Setting up – Assign Single Product to Multiple Vendors

This feature lets multiple vendors sell the same product. For example, iPhone X launches in the market and it will have the same look and features irrespective of which vendor sells it. Say, if “Vendor A” has already contributed to the specifications and detailing of iPhone X, “Vendor B” can just enter in the name and the features (previously entered by Vendor A) get copied to this product while “Vendor B” can add in, remove or edit the details as well. This makes his work easier and faster.
From the customer perspective, this allows them to get a brief comparison of the same product sold by different vendors and make a better choice from the available options.

Enable Single product Multiple Vendors on your Website

If you haven’t enabled the box for Single Product Multiple Vendors in the Admin Setup Wizard itself (Reference 1), you will have to navigate to Settings under WCMp menu and then check the box for Single Product Multiple Vendors under the General Tab (Reference 2).

Sell a pre-existing product (By the Vendor)

Sell a pre-existing simple product from the Vendor Frontend Dashboard
