Setting up FPM is as easy as pie. As Admin, you got the option to allow or disapprove backend access for your vendors. Go to WCMp -> Settings, under General you will see “Disallow vendors wp-admin access” checkbox. Enabling it will disallow vendors to access WordPress backend.

Additionally FPM installs 4 new pages to your vendor dashboard, settings related to those can be found from Settings -> Vendor tab under Vendor Pages section (see images below).
