From the Vendors tab in the plugin settings, you will find multiple subtabs for your vendors. The first one is the Vendors list, so a page where you can find all vendors registered and add new ones.
The vendor ID column is hidden by default, but you can enable it from the Screen options if you need it.
From this page you can also add a new vendor and edit the current ones.
Add a new vendor
The entire process of creating a vendor will be managed through a wizard in steps. Click on the + Add new vendor button.
Step 1 – Account info
From this view, you can choose the user who is responsible for the store. You can either select an existing user or directly create a new user profile from this page.
Step 2 – Store info
Here you can add all the vendor store info:
- vendor profile image / logo (in the following image, it’s the logo over the header image)
- vendor header image
- store name
- store slug
- address and contact info
- VAT number
- phone number
- store email address
- store description
- company legal notes
This is an example of how a vendor’s store page looks like:
Step 3 – Additional info
Here you can add the vendor’s social info:
Step 4 – Payment info
Here you can enter the vendor’s payment info that will be available in the vendor’s details.
- Account name
- SWIFT / BIC
- PayPal email
Step 5 – Options
Here you can override some of the general options related to this specific vendor.
Commission base: choose whether to use the default commission rate (that you can set up from the → Commissions settings page) or set a custom one for this vendor.
For example, you may want to override the default commission settings that is set to 80% and make sure that this vendor gets a 50%.
Skip admin review: enable this option to allow this vendor to publish new products without the admin’s review. This option overrides the default one set on the → Vendors permissions page.
Allow vendor to set featured products: enable this option to allow this vendor to manage featured products and set some of his/her products as featured.
Edit a vendor’s account details
Once your vendor is created you can edit some of the details at any time by simply clicking on the pencil icon.
Additionally, you can also see a new Staff tab, where you see all the staff members added by the vendor to his/her shop. The admin cannot change these settings, but the vendor can do that from the Vendor staff module.
