    This is a way of communication between Seller and Admin for Seller’s query.

    Seller Order Notification Mail Template

    In the Marketplace Module, if an order is placed and its invoice is created then the seller will receive product sold notification mail with their product details.

    For example, if an order is placed with three products (A, B, C) of Seller (x,y,z) respectively. So when order invoice will be created then sellers (X, Y, Z) will receive an email for their products (A, B, C respectively) with order details.

    How to Use Advanced Pricing in Multi-Vendor Marketplace?

    The advanced pricing can be said as the special price offered to a specific group of customers. Also, advanced pricing can be implemented on simple, virtual, downloadable, and bundle products.

    Advanced pricing data is synchronized with product pages. For example, if you update a tier price quantity, the system updates the value on the product page.

    • In the admin end, the advance pricing can be set on the product. For this,
    • The admin needs to open the product in edit mode.
    • After which under Price we have Advanced Price, where we can set
        • Special Price(along with the date of validity)
        • Tier Price

    How To Make Tier Price Visible On Seller End?

    Certainly, the Tier Price is a major component of Advance Pricing which gives the customer the advantage of receiving the discount on the basis of the quantity purchased.

    That is, you offer a quantity discount on a product listing or product page in the storefront. However, the discount can be applied to a specific store view or customer group.

    Extended Functionality- The Module is having an additional feature which enable the seller to have a facility to set tier price for the product for the specific group of people too.

    This could be achieved by Custom Attribute Marketplace Add-on, we can simply go to Custom Attributes in the admin panel.

    Also, the admin can select the ‘tier_price’ attribute and under Action drop-down, click on ‘Show In Front‘.

    Now, the attribute Tier Price could be seen on seller front when we open the product in edit mode.

    Note- In order, to have the functionality of Tier Pricing in Seller end you must have the add-on, Custom Attribute Marketplace Add-on
