Yeah, that's a good point, the categories in the left sidebar can be increased. Passing on the suggestion...

Hey! We are in the process of upgrading Reaction Commerce from 3.2 to 3.8. Our local copies are working fine with the entire integration working properly, however during our deployment we are facing issues with graphql. Specifically,
Access to fetch at 'https://reaction-api-endpoint/graphql' from origin 'https://reaction-api-endpoint' has been blocked by CORS policy: Response to preflight request doesn't pass access control check: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. If an opaque response serves your needs, set the request's mode to 'no-cors' to fetch the resource with CORS disabled.
Due to this we are unable to access Admin, and any of the plugins that depend on GraphQL. Our deployment is orchestrated through K8s.

Hey @advaitambeskar, may I ask why 3.8 and not 3.11.1?

Hello, what is the mongoDB snippet that must be used to best index an object from an array of ids like this:
shareWiths: {shopIds: [ID], xcollectionIds:[ID]}
index the "shareWiths" so each child "shopIds", "xcollectionIds"

Someone here with foss ecommerce solutions experience that can recommed a project for developing a store + market place ( multi vendor functionality). For some reason they killed this in reaction :[ I'd rather donate the $7500 to open source development than throw it at cs-cart or whatever.
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
@sgmihai Reaction actually has multi-store and multi-vendor support out of the box at the API level. You’ll need to build your own payment integration and your own UIs (storefront and admin), but the API side shouldn’t be an issue and everything you need should be built in.
The only thing that was killed is the UI which was Reaction’s idea of what a multi-vendor marketplace would be… But the reality is that, if you’re building something as big as a multi-vendor marketplace, your ideas are gonna be different and you’ll need your own custom UI anyways. Hence the deprecation of the built-in UI but the continued support of the APIs.
sgmihai
@sgmihai
Oh now I understand, thanks! I have not actually checked (tested) reaction in a few years, and only read about this in a github issue and it seemd like a dead end.
sgmihai
@sgmihai
So far I've identified aimeos and cs-cart as potential solutions. I need it to be scalable (responsive with tens of millions of products), and have multi vendor functionality. And have a solid code base, something that can grow into amazon.com one day (yeah right :D)
Anyone care to add to that list? I find this space rather time consuming to navigate and research.
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
“grow into Amazon.com one day”, no big deal :D
I mean, why not Reaction? I see no obstacle building something like this with it.
Tens of millions of products shouldn’t be an issue. I have a client running 2.5 million SKUs (on RC 1, at that!) without a problem. Multi-vendor API is there (just needs a payment method). Build your storefront and your vendor dashboard, and you’re all set.
sgmihai
@sgmihai
Oh I see you're an e-com consultant. I guess I should pay you for that last reply : D
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
yes that’ll be $100,000 thank you
sgmihai
@sgmihai
I don't know why not Reaction, as you said, it's missing many pieces I've no idea how to estimate their implementation costs
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
The many pieces you’re mentionning that it’s missing… are you talking about ready-to-use UIs?
sgmihai
@sgmihai
yes, and having someone that has an idea of the reaction API and doesn't need to spend (some/a lot?) of time studying it.
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
Two remarks here:
  • Why would you want ready-to-use UIs? Are you not going through a design phase and then implementing that design?
  • For what it’s worth, reaction-admin can be used in a multi-vendor marketplace scenario, more specifically with my reaction-marketplace plugin. But if you can afford to build your own vendor dashboard, it’ll be a better experience for your end-users.
sgmihai
@sgmihai
My idea is to start offering vendors 0% comission for the first year (for non-card payments) and then something super cheap (~0.9% or so). Main competitor here, that has 70% of market share, takes 20% (cause they get all the traffic, of course).
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
And one last point, re: "having someone that has an idea of the reaction API”. We should probably talk in private. Maybe I could help you.
sgmihai
@sgmihai
As for my own store, only hope to make a buck is niche products and custom ready to use product combos for different use cases (like car security, video surveillance, etc)
Also I want to combine p2p commerce with b2c, so that people can add their used products offerings to a product page, like on amazon I guess.
Also open the shops to international (at least European market) shipping. for some reason 99% of the stores here don't ship abroad.
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
Realistically, you’re not going to re-create Amazon.com with a pre-built theme and a week’s worth of work. I just want to avoid any confusion there could be on that side. Building a multi-vendor marketplace is a big job, and Reaction does make it easier, but you’ll still need to get some custom work done. Reaction is not a plug-n-play solution like Wordpress, it’s a developer framework. Prepare for at least a few months of full-time work for an experienced developer to get you a POC.
sgmihai
@sgmihai
Nah I was just kidding with amazon. Not even looking for profits tbh, I just wanna start this and see where it goes, for fun.
profits just to sustain servers and software stack developing.
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
Yes, but there will need to be an up-front investment to get things going, that’s what I was saying.
I said a POC of a multi-vendor marketplace, not a copy of Amazon. No way you’d make a copy of Amazon in a few months’ time. Let’s be real here.

I made ~1 mil from crypto, so I can throw that at it.
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
:D
Good for you haha. Which crypto if I may ask?
sgmihai
@sgmihai
mostly ETH, and some XMR
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
Nice
ETH is crazy these days.
sgmihai
@sgmihai
could've been 100 mil, so I get pennies vs the potential (been in crypto for a few years lol)
But I really do not enjoy keeping a constant eye on the markets, I wanna create some valuable stuff for society, not just gains from speculations.
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
I imagine. And the constant anxiety of your investments being wiped any second while you’re sleeping.
So yeah, as I was saying: Reaction is a great choice if you intend to have a developer work on your project and do custom work for you. Which, for anyone who’s seriously tackling a project like this, is realistically the only option. For projects like multi-vendor marketplaces, platforms that promise you the world (Sharetribe for example) with little to no code will usually limit you so much that you’ll have to adapt your business to fit the capabilities of the software. With Reaction, it’s the opposite.
sgmihai
@sgmihai
No, this will absolutely be self hosted and with an opensource core. There can be no other way.
I don't care how cheap it is, you're giving up much control, as you said, relying on SaaS.

Hey everyone, may i find any link or repo where i can get open-source plugins for reaction commerce.
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
@ahsanazeem313 What kind of plugins are you looking for?
ahsanazeem313
@ahsanazeem313
@loan-laux we need plugin for counter-offer/bidding feature for market place where a buyer can bid/ counter offer his price for a product to buy
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
@ahsanazeem313 That’s very specific. I can tell you for sure that you won’t find this as an open-source plugin.
Why not build it yourself?
To be very honest with you, if you’re expecting to jam a couple of plugins together and get something working with minimal dev work, Reaction isn’t the platform for you. This would be more of a Shopify/WooCommerce approach. Very different way of working. RC is more geared towards custom work.
ahsanazeem313
@ahsanazeem313
@loan-laux thanks . we are going to build custom plugins ,just want to confirm if its available then we will not spend our time on it.
Loan Laux
@loan-laux
Good luck @ahsanazeem313! Looks like a cool project you’re working on, by the way.
ahsanazeem313
@ahsanazeem313
@loan-laux one more think i want to ask you. i have find only Dockerfile for production env. can i get for dev environment or i have to write it myself.
