Vendor / seller accessible reports

Hi,

 

I sell digital downloads and work with different providers (vendors). But my store isn't a marketplace where the vendors can upload their products. I handle that myself. But I need to have a reporting system that they can access and see how their products are selling.

 

So far I tried the following apps:

 

- Vendor Payout: Seems to be right for the job, but it's outrageous price of $60 per month is prohibitive for a starting store. Besides, their app is so basic and visually unappealing that I wonder what they do with the $60 per month they collect.

 

- Marketcube.io: This app is another good one and with an excellent price. But it seems to be more oriented to order management because it lacks even the most basic earnings reporting features. 

 

- Webkul Marketplace and Multiseller Marketplace apps: They are more front store management oriented. Not what I need.

 

- Reporting apps: There are a lot of them, and it takes a considerable amount of time to test each one. Besides all of them offer just downloadable reports. If only I could have an autogenerated CSV or XML, maybe I could link it to Google Data Studio. Far from ideal, but at least it is something.

 

And that's all I could find in the app store. In fact, I didn't see many of this kind of request in the community.

 

So far Marketcube seems to be the winner due to features/price. But their interface and lack of basic reporting features is a drawback.

Am I the only one that needs vendor accessible reporting?

 

Thanks,

 

Enrique

Hi @Enrique1,

 

I understand that you need a way for your vendors to access earnings reports. The apps you've tried so far don't seem to fit the bill due to missing features or outrageous pricing.

 

I may be able to help you with this. If you could wave a magic wand, what would the perfect solution look like?

Thanks Brian for your reply. But i don't have a budget for custom development.

 

The closest to what I want is the Vendor Payout app.

 

In fact, if the price was $10 instead of $60 I would go with it. 

 

Thanks again,

 

Enrique

I would not charge you for developing the app – I would list the app for sale on the Shopify App Store, around the price-point that you suggested.

 

I am interested to know how you want the app to work. If you're also interested in discussing this further, please send me an email to bpholbrook12@gmail.com and we can chat about it!
