  1. Product Vendor Reporting

    Product Vendor Reporting currently is not really useful if you have 20 or 30 vendors and you are selling regularly.

    1. When a vendor themselves is logged into the frontend of the website and looking at their My-Account page and you have [product_vendors_total_earnings] and [product_vendors_month_earnings] on the page you can see some simple reports on the screen with 3 columns as you know. The first crucial column to add to this is Date, this should be on screen here in these simple reports as vendors need to know immediately the date of the order, right now they do not know…

      We’re definitely looking into updating the reporting and we’re chatting to several store owners to see what they need.

      • Product Vendors - See, process and complete their own orders

        I really need the vendors to see, process and complete their own orders.

        They should not be able to see the other vendors' orders!

        • Allow Vendors add New Users to the User Section of WordPress and See their own Users

          This feature request is most definitely for Product Vendors and WooCommerce Bookings working together more seamlessly and I am wondering if others need the same thing. Currently WooCommerce Bookings does 'work' with Product Vendors and its a big improvement on the first version albeit a little limited and I do understand from speaking to the great team and woo that product vendors currently is more suited to physical products. However typically service providers who need a booking system in a marketplace type scenario will want to use one booking calendar to organise their week/month/year of bookings.

          1. A simple scenario…

          • Product Vendors 2.0+ - Allow easier editing of registration form [wcpv_registration]

            Most sites would want to customise the vendor registration form to collect specific information on sign up.

            Prefered payment methods, company information, documents , id and many others

            It would be great to easily edit this from from the back end a back end editor or integrate with any of the other wordpress form builders.

            • Product Vendors 2.0+ - Commission Payments - Paypal Adaptive Payments

              Enable the use of adaptive payments and other methods for commission payouts to vendors.

              This would allow significant costs saving in terms of processing fees.

              i.e
              My understanding with mass payments in the following:

              1) Customer Pays $100 Paypal 4% (int purch) fee $4 + fee 30c
              2) I get $95.7
              3) I pay supplier $85 2% fees $1.7+ 30c
              4) My cut is $9.70

              Total Fees $6:30

              With Chained / Adaptive payments i would cost: 3.4% + 30c or $3.70

              The vendor would get $82.11
              I would get $14.19

              As per the above i end up with $4.49 more…

              • Vendors 2.0+ Coupons, Deposit and Commsion

                Hi when calculating commissions and discounts the options need to be expanded for example.

                1 - Coupons should have the option to apply to the total checkout prices, and not only applied to the amount paid at the time of check out.

                The way it works now is, if i apply i coupon, and they pay a 15% deposit, they are only given a discount on the deposit.

                2 - Allow people to have coupon / discount amount to be deducted from the deposit amount to be paid or the remaining balance to be paid

                3 - Commissions, option to…

                • Product Vendors 2.0+ - Enable more commission Calculation options

                  I want to be able to choose how commissions are calculated, depending on the payment options chosen.

                  Currently its a one size fits all,

                  For example - A user wants to pay a 15% deposit and 85% on delivery.

                  The 15% is my cut and commission on the sale, the 85% is the vendor's, which they collect direct or on delivery etc

                  I want to only pay out a commission when i collect 100% of the payment.

                  To make this work we would need the options to turn off commissions when certain payment methods are selected at check out.

                  • Product Vendors 2.0+ Product options and usability / front end

                    When using product vendors for a marketplace with some of the following plugins, (Woocommerce, Woo Bookings, WP Job Manager etc) some of the product options may not be required.

                    I.e Shipping, Advanced etc

                    It would be great if there were options where it was possible to enable or disable functions so that the back end interface was much cleaner.

                    Generally the bookable product options are confusing for a first time user / vendor, and it would be great if this was reviewed.

                    OR even better it would be great to have a front end interface which worked like job manager…

                      • Product vendor plugin would be useless without 2 functions

                        1. vendors can receive the new order notice.

                        Add a function that New order notice can be sent to vendors' email when a client place an order for the vendor's product.


                        2. Vendors can see orders belonged to them.
                        In wordpress CMS, a Vendor can both edit their products and view all orders related to his products.

                        • Product Vendors ideas

                          I just wanted to get some ideas out. I really like the potential of the Product Vendors plugin and I would love to see it grow. In order of importance:

                          1. The use of HTML and shortcodes in the vendor description. I would really like to personalize the vendor page. For example with an image of the vendor.

                          2. Commission King has an option to make a commission payable after X days. This is really useful if you are working with a return-period for the buyer (IE 14 days in the Netherlands)

                          3. An option to hide certain vendors in…

                          • Multi-Vendor Rating

                            Our business would benefit from an addition of a vendor rating system, whereby a Vendor's rating would be shown on the Vendor's Page, and on every product page shown by the Vendor. It also be of use if after a customer makes a purchase, a chron job email is sent to the customer asking them to rate the vendor or vendors from which they purchased.

                            Customers would also ideally be able to sort Vendors by rating.

                                Within the vendor shipping we have the link across to the per product shipping so we can set shipping per product but where one or more products is purchased on a vendor it makes the shipping very expensive and possibly turns away customers. Would it be a good thing to have a per vendor shipping option so vendors can say that they will ship all their products for a single price (similar to the way that Not on the hight street have their shipping?)? I'm giving it three votes but I'm bias :)

                                  Firstly I’m complaining about the Woothemes claim of offering an Etsy like solution. Its not the extension its the claim I’m unhappy about. I think the claim is wrong and I hope that Woothemes would like to share their view. Personally I think that the that Woothemes should develop something that is worth the claim or should revise their claim.

                                  Secondly I would like to two ask specific questions:

                                  1. Is Woothemes going to further develop the Vendor extension so it will match the claim?
                                  2. If so, what is the expected development time frame?

                                      You guys should update vendor plugin to actually have a vendor role. This would make it easier to extend the plugin and create templates for vendors on a website.

                                      Not to mention it would make it easier to use plugins like gravity forms to create user registration forms for vendors.

                                      I really like this plugin and I just think it needs some added functionality to make even more stellar!

                                      • Charge Vendor Subscription Fee to Become a Vendor

                                        Become a Vendor for a certain price per term (year, month, day...etc...).

                                        An integration across the subscriptions module and the Vendors module whereby the Vendors would pay a subscription. In our case Vendors would pay yearly, unless they already sold enough then we would not charge them the subscriptions fee.

                                        Id est...A vendor pays $10 / year....if the Vendor sells then our store takes a commission. If a Vendor sells enough for us to make more than $10 / year from commissions then we do not charge them the subscription fee.

                                        • Vendors Plugin - add ability to apply taxes with vendor commissions, not just product price

                                          There needs to be a setting that allows taxes collected on the sale of a product to be given directly to the vendor of the item in the tracking of commissions. Right now it is only applying the total of the product price (or percentage of price). Thus, I have to manually figure out which products had taxes associated with them (as not all products are taxes) and then calculate the taxes to be paid to each vendor.
