Overview

Note- This module is an add-on of Webkul's Marketplace Module. To use this module, you must have purchased and installed Multi Vendor Marketplace first.

In the default Marketplace module, any customer can become a seller and add an unlimited number of products. There is no restriction for adding products after becoming a seller. Now if the admin wants to restrict the customer from becoming a seller or wants to limit the quantity for adding products, then Seller Membership Marketplace Add-on is the best module. The admin can restrict the customers so that they pay a fee for enabling each product that will be added from their account or the admin can restrict customers to pay a fee for becoming a seller and can also restrict them to add a limited number of products. The admin can also set sellers membership expire time.

The admin has configuration settings for the module. He can select "Vendor" or "Product" for “Fee Applied For". As we have used “Fee Applied For" option with the two more options "Product" and "Vendor" for the restriction process in the marketplace. If “Product” is selected, then the seller has to pay a fee for the approval of each product added from their account. The admin will set a fee amount for enabling each product. The fee will be either fixed amount or percent of the product price. If option “Vendors” is selected in “Fee Applied For", then the admin can apply the check on – Time and Number Of Products, Only Number Of Product & Only Time. PayPal Payment Gateway is used for making the payment of the Membership fee. The admin will have to enter his PayPal Account Id in which he'll receive the payments paid by the sellers. The customer will be redirected to the PayPal's Official site for making payment after clicking on the "Pay" button. 

It’s free to sign up for a PayPal account and there’s no transaction fee to use PayPal for your purchases. There’s only a fee for currency conversion when you shop overseas. You’ll always see what you’re paying. If you receive money for goods or services (such as from selling an item on your store), the fee for each transaction is 2.9% plus $0.30 USD of the amount you receive.

For more details, you can check Fee & User Agreement for PayPal accounts.

Use Case of Seller Membership Marketplace Add-On -

Seller Membership Marketplace is a wonderful module as it allows the admin to charge the user to a become seller or charge for approving seller's product. The admin can set the membership expire time as well. This way, no random user will become a "Seller" in a Marketplace when they have to pay to become a seller. It secures the Marketplace from Fraud Users.

  • The admin can set the type of fee amount as fixed or percent for each product approval.
  • The admin can apply the membership expiration check for the vendor on - Time and Number Of Products, Only Number Of Product & Only Time.

Workflow of Seller Membership Marketplace Add-On -

After the module installation, the admin will do the configuration under Stores->Configuration->Seller Product’s Settings. Here the admin will have to enter the PayPal Account Id, Sandbox mode Status and select the option for "Fee Applied For". As we know there is no restriction for adding products after becoming a seller in the default Marketplace. So the option “Fee Applied For" have two more options "Product" and "Vendor" for the seller restriction process in the marketplace. By the help of Seller Membership Add-on, the admin can restrict the customer from becoming a seller and adding an unlimited number of products. There are two ways, in which the admin can restrict the sellers -

Selecting "Product" in “Fee Applied For" option.

Selecting "Vendor" in “Fee Applied For" option. 

Case 1- 

If option “Product” is selected in “Fee Applied For" option and the seller add any new product from the seller panel, then the product status will be disabled. For enabling the product, the seller has to pay a Fixed amount or a Percentage of product price for enabling each product. There is a field in the admin panel called "Fee" where the admin will enter the fee amount. Then the admin will select either Fixed or Percent from "Type of Fee". If the admin selects fixed, then the customer will pay that fixed amount for enabling the product. If it is "Percent" then the seller has to pay the specified percent of the product cost.

After adding a product, the seller will find the added product listed under the menu called "Pay Seller Fee". Here all the products that the seller has added to his account will be displayed. To enable the products the seller will check on the product and then click on pay button to pay the fee.

For example, you add a new product called "Hat". Now it will be disabled on the website. For enabling it, you have to go to "Pay Seller Fee" menu and pay the fee for this product. After the payment completion, this product will be visible on the website.

Case 2- 

If option “Vendors” is selected in “Fee Applied For", then the admin can apply the check on – Time and Number Of Products, Only Number Of Product & Only Time. 

When the check is on “Time and Number of Products", then it will allow the seller to upload a limited number of products for a limited number of months that have been set by the admin.

For example, the admin sets 20 in "Number of products" and time as 1 month, then the seller can only add 20 products for 1 month only. If 1 month has been over and seller added products 15 only, now he'll not be able to add more products.

When the check is on “Only Time“, then it will allow the seller to upload an unlimited number of products for a limited number of months, that are set by the admin.

For example, the admin sets time as 2 months, then the seller can add unlimited products for the 2 months.

When the check in on "Only Number Of Products", then it will allow the seller to upload only a limited number of products, that are set by the admin. The product upload duration(months) will be unlimited in this condition.

For example, the admin sets 50 as "Number of products", then the seller can add only 50 products from the seller panel.

Benefits of Seller Membership Marketplace Add-On -

  • Based on the number of products and time, the admin can allow the sellers to add products.
  • The admin can allow the sellers to add unlimited products or can restrict them to add selected quantity of products in specific time.
