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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
