Select “Auto approval settings” according to your requirement and automate the approval settings by enabling them. Like:
- Seller Approval: If you don’t want to approve manually each seller then enable the field “Seller Approval”.
- Product Approval: If you don’t want to approve seller’s every product manually then enable the field “Product Approval”.
- Auto Quantity: If you don’t want to approve seller’s product quantity manually then enable the field “Auto Quantity”.
- Internal Category: Set “internal category”, this will act as a default category for all marketplace products but it can be overridden by seller according to his requirement if the seller is assigned with the right to change product internal category. In case a product has no defined category then this internal category is counted as its category.
- Warehouse/location: Set “Warehouse/location”, this will act as default “warehouse” and “location” for all marketplace sellers but it can also be overridden for the individual seller.
- Product variants: By enabling “Product variants”, the admin will allow a seller to manage their product attributes and variants.

You can set the default payment terms for the sellers.
- Commission: Using “commission” field admin can set the commission provided to a seller in the form of a percentage. This percentage commission will be globally applied to every seller.
- Amount limit: Set “amount limit” field, which helps admin to set the amount limit for seller payment request.
Let say amount limit declared by admin is 500. A seller can’t request his payment unless his sale amount reaches to 500. It is must to have a minimum sale of 500 to make a payment request.
- Minimum Gap: Admin can set “minimum gap” i.e the minimum gap between two consecutive seller payment request and that will be in the number of days.
Let say admin set the minimum gap of 4 days then the seller can only request for payment after the interval of 4 days to the previous payment. Now, let say admin set the commission 10% for sellers with the amount limit 500 and a minimum gap of 4 days. The seller can request his payment i.e 10% of his commission after the amount limit ≥ 500 and there is a gap of 4 days between current and previous request.
In this situation there can be three cases which could be encountered:
If the previous request is pending seller can’t request the new payment request.
To make the seller payment request amount limit must be ≥ greater than or equal to set amount i.e 500.
Only after minimum gap fulfillment, the next payment request can be made by the seller i.e only after 4 days seller can request for his next payment.
