With YITH Multi Vendor you can turn your e-commerce store into a marketplace (a multi-vendor platform) like Amazon or Etsy. Turn your e-commerce store into a marketplace (a multi-vendor platform) and earn commissions on orders generated by your vendors.
You will only have to install and activate both plugins, in order to make them work together.
If you want your vendors to manage their own suborders – they will be able to use the custom statuses too – you will have to enable them to Manage orders from the → Vendors permissions.
Custom statuses created by general admins can now be used also by vendors on their own suborders.
Additionally, as for every custom order you can also set a custom email and its recipients, you can add the vendor as a recipient as well.
Example: you want to create a custom Shipped status and create an email notification that informs both the customer and the vendor that the product has been shipped. Select the status and go to Email Settings: here you can add both the customer and the vendor role in the recipient. The email will automatically be sent to the customer and to the vendor to whom the sold product belongs.
