    Prestashop Marketplace Manufacturer/Brand

    A manufacturer (brand) is an identity of the product. Most people, whether they know the exact name of the product or not, they at least ask for a product by the brand. That’s the significance of a brand for any product. That’s why we are here with the Prestashop Marketplace Manufacturer/Brand module.

    Now, with this module, sellers can also create their brands/manufacturers & assign them to their products. It will help them to manage the details of their brand on their own. After adding their own brand to the shop, they can assign to a new/existing product anytime.
