for resale, be it used or new products xyz, pqr.) no shipping, just a matter of being able to add their products in this store, get reviews, comments (display price) and let other users contact this products poster.

Just a thought, i know this would be totally out of scope.. But i was just wondering. what the Team at AbanteCart Would think of this.

I think you refer to marketplace to allow users to resale digital products. Correct?

Theoretically, there is a possibility  to create marketplace subsystem as an extension. We have discussed this internally, but  at this time this is not our near term priority.

You are welcome to develop one if you are interested. You can post it as free extension in the extension section of www.abantecart.com

See how you can help

I've been looking at the extension documentation.

On http://www.abantecart.com/document_wiki/index.php/Developing_Extensions_and_Extension_API  there seems to be a dead link to a file called  extension_example.zip which contains some example code.  Can this link be restored??
