A Plugin for your store Vendors is finally here!
This Plugin is ideal for store owners who are selling products on behalf of other people, for example downloadable products that have no stock count or a quick way of mointering how many units have been sold.
This little add on is very easy to use, just create a WordPress user with a Vendor roll. Next time you add a product that belongs to that Vendor simply select the vendors name from the Vendors meta box and enter in the % amount that they will be receiving from the total sale.
Every time a product is sold a record will be kept and the vendor can quickly checkup on sales via a dashboard widget. Each vendor has its own widget and only products belonging to that vendor can be viewed.
The future of this Plugin is absolute greatness. And functionality. Eventually this Plugin will be used on the getshopped.org website. Community Plugin Developers such as the guys at 9seeds.com (who developed the Affilaites Plugin) will be able to upload, manage and sell their own Plugins without having to deal with us directly. Just like magic it’ll all be Automattic!
So there you have, short and sweet just like this Plugin.
Grab yourselves a copy and give it a go, your vendors will thank you for it! Oh and don’t forget to tell us what you think – if you have any ideas that you think could be incorporated into a future release we’d love to hear your thoughts, just leave a comment.
