WCMp Vendor Vacation

Brief Illustration

WCMp Vendor Vacation extension allows the vendors to manage their orders even during their vacation. Vendors can also enjoy the flexibility of deciding their opening and closing hours for situations where orders can’t be taken after a specified time eg: Online Bakery stores ( after which vendors might need time to prepare the orders ) or a shipment firm ( after which the orders can’t be delivered on the same day ). All this and more, with no admin’s configuration required at all.
