Product Re-Approve feature
Now, once a seller edits a product, the admin can approve/disapprove the updates before they become live on the storefront.
Configure this by visiting Multivendor Admin Panel > Configuration > Product Configuration:
Now, whenever a seller updates a product, the admin will receive an email to approve it. If the admin disapproves, he need to mention the reason for disapproval.
Note that on disapproving, only the product updates will disapprove and not the whole product. Also, the admin needs to manually check what all updates the seller has done.
This will be the status of the product on both admin and seller end:
If the admin disapproves, he need to mention a reason for the same:
Once approved, the product updates will become live on the storefront.
NOTE: In case the admin saves the product after going on the edit product page, the product will get approved.
Product Update by CSV
Now, the admin/sellers can edit products in bulk. All you have to do is visit Multivendor Admin Panel > Products > Product Listing > More Actions > Add product via CSV
In method 1, you just need to upload the updated/edited CSV file. Make sure in the CSV file that you are uploading, the Product IDs are the same as that of the existing products you are trying to update. If the product IDs don’t match, the existing products will not be updated and new products will be created.
ALLOW SELLERS TO SET THE PRODUCT PRICE TO ZERO
The admin can allow his/her sellers to create products with product price being zero. In that case, the product will become a free product. You can configure it by visiting: Multivendor admin panel > Configuration > Products Configuration:
Note: No commission will be calculated on free product and if you have set fixed commission, this feature won’t work with Display Sales Price.
Also, this feature will only work if you have set fixed commission and not % or anything else.
