With Multivendor Marketplace for Shopify, you can convert your e-commerce store to a Marketplace where many sellers/vendors are registered and upload their products. Let’s have a look at the Seller Guide for this app.
In the app, the sellers/vendors need to either create an account on the store on their own or the admin/store owner can add them and create their account.
This is a basic Seller guide for the Sellers on your Marketplace.
There are certain steps that the seller needs to follow :
- Sign up/Login to the Seller Account.
- If the Seller has signup then wait for account approval from the Admin.
- Once approved, the seller can start uploading the products.
- Products also need to be approved by the Admin.
- Once approved, the products will be available on the Shopify Store.
- The seller needs to add the payment details to which he wish to receive the order payments.
- The seller can contact the Admin in case of an issue.
Seller Login/Sign up:
The seller/vendor needs to sign up on the store or log in to access the account.
The seller will be provided a URL from the admin, which you can use to signup/login. Or sellers can do it from the link on the admin Shopify store.
This the signup/login page for the seller.
To start adding products to the store, the seller needs to register/log in.
This is the view of the seller dashboard once the seller has successfully logged in.
The seller can have an idea of the products, orders, commission (admin share in the order), etc by just looking at the dashboard.
The Seller can manage the invoice and all the other configuration (if enabled from the admin).
Here is the screenshot of the invoice configuration that will be sent from the seller to the customer.

Under this menu- products >> product listing, all the product-related information will be there and the product can be edited, viewed and deleted from here :
Further, from the “bulk edit” option in the above screenshot, the seller can bulk edit the products and can add the products via CSV file to the app
