How to add digital products?

To add a digital product, go to Multivendor Marketplace Seller Panel > Products > Product Listing > Add Product:

Product Seller • Multivendor MarketPlace

Choose the product as digital:

In the Add Digital Product section; upload your digital product file (the file should be less than or equal to 100 MBs), enter the number of accessible days for which your customers can access it & enter the number of downloads allowed. (By default, the value is equal to zero which means unlimited access & downloading)

Furthermore, in the Inventory Details section, mark this option if you have variants for this digital product:

Checking this option will open a Variant Details section where you can add variants to this digital product:

Note: Variants can also be added after saving the product and while editing it. The option to upload digital files to individual variants will only be present once you’ll save this product and edit it.

As explained above, save the product and then you can upload digital files to individual products:

The added product will be listed in the Multivendor Marketplace Seller/Admin Panel > Products > Product Listing.

Digital Product As Service

The admin can now have the option to add digital product as service in the Multi-vendor App.

In this case, both you & your sellers can directly create & sell digital products without uploading the digital files. Instead, both can upload digital files after the order is placed for the digital product.

First, the admin needs to enable the configuration.

  • Go to the Configuration menu of the app.
  • Visit the Product Configuration.
  • Enable the “ADD DIGITAL PRODUCT AS SERVICE” tab.
ADD DIGITAL PRODUCT AS SERVICE

As soon as the admin enabled this tab, the option starts getting reflected in the admin & seller’s Edit Product sections respectively.

While adding/editing digital products, you can enable the “ADD DIGITAL PRODUCT AS SERVICE” option. This action will disable the rest of the options (upload file, no of accessible days) for that digital product.
