Supplier Frontend Product Uploader

Admin can assign attribute sets available per each supplier or vendor, while maintaining the admin’s exclusive ability to approve or dismiss uploaded products, as well as moderate supplier products which need further editing.
The Magento ® Supplier Product Inventory Management Extension by CreativeMinds  has the ability to benefit both admin and suppliers. Admin have the ability to manage suppliers and uploaded products, while store suppliers can upload products from a front-end dashboard without gaining access to store admin.
