When an order comes in for 3 separate vendors, the 3 vendors should automatically get paid. One option might be to give each vendor the ability to add their own payment processor. This is to avoid the administrator from having to do payouts manually and then manually updating CS-Cart to let it know. If it did this, I'd purchase the Multi-vendor software, but without this it's really not worth the high price.392 votes
You should be able to customize each storefronts look and feel. A new template should be able to be applied to each vendor if they request it OR atleast have a few option/templates to select from.
On a basic level, colours should customizable. This prevents all stores looking the same.356 votes
Vendors when signing up should be able to select a package or payment plan. This would limit their functionality such as number of products they may add or allow a certain number of products to be featured or highlighted on the site and so forth. The packages would charge a fixed fee (month, yearly) or be on the commission basis which is already available.325 votes
Released in v4.4.1
It is released as built-in add-on called Vendor Subscription Plans.
There needs to be a communication box added so that a customer can contact a vendor before a sale, so that they can ask any questions ahead of time.
There is currently only a communication box set up so that Customers can communicate with the Vendor after a sale.182 votes

It is great to have Paypal Adaptive payments so that payments are received directly by the vendor through paypal just like etsy.com49 votes
Released in v2.2.1
As an admin, right now you can put a percentage or an absolute value for the seller commission.
The Admin also has to take on the Paypal, Google, Credit Card fees etc. There should be a way for the Admin to also charge the vendor for these fees.
I like the idea of adding a __$ + __% depending on the payment method the customer uses, that would get get passed onto the vendor. Then show these fees in the vendor payment report so the vendor knows what fees they incurred.42 votes

The Product Filters are an extremely effective way to search for items, however they cannot currently be used to filter a list of products when looking at a specific vendor. Product Filters should be made to work on returned search results for the best search experience.19 votes

See Vendor Stores feature.
It would be good to have vendors pay a monthly fee to sell there goods.9 votes
You can set a percent from sales or a solid fee.
There should be the option to allow a vendor to also be a customer and make purchases. Ideally then we can setup the vendors on a separate user group and other vendors could offer vendor only discounts etc. They should only need to use the one email address and account for both the customer login and the vendor login.9 votes
Released in 3.0.1
Allow global default setting of commission percentage/flat rate, so that when a new vendor is approved, the commission rate is already entered into his account.8 votes
See Vendor plans. Now when you create vendor he gets the recommended plan. This means that he will have the commission from the start.
Just like importing multiple products and orders at once in excel format there should be option to import multiple vendor data at once using csv.7 votes
Released in 4.4.1
Export/Import also can be used to manage vendor plans in bulk.
Released in v2.1.3
I'm still trying how the CS-Cart Multivendor Alpha edition...
It could use some page for registration of vendors, that would be subject for approval of the administrator instead of the administrator inputting all the required details3 votes
Added in v2.1.2 Multivendor edition.
