WooCommerce B2B Marketplace Vendor Subdomain module allows the vendors to have their own subdomain or domain and the module creates URLs for each vendor’s page under the vendor’s subdomain or domain.
Let’s say your website has the domain abc.com which maps to some IP address X.X.X.X. This server has a Webserver running whose document root is pointing to Woocommerce files and directories.
Furthermore, if you want to allow vendors to have their own subdomain or domain which can be accessed by the customers directly for purchasing products, then follow the steps below:
Let’s presume you want to facilitate a vendor (with keyword new seller) to use a subdomain for its products.
1. DNS panel entry:
1). Create an A entry in your DNS panel for newseller.abc.com and map it to your server IP address X.X.X.X
2). Ping and check if newseller.abc.com is resolving to the mapped IP address or not.
2). Configuring Web Servers :
Once DNS entry has been done, then configure your webserver to complete the subdomain configuration process.
Configuring Apache Web Server:
Add entries in /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf as:
ServerAdmin [email protected]
Configuring Nginx Web Server:
Add entries in /etc/nginx/sites-available/default as:
index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;
## Add rest of the Nginx Configuration here ##
3). Now hit the URL newseller.abc.com on the browser and check if everything’s working properly or not.
The admin configures the Seller Domain under Domain Redirection Settings. The domain is visible on the frontend, for example, here- ” https://demostore1.wcdemo.webkul.com/b2b-marketplace-supplier-sub-domain/product/Casual-printed-women-multicolor-top”. This URL is being displayed on the URL tab.
Moreover, the admin sets Enable Subdomain as Enable and Enable Domain is as Disable from the backend.
Then only products that belong to the seller, selected by the buyer, shall be displayed on the “SHOP” page.
Here, in the image below, the customer has selected the “Woo T-shirt” which belongs to the seller “Doe Shop”. So, we can see the subdomain URL. This URL belongs to “Doe Shop” which is different from the URL when the Domain name is set as Enable.
