What the plugin does
Extends the functionality on the WooCommerce/YITH WooCommerce Multi Vendor/Marketplace plugins to allow administrators to lock down categories to individual vendor’s products.
How can you benefit from this
- Restrict top level categories to a specific Vendor;
- Manage vendor’s shop stores products more efficiently by creating a top level category that allows only their products to be added.
- Create universal categories where all vendors can add products, great for online market campaigns and product listings
- Manage individual shop stores more efficiently on a single domain
When building a multi vendor online marketplace on the WordPress platform we have found over the years that product category management for the marketplace administrator can be very difficult at times trying to control which vendors can add which products to which categories. Lets give you an example, vendor A has their own category they add their products to which presents their online shop store and vendor B has their own category which represents their own shop store. At the moment there is now way to stop vendor A from adding to Vendor B’s category and vis versa, this can cause a major headache for the marketplace administrator. With this plugin you can lock down a category to a vendor allowing only their products to be added to that category, giving greater control and flexibility to your online marketplace.
You can also do the opposite and make a category universal and allow all vendors on your marketplace to add their products to. This is a great way to create quick fire campaigns and advertise vendors products to your customer base.
