YITH WooCommerce Multi Vendor

YITH WooCommerce Multi Vendor allows you to turn your store into a multistore where vendors manage their own product and earn a commission on every sale.

  • price
  • backup price
  • required amount for a rise
  • auction length
  • a chance to automatically schedule the next auction for each product

If combined with YITH Frontend Manager as well, your vendors will be able to create and edit an auction product from the frontend dashboard.

If you decide to enable the automatic charging option, the options in YITH > Auctions > General > “Auctions rescheduling” will change accordingly.

By default, the plugin has 3 attempts to charge the customers’ credit card, 1 time every 24 hours. The system only tries to take money from the default credit card.

This means that even though you have added multiple cards, the system will only use the default one.

Within the “Auction rescheduling” options you can decide what will happen with the auction product, if the system was not able to charge the winner.

Option 1 – Reschedule the auction

Option 2 –

  • When the Stripe payment fails after the 3rd attempt, Try to charge the 2nd highest bidder.
  • And if also the 2nd one does not pay, you can either choose to do nothing or reschedule the auction.
