This will save the sellers from the stress of having to manually renew their membership.

After the configuration, the admin will have a section “Manage Seller Groups” to manage the vendor groups. The admin can delete, edit and add new vendor groups. For creating a new seller group, the admin will enter a group name, group code, select seller group restriction type, define duration, product count, fee amount, upload group image, select allowed marketplace features and seller group subscription type.

And if the seller selects the One-time subscription group type, the seller will be able to purchase the subscription just like he would do for any of the web store products he wants to purchase.


Restrict Sellers Product Listings
