Suggestions on [DBTech] DragonByte Shop

#1
Dear Sir/Madam,
After quick testing of this addon, I have some recommendations for this product:
1. There should be the function to automatically create new thread in pre-defined category when new item added on shop. Currently, users can not find the place to ask/discuss about a specific item
2. There should be a button to create new store/shop in pre-defined category (as mentioned above) so that users can promptly create new store/shop
3. There should be a filter (by date, location, range of price, status/condition of product (new/used), ....) in shop or in pre-defined category (as mentioned above) so that users can sort out the products as their wishes. If can, integrate google map into shop so that buyers can easily find where the real shop is.
4. There should be a rating/feedback system so that sellers can leave feedbacks after buying a specific product and users can view the feedbacks of seller before buying.
5. There should be a function of auction.
6. Category should support sub-categories and there should be an option to choose the positions of category displaying (currently, supports only the top of shop, right ? left ?). How does this addon deal with if we have 30 categories on shop ? Customers will be confused with the shop have many categories at the top ?
7. There should be an invoice system which send receipts to buyer’s email or buyer can view trading summary (total amount, tax, VAT,…)
8. There should be option to view all products of a specific seller which is being sold.
9. Facebook allow fanpage to create shop, there should be an option/button to submit an item to Facebook shop when adding new item.
10. There should be an option of product shipment/delivery
11. Chatting system integration for quick support
12. Reporting system for cheating transactions.
13. Badge system for sellers based on specific criteria (number of products sold, numbers of feedbacks, number of selling year,… ): diamond seller, gold seller, silver seller, bronze seller, ….
14. Option to link shop with Showcase addon (this is best addon for product showcase)
15. Statistics of shop so that buyers can view the latest added items/latest feedbacks/...
16. Option/Button to convert/link the other virtual money to yours on shop.
...
Please support to consider my suggestions and make it better and better , and finally the best one for Xenforo.

Thanks so much.

1. There should be the function to automatically create new thread in pre-defined category when new item added on shop. Currently, users can not find the place to ask/discuss about a specific item
I'll add this to the ToDo list :)

2. There should be a button to create new store/shop in pre-defined category (as mentioned above) so that users can promptly create new store/shop
I have plans to add on-page links to the "Shop Management" and "Item Management" pages you see in the navbar.

3. There should be a filter (by date, location, range of price, status/condition of product (new/used), ....) in shop or in pre-defined category (as mentioned above) so that users can sort out the products as their wishes. If can, integrate google map into shop so that buyers can easily find where the real shop is.
Since our products do not support status/condition (this is a virtual item store), that particular aspect of it is not going to be implemented.

However, I can certainly add filtering and sorting options to the item page :)

Since this is a virtual item store, Google Map integration is not going to be added.

4. There should be a rating/feedback system so that sellers can leave feedbacks after buying a specific product and users can view the feedbacks of seller before buying.
This is already planned (it's a feature in vBShop, which this mod is based upon) :)

5. There should be a function of auction.
We do have plans to add more selling options, although that's very far into the future at this point.

6. Category should support sub-categories and there should be an option to choose the positions of category displaying (currently, supports only the top of shop, right ? left ?). How does this addon deal with if we have 30 categories on shop ? Customers will be confused with the shop have many categories at the top ?
We have no plans for creating sub-categories at this time, at least not until there's a change in design for the store page. Currently, the design we're using would not support sub-categories.

At the moment, we are focusing on feature parity with our vBShop product, although we are always listening to feedback so if enough people request sub-categories and/or a re-design for the main page, we'll certainly revisit it :)

7. There should be an invoice system which send receipts to buyer’s email or buyer can view trading summary (total amount, tax, VAT,…)
As this is a virtual item store that deals in virtual currency only, we will not be implementing this functionality at this time.

8. There should be option to view all products of a specific seller which is being sold.
That is already a feature. Users who create their own custom shops do not have their items mixed in with the admin-created items, there's a separate shop for their items.

9. Facebook allow fanpage to create shop, there should be an option/button to submit an item to Facebook shop when adding new item.
It's unlikely this will be implemented unless a lot of other people request it as well.

10. There should be an option of product shipment/delivery
As this is a virtual item store that does not deal with physical delivery, we have no plans of adding this functionality.

11. Chatting system integration for quick support
You can add this yourself by using various live support scripts, we have no plans of creating a whole live support script for a virtual items store.

12. Reporting system for cheating transactions.
I believe this will be part of the Feedback system.

13. Badge system for sellers based on specific criteria (number of products sold, numbers of feedbacks, number of selling year,… ): diamond seller, gold seller, silver seller, bronze seller, ….
It's not possible to detect what year someone started selling. I can certainly look into adding criteria support for Products Sold and Feedback Received when that is implemented.

14. Option to link shop with Showcase addon (this is best addon for product showcase)
Could you go into more details please?

15. Statistics of shop so that buyers can view the latest added items/latest feedbacks/...
That is planned for a future update :)

16. Option/Button to convert/link the other virtual money to yours on shop.
If/when we implement that, it'll be handled on the "Manage Currencies" page in the AdminCP :)

Hi,
Because many developers already created addons of virtual item store:
- Xen Product Manager : Xen Product Manager | XenForo Community
- Xenforo Resource Manager : Buy XenForo | XenForo
- GoodForNothing Classifieds: GoodForNothing Classifieds | XenForo Community
- Store Framework : Store Framework | Brivium - Premium XenForo Addon / Style Club
...
But, no one concentrates on addons of physical item store. Do you have plan to make it based on your current addons of virtual item store ? --> this is big change for you because you are a voluteer....!
For showcase addon, please refer : Showcase (Item Management System, Reviews, Guides, Garage etc) | XenForo Community
Now, I have to stop using this addon because it does not support physical items

Thanks anway.
