Customize seller login URL: Multi-Vendor Marketplace for Shopify

Updated 8 December 2020

In this documentation, we’ll find out how the admin can customize the seller login URL/seller subdomain for Multi-Vendor Marketplace App for Shopify.

Steps to customize seller login URL:

  • Log in to your web hosting service. Here, we’ll take an example of GoDaddy.
    After login, go to My Products section and then click on DNS as shown in the image below.
DNS
  • You need to create a C-Name and map to this URL store-name.sp-seller.webkul.com (example: multivendor-marketplace.sp-seller.webkul.com)

Like your Shopify store URL is xyz.myshopify.com then you need to create CName entry as mentioned below:
HOST: seller
Points to: xyz.sp-seller.webkul.com
TTL: 1 hour

cname
Step: 1
nameserver
Step: 2

Note: Make sure that the Proxy Status= Proxied while creating the C-Name. Refer:

proxied

Now, once this is done, the URL won’t work instantly. You need to inform us. We will make the edits from our end and then it will start working.

In case you are unable to do so, you can provide us the hosting login details like GoDaddy, Bluehost, etc. and we will do it for you.

Firstly, you need to create an account on Cloudflare. (It’s free!)

Create Account: https://dash.cloudflare.com/sign-up

Now, you need to add your site by clicking on +Add a Site, if the site is already added, it will be visible either in Active or Pending state:

If in a pending state, click on the site & you will be redirected to the following page. Here, you will have steps to complete the nameserver setup. For this, login to your web hosting service, remove the given nameservers (upper highlighted box in the image below) with the Couldflare’s nameserver (lower highlighted box in the image below).

Note: Once you move to the Cloudflare and add the site to make it active, kindly check for the seller’s entry in your DNS. If there is no entry for the same, add it manually.

Make sure SSL/TLS encryption mode is set to be flexible. Set this under: SSL/TLS > Your Shop > Account > Cloudflare – Web Performance & Security:

SSL/TLS | localllama.shop | Account | Cloudflare - Web Performance & Security

Lastly, you need to create two Page Rules. For that, click on the Page Rules menu as shown in the image below:
