Features like Vendor Dashboard, Vendor Panel, Commission Setup, Payment Settlement Management, Product Management by vendors, and Shipping management by vendors etc. make it a desirable extension for any store sourcing products from multiple vendors.

"Become a seller" links can be setup by admin to appear on header and footer of the website.
- Order Split for vendors
When a customer places an order having items from different vendors, the extension creates different orders, which are then sent to respective vendors for processing.
Example: customer places an order with products P1 and P2. P1 is sold by vendor V1 and P2 is sold by Vendor V2.
In this case, the order will be split into two. Vendor V1 will get order for product P1 and V2 gets order for product P2.
They can independently process the orders.
In case of split, shipping fee is applied as per configuration in the website.
