CB VMVendor Suite
Finally something to extend virtuemart for multiple vendors! I've been looking for a possibility for others to sell their digital products over my webstore, and Nordmograph's CB Vendor Suite is the solution that works - in conjunction with the Community Builder and AlphaUserPoints solution.

Essentially it works like this:
Any registered user can submit a product through a simple form. A customers buys this product and as soon as the product is downloaded by the customer, the vendor gets points. Through a second module, the vendor can request to have their points converted to cash through paypal. This works for me!

Every vendor can have a little personalized shop description, and add terms and conditions. I'm missing a setting to force common terms in addition to the ones that the user puts up.
Also nice: in each CB user's profile, there's a new tab that displays the vendor's products, effectively making this their own little shop within a shop.

The possibilites for vendors to maintain their profile page is pretty limited, but contains the most important elements. On my wishlist would be the ability to upload multiple product images, and allow the vendor to use a proper editor to compose and format their product description. Also the abiity to apply discounts would be nice.

All in all, for me the CB Vendor Suite provides good value for the money, I can can recommend it to others. Four out of five stars, and the fifth point comes with more functionality.
