Configuring the Module
Once the module is installed, Admin needs to configure the module from here:
The configuration section has two parts :
- Seller can assign Admin Manufacturers : This configuration will give sellers the authority to be able to assign admin created manufacturers to their own products. If its yes, then the seller can assign the manufacturers added by the admin. If its no, then only the manufacturers added by the seller will be visible and can be assigned.
- Manufacturer needs to be approved by Admin : This configuration decides whether manufacturers added by seller should be approved automatically or manually by admin.
This way the module is configured successfully.
After installing and configuring the manufacturer module successfully, Sellers can see manufacturer menu on their current marketplace account page.
From the “Create Manufacturer” link, Sellers can add a new manufacturer.
Seller needs to fill in all the details of the Manufacturer on create new manufacturer form page. Seller will select the products to which this particular manufacturer is to be assigned.
