    Multivendor Marketplace for Shopify: Stock Management (New Theme)

    In the Multivendor Marketplace app for Shopify: Stock Management feature app, the Admin can manage the product stock from his sellers. Admin can track the shipment while the seller has the choice to select who will fulfill the order, the admin or the seller.

    To get this app, you have to pay 10$ (USD) per month over and above the monthly charges of the Multivendor Marketplace App.

    Features

    • Admin can manage the product stock from his seller/vendor.
    • Admin can accept or reject the fulfillment request from sellers.
    • On fulfillment request acceptance by the admin, the seller will send product quantity but cannot update the product quantity on his own.
    • On fulfillment request rejection by the admin, the workflow of the app will be the same as the multivendor marketplace.
    • Admin and seller both at their end can view the list of the accepted and rejected products in the app.
    • Customers can see who has fulfilled the order on the product page.
    • Compatible with the Partial Fulfillment feature.

    Let’s see how to Activate the stock management feature app

    Go to the feature app section and click on enable as shown in the screenshot below:

    Once the charge is approved, the app is enabled and can be used.

    To use the app, you need to copy the below line of code and paste it in the ‘product.liquid’ file template (or product-template, if exist) to display the fulfillment information on the storefront (product description page).

    <div id="wk_ff_service" style="margin:15px 0; clear:both;">
        <input id="productid" type="hidden" value="{{ product.id }}">
    </div>

    Once the code is added, the customer can see the information if the product is fulfilled by the admin or the seller.

    Admin end

    Once the featured app Stock Management is enabled then in configuration menu one new menu will be added:

    • Fulfillment Configuration

    On the Fulfilment Configuration page, the admin needs to add labels and logos to make it visible on the product description page.

    Moreover, in this configuration three more following dropdown options will appear for product fulfillment: –

    1. FULFILLMENT BY ADMIN

    2. FULFILLMENT BY SELLER

    3. FULFILLMENT BY BOTH – When you choose this option, one more dropdown named Fulfilled by In case of both will appear in which we can choose ALLOW SELLERS TO FULFILLED THE ORDERS OF THEIR PRODUCTS or ALLOW SELLERS TO CHOOSE THE SPECIFIC FULFILLMENT OPTION FOR THEIR PRODUCTS.
    If you choose “ALLOW SELLERS TO CHOOSE THE SPECIFIC FULFILLMENT OPTION FOR THEIR PRODUCTS.” then one more dropdown will appear called Choose Fulfillment On Old Products. in which we can select SELF FULFILLMENT and FULFILLMENT BY ADMIN

    fulfill-1-1

    Points To Be Noted:-

    • As per the Shipping Cost Distribution Configuration (Payment Configuration):- If the admin will fulfill any respective product’s order then the admin will get the shipping cost. If the seller will fulfill any respective product’s order then the shipping cost goes to the seller.
    • In case of specific product fulfillment, if the admin fulfills any product’s order from Shopify then, the complete order fulfillment will be managed by the admin only from Shopify end.

    Fulfillment Request

    You will have the Fulfillment Request menu on sellers menu as shown in the screenshot below:

    When you click on the Fulfilment configuration, you will get the option to choose who will fulfill the product for the customer.

    The seller can select whether he/she wants to fulfill the products on his own or wants the admin to fulfill the products.

    In the case of Self-Fulfillment:

    Once the seller selects the Self-fulfillment service, the seller needs to upload a fulfillment logo to show it to the customers on the product description page and save the settings.

    Thus, the seller will fulfill the products on his own in this case.

    In Case of Fulfillment by admin:

    The seller can simply select the service and proceed to send the desired product quantity to the admin for fulfillment.

    Go to edit product page, set a product quantity and send it to admin for fulfillment.

    How the seller sends products to the merchant

    PLEASE NOTE:-

    If the admin has enabled the Multilocation Inventory Feature & added multiple locations then, the admin can receive the product quantity at any of the locations except custom fulfillment service location.

    If the seller selects the Self Fulfillment service then the products will be fulfilled at the seller’s default location.

    Send to Merchant

    You can also enable the “Send to merchant” configuration in the case of “Fulfilled by both” and “Fulfilled by Admin”.

    This configuration will allow the seller to send the ordered product to the admin and then they can manage the fulfillment upon receiving the product from the seller.
