Happy to let you know that MultiMerch Marketplace 8.4 is now available in your MultiMerch accounts! Here are some of the highlights of the new version.
Vendor group selection on signup
Marketplace owners can now allow vendors choose their group when applying for a vendor account. If the vendor group has a signup fee defined, vendors will have to make a payment before their account is activated.
We now give marketplace owner more controls over commissions by introducing category-based commissions. It's now possible to specify listing and sale fees for individual categories in addition to vendor groups and vendors.
Multilanguage vendor descriptions
If you're running a marketplace with multiple languages enabled, your vendors will now be able to describe their store in different languages to make them more friendly to foreign customers.
Digital and free products
It's now possible to allow vendors create digital (no shipping required) and free (zero price) products to make it easier to use MultiMerch for digital marketplaces.
More control over product publishing form
MultiMerch settings now make it possible to show/hide pretty much all of OpenCart's regular product fields including images, price, categories and quantities. If you need to give your vendors This makes it possible to keep your product publishing forms as lite as possible should you decide to give your vendors an even more straight forward publishing experience.
Vendor group level settings
We've implemented a new system for vendor group settings. This means it's now much easier to create various group-level settings and restrictions such as maximum product numbers that will be applied to all vendors within a given group.
The new release is a Beta version at the moment so make sure to make backups before updating and don't hesitate to share your feedback with us!
