    Product Updates: Multivendor Marketplace for Shopify

    We keep on updating the Multivendor Marketplace app for Shopify to make it even more desirable. Bookmark this blog to check the product updates for the app!

    Hide Product Tag Field

    You can now hide the “Product Tag” field from the “Add/Edit Product” form. For this, You need to visit the multi-vendor admin panel>>Configurations>>Product Configuration>>Enable the Tab.

    Once you enable this tab, you/sellers won’t get the product tag field while adding a product.

    Note:- In case you add/edit products by CSV, make sure that the “Restrict Product Tags” is disabled.

    Product Form Help Text

    Add help text to product form labels for both admin & seller end.

    Visit Multivendor Admin Panel > Configuration > Product Configuration. Enable this tab:

    Now, to add the help text, visit Multivendor Admin Panel > Products > Product Form Customization. Add the help text and save:

    Note these points:

    • Product form customization is valid only for normal and digital product and it does not include Global Products.
    • It will not affect product CSV format.

    This is how they will look on the add product page (both admin & seller end):

    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.

    ALLOW SELLER TO SET MINIMUM PURCHASE QUANTITY PER PRODUCT

    From this option, you can allow the seller to set a minimum purchase quantity for products. This way, the customers will get restricted to buy the set number of quantity for the respective products.

    To configure this, visit:

    Multivendor admin panel > Configuration > Products Configuration:

    Now, while adding products to the marketplace (admin panel or seller panel), you’ll get the option to set quantity. Refer:

    SHOPIFY-MULTIVENDOR PRODUCT SYNC

    If you make any changes to your products from Shopify end, you need to sync the products each time with the app to reflect the updates made at the multivendor end too.

    It is advisable to make any changes in the products at the multivendor end because this way the products get auto-updated at Shopify too. But not vice-versa.

    Let’s see the syncing process.

    To sync a single product, go to multivendor admin panel > products > product listing > edit the product like so:

    Now, on the redirected page, click on more actions > sync product. Refer:

    Bulk Sync Process:

    Go to multivendor admin panel > products > product listing > select the products you want to sync > from bulk action, click on sync selected.

    Sync Orders Updates

    When an item is purchased from your Shopify store, the inventory will only be synced with the app if the item is assigned to any seller registered on your marketplace. Now, to get the orders fetched into the app, you need to click the Sync Orders button and sync your Shopify orders with the app.

    PRODUCT TYPE, PRODUCT TAG & COLLECTION AT SELLER PANEL

    Now, the sellers have the following menus in their multivendor seller panel: Product Type, Product Tag & Collections.

    Multivendor Seller Panel > Products:

    Moreover, sellers will also have an option to export product tags, types & collections.

    Example: Multivendor Seller Panel > Products > Collections

    EDIT IMAGE ALT TEXT

    In our new updates, while editing products on Multi-Vendor Marketplace, the admin/seller will get an option to add alt text to the product images.

    ALT text is basically your image description. Google bots examine these descriptions and rank them accordingly. Thus, they help a lot with SEO.

    For this, visit Multi-Vendor Marketplace Admin/Seller Panel > Products > Product Listing > Edit Product:

    Click on Edit Image:

    Hover over the image and then click on ALT:

    Now enter the ALT text and save.

    Similarly, you add alt text to multiple images of a product.

    IMPORT PRODUCTS FROM SHOPIFY

    By enabling the import product button from the product section of the configuration, and then visiting the imported product from Shopify from the main menu will enable the user to import the product either by selecting the period and entering to and from the date or it can be imported by uploading a CSV.

    Important Note: All of these imported products will be visible on the product section only after the products are assigned by admin to any seller.

    PRODUCT FORM CUSTOMIZATION

    With this section, you can hide/unhide the components of product form.
    Click on Product Form Customization from the main menu of the app and select the products you want to remove from the add product page.
