This extension allows the admin to provide the functionality to have a separate vendor sub-domain for the opencart marketplace vendors . The separate vendor domain will work for – profile, category, compare, manufacturer, product, search, and the special pages. This means that the customer can access these pages via the vendor profile page under the seller sub-domain.
**Note: This extension is an add-on to the Webkul’s Opencart Marketplace Multi-Vendor module. You must first install Webkul’s Opencart Marketplace Multi-Vendor module to make use of this extension.

The extracted folder has admin, catalog, and ocmod folders. You need to transfer the admin and catalog folders into the Opencart root directory on the server as shown below.
Once you have uploaded the folders, Navigate to Extensions> Extension Installer and upload the XML file. The XML file can be found on ocmod folder under module directory. In the ocmod folder select the Opencart version you are using under which you will find wkvendordomain.ocmod.xml file.
