WCMp v3.1.0 has introduced a very new feature: Vendor Management System – You will get an overall view of all your vendors irrespective of their role/status under the Vendors submenu in WCMp Settings.
Quick actions that can be taken from here ( Vendor’s status: Approved ):
Actions you can take if the vendor is waiting for your approval to sell on site ( Vendor’s status: Pending )
Actions you can take if you reject a vendor’s application ( Vendor’s status: Rejected ):
Details you can see if you suspend a vendor from selling on your site ( Vendor’s status: Suspended ):
Actions you can take if you suspend a vendor from selling on your site ( Vendor’s status: Suspended ):
Note: Remember to leave the Password field blank, if you do not want to change the vendor’s login password.
Note: The Timezone field is disabled, to prevent the admin from changing the time settings. This can only be edited by the vendor.
In this case, you can only view the vendor’s application and the notes added previously (if any). Additionally, you can add a note again and then choose to Approve/ Reject the vendor. If approved, the note will not be displayed on the frontend while if the vendor is rejected, the note will be displayed on the vendor’s dashboard.
In this case, you can only view the vendor’s application and the notes added previously (if any).
Since suspending would mean, you are denying access to an active vendor, you can therefore see the same details that you could see for an approved vendor. You can then again return the vendor his/her former glory by just clicking on Activate
Previously, WCMp denied access to the vendor dashboard, if the vendor had been rejected or was not yet approved i.e. the vendor was left to a Pending status whereas for a Blocked vendor, the dashboard was completely accessible, but the products of that vendor would never show up on the shop page.
From WCMp version 3.1.0, WCMp allows access to the dashboard for all vendor statuses – either full or limited, depending on the status.
Gets full access to the Vendor Dashboard, unless set otherwise using settings or using custom coding.
An approved vendor can also change his basic user details from Profile Management under the user dropdown. Changing these (email and password) will change the vendor’s login credentials as well.
Gets limited access to the vendor dashboard. The vendor can access all the links provided in the vendor dashboard but will be shown a suspension notice stating, “Your account has been suspended by the admin due to some suspicious activity. Please contact your admin for further information.“, everytime, he/she tries to access any links. Moreover, the vendor’s shop page will display “Site Administrator has blocked this vendor” notice and all the vendor’s products will no longer be available for people to buy.
Gets limited ( rather no access ) to the vendor dashboard. The vendor upon successful registration ( if manually approve vendors is checked in WCMp settings ), is assigned a pending vendor role, and is redirected to the WCMp Vendor Dashboard page which displays the message “Congratulations! You have successfully applied as a Vendor. Please wait for further notifications from the admin.” and all other Dashboard Links remains inaccessible.
Gets limited ( rather no access ) to the vendor dashboard. The vendor, if rejected by the admin, is shown this message: “We have reviewed your application. Unfortunately, you are not the right fit with us at this time.” and also the notes added by the admin (if any) in a timeline format. However, a rejected vendor can reapply, by clicking on Resubmit Application, this will redirect the vendor to a page, where they can update their previously submitted details and then apply again.
