    How to Install Opencart Marketplace Module?
    Opencart Marketplace Admin Catalog Setting
    Opencart Marketplace- General Setting Configuration
    Opencart Marketplace- Landing Page Setting

    Installation

    Installation Process –

    Customers will get a zip folder for installing the module. They will unzip this folder on their system and choose their  version according to the Opencart version that you want to install.

    For example:

    1. If the customer wants to install the Opencart Marketplace Version 2.3.x.x , there are four folders inside this folder version 2.3.x.x namely- admin, catalog, ocmod & theme patch. To install this module version, first you need to transfer the admin & catalog folders into the Opencart root folder on the server.
    2. If you are installing the OpenCart Marketplace version 3.x.x.x then there are 5 folders inside it and that are – admin, catalog, image, system, and theme patch. Here, the admin will have to transfer the admin, catalog, image, and the system folders into the Opencart root folder on the server.

    After transferring the folders, use extension installer for uploading the XML files – marketplace1.ocmod.xml, marketplace2.ocmod.xml, and Marketplaceforseo.ocmod.xml which you will find in ocmod folder.

    If you are using a custom theme like Journal then we provide Journal theme patch (directory) in the module zip. While installing the module, navigate through Theme Patch->and click on the Journal folder and you will get “Catalog” folder. Just upload the “Catalog” folder into your Opencart Root Directory for the proper functioning of the Module with the Journal Theme.

    After transferring the folders, use extension installer to install the XML files which is situated inside the ocmod ->journal2 folder (marketplace1.ocmod.xml, marketplace2.ocmod.xml, and Marketplaceforseo.ocmod.xml).
    Similarly, you can also install the Opencart Version 2.2.x.x

    Note:
    If you are using a custom theme(Like Journal2) then you need to navigate through ocmod folder>Journal2 and select the files present there – marketplace1.ocmod, marketplace2.ocmod, and Marketplaceforseo.ocmd only.

    After uploading the file go to the Extensions -> Modification and click on refresh field.

    After that in Admin panel go to System -> Users -> User Group and edit ‘Administrator’ and choose select all for both Access and Modify Permission and save it.

    Now, navigate through Extensions -> Extensions->Modules->Marketplace and install the Marketplace module by tapping the Install button  on the right-hand side.

    Note :

    • For Opencart 2.2.x.x & below versions – You need to navigate to Extension > Modules
    • For Opencart 2.3.x.x & above versions – You need to navigate to Extensions ->Extensions -> Modules

    Layout Settings

    To set the layout, the admin will navigate to Design ->Layout.

    For Account Layout Marketplace

    Here, edit the Account layout by tapping the edit button in front of the Account layout under the Action column.

    Tapping the edit button brings up the section to set the layout for the marketplace account menu. Under the Column Right select Marketplace and Account as shown below in the snapshot.

    For Product Layout Marketplace

    Navigate through Design ->Layout and tap the edit for the Product layout.

    Tapping the edit button brings up the section to set the layout for the Price Alert and Superbar menu. Under the Content Bottom section, select Price Alert and superbar.

    Translation – Module

    As this Multi Vendor Marketplace module supports multiple languages. So, this section will describe how to make the module work in different languages. Please check this link for language translation.

    Translation – Arabic

    Step 1: Download the free Arabic language pack from the Opencart extension directory. Any language pack that isn’t English needs to be uploaded to Opencart, after Opencart Installation, using an FTP client like FileZilla.

    Step 2: Open the downloaded zip file and unzip it on your system. Now upload the admin and catalog folders into the Opencart root folder on the server.

    Step 3: Now login to your Opencart admin panel with your admin credentials. For adding a new language navigate to System->Localization->languages and click on the “Add” button. Here you will see the below-shown page where you will have to fill all the mandatory fields with the language(Arabic) information.

    In order to get all language information please check the readme.txt file included in the language pack archive you have downloaded. After entering all the mandatory fields, click the save button to save the language.

    Step 4: Now to change the language for the backend panel and the Frontend, navigate to System -> Settings ->Local. Under the local menu tab, set the language(this changes the frontend language) as Arabic and set the administration language(this changes the backend admin panel language) to Arabic.

    Step 5: The next major issue is, how to translate a module that is built on the multi-language paradigm. If the module is following language pattern for any module then it must have language files.

    If the module has language files for English and you want to translate them into Arabic, then at the very first copy all the language files from English language directory and paste all of them into the Arabic directory in the same structure as it was in the English language.

    For example, there is a file in module directory for the English language called foo.php then copy this into the module directory of the Arabic language. Suppose English file has these keywords to be translated as below screenshot.

    Without Translation:

    With Translation:

    After doing above changes, when you’ll change the language from the front end then, the page will be translated into Arabic language only for those keywords that exist in language file only.

      Hello Siddharth,
      Thanks for purchasing our product.
      I would like to tell you that from the front-end only the vendor can create an account. For creating the seller account, the person just need to during filling the personal information in the fields, select the radio button as “Yes” for a field ” Do You Want To Become A Seller / Vendor?” and they can simply click on “Create account” button.
